Riding out tonight to case the promised land.......
.....Hey what else can we do now
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow back your hair.....
So....we're taking a road trip....one that mothers don't like to take. Well, at least this mother doesn't want to take it. It's the one where you return home with one less child in tow. I've packed up some of his favorite beef bbq, made sure he has enough DeCecco pasta and good cheese to get him through, I picked up a few nice hand towels with lighthouses on them for his bathroom and I splurged on some special scented candles to leave with him. He's forbidden me to get a wreath for his door or little knick knacks and wall hangings. But, let me tell you--he has every fancy kitchen gadget there is and every spice he may ever need. Just like when he was a kid....he wouldn't let me dress him all fancy. So, I made sure he had the best socks. It's just what I do.
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold
