BEEP-BEEP






1961 Nash Metropolitan

This morning as I was waiting for a traffic light to change, a tan and white Nash Metropolitan crossed the intersection. I laughed out loud in delight because that was one of the used cars RTN had during the early years of our friendship. He painted colorful designs (much like those of his I will soon be posting) on the hood of his car. I don't remember the last time I saw a Metropolitan in Bellingham.

This afternoon, I remembered a set of "dream words" from RTN, from a few weeks ago, which puzzled me but make perfect sense now. What I heard in the dream was:

Gunnage.
Courage?
Beep-Beep!

I thought that was odd and funny, and it reminded me of RTN's sense of humor, but I hadn't made the connection between those dream words and a song from the 1960s about a Nash Rambler and a Cadillac. Although the YouTube video doesn't show a Nash Metropolitan, I believe that the song was written with the Metropolitan in mind.

RTN and I used to start laughing about something and be unable to stop. I'd love to laugh like that again. Seeing that Metropolitan today brought that back to me. My heart is beginning to heal.
