Night and Day

When I went on my recent 'family vacation' to Sydney, I had a really great time. It was a 'roadtrip', so we drove from Melbourne to Sydney, then Sydney to Byron Bay, then back through all of the time warped country towns like Tamworth and Tenterfield. Anyway so one day when we were driving we stopped in a country town and Dad took it upon himself to purchase some travelling music - the King crooner himself, Frank Sinatra.

The lousy $3 CDs did their rounds through the disc stacker and I will admit to enjoying it. We drove to get gelati one night in Byron Bay, and wound down all of the windows of the car and turned up Frank Sinatra as loud as it would go, then we just drove around and around laughing like madmen and watching all of the fake hippies with bare feet and Iphones stare at us. My favourite song is Sweet Loraine. You should download it illegally off Limewire, it's what Frank would have wanted.

  1. I did the same with my dad a couple of years ago. Windows down. Midnight Oil full blast, driving slowly down the main steet of Freemantle, Perth, windows down. It was hilarious. Especially because my Dad is bald and goofy.
