Dancing In the Car

Did you know that dancing in the car is not just for teen-agers?  It was a gorgeous day, unlike today with its overcast skies; the sky was blue and the temperature was just right.  I opened the sun roof, rolled down the windows and turned on the radio tuned to a Golden Oldies station.  Up went the volume and I started “dancing” and singing along to the tunes I listened to as a teen-ager and college student.  It was a great trip down the county road on my way to pick up my daughter from high school.  I’m sure that if she had been in the car she would have been mortified and would have slunk down in the seat, not wanting to be seen in the car with this crazy, eccentric woman she calls “Mama” who was rocking to the music.  At least, as much as one can while strapped in a car seat.  Oh, those were the days, truly.  But, no, I don’t want to go back.  I’m having more fun in the Now!

And that Now includes getting ready for the county fair which starts next week and I am getting ready my entries for the Knitting Division.  For the fair, I will confiscate the teen-ager’s # 13 Central Park Hoodie, by Heather Lodinsky, with my details of the CPH  here on Ravelry; and

I did not submit any entries last year.  After a feather-and-fan scarf won first place, I thought I would submit my FOs this year.  Anything knitted within the past five years is eligible for entry.  I will let you know how I fare.  (No pun intended!)
