Today I got to thinking about what items I would choose if I could "take it with me when I go." Here's what I came up with:
- Carl's guitar so he could play me something fun and upbeat.
- Dad's banjo so he could play along with Carl. The two of them used to sit down and play together often and the rest of us would sing along.
- Dancing shoes for Gramma. She was a spry little lady and would go out dancing with her boyfriend even into her 70s.
- A cherry-red '65 convertible Mustang for me to take all of them for a joy-ride.
Wow! I feel cheerier already. I think I'll go turn on some old-time music, close my eyes and dance with my Dad.
