Chevy Chased

A Journey Down Memory Lane

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


On this occasion, someone else drove the vintage Chevy to the levee. All I did was photograph it. And no, I didn't see Don McLean. Nor did I see any good old boys drinking whiskey and rye. But this'll be the day that I try.

David,

if you drink enough whiskey and rye, you'll either see "anything you want to", or you'll end up blind and see nothin'!

Come to think of it, I don't usually associate a Chevy with such a fancy hood emblem.....

My favourite song!!! Was it because I had finished school and was heading for the big bad world at the time.

Great catching up with you - you are so prolific and so interesting as usual.

Took me a moment to get the clever pun, and then I smiled and laughed.

After reading your American Pie post that great old tune is playing in my mind.

Nice shot David, by the way I have a tree stump posted, not the ones I was talking about,but one with fungi growing on it.

I love the quote and song reference. Wonderful photo! Thanks for the visit to my site. Peace, JP/deb

Gee thanks. I wonder how long that song's gonna be replaying in my head.

...Which wouldn't be bad, except for the unfortunate hollow acoustics from a botched lobotomy. Echo, echo, echo...

Did you happen to know that Don McLean wrote "American Pie," while in a local 'watering hole' in my city? "The Tin n' Lint" by name.

Hmmmm, there's an idea for a photo op for me, hu? ,-)

I love how the photo is JUST off center enough to give it a different perspective.

Thanks for the comment, I always try to return the favor. Nice images and interesting text to go along with them. I'll be checking back--

peace,

Don

...Yeah: 'peace' I know that sounds sarcastic coming from an American. I didn't vote for the bastard.....
