Safe and Sound

I'm back on PEI! It was a long 3-day drive, but I made it.

Interestingly, as I cruised towards the Confederation Bridge, I heard the following songs, randomly in a 10 minute span, on the radio:
  • Life is Highway (Tom Cochrane)
  • Carry On My Wayward Son (Kansas)
  • Highway to Hell (AC/DC)
All of them seemed appropriate.

I forgot how late the sunsets are in the north. 9:30 pm! The summer evenings last forever, and I was treated to a gorgeous sunset (the disc was down, and the sky was streaked with yellows and pinks against the clouds, with only the ocean as the horizon) as I crossed the bridge. Unfortunately, PEI was traversed in darkness, but I will have the rest of the summer to explore.

Next up: start the job, start the apartment search, find a gym, and wait for my stuff to arrive.


ps. If you are on PEI, and have read this far: do you have a smart phone? If so, which one? iPhone, Droid style, or Blackberry? What about your friends? I need to make a choice soon

I remember as I was driving to Minnesota during my move the song "Who Says You Can't Go Home" by Bon Jovi seemed to be playing on every station. I take these things as good omens!

PS: I dig the late late sunsets too!

That's awesome...

I did the same thing and tracked what song was on the radio when I left the hospital after our kids were born.

I think that they both got songs that at least in little ways matched parts of their personalities.

Action Girl: "Thank You" by Dido
Super Girl: "Detroit Rock City" by Kiss


DO NOT go with Rogers for a phone. Coverage here can be awful.

My theme song for the cross country move was from Smokey and the Bandit - "we've got a long way to go and a short time to get there..."

Congrats on the move, although I already miss your presence in STL.

Thanks for the notes everyone... K, I had that song in my head as well!

Smokey and the Bandit is a Hall of Fame movie, though I suspect one had to see it in its day, and near age 10, for full effect.
