While driving down the country roads the other day with my daughter beside me and one of my grandsons in the back, I suddenly recalled a favorite pastime of mine...
When I was a little girl, a riding in the back seat, I didn't have to be in a car seat and I wasn't usually wearing a seatbelt either for that matter. I would often lay down on the seat and watch out the window as the trees and blue skies passed by. I referred to these as my "tree tunnels" and they could keep me entertained for quite some time.
I snapped a few of the trees as we drove down this country road and thought I'd share them with you. I shot them from the moon roof in my car. I hope you'll enjoy seeing what a tree tunnel is!
I also wanted to share with you something that happened while Xander (my grandson) and I waited in the car for his mommy to return from a brief dash into the store. We had been listening to a CD that my daughter, Angie, had been playing for Xander. I had never heard the music, but I did like it! Xander was hooked on a particular song and seemed to want her to play it over and over again.
As he and I sat there, listening to the CD, he suddenly said, "Pork and beans, Nana!" I looked back at him and wondered what in the world he was talking about. I asked him to tell me again what he wanted. He said, "I want Pork and beans!" Thinking this was rather odd as I'd never known him to be a great fan of them in the past, I asked him again. "Pork and beans? You're sure you want pork and beans?" "Yep!" was his reply.
I picked up my cell phone and called Xander's papa to tell him to be sure to take out some pork and beans to have with our barbeque as Xander was requesting them. Feeling like a good Nana, I was happy now that he would be happy.
Moments later, my daughter returned to the car. I told her that Xander had suddenly expressed an interest in pork and beans and that I had called her dad to let him know to add them to the menu. She burst out laughing! Not knowing quite what to make of it, I asked her what was so funny. As soon as she was able to catch her breath, she showed me the CD jacket and informed me that Xander's favorite song on the CD was entitled "Pork and Beans!" Did I ever feel silly! LOL
