As indicated by my 20 minute increase in drive time to work, several thousand brake lights if there was one, and tons of kids standing along the side of the road it’s either a Luke Bryan sighting, or it’s time to go Back To School y’all! I’m sure some are celebrating while others are kicking and screaming. I was definitely the celebrating type! Me and school got along quite nicely 🙂

I was a kid of the 80s. Remember THAT era? Tie dye shirts, swatch watches (I so want mine back!) parachute pants, neons, florescents, HUGE HAIR and all things “jelly”. It was the decade of Aquanet.


This isn’t me. But this could have been me. That hair though.

Back to school bring back good memories, especially of mama making after school snacks. Everyone wanted to ride the bus home with me to get to the snacks! MAN we had outrageous appetites back then! Not much has changed. Well, except the hair.

Life is too short to eat ugly food y’all.
