It's funny you say that because last night with the 1st one we smelled DH turned to me and said, "That had better be the dog!"
We were both laughing so hard we had tears!

And yes, I remember station wagons very well

My favorite is when Bentley cuts a loud one, he jumps and looks at hs bum like "WHAT WAS THAT???"

ah yes, we had a blue Ford station wagon. I remember driving from CT to NJ to see my grandparents. I and my 2 sisters would always sleep in the "way back". I remember waking up as we crossed over the George Washington Bridge one night, and marvelling at the lights! Thanks, Pete, for the nice memory

Aw yes the rides in the station wagon...every summer the family would load up in the station wagon to drive up to our cabin here in the Sierra, where I currently live, from San Francisco.

Dad would load most of the luggage on the roof and tie it down with rope...this was before the day of roof rack cargo carriers. The dog or dogs would go in the very back...the kids, me and my two brothers and sister would all yell out "Shot Gun" which of course meant a window seat.

We always had to drive through Sacramento where the temps would often be over 100 degree's. Of course this was before air conditioning and rolling down the windows, yes actually hand rolling down the windows, didn't help much. So each of us kids had a wet wash cloth in a baggie that we'd hang out the window and then use to cool us down - it worked!

Now this was a four and one half hour drive so the parents had to come up with something to keep the kids entertained, no DVD's, no cell phones, no iPad's or iPod's...so we'd play verbal games. I wonder if anyone here ever played this game..."I'm Going To China and I'm Going To Bring..." The first person would say I'm going to China and going to bring a cow...the next person would say I'm going to China and I'm going to bring a cow and a bell...each person would have to say the complete list in the correct order until someone forgot and then they were out. The memory we kids had was pretty incredible...

When we drove by trucks we'd try and get truck drivers to blow their horns by bending arms and pulling up & down.

Or we'd drive by other cars and we'd all point toward their rear tire like something was wrong...terrible kids we were...the parents tried put a stop to this but kids will be kids...

We always made it, never an accident with the exception of running over the occasional porcupine.

Sorry Joyce...didn't mean to hijack your thread but Wendy just got the wheels turning.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

That brings back memories for me too....We had a station wagon, and Dad liked to travel. Every Spring Break he'd load us up and we would head East, been all over East of the Mississippi....Christmas break he'd load us up and we would go to Minnesota to visit family.

I won't go into details, would be to long, but we played the "license plate" game and did a lot of singing. Gosh those were good times....

Yep, good memories Pete! We did the same and it was a blast. Also it was before seat belts *GASP*

It's unfortunate that this generation will miss out entirely. Their face is always glued to a screen so they miss seeing the cows

That's so true, their face is always glued to a screen! And it doesn't seem to matter where they are they always seem to be face down tied to that monitor. But you know I'm sure our parents felt the same way about television.
