there's a long line of cars and they're trying to break free


i debated using this one for this month's theme day, but i think i like my palm trees with clouds more. this was taken from the los robles overpass looking down on the 210. almost the same location where this image was taken.

bonus points for those readers who know where the title of this post comes from.

Heck, this question is a piece of CAKE!!!

:-)

Very cool shot. ("from the streets of Sacramento, to the freeways of LA, we've got to keep this fire burning, and accept a little grey...")

I'm feeling insecure. I don't know...a song lyric?

Laurie, well done! You win bonus points in my book!

And PA, you are also correct - although not with the same flair that Laurie answered.

For those who are still in the dark, here are some details about the album that today's title is taken from - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_Eagle

Accept a little grey? Reminds me of this song by Susan Werner:

SHADE OF GREY
From: New Non-Fiction (2001)
Copyright © Susan Werner

God forbid you ever mention that you're looking for love
Mention it to anyone
And you'll be gettin' more advice than you could ever dream of
Cheap advice, ain't it fun
Hey, let everybody have their say
And at the end of the day
All you really get's another shade of grey

And everybody's gonna tell you 'xactly what you oughta do
If you're thinking 'bout a family
Have a baby, don't have any, really gotta have two
If you wanna live happily
Hey, let everybody have their say
And at the end of the day
All you really get's another shade of grey
And time just ticks away
With the whole world holding sway
While the sun goes down on one more twenty-four hours and

Everybody yippin' yappin' in the interview chair
Hawking their philosophy
Be a Christian, be a Buddhist, be a billionaire
Be like me, can't you see
Hey, let everybody have their say
And at the end of the day
All you really get's another shade of grey
So get up and walk away
Walk away

So don't tell me the answers
I'd rather learn them for myself
And don't sell me your answers
Put your book back on the shelf
With the new non-fiction and

When everybody's making weather in your overworked brain
Drizzlin' on your picnic
Just take a step in one direction and you're out of the rain
And your road's yellow brick
And hey you're off to see

Hey, let everybody have their say
And at the end of the day
At the end of the day
At the end of the day
All you really get's another shade of
Grey
