On the Road Again

Music Monday at Soccer Mom in Denial

Another trip. I'm packing my bags again. This time for a conference. I fly out tomorrow afternoon and return Saturday evening.

This song is in my head (for obvious reasons) and while not the best sounding version, I love that Elvis Costello, Steve Tyler and Kris Kristopherson are all on stage with a bunch of other folks doing something like singing with Willie Nelson.




And where am I going this time? To hang with Ambassador, in his home, for 4 days. Four glorious days.

Oh right, and go to a conference. With my entire office. Boss included. But they are all staying at the hotel and I'm staying with Ambassador.

The Cheshire Cat's grin pales in comparison to the smile on my face.

Is there a tune that perfectly captures your mood these days? Please share. And please, if you are going to link here, obviously link back to me. It's part of the game.

Be sure to visit Looking Into this week, the joint photoblog I share with Jenn in Holland. Jenn and I are turning the site over for a couple of days to Flower Child. Don't worry, there are still hundreds of our photos in the queue (you think I'm kidding?) but we wanted to share the space with others. Got a photo you want to share? Let us know at lookingDOTintoATyahooDOTcom.

While not really a country music fan I do love Willie Nelson. And his Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor.

Have fun with the Ambassador!

This song is a family classic in my home. Every trip we ever went on as a family (which was usually to vancouver and back 2 times a year) we would listen to this on they way out of city limits. It's a tradition that I still carry with my own family.
