I miss our Mustang….
Yes, you read that correctly. I miss the Mustang Chuck and I got for a wedding gift. We loved that thing for 6 years. Oh, and it was beautiful! A Green 1995 Mustang GT 5.0…oh, how I loved taking it out for a spin on a back road! I remember when things would get really, really, REALLY stressful Chuck would toss me the keys and say “Go for spin Baby, you’ll feel better!”. Ahh, the man knew the way to my heart! A fast car, great stereo system and a long, straight back road. Again, it’s the little things for me.
So, is there a point to this story. Well, yes, actually there is. Yesterday afternoon I went to pick up Ren from his Meemaw’s. It’s a little drive out to her summer place, so I put the van in cruise control and rolled down the windows. This drive takes me out onto some really great back roads. Lots of farms with hardworking families! Then it happened, THAT song came on. You all know what I’m talking about. THAT song for me is Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer”. The one that just makes you want to put your foot to the gas petal, crank up the volume and just let the wind blow your hair. Well, that’s exactly what I did (mind you I wasn’t speeding at all!). Although, it’s just NOT the same when driving a Mom mini van.
But, for just a moment, I was driving our pony car, letting my hair blow, and just enjoying the drive….
