Introducing... the COOLEST van on the block!

Yeah Baby!
Here's my Grandpa in the white dress shirt & farmers hat- see how he's looking at the van with great pride?! His oldest son really made the family proud! Seriously, how many of his friends back in Indiana could say their sons drove a van with the name of an article of clothing printed on the side! Take that boys!
I LOVE this picture... i hardly need to say anything because as you know, a picture is worth a thousand words & isn't that the truth!! But, being who i am & all, you know i gotta say something! Let's start at the left & move to the right.... Who loves him some plaid pants? The man that is watching his dog sniff my butt, that's who!! Now Chick.... look at the poor gal, apparently we were driving to California with 3 kids, 2 grandparents, a plastic banjo & a can of shaving cream to get her A NECK! California always has been ahead of it's time with the whole plastic surgery scene. I guess our luggage was FULL because there on the indoor/outdoor carpet step (hey- we didn't want crap on that shag!) are a variety of items: the can of shaving cream, what looks like a can of pumpkin (in case Grandma wanted to whip up a pie in Vegas) & then, i swear, it looks like a mini pumpkin... maybe they were afraid we wouldn't be back before fall & didn't want us missing out on pumpkin carving?... who knows! Don't put anything past people who would buy a van that says BLUE JEANS! I just got darling daughters kids meal toy magnifying glass out & I still can't tell if that's a mini pumpkin or not.... I love how my brother & I are both dressed in a red, white & blue motif! Chick was a big fan of 1976 for several years...
As I type, i suddenly realize i'm rockin' out to FREE RIDE...TAKE IT EASY.... in my head! If it wasn't such a pain to change my music, i'd go add that, but speaking of the music.... Guess who was crackin' herself up with Conway Twitty? Tight fittin' jeans?! Oh yeah, i was a real Casey Kasem this morning! Well, i hope the wait was worth it... Isn't she all I promised & so much more? I only wish i was more of a photojournalist back then like i am now....but then again, maybe it's best those memories live only in my mind...

I loved walking down memory lane with you. I eat this kind of stuff up. Why didn't we ever see the humor and love in the moment when we were in it? Someday darling daughter will have pictures of you two in your car and be telling stories like this.
