Living in Southern California has meant many things to me over the years. The beaches, surfing, skiing in the mountains, Disneyland and enjoying our beautiful deserts. But one thing we had lost was our ever popular Drive-In Movies. Where you had to drive over those huge humps to get your car lined up just right so that you could see the whole screen and still be close enough to the speakers to get them onto your car window. The last one closed down a few years ago. How sad. I can still remember going to a Drive-In with my wife and we both wore our PJ’s. Taking along a pizza and a 6-pack of beer, we had dinner and were ready for bed! It was the ultimate in summer entertainment during the dog days of summer. The last one to close down was a mere 3 blocks from our home!
Now, word has come that a new one has opened here at the Orange County Fairgrounds today!! They showed ‘Shrek 3" tonight! They now have discarded those speakers that you hung on your window in favor of a device that you clip on your car antenna so that the sound comes thru your radio. Also missing is the guy who rode around on his bicyclce to make sure that nothing ‘inappropriate’ was going on!! Damn!! That was the FUN part! LOL! We are soooo going this weekend!! I only wish that I had a ’57 Chevy to drive there in!! But it should be a Blast!!!! I’ll let you all know!
