  • Friday nights need to do what Friday nights need! Birds need bees and ice needs whiskey. Doors need shuttin', lights need cuttin', lips need lockin' - under that pale moon. Sweet tea needs sugar stirrin', small town nights need both ends burnin', shades need drawin', hearts need fallin'…boots need knockin', knockin' boots!

  •  Find a road you've never seen. Take the top off your CJ-7. Let that surfside wind mess up your hair. Keep your radio loud coast to coast. Don’t waste another mile or minute savin’ all your sugar for a Saturday night. Make a little lemonade if lemons are all you got. See a sunset like a tangerine. Let your windshield frame the ocean. We’ll never be as young as we are tonight. LIFE IS SHORT, MAKE IT SWEET!!!

HOW TO STAY YOUNG (with help from George Carlin)

  • 1. Throw out non-essential numbers - age, weight & height.

  • 2. Keep only cheerful friends - grouches pull you down. 

  • 3. Keep learning - an idle mind is the devil's workshop & the devil's workshop's name is Alzheimer's. 

  • 4. Enjoy the simple things.

  • 5. Laugh often, long & loud - have a "laughasim" until you cry.

  • 6. Let tears happen - endure, grieve & move on. 

  • 7. Surround yourself with what you love - family, indoor pets, keepsakes, loud music, plants, hobbies...whatever.

  • 8. Health - preserve it, if it's poor, get help & improve it.

  • 9. Forget the guilt trip - the only trip you should take is to the beach!

  • 10. Tell the people you love that you love them - at every opportunity before it's too late.
