Cruisin’ Topless on PCH

Today’s Daily Post’s Daily Prompt asks, “a song comes on the radio, and instantly you’re transported to a different time and place.  Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why?”

I love the Allman Brothers ~ Midnight Rider, Melissa, Stormy Monday, Statesboro Blues, Whipping Post, Ramblin’ Man, etc etc… especially the song Jessica.  When I lived in Southern California, I would drive up to Santa Barbara (located in Ventura county, about 2 hours north of Los Angeles) to go check out the outdoor arts and crafts market, right on Cabrillo Blvd., right next to the beautiful Pacific Ocean beaches.  I would jump in my Mercury Capri convertible, put the top down (I had a license plate frame that read “Happiness is Driving Topless… 😀 ), and put in my Best of The Allman Bros CD. As soon as I got on Pacific Coast Highway, I would throw the ‘vertible into overdrive and blast the volume ~ it was exhilarating!  So now, every time I hear “Jessica”, my mind wanders back in time to 1993… a time I so wish I could go back to.
