Drive My Car


I was saddened last night when I heard about the passing of Dick Clark.  A legend that has transcended generations.  Rest in Peace.   "Music is the soundtrack of your life."


This day in history “On this day in 1964, Mario Andretti competes in his inaugural Indy car race, in Trenton, New Jersey, finishing in 11th place. The following year, Andretti won the first of his four Indy car championships (also referred to as the U.S. National Championship) and was named Rookie of the Year at the prestigious Indianapolis 500, where he came in third. Andretti went on to become an icon in the world of motorsports. He is the only man to win the Formula One World Championship, the U.S. National Championship (1965, 1966, 1969, 1984), the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500, the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring (1967, 1970, 1972) and the Pikes Peak International Hill Club.”

We had a hard time deciding on dinner tonight.  I didn’t plan anything, so we almost had to get Sushi.  I wish we were wealthy, so we wouldn’t have to worry about splurges.   We are not, so instead we settled for breakfast for dinner.  Popular in the past, and again tonight, Pancakes and Bacon it was.  Better than IHOP or Denny’s if you ask me (well I am the chef) and I think Luke ate a really tall stack of 7 pancakes.

Took Kyle to soccer practice and I proceeded to run around Centereach for 5 miles…..dangerous running in the streets after dark.  Why doesn’t Long Island have some trails or bike lanes, or sidewalks ?
Back in the car and home again in time to write the Blog.  Drive my car.

Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can't you see
I want to be famous, a star on the screen
But you can do something in between
Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told a girl that my prospects were good
And she said baby, it's understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

I told a girl I can start right away
And she said listen babe I got something to say
I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you

Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah

Keeping with the Beatles theme this week, we have to go with “Drive My Car”
