    I got stung by a bee once while we were driving around St.Louis, on the way back to Chicagoland from a summer vacation, back in the pre-air conditioned car days (one simply kept the windows open and hoped for a breeze, not bees). It was a ’57 Chevy…. We stopped at a drug store for some lotion-stuff, and I survived. I did not sing.

    “On the Road Again (Chipmunks Remix)” sounds hilarious.

    Richard, you could be a hit writing sing along songs for kids.

    If you could put it on headphones for the kids, great!

    Reminds me of the race car driver going down the straight at Summit Point who suddenly made a 90 degree turn to the right and drove into a ditch.
    The car wasn’t damaged.
    He had his helmet off when we got to him.
    “Bee in my bonnet,” he told us.

    One of my kids always needed to use the restroom 20 minutes after we pulled out of the gas station. One day, when we were in eastern Washington (most desert, with these signs on the highway saying ‘No Service’), the “I gotta pee” whine started up. I threw a paper cup into the backseat and said, “Here, use this!” We never heard the complaint again after that. And no ‘accidents,’ either.

    We did a lot of long distance car travel when we were kids.
    My mom claimed she would never have a two door car, because,
    in a pinch, she would pull over in some could open front and rear doors on off side of a four door and a kid could sit on the door sill.

    my father’s favorite refrain was, “why didn’t you go when we stopped back there…?”
