Readying the vehicle for the trip

OK, so this isn't our vehicle, but there was a day not too long ago when this was my mode of travel....of course it was the 70's and 80's and I was merely a child. But it is with much chagrin and some fondness that I view this car. For those of you really young people, it is called a station wagon...for Jean 2, it looks just like my dad's car, huh? Although it's not the most updated of cars, it would come in handy on a trip like our upcoming camping expedition. Hm, maybe I'll stop by that house and see if they want to loan it out. LOL

Here's to memories of bologna sandwiches, riding down the highway laying in the back (nope, no seat belts) waving at people who drove behind us, and no air conditioning since Dad said it made the car use more gas.

Oh-there is NOTHING like a wood sided paneled station wagon. YIPEE!! I never had the LUXURY of growing up with one of those. Darn the luck! :) But-yet it does remind me of your dad...hee hee. I just want to borrow one to take my girls to school in JUST FOR FUN!

Ya know, that almost looks like the station wagon in the first Griswold Vacation movie....except, it was green. That's what you should have gotten, a green station wagon....

Have fun this week!

OH YES!! This is the station wagon of my childhood...only ours was blue. And there were bologna sandwiches and we sprawled all over in that thing. My dad and your dad must have been friends. We got the same line about the air conditioning!

Good to visit with you again.
