On The Road Again...

I'll be on the road again tomorrow morning...   I absolutely love road trips - always have!   When I was a kid, my parents would pack up the car and we'd head south!   We'd stop off in Clinton, NC to visit my Aunt & Uncle - they had this huge house that sat on what seemed like a dude ranch (and a really big, scary dog - maybe two).   There was absolutely NOTHING for miles and miles...   Seemed like we would stay there for 60 gabillion years (in reality it was only a week - if that...), but I knew where we were headed next and I wanted to get the show on the road - Disney World baby!

Those were the days...starring out the window, letting my imagination run wild with possibility!   Playing "punch buggy" with my sisters, trying to keep my Backgammon chips from moving all over the place (I'm such a nerd)...

This time I'm headed north - to Napa.   So I'm packing up the car (minus Backgammon), rolling down the windows (it was 88 degrees yesterday), pumpin' up the jams (that's hysterical) and letting my imagination run wild!   I may even play "punch buggy"...

What are your fondest road trip memories?

  4. Nice shot! I know you are a multi- tasker but I hope you were not driving when you captured that moment. Napa sounds lovely and the the weather should be great for the rest of the week. Bring back a few fine bottles of cheer.

  9. Hey Michelle - thank you! No...I wasn't driving when I captured this moment. The FJ was actually off to the side of the road (behind me) and I was standing in the middle of the road (as if that was much better) - LOL...

    I'm definitely looking forward to the Napa trip - albeit short.

  12. Hey KK
    All I have to say is WOW! How did you do that? Now why did I ask that question.
    My famous memories are some of yours, don't forget the Cruise after that Disney trip. Also one of my favorite was visiting that Zoo in Arizona.
    Keep up the great work. I think you need to submit more to art galleries.
    Love Mommy
