WE DID SOMETHING SO FUN... WE WENT
TO LEWISBURG, TN TO THE HI-WAY 50 DRIVE IN.
I WENT TO THE WEBSITE AND ADDED A FEW
PICTURES OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN THE DAY
LIGHT.  TRULY,FOR US ,IT WAS LIKE STEPPING
BACK IN TIME  .  WHEN WE SAW THE SIGN OFF
THE HIGHWAY AND TURNED INTO THE DRIVE-IN;
I ACTUALLY GOT GOOSE BUMPS.  JUST SEEING
THE BUILDING WHERE YOU DRIVE UP TO
PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS REMINDED ME OF
THE LAST TIME I WENT TO THE DRIVE IN.  IT'S
NAME WAS 42 DRIVE IN. NEAR WICHITA, KANSAS. 
I REMEMBERED HOW MUCH FUN I HAD AND I
EVEN REMEMBERED IT WAS THE BEATLES
MOVIE, "A HARD DAYS NIGHT".

WHAT WAS SO NEAT THIS DRIVE IN HASN'T
CHANGED MUCH SINCE 40 YEARS, AGO.  SO,
PRETTY AUTHENTIC.  THERE WERE NO SOUND
BOXES.  THE POSTS WERE STILL THERE. THE
OWNERS SAID PEOPLE BEGAN STEALING THEM. 
YOU NOW TURN YOUR RADIO ON IN YOUR
VEHICLE TO LISTEN TO THE MOVIE.   SHOWING
WAS A DOUBLE FEATURE: TRUE GRIT AND RANGO. 
WE ONLY STAYED FOR TRUE GRIT.  WE DECIDED
TO TAKE THE TRUCK AND A LARGE THERMOS OF
COFFEE.  I AM SO GLAD WE DID BECAUSE THEY
HAD FRESH FUNNEL CAKE (WHICH  WOULD HAVE
BEEN GREAT BACK IN THE FIFTIES, TOO!).  WE ATE
HAMBURGERS... HMMMMMM. THEY TASTED JUST
LIKE HOME MADE.   ALSO, I ATE SOME DELICIOUS
ONION RINGS.  THE DRIVE IN REALLY HAD A GREAT
MENU. THEY, ALSO, HAD PIZZA!  I HAD FORGOT
THAT THE RESTROOMS WERE ALWAYS IN THE
BACK OF THE CONCESSION STAND AND VERY
SMALL.   WE HAD OUR WINDOWS DOWN AND A COOL
WARM BREEZE BLEW THRU THE TRUCK WHICH MADE
IT JUST RIGHT FOR HOT COFFEE.  NEVER DID GET TO
COLD.  WHAT WAS, ALSO, NEAT WE RECLINED OUR
SEATS BACK AND IT WAS PERFECT FOR WATCHING
THE MOVIE.  TRY THIS IN AN INDOOR THEATER AND
YOU WILL WIND UP WITH A CRICK IN YOUR NECK.  THE
MOVIE WAS GOOD BUT OF COURSE, IT WAS NOT
JOHN WAYNE AS ROOSTER COGBURN.  I MUST SAY;
JEFF BRIDGES HELD HIS OWN... ALSO, HE, TOO, IS
A GOOD ACTOR.  WE JUST LAUGHED AND TALKED...
SO MUCH FUN!  I'M GOING, AGAIN AND AS SOON AS
POSSIBLE BEFORE THE BUGS COME OUT AND THE
HEAT SETS IN.  THE ONLY THING TO HOLD US BACK
WOULD BE WHAT MOVIES ARE ON.   OH, FATHER,
THANKS...  SO MUCH FUN!!!
