Meet Corrie!

The Name’s The Thing

Have you ever named an inanimate object? (Your car? Your laptop? The volleyball that kept you company while you were stranded in the ocean?) Share the story of at least one object with which you’re on a first-name basis.


Terry has always wanted a Corvette. He never thought we’d be able to afford one, but time and circumstances made it possible a few years ago.  I won’t tell you what we paid for it, only that it was an incredible bargain.

love to drive our Corvette!  It’s so much power in such a small car.  I feel like The Little Old Lady from Pasadena when I’m behind the wheel.  For you kids out there, you can find that song on You Tube, I’m sure.  The Beachboys.  It’s still a cool song, after all these years.  Maybe I’ll post it for you.

In the meantime, here’s Corrie just before we brought her home.


I’ve tried a couple of ways to post the song, can’t seem to make it work.  Copyright issues, maybe.  Check it out on You Tube 🙂

  3. It’s actually a Jan & Dean song, and was covered by the Beach Boys a few years later. Anyhoo. Every time I see a gold Corvette of that style, I think of you driving along with a big grin on your face!
