Me too... and when they arrogantly walk through the door that we graciously opened, it's too late to "accidentally" trip them anyway :).... So we may just as well just keep smiling.

Nope, not a cent. Twas a horrible thing of me thinking about tripping them. A shove maybe? Also, just kidding...

And didn't and I didn't realize about the pixie stix, until you mentioned them.

Wonder if they still make Big Chew... the shredded bubble gum that came in the look alike tobacco pouches? That was THE stuff when I played little league. With the huge bubbles we were blowing combined with the oversized helmets... it was a wonder we could even see the baseball to hit it.

There was a place I knew that sold all that stuff, not so long ago. Now it's a Casey's. But you can still find it at Cracker Barrel. I loved the coconut. They have the root beer barrels, circus peanuts, stick candy of all flavors, fudge. All the stuff from when we were kids.

... rolling down the drivers window just about all the way down, with the family, and putting that big old heavy speaker hangin' on the window at the drive-in ...

then the teenage years began and who cares what came over the speakers ... we were makin' out, lol ... the double dates were fun ... or a bunch of us would all bring our cars and pull in together ... Pam and Debbie had a Rambler station wagon we all piled in one time ... their brother was so big we called him Baby Huey ... Man, we had fun at the drive-in ... Remember when?...

I loved the drive in. There's still one out by the lake. And my first car was a Rambler 4 door. I loved that car.
