Many a bleary eye hovered over their cup of Joe this morning! Why you ask? Summer ending and the last weeks of vacations, family reunions and the simple need to get away. Most had just returned from their destination of choice. Instantly, I did a quick flashback…..images of knees and elbows, objects flying for unknown reasons in the back seat of that paneled station wagon. Mom and dad yelling over “Jeremiah was a bull frog” with “Don’t make me come back there!” Only…… I…. was the mom.
Ahh! Summer. I could definitely sympathize and empathize with all. Most talk was positive about the days ahead. A few days of back to normal, then the ever popular pre-season sports schedule. Holy Smackers! As my friend EddyBetty over at http://eddybettyshreddy.wordpress.com/ would love to say. Time is flying. Wasn’t it just Memorial Day?
OK! Maybe 24 hours of back to normal? Next week……..wait a minute…..is that Jaws music I hear?……Back to school shopping. AHHHHH!!
I say grab the family, pack a snack and start your engines to squeeze in another “holiday road adventure” before we all settle in for the school year. Maybe one of these roads might entice you!
Hairpin Turns. Breathtaking Scenery. Buckle Up!
