About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

A few months back, I drove past a car lot and saw a very eye catching car.  Marine Blue and chromed out.  Oh, it was a flashy little vehicle, so I stopped to see it closer, which then lead to a test drive, which then lead to me asking Jerimy to come test drive it with me and man you should of seen his face when I showed him the vehicle.

My favorite color is blue, I'm attracted to it like a moth to a flame, and even though I wasn't necessarily in the market for a new car, I couldn't help but get a little excited about test driving it.

It was a five speed, just like I like, it was blue just like I liked, and as a Harley loving girl from way back, I can't resist chrome, no matter what it's on! *laughs*.....

Jerimy instantly started asking me if I was having a midlife crisis.  I was like, "WHAT?!?! WHO ME?!?!?!" and he was like "YEAH YOU!!"

I'm only 35 aren't I too young to have a midlife crisis?  I know girls mature faster than boys, but I don't think it applies to midlife crisis does it?

So anyway, we went for our test drive....it was fun, but after I brought it back to the lot, I was wavering on my wanting to buy a new car, especially after all the flack I was getting about having a midlife crisis....so long story short, I didn't end up buying it.

So the other day, I'm at Ray's Northland, picking up a salad from the Deli for lunch, when I see the car.  THE CAR.  Marine blue, the chrome once again shining in my direction, I could see the blue racy looking bucket seats, the 30 day tags from Tom Ahls, it was THE car, I was certain of it....and then I got to see who bought MY car...my midlife crisis car......

Ok, so this really isn't the guy, but the guy I saw, was just as old!

If that car was my mid-life crisis,
it was this guy's LATElife crisis!

I kinda want the car again now!
If he can have it, why can't I?



  1. He probably won't be around too long, so you could just wait and buy it at his estate sale.

    1. Good Plan Anonymous! I may just have to do that! I'm going to keep my eyes on the "obits"...see who left behind a flashy PT! ;)

  2. You should have bought the car, screw what people say. Do what you enjoy. I get tired of people saying things like thought about my car. It is who i am.

  3. Per your midlife crisis checklist-

    I stopped checking for white hair YEARS ago...I had them when I was in my early 20's!!
    I have always wanted to bungee jump!
    I'm not a guy but my ex-husband and I did own a harley and I'd love to have another one :)
    I always have brushed and flossed diligently...I'm OCD about my teeth, but this is not new
    I do spend lots of money on vitamins but that's because I have Multiple Sclerosis and also not new :)
    I have 6 tattoos and definitely always am thinking about getting more!

    I'm 43 years old and it sounds to me as if I've been in a mid life crisis since I was 20!! hahahhaa!!

    Oh..You should have bought the car! Do what YOU want. What others think is over-rated ;)


Leave me a message! I'd love to hear your thoughts...AND...while I may be slow, 99% of the time, I'll leave you a comment back! So get interactive would ya!? :) xoxoxxo, ~hl~
