Quick post today as I take a short break from telling tales from my vacation. After much planning and comparing of schedules, I was finally able to get together yesterday with Princess Patti of Ansonia in the Valley to head over to northwestern Connecticut in the hopes of finding some of fall's finest foliage.
In spite of feeling very much like Death eating a cracker on Thursday and part of Friday, I felt pretty good on Saturday morning so I donned a warm sweatshirt, filled up the gas tank, and pointed the car southwest to meet up with Patti at her humble abode to begin our "Girls' Day Out". While I was driving down Route 395, I couldn't help but notice that the foliage along the side of the turnpike was looking pretty nice so I carefully shot a couple of pictures along the way.
With my iPod plugged in to the stereo I was cruising along singing with the music while enjoying the drive when a song came up in rotation that was one of "Amanda's songs". Like a bolt out of the blue I found myself missing my former co-pilot and as I looked at the empty passenger's seat I was reminded of all the fun roadtrips that she and had taken in the past. Darn - I hate when that happens!
So, in honor of Amanda who wasn't along for the chance to look at rocks and trees (ah yes, I can hear the sarcasm all the way from Beverly!) I thought I'd post a few of her favorite songs from her favorite groups and admit that - yep - I do miss the kid from time to time!
