We discovered many “oldie goldies” as we walked through the park. I personally could have done without the overly exuberant band, but the cars were beautiful and the folks friendly. There was something for everyone, pets, adults and children. I picked out my favorite, Dan his. A Route 66 excursion is penciled in on next year’s calendar.
After the car show we went to a local restaurant for an early dinner. The eatery was in and of itself worth the drive. It was as the town, small. It probably is the main diner in town. The place was scrubbed shinny and clean. The server was friendly and polite as were the fellow patrons. “Wimpy” as we sometimes refer to Dan because of his love of the burger, ordered his usual cheeseburger. I chose the fish which I rarely do. The portions were huge and melt in your mouth delicious.
The old days while filled with warm memories, are not necessarily better. There were hard times then as they are today. It does seem in our parents’ era mutual respect and a strong sense of character was more prevalent. It is good to look back and bring the best of our past into our present. Maybe we could start with a convertible?
But let your communication be, Yes, yes; No, no: for whatever is more than these comes of evil.
