My children always said
that when they were growing up
that I could never drive home
and sneak up on them.

The sound of
The Beach Boys
always gave me away.

I so enjoyed
driving my sexy Miata
with the top down,
blasting beach music.

And today,
I'm listening to it again -
with the voice of Jillian Michaels
interrupting occasionally -
"you're getting stronger'

Somehow it all seems to go together -
Del Mar, Ventura County Line,
Down Doheny Way -
well, at least that was where
I was driving my
cute little Miata.

These days
find me driving a farm truck
and walking on a tread mill
to my beloved Beach Boys -
and I wouldn't trade my farm
for all of the beaches in California.

You can say that
I'm happy here
with my life
that's the best place to be.

Now I just want to have
a bit less
of my happy, healthy self.

Blessings to all who visit here,

  2. Funny, how we often don't wind up the way we expected to and thought we wanted to, but we wouldn't change it for anything.

  3. Me I am listening to Roy Orbison!!! I am so proud of you for your weight loss!! WE gave up sugar and table salt and we both lost a bunch of weight.

  4. Have to love the Beach Boys but I will admit my favs during my late teens early 20's were more in the line of REO Speedwagon, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath then onto Tom Petty, John Cougar...but still I loved the Beach Boys too.

  5. I loved listening to favorite music on my NordicTrak too, Lynn. The music takes you anywhere you want to go!
