Many summers ago going to the drive-in was such a thrill
for me. Those long hot summer nights seemed to
disappear while at the drive-in. A trip to the concession
stand was what I really looked forward to, more than the movie
sometimes. Waiting for that old sun to go down, seemed to take forever,
then the cartoons came on, Popeye, Casper the Friendly Ghost
was seen most of the time. There were always at least three movies
sometimes more. Dollar night was great, where a whole car load got in
for just one dollar, no matter how many were in the car. Later as a teenager
we sometimes would stuff the car like a can of sardines. Other times we would hide
two or three people girls and guys in the trunk and then after we were inside they would
jump out and get in the car. After a while they caught on and had somebody watching
and they threw us out.
Many memories of my mom and her good friend John taking me to the drive-in,
we all had a good time. Now those are sweet memories i will never forget. They are very
few drive-ins and they cost so much that i have not been to one since 1969
when my wife Judy and I were just going steady, we saw the "Love Bug" with my mom
and her 5th husband Art.
Such sweet memories drive-ins were.
