Ugh!

No, it’s not SOTU, it’s VDH driving around.

Update: pretty good and popular SOTU, but then again, anything’s got to be better than this. Pow Wow the Indian boy, loved all the animals and the woods.

    Of course, it’s not always a ‘bad trip…’

    I once drove Pacific Coast Highway, on a moonlit night in June, from Los Angeles all the way to San Simeon (Hearst Castle). Well, my girlfriend in fact drove, which was great, because I got to take in the scenery with no distractions. Selfish, I know, but there it was. Anyway, unbelievable is the only word; I’d never taken a drive like it before, and I’ve never taken a drive like it since. Pacific Coast Highway sometimes hugs the coast, twisting and turning with the shore, and sometimes hugs the mountains, rising and falling with the land. How can I describe the sensation? Especially with my girlfriend’s slightly heavy foot, my stomach was always jumping a little, my heart racing a little, my breath catching a little. A scenic tour, by natural roller coaster, under silvery California moonlight: that’s as close as I can come. Speaking of which, topping it off was a moment of serendipity, when I realized I’d brought Ella and Oscar, with their version of Hampton/Mercer’s Midnight Sun. There couldn’t have been a happier coincidence.

    At least that’s the way I remember it…
