It’s one of those pre-Spring days, where there is snow along the roads but the sun is shining warmly, melting away all the gunk from past weeks.

I have just dropped my kids at my sister’s house after their morning at school. Tami and I trade babysitting duties on occasion, and as I back out of her driveway, I realized I have three free hours. Three. Free. Hours.

The sun through the windshield warms my face and brightens my soul. I am driving west, and the purple snowcapped mountains kiss the bright blue sky. The colors are vivid in the clear air.

Queen is on the radio asking Is this the real life, is this just fantasy? and soon Freddie Mercury is crooning about killing a man and earning from Beelzebub his very own put-aside devil. And then he gets existentially nihilistic: Nothing really matters. Anyone can see. Nothing really matters to me. (Anyway the wind blows.) ((((gong))))

It feels glorious to be alive. Life is gooooooood.

(This version was filmed live at Wembley Stadium. Bohemian Rhapsody starts at 1:00.)

Your “perfect moment” jpg looks like a wheel of birth control pills :) I’m glad you are having such a great day!(oh, and I totally spelled “wobblog” wrong again. I don’t know why I want to call it weblog. Sorry!)

Sounds like good times! I could put myself in the car with you. I would roll the windows down and crank up the heat and the radio. Ahhh . . . Spring and a little Queen!

Colorado can be so beautiful when spring starts to sprout. But your story would have only been better if you thrashed about your head like Wayne and Garth.

One of my favourite things to do is to drive by myself on a bright sunshiney day- which reminds me of another song….
