Rite Spot

Many years ago, sister, our

dog shep and I would take a trip

up to the rite spot, which was up

the railroad tracks a ways.

During summer months a very

enjoyable walk, not so in winter,

but sister had to have her Pepsi,

so up we would go, we would take

our empties back to get our refund

from our depoist which in turn paid

for the new six pack of Pepsi.

We also bought our milk and other little things

there.  The Rite Spot also served as a Diner

for weary train travelers.

Great memories there, they closed it down

many years ago, so sad, but time moves on.

    Reminds me of when I worked at STop and Go. Before I was clerk there, I used to buy candies and other treats with my sisters and we'd sneak them into our house thru the basement.(mom hated us spending our allowance on all that junk, but we would not be denied. haha) Good luck with your publishing! Luv, Andrea
