. I was a little girl and we were in our car at a drive in and in those days, they showed the children's feature first and my Dad would go to the snack bar and get us grape soda and pop corn. We would eat popcorn and drink our soda and watch our movie and we were supposed to settle down and go to sleep with our pillows and blankets when the second movie came on. I never did. I still have some horrifying images in my mind from movies I wasn't supposed to see. I still have never watched The Graduate. I had some serious doubts about my parents, as they laughed and laughed. I do have fond memories of drive in movies with my parents. We would save soda bottles that we would find and turn them in and when we got enough money we got to go to the drive in. My parents must have pitched in money as we lived in the country and we didn't drink soda pop.
Oh well I hope you have a wonderful week. I can only say I am looking forward to April. I do love April. Such a glorious month.
