deck the halls at the sunset drive in

    Newer Older

    I keep forgetting that most places don't have drive-ins anymore. We do and it still shows movies every week, though I think it's more popular as the weekly swap meet locale.

      ok, i admit it. when i saw the thumbnail, i read that as "Deck the Balls," and thought "what is that? Christmas porn?"

      i think i ate way too much batter from my banana bread mix tonight.

      I freakin' love this place. When I was little, they served hot cocoa in cans. They would pull it out of hot water with big tongs and wipe it off with a towel before giving it to you. I would hold it through the whole movie to keep my hands warm, and it would steam up the windows. My parents love the memory of their four little girls lined up in the station wagon with cans of steamy cocoa. Now I take my son there. But we bring our own food because I'm a hippie freak and they don't have that cocoa anymore.

      way cool! Love it...its what Christmas looks like down under (southern hemisphere)...blue sky, sunny, warm.
      There were so many good photos in the advent calendar thread today, it was hard to pick just one. This one was one of my favs for today.

      Last time I was there, there were only two cars: Mine and someone else's. Granted, it was some boring football movie, but I wish drive-ins were still popular.

      I went during that last huge thunderstorm we had and it was, to understate it, incredible. Too bad I didn't have my camera and a tripod...
