Reliving the '90s on my walkman


It's amazing what you find when you start cleaning, and I don't mean the surface cleaning you do before company comes over...the deep cleaning that only comes from boredom or the need to remove clutter. I found my tape player/walkman and a bunch of tapes from the '80s and '90s. I'm so excited! As I listen to Lisa Loeb's Tails cassette, I'm reminded of living in Michigan after getting out of the Air Force, my sister crashing her new blue Ford Escort into a tree on Broomhead Road, driving my dad's big red stick shift truck while listening to this tape, meeting my future husband, jumping on trampolines, my first apartment. It's truly amazing how a song can make you remember so much you have tucked away somewhere between dropping the kids off at school, dinner, dishes, etc. I wonder what songs I listen to now will make me remember 10 years from now...

Well...welcome to the bloggy world! As for the car, it's a Honda pilot. Maybe I should write a letter to Honda and let them know what their car can do! One thought, your comments have a no reply email. I didn't know if you knew that. If you want your email available so folks can respond you may want to change your settings. If you want to keep it private that is up to you. I didn't know about that when I started and folks let me know. Again, welcome. Can't wait to see your work!
