Been There Done That   2 comments

Dear BJ,

This prompt was made for me.

I’ve been there, done that and worn out the T-shirts. I am settled down now and have started this blog to pay homage to my Aunt who I sent post cards to over the years.  I welcome you all back as I recount those times and add the simple pleasures I experience around here.

I do remember telling my father in law Gunnar, “Hvar sem hann lagði höfuð hans var heimili hans.”   That is translated into Icelandic by Google from Norman Whitfeld’s and Barrett Strong’s hit song performed by the Temptations, “Papa was a Rolling Stone.”   Something like, “Wherever he laid his hat was his home.”

I think I’ll hang my hat on the beach chair and watch the Grand Strand for a while and let the other Nomads chase the moss.

P.S.  This is in response to the Word Press Daily prompt: Rolling Stone.

P.P.S.  Big thanks to Zemanta and Chris Benham for a perfectly pinned Tyrolen hat.
