The Kiss.....


I tiptoed over the hot coquina, his deck shoes with the laces hanging, one step before me. He climbed in and the little electric motor hummed, the roof folding like a sunset behind him. And he smiled. This wasn't the first time and it damned sure wasn't the last time. We had thousands of highway miles between us. I leaned over, fell into the Mustang, and kissed him hard. Stood on the mirrored parking lot and shot peace signs at the rear view mirror while he gunned it, periwinkle confetti flying....

And we laughed....

The last kiss. And we didn't even know it.

Happy anniversary, baby........

Peace~love little one, Enjoy!

Electric.....I don't know what everyone elses fascination is, but in my world I really was riding a black stallion, arms raised to the sky, wind kissing my face....Mile after topless mile!

Sweet KJ! I've gotta go check my box! Whoo! Hoo! And yup, it was the perfect ending...the perfect love story....the fairytale come true....

Babs....We always knew our time would run out, we just didn't know when, or where....And so we decided to run as fast and hard as we could to the edge....living, loving, and laughing....free....
I wouldn't have changed a moment...

I was vacuming the other day, and lo and behold, what do I found? A little butterfly drawing my son had drawn from school--I immediately put it up on my refrigerator---I'm feelin' the love....I love the "kiss" stories...

singleton said...

No....I love it! Butterflies are free and show up in the most unexpected places at the perfect time! Feel the love, girl, feel the love.....

And yeah, you've busted me on the kiss stories....there have been a few, huh? I can't help it....we were lucky like that... in love...

The Mustang sits in a big red barn on 300 country acres like a time capsule. I occasionally fire it up just because I like to hear the magnaflo exhaust and sniff the fumes over the smell of the 4 legged Mustangs that once occupied the same space. It looks out of place with Florida tags sitting in the valley of mountainous area. It likes the curvy roads but longs for the straight aways of the Sunshine state. I'll hand it down to my Son one Day so that he can create his own memories in the black stallion.

singleton said...

LOL! It would look out of place to me with Florida Tags on it, too! Clink! To your little one, may he ride free....
