Welcome to Twisted Mix-Tape Tuesday
Where any combination of songs you think barely touch the topic are welcome, and you can play however you like. As Music Director for this lovely cruise I feel it is completely un-necessary to follow the rules as written (I dare you to find them).

This weeks topic: Summer Vacation (or really any summer or any vacation, or anything you want)
Our yearly migration to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is on the horizon.
The boy wakes up every morning with the question poised on his fire-starting lips. “How many days until South Carolina now?” Yes, how many now? We begin the countdown to our month in paradise the day we head back to Chicago. It is the thing that gets us through the Chicago winters. The blah’s of February and March when you are truly questioning whether having a job is really as important as we think. Maybe living in a cardboard box in some warmer climate would be fine. We could get two and have a double wide.

Beer Margarita and a nice sunburn tan. Think back…or forward. Maybe for you it’s just sitting by the blow-up pool in your front yard on a couple of rickety lawn chairs with a wine cooler in your hand, some Grateful Dead on the boom-box (yes I said it), yelling at your kids to stop landing on top of each other from the makeshift slide you dumped in the pool.
Whatever summer means for you. I’d love to hear.
This my friends, is the playlist aptly named Hilton Head on my iPod (minus a few)
The ride down; did I mention we drive?
Because what guy sitting on a stool on a pier doesn’t play this song?
Or this one: (btw my husband was at this concert. I was 6.)
Another travelling song.
