#59 1951 Mercury Convertible
I've never paid much attention to what I drive. I just don't care much about cars today. But I do love vintage cars and I had hoped that somewhere in this year long celebration I could ride in a 1950's convertible. .. preferably down the Pacific Coast Highway!
So when I saw this one parked in the grocery store parking lot, I thought maybe I should just wait for the owner and ask for a ride. But who does that? Probably the same kind of person who keeps a chiffon scarf and some cat-eye sunglasses in her Honda Element... just in case the opportunity arises! But I was in a hurry and had a husband waiting. "It will only take a second!" I assured Don as I whipped on my scarf and glasses and handed him the camera. I dashed to the other side of the shiny red car so it looked like I was in the car. Don didn't even roll his eyes. He's used to this nonsense.
Luckily I have a good imagination. I jumped back into the car feeling windblown and giddy after my "ride". "Thanks, Don!" I exclaimed as we drove off. "That was fun!"

57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
