Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

January 6, 2009


When I was just a little girl, way back in the -- oh, let me see -- the mid 1960s, our family car was a turquoise Rambler station wagon. It was the only station wagon we ever had (although I would go on to own a succession of white Subaru station wagons) and I remember how much I enjoyed sitting in the way back. That's what we called it, the Way Back, and the name has stuck in my mind, as in "Phillip, will you please get the groceries out of the Way Back?" Clayton and Spenser generally sit in the back seat, but we were four people this day so they got to enjoy the vantage point from the Way Back. Clayton soon settled down for a nap and Spenser tried to climb over the seat. Road trip!

P.S. to my brother-in-law Rick, Happy Birthday! Your card is late but the sentiment is there!
