Blue on Blue
Blue skies and this '55 T-bird became one at a local Car Show this past weekend. Throughout my formative years there were just too many cars that came to rest in our driveway to recall them all, but a few jump out at me: the gray Willys Jeep with the roof, that we were not to touch in the rain, the creme and red station wagon, that often took the neighborhood to the beach, the huge, wine-red Jag that rumbled down Stevens and of course the robin's egg-blue Thunderbird with those comfortable leather seats, that took me off to Rochester and Part II of my life. That 'american dream' was certainly very much alive in our driveway..., and there was always lots of apple pie on the table too.
