Once again having to remind my self of the basics. The most important truths in life are the simple obvious ones, even though I keep forgetting them and having to relearn them. The greatest joys in life are the simple ones. A hug, a kiss, an act of kindness and ...........ok, I can’t help myself......driving down the freeway with the top off of my convertible with the wind blowing through my remaining hair and loudly playing and singing with classic Canadian songs, my song of the summer being Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway”. And then stopping in Chilliwack and going into the Superstore signing loudly the last song I played, Shania Twain’s “Man I feel like a Woman. People did look at me until I got my urge to sing under control . I wish my daughters were with me. They embarrass easily and like all fathers of teenagers I like to embarrass them. One of the few areas of my life where I achieve frequent success.

I want to express my thanks to Canadian singer Tom Cochrane for his great song “Life is a Highway“ which I played repeatedly at loud volume in the Mustang with the top down all the way home from Abbotsford to Harrison Hot Springs tonight and sang with loudly as well.
I also want to express my regret for my extremely sore throat and vocal cords now.
I also want to express my apologies to anyone who lives within one half mile of the freeway or at the south end of Agassiz.
Cars and music. Better than singing in the shower. The simple joys of life.
