Cruisin' Along

The Three Muses     TTMS-Song Lyric

This a stamp from Shirley's 2 Girls who are no longer in business, unfortunately, they had some really cute stuff. 
When I saw this challenge at Wicked Wednesday and the one at Three Muses I went straight to this stamp in my stash. I have taken a little poetic license with Chuck Berry's song Ridin' Along in my Automobile, but I think you get the jest.
Picture this--summer 1967, on my way to N. Texas University, where my mother and Aunt had attended and Aunt had graduated from. Their colors are green and white. My Dad had helped me buy this cute little black Volkswagon (I didn't have a dog), and I was still blonde in those days. I met my hubby to be that summer on a blind date. By the time I had finished 2 summer semesters and one fall semester, hubby to be and I had decided to get married. He was in the Navy stationed in Virginia, I wanted to drive my cute little Volkswagon to my new home, but in those days you didn't buck the parents. My Dad decided that was too far for me to drive alone, so he kept my car, which I think he secretly wanted from the beginning, he and I were the wild ones in the family. I'd been in Virginia about 3 weeks when I got a picture of my car covered in hot pink flowers saying, " This is what it should have looked like when you were driving it." My Dad and my sister, who is 6 years younger than me had a blast with that car. Oh yeah, and my sister had a gray poodle. 
After this long story, that brings up another song--Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end...

Happy Creating--
