'Cheese Burger in Paradise"
Monday, March 29, 2021
So today's theme began with "Come Monday" a song by Jimmy Buffet. Got to thinking back, way back! I remember one summer a friend of mine, Doug and myself were headed to the beach. We got stuck at the drawbridge that connected Morehead City to Atlantic Beach/Bogue Banks. The wait was usually about 10 minutes long, back then it seemed like an eternity! Sitting in traffic with the windows down in my first car , a Datsun 310 hatchback, I think it was a 1980 model? What comes on the radio, non other than Jimmy Buffet singing "Cheese Burger in Paradise"! I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well, good God almighty which way do I steer
For my! This has been many moons ago, yet I remember it like it was yesterday, we sit there in the traffic and began to sing along with the radio, I do not condone drinking and driving but yes we had a few beers in us and sang like we were up on stage performing for all of our fans! Funny how a song not only can bring back a memory, but can preserve it as well. Since than the draw bridge has been demolished and a high rise stands in it's place, no more waiting in traffic and singing, feeling a little nostalgic on this Monday morning!
