Dirt Road Anthem

Dirt Road Anthem

Yeah I’m chillin’ on a dirt road
Laid back swervin’ like I’m George Jones
Smoke rollin’ out the window
An ice cold beer sittin’ in the console
Memory lane up in the headlights
It’s got me reminiscing on them good times
I’m turnin’ off a real life drive and that’s right
I’m hittin’ easy street on mud tires

Dirt Roan Anthem, sung by ~Jason Aldean~

Ok, first off, I have no idea what it means to be ‘swervin’ like I’m George Jones’, so don’t expect an explanation from me! 😀 Second, this isn’t a completely fitting lyric for this picture in that I’m on a paved road here, not a dirt road! But, in my thoughts are the back roads where I grew up. There are still some trails that haven’t changed much since I’ve been around, except to be a little more overgrown. Every once in awhile I go down one of them, stick my head out the window of the truck, close my eyes, and inhale deeply! This is the time of year when the newly leafed trees smell their best. The dirt trail maybe has a puddle or two on it from the most recent rain, but I can dodge them easily. I think back on how many times I’ve been down this road, with Dad, or maybe with Grandad, either way, we’d end up at the pasture to check on the cows and enjoy a nice prairie morning, or evening, whichever time of day it happened to be. I know that if I got into the truck with Dad and dawdled down the back trails now I’d feel like I was a kid again. Back when Dad was younger than I am now and I was just a little tomboy who loved cows and fishing and all things outdoors! I can see it in my minds eye, and it makes me melancholy for those times, I wish I knew then just how fleeting that part of my life would be.

I’m out on the road in one of my favourite sims, The Last Forever! I’ve taken a liking to this little chapel with the playboy bunny nearby.

A new round of Men Only Monthly, or MOM for short, has opened and Le Poppycock has the ‘And So On’ pose packs A & B. I’m a believer that women can use men’s poses and still look great, and I think I prove it here! Each pack has six poses in it, all casual and relaxed. Olivia, of Le Poppycock, always manages to create a men’s pose that’s aloof and relaxed, almost indifferent! I love that!

Also at MOM, is the M107 hair from CHEVEUX! This is from the black and whites pack.

I love this little outfit from Candydoll! It’s the Megan Panties and Top in green. It’s available now at Rewind! It’s all about the 80’s this time around so get your leg warmers and off shoulder tops out and get physical!

The ‘Poe Tattoo’ is from This is Wrong and it’s compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

I love flats in the summer and the “Not So Shabby’ flats from Nutmeg are super cute! They’re exclusively for the Maitreya mesh feet and come in five colours. As always, I couldn’t decide and just got them all! They’re available at the latest round of Shiny Shabby.

I do have a little choker on, you can’t really see it, but I want to mention it anyway! Burial is at this round of the Limit8 event and the Moon Choker, gold is the exclusive for it. It’s not the limited item, so no fear of it not being available when you get there.

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

  1. Sounds like a lovely childhood, Liz, and you’re right – we didn’t know how fleeting that would be 🙂


    1. It had it’s ups and down, Moz! I look back on some moments of my childhood and I can feel the day like it was yesterday! I’m not sure if having such strong memories is good or bad, but it makes my heart ache, sometimes.
