Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
When I was young, the future was where all the good stuff
was kept, the party clothes, the pretty china, the family
silver, the grown-up jobs. The future was a land of its
own, and we couldnt wait to get there. Not that youth
wasnt great, but it came with disadvantages; I remember
the feeling I was missing something really good that was
going on somewhere else, somewhere I wasnt. I remember
feeling life passing me by. I remember impatience. I dont
feel that way now. If something interesting is going on
somewhere else, good, thank god, I hope nobody calls me.
Sometimes it's all I can do to brush my teeth; toothpaste is just too stimulating.

My kids love giving their mom a hard time...calling me "hippie mom."  I gladly wear the title.  Using funny phrases and worrying about recycling, and listening to the music from "my era" , loving Steven Tyler and mourning when trees are senselessly chopped down, are all good things.  Heres a list that'll make you smile.  


Can you dig it?

Catch my drift?

Catch you on the flip side.


Don't give me that jive.

Dream on!


Far out!

Foxy mama!


Gag me with a spoon!

Gimme some skin.

Good night, John boy.

He's such a wackoid!

Here's the skinny...

Keep on truckin'.

Let's blow this taco stand!

Let's book it out of here.

May the force be with you.

Mellow out!

Outta sight!

Pop a wheelie.


Say what?

Slam dunk.


To the max!




What's happening?

Do you remember any '70s slang that you'd like to add? 

Peace Out Everyone!!
