Thanks to Isa for cluing me on the Eric Clapton song. I’m adding some of the lyrics here:

*I’ve Got A Rock’n’roll Heart

I’ve got a feeling
we would get serious girl.
‘Cause right at this moment
I could promise you the world.
Before we get crazy

before we explode

There’s something ‘bout me

You got to know

you got to know.

I get off on fifty seven chevies

I get off on a screamin’ guitar

Like the way it gets me
every time it hits me.
I’ve got a rock ‘n’ roll

I’ve got a rock ‘n’ roll heart.*

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Mine too, Dot! My dad’s was metallic pink, stick shift, dual exhaust and I had a driver’s license. What could be sweeter?

  • My folks had a metallic pink one, too, though I don’t remember is it was stick shift. My husband and I bought an old blue one years later and then gave it away to a neighbor in return for watching our property when we were selling the house and moving out of state Sigh…..
