As we live the life of ease...


It was pouring down rain when we left the party last night. Kim, Senia Mae, and I had to scramble, trying to keep as dry as possible while getting into the car. We were all loaded up, strapped in, belts on, cargo in place, I turn and look at Kim asking, "You've got the keys, right?" For the record, this is an almost daily conversation we have that continuously follows the same endless pattern of forgetfulness.

"No. You had the keys. Remember they were in your pocket?" Kim replied slightly annoyed that we were having this conversation again.

"Yeah. You grabbed them out of my pocket as we were crossing the street. I loaded Senia Mae in the back and you packed up the bags." I said with complete certainty.

So there we sat, belted up in the car for a couple of minutes, going back and forth over who should have the keys as it continuously rained outside. Obviously someone must have had them we were IN the car. Sitting there dumbfounded, the car suddenly locked itself then unlocked, locked then unlocked, beeped, beeped, locked, and just as it was about to autostart, we both realized exactly who had the keys....Senia Mae! She must have grabbed them as I was strapping her in...oops!

Laughing at our craziness, we headed north out of the city. There was a time when we listened to the original White Album from the Beatles...now replaced by Disney Kids Sing the Beatles....which, when you sit down and think about it, is also a little crazy realizing how life suddenly turns around.

Senia Mae has a fit over "Yellow Submarine" and as we listened to it for the seventeenth time in a row I thought, the lyrics are actually create a pretty good mantra. "As we live...the life of ease...every one of us...has all we need...skies of blue...and sea of green...in a yellow....submarine..." And on life goes!
