Drive-In Movies

Do you remember drive-in movies?

We used to go the Drive-In. Not inside-to.  We would park outside by the fence as close as possible, so we could hear the sound.   Dad would climb over the six or nine-foot wooden fence to turn the speakers up as loud as they would go..

I remember the night my youngest brother, Luke, was born. Mama was in labor. We kids didn’t know that, but she was.  We went to the drive-in that night. The hospital was only a mile or two straight down the road from the drive-in. Our house was maybe ten or fifteen miles away. I know that now. They wanted to be close, and not have to get us up when it was time to go.

Daddy and Mama just said we were going to the show, if they told us anything. So we sat outside the fence and watched the movie. Mama brought quilts because we always went to sleep.

Well, we went to sleep and Mama and Daddy waited until it was time for Mama to go to the hospital. Next day, we had a new brother!

Kids were not allowed in the hospital rooms in those days. I remember standing on the grass and looking up to see Mama in the window. She was waving at us and probably glad to be out of that car. 

I don’t remember being surprised. I think real young children can’t be surprised. Now that I think of it, I’m sure I’m right. Everything that happens in their little world is natural to them.  I remember being sleepy, hungry, happy and scared.  I think that’s all very young children know. They don’t know the difference between being good or being bad. How could they know? They are only good. The bad comes later.


Normal everyday doin’s of country folk who didn’t miss the ‘stuff’ they never knew, and the kids who wondered how city kids ever had fun.

Hate Has Become the In Thing

It seems that the country has turned its negativity into political power, and it’s so magnetic that it’s slowly pulling us all in.  I can’t believe what I hear and how easy it is to divide into groups, one against the other.

This division has no purpose but to grab more votes from those who are easily led.  Why do they fall for it?   So many just do not have the capacity to think for themselves, or to think logically.  The lies are blatantly ‘in your face’, but the blind, deaf, and needy don’t want to see or hear or even have to think too hard.  They’re so easy to persuade to jump from the cliff.  Why do they have to drag the rest of us down with them?  Why do they have so much hate in their hearts?

Many citizens forget (or were never taught)  who is supposed to be in charge, and are freely tossing away all their rights.  For what?  What will be their reward?  Embracing miserable poverty and complete domination.   Who really wins?
