Fast and Fabulous


Billy, Naho, and Kya; August 14, 2009; noon in Central Park NYC.

There is nothing quite like a fast and fabulous trip out east for a weekend visit. I took the red-eye on Thursday night and flew back home on Sunday on time to go to work Monday. I went to attend my son's wedding on the footbridge in Central Park in NYC on Friday, August 14, 2009. The little flower girl is my granddaughter, Kya.

I took this picture in the backseat of a 2009 snaked 605 horsepower convertible Shelby, with the top down of course, at the exact moment we reached 100 miles per hour on a freeway in Massachusetts this past Saturday. We were blasting The Fray's "Never Say Never - Don't Let Me Go" and the bass was thumping and the engine was humming.

It was an exhilarating weekend and all week people have been commenting that I look younger. Now if I could just bottle it and sell it and I'd be rich.

I love your theme. Yep, it sure would be nice to be able to bottle up some good free wheeling fun, young at heart, fountain of youth. I'd buy it for sure!

speed, top down, loud music, exhilaration indeed!

Wow, that's some car.I drove a snaked Shelby (an original one, signed by The Man) that almost took my neck off just getting out of the parking lot.

Bottling and selling exhilaration - that would be something that would sell! LOL!

Lovely idea, getting married in the open in Central Park.

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

Well, you little highway star, you! However, you lose your femme card for talking about a car more than the wedding!

This post gave me energy so I am off to the office!
