Taking Five .....

Have you ever been driving down the road and allow your mind to wonder? We are all guilty of listening to the radio and/or talking on a cell as we drive- but when was the last time you just stopped rushing from point A to point B?
Life goes by so quickly and as I have taken time to read back on some of "Bootopia's" posts- I have been reminded of things that seem to get lost in the shuffle. The smell of Honeysuckles after a summer rain as you drink your coffee outside in the morning with a beautiful sunrise or something as simple as watching a child and a puppy aggrivate each other-lol.
A friend of mine recently came for a visit and as we were sitting outside, He made the remark about how beautiful the stars were and just how long it had been since he had actually been in a place in which he could take five minutes to enjoy them.
So, next time you are having a really stressful day- do yourself a favor and do as was instructed to "Happy Gilmore" lmao- "Find your Happy Place" and take five- it may make a large difference in your day!!!

You are quite welcome Oasisgirl! We are all guilty of allowing ourselves to get in a hurry- yet at times it pays to stop and pick that flower on the side of the road (if the owner doesnt catch ya-lol) inhale its fragrance and smile for a minute of our memories....

Speaking of picking that flower.. ummm I was in Kauai last month visiting my mom and I passed this tree full of lichee! I was a bad boy, it was in a persons Yard and part of it hung over the main road so i turned the car around and drove past it again. Then drove past it again! I couldn't get it out of my head! I wanted those juicy fruits.. LOL! I had Sexyblonde with me and she kept saying to me just go ask them.. but I wasn't listening LOL I pulled up next to the tree and jumped up on the rental car and took a handful, jumped back in the car and drove off.. all the while SexyBlonde was laughing and laughing at me!.. I had failed to noticed that the owners where all sitting in the yard watching me do this and where crackin up at this white boy stealing their fruit from their tree! not to mention the cop down the street that wagged his finger at me! LOL! I was so embarrassed.. but then again allot of people laughed about it.

Oh by the way it was sooo tasty

Sirluvs, it is GREAT to see that more than just Myself has done things like this-lol. When I was a little girl every spring I would go around the neighborhood and from each yard I would take only one flower but by the time I got home, my mom had a gorgeous bouquet to enjoy-(it was years later that she admitted to being allergic to most of them) lol.
