Two queries:
Has a song ever "scared" you?
(and)
What are sparks for you?



SCARED BY...

Once upon a time, "Convoy" frightened me. Luckily, that isn't the case anymore....

Every time I hear “Convoy” by C.W. McCall, I think of a fateful late night on the road between Illinois and Pennsylvania, circa 1978. It probably wasn’t the first time I heard the song; it had, after all, already ascended both the country and pop charts in late 1975 and early 1976, debuting November 29, 1975, and spending 15 weeks on the country charts, six of those at #1. But, it was one particular night that defined the song for me … for a while. These days, though, the song’s historical nature intrigues me.

A SPARK...

My road trips and enthusiasm for meet'n'greets, gatherings, cruises nights, etc., have many sparks. This is one:

LoL TULBOX! Wonder if that was a nickname?

Saw one a while back & believe that I even had it posted here. It was some mid 90's sedan that said BJ MOM. There was a guy driving the car......
