The great drive-in culture of our era was a unique and fascinating experience, and a very special treat on a Saturday night. I remember my Mom making this huge paper bag full of popcorn to put on the backseat between my legs. I loved watching her salt it, and the grease stains from the butter along with the huge brown stains on the bottom of the sack. I always went in my pajamas. That was the best part of all. Then, when the sun sank down below the rim of the trees and the majestic rectangle of the movie screen, the action commenced.

There was also nothing like the snack bar. Between movies, the snack bar was Grand Central Station. And was it any wonder? They had all sorts of candy, popcorn, ice cream and soft drinks. If you needed it, they had it. If you wanted to check out the girls, go to the snack bar. If you just wanted to get away from your parents- well, snack bar city.

It was a well known fact that girls were smarter than boys. It didn't matter who she was; if she was female, she was smarter.

Girls were well-behaved and paid attention in class. They had good penmanship and raised their hands often. Is it any wonder why us guys would have nothing to do with them?

 

How about the safe monkey bars at the playground?
