Here are the final two halves of the Trains, Planes & Automobiles series.
Hope I haven't overloaded you.
And tomorrow we begin to wrap up Thanksgiving 2010.
GETTING HOME FOR THANKSGIVING: AUTOMOBILES PT.3
Moving on down the highway in our Automobiles, as we get closer to Thanksgiving you may find yourself in a Traffic Jam.
Lots of other cars out there, so I’ll try to musically help you avoid that Road Rage.
After that, a song written by Woody Guthrie- but I doubt this is what he had in mind, lol.
Then a song from not too long ago that has always touched me- there’s just something about her situation, and the plaintive way she sings about it.
I’ll have some more car trivia for you, I think.
And then a few things about trying to start your car in the Winter- including a devastating rocker by a guy better known for his folk and country-rock efforts. This one just flat out rocks! I love it!
Finally, I will begin a look at different MODELS of Automobiles that will carry over to the next episode.
What kind of car would God drive?
One guy’s father has the answer in song!
Next, the final chapter in what has been a 3 year series.
Here's the link to Pt.3 for what most people call Cars:
ROCKOLLECTIONS: GETTING HOME FOR THANKSGIVING: AUTOMOBILES PT.4 CONCLUSION
Opening this final chapter in a 3-year series based on the great and funny movie, Trains, Planes & Automobiles, about Getting Home For Thanksgiving, I owe you a T-Bird song.
I’ll pay up.
It seems to me, I didn’t try to check any stats or anything, that I would have to say there are more songs about Chevrolets than any other Automobile.
With maybe Cadillac a distant second.
So I’ll begin a set about those great Chevys with a memory rush for people of a certain generation.
Perhaps a little older than me, but I certainly have heard it before.
Notice I said memory rush and not necessarily a pop tune!
After that, maybe we should take notice of some Mercurys, and a last look at an unidentifiable car.
We will end this sizeable series with the best Automobile advice anyone can give.
And a few final thoughts and wishes from me to you, for this most right and proper American Holiday:
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Life is a Gift
Today before you say an unkind word- think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food- think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife- think of someone who is crying for a companion.
Today before you complain about life- think of someone who went too early.
Before you complain about your children- think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep- think of the people living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive- think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job- think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down- put a smile on your face and be THANKFUL you’re alive and still around.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
