Yesterday I was looking for an old photo (from 2004) of a different neighbor, a boy named Chase, who had dropped by to see us while my father-n-law was here last week.
I will have to share more about Chase’s stopping by later (because it was very cool), but here is the picture I was looking for:
And since it has been a while since I joined in Cee’s Oddball challenge – here are some oddball (or funny) pictures to share:
Lastly, a quick story as I wrap up this post.
We were leaving this theme park one day, with that tired feeling, especially because I think we went a few times that week (they have really good rates on season passes).
So…. we were leaving one evening and the park was playing the song Drive by the Cars.
I liked other songs from The Cars way more, but I knew this one from the airplay it received (it was a big hit in 1984).
Also, my old
sweetheart, headache boyfriend, Ron, used to love The Cars, so I knew their songs.
We were walking and walking to reach the gate that day – and Drive was playing –
and it sounded SO good!
There was something about the acoustics (I think they had some Bose in the fountain section)
but there was something about the melody –
something about Rick Ocasek’s voice —
it was beautiful and just a pure joy that day.
Funny how a single song can do this at the most random time.
I walked a little slower – in my own little music world – as our mini group now headed towards the rows and rows of cars –
and whenever I see those Jamaican bananas, I think of Drive, and here it is now:
have a great day and if you have off for the MLK holiday –
I hope you have a great day of R & R
and if you are back to work – hop sit is a great day as well.
