Take Me Away

Take Me Away

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour, only me at the wheel
I want it to shine, to be only mine
The engine has to be just one of a kind

How many dollars do I need sir?
You know I sure don’t have a lot
There must be something we can work out
Well, I’ll take it anyway

I guess I could make room for one, a bottle of rum
You and me together riding into the sun
Live without care, with the wind in my hair
I’m driving through the desert, yeah I’ll go anywhere

Take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour if you know how I feel
Alone with my mind, leave my worries behind
I might even reach the border, it’s just a matter of time

I said take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Oh I’m going to San Diego, here I come
San Francisco, it won’t be long
Sacramento, yeah in the sun
I just might go

Oh, I said I’m going to San Diego and San Jose
San Fransisco and hang by the bay
Sacramento, yeah all the way
I just might go all the way to Mexico
I just might go all the way down to Mexico

I’m so glad I had a childhood before technology! It’s a good thing, because it’s not like I had a choice in the matter, we all just kind of happen when we’re meant to. When I look back on the first road trip I remember the family taking, and then think about parents today and what they keep kids occupied with on road trips, I have to chuckle. Nowadays it’s get the earbuds and throw ‘Finding Nemo’ into the DVD player or play games on the phone and everyone just stay in your own world. The first trip I remember took place when I was about 5 or 6, just a young’n, the destination was British Columbia to see my aunt and uncle and it was Mum and Dad and my sister and I. I remember being super excited because Mum had bought us new stuff for the trip. We had pads of paper with new pencil crayons and regular crayons, I had a bunch of new little plastic horses to play with, and the pièce de résistance was a blowy thing. I remember it perfectly, it was hand held, made of beige plastic and had little piano keys on one side in all kinds of colours. I have no idea what it was called, but my sister and I both had one. The idea was to play it like a little keyboard while blowing in it, but needless to say the blowing in it was easy, the playing it and making music, not so much. As an adult I’ve asked myself this many times, why………when parents normally don’t want the kids to have toys that make noise, would Mum buy, not one….but two noisy toys for us? I like to think that my sister and I were really good kids and were generally quiet, so the little bit of noise we may make, wouldn’t bother anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever asked her, I’m going to……see what her take on it was. Back in those days a road trip consisted of lots of nibbles, new fun toys and watching for license plates from other provinces and States. For some reason I remember watching for cows too……even at that age I loved cows! 😀 A road trip now isn’t that much different for me, there’s nibbles, and watching for cows, I still check out license plates but I don’t have the blowy thing anymore, now it’s just singing as loudly as possible every good driving song I know.

As you can see, it appears Liz is on a road trip! She’s ended up in the back seat, but that’s OK…..lots of time for thinking and watching the miles pass by! I’m in the ’64 Chev Impala SS which is in front of the diner at Mother Road.

I want you to take a look at my featured item today! It’s the ‘Jaclyn Earrings’ from Elle Boutique and exclusive to the Vintage Fair. The Vintage Fair is an event that I look forward to and with it only here once a year, I’m always excited when it finally opens! It’s everything retro and Elle has created these earrings that are right outa the ’70s! They’re HUD driven with 16 colours for the hoops, 7 metals and they’re also SL materials enabled. They resize on touch and oh…did I mention they’re really great looking? The Vintage Fair runs until June 24.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and it’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Sabrina Top’ is from /erratic/. I love this top……so summery and cool!

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Maya’ set of poses from RK Poses.
