Random drivel.

.

I don’t usually pay attention to the Facebook memories section, but this one from an old blog friend popped up the other day and I had to laugh.

.

.

It really does.

🤣

That sounds simple and delicious.

If you try it before me? Let me know.

And for Brian at http://brianlageose.blog

Because we were chatting a while back about the ridiculous old station wagons we had to drive as teenagers. Here’s my husband and I posing in front of my parent’s ‘62 Ford Falcon.

Complete with wood on the side… because we stylin’.

If you look closely you’ll see the entire passenger side is crumpled from me side swiping a telephone pole when I was 16.

Oops.

This baby had a top speed of 51mph by the time I got her…. complete with vacuum wipers, a manual choke, and AM radio. I was the envy of exactly (count ‘em) none of my friends.

Please don’t judge the head to toe stone washed denim… it was the late 80’s. We had to.

Finally, here’s Lord Dudley…

In typical goober mode.

He should, but thank God he can’t.

  1. Ha! Chickens, stone/acid washed denim and hand-me-down vehicles, ahh, good times, good times. Aww, the hubs looks so young, as does River, but every picture I see of him he’s gray, and never smiles. So, it’s great seeing a smile on his face. But gurl, that hair, I LOVE IT!!

  2. 1. I love the vintage photo.

    2. Your VERY period-specific outfits are a scream!

    3. Yes, I can see the crumpling.

    4. I’m having flashbacks to my own crumpling, wherein the damage was much more intense. (I know, it’s not a competition, just sayin.) Your crumpling looks like a bit of ironing might do the trick. It’s almost cute!

    5. Should I turn this into a Past Imperfect? Hmm…

    1. 1. Thank you.
      2. Sadly, I have a treasure trove of cringe worthy fashion photos.
      3. The crumpling was more impressive if viewed from the side. Unfortunately I do not have that photo.
      4. I’m sure your crumples were more devastating. Mine left the vehicle drivable, but without passenger side access.
      5. Most definitely!

      1. Actually, umm…possibly! We have an old chair that was in Tara’s family. I’m not sure what the material is, but it may very well be Naugahyde.

        We also have a beanbag, Pet Rock, and of course, many lava lamps.
