Jump On The Bus, Gus

In case anyone was wondering what ol' Trash has been up to the past couple of weeks, I thought I would quickly bring y'all up to speed.

I've been quite the accidental tourist, doing a little vacationing...all while out joy-riding on a train of thought. 

I started in a state of confusion and quickly moved on to one of chaos.  From there, I found myself in a state of panic, barely missing the great state of oblivion.

(WHEW!  Take it from me...don't waste your time.  Ain't nothing to see or do in either locale...nil, nada!) 

Feeling the need for a change of scenery, imagine my surprise at being caught in the states of shock and wonder, while allowing myself to get lost wandering in a state of apathy!

(Again...don't waste your time or gas. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.  Heck...I'll send you a t-shirt if a souvenir is all you're wanting from this useless state of mind!) 

Fortunately, while meandering in a state of flux,  I allowed the highway of life to lead me to a supreme state of consciousness.  From there, it was just a hop, skip and a jump prayer to my final stop...the blessed state of grace.

I bet you can guess WHO was waiting with a light on...just for me.  Now I know what the "G" stands for in GPS.

(Hint:  It ain't Gus!)

I plan on visiting here for quite some time and would love nothing better than to take up permanent, full-time residency.

(This paradise location I highly recommend...five stars!  In to join me for a return visit?)

Just give me a second to slip something into the ol' CD player for our road trip.

(WARNING:  I like to sing along...loud!)

  You bring the strawberry Twizzlers and beef jerky.

I'll bring the Yoo-Hoos and hang-down.

We'll stop for a Stuckey's Pecan Log.

Pack light, don't forget your toothbrush, slap on some red lipstick, GO before we go...and let's get this dog and cat pony show on the road.

I call shotgun!!!

Low Tide High Style said...

I'm in! But to make it complete I think we need to forego the CDs in favor of a good 'ole 8 track player! ;-)

Tina said...

Count me in! I'm ready to go and standing at the curb waiting for you to pick me up! Better yet, I'll go pick you up! Since you called 'shot gun' I can only assume I'm driving!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

I'm ready! I think you're gonna need a bus with all of us who are going with you!!!


Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Don't know where we're going....but I WANNA GO TOO!!!

Sue said...

The Carpenters! Kind of funny, I live right by California State University Long Beach and they have an entire auditorium named after them. They always have musical venues there. Hey, send me a ticket, and I would LOVE to join you on a road trip!

Take care, Sue

Rebecca said...

I am on this trip, I could use the state of peace and grace right now after back to back shows. I will bring my cd by the O Jays and we will jump on the Love Train and spread it from town to town.
Love you

You make me smile every time I visit! We have got to get together soon! I need to drink wine and laugh out loud! hugs. Dixie

Prior said...

I'll just "restate" everyone...I'm on my way, I'll honk when I come around the corner, so be in a state of readiness. You are so fun, I'd follow you from state to state anytime.


Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Ok, I'm we need 99 or 199 bottles of beer on the wall?!

Olive said...

Okay my darling poet you made me dizzy. In fact I was already that way from the heat and humidity but you ended with grace so I assume you are okay. hugs♥O

Unknown said...

Just don't strap me to the hood like Robelyn's mannequin! We all know how that turned out....... My daddy always said "Dont cuss, Call Gus, he'll cuss for all of us"

Miss Gracie's House said...

I've been on that same trip lately myself...just wish I know where we were thankful for G...that is grace, right...that's what I need.

Laura said...

I needed your smart to the core reminder that to really find 'G', I need to head in the right direction.

HE doesn't leave, I do though-

when I panic, worry, feel anxious...

Dad gum it.
Why do I do that?

You're so smart Anthony.
