San Luis…


Summer market, famer’s market, teeming with people out to get fresh produce or a good meal. Ya gotta love the kids. There’s nothing better than a hot ear of corn on the cob! And beer? We settled in at BBQ joint and Colleen got a flight (of beer). San Luis Obispo was such an exotic faraway city when I first came across the name back in the early ‘70’s while working in a publishing house. My niece later married here. And now, Colleen and I have dined. I never actually thought I’d ever be here. Funny how life intersects with my reality.

Drive In Movie

_DSC1898The clouds you see are a harbinger of things to come. Our destination was the drive in movie. _DSC1914You have to wait till dark. Duh?! We were there to see Minions. I’ve been under a rock. Jules has seen them before. I’m clueless. It’s what happens. You blink and you are old! And? It rained! Oh brother! It was hot in the car. San Luis Obispo, it’s a town. And there is a drive in movie. Not many are left in the world. I was last in one in Maine and before that in Syracuse, New York. The sound is locally broadcast over the FM radio station. _DSC1946The have a concession stand. Family movie, no kissing required. Do people still try to smuggle others into the place in the trunk?
