I pray your Memorial Day weekend was blessed, happy and safe.
Today's guest has visited before and shared Thoughts, Treasures and our Spotlight so we'll just jump right in and welcome Janet Lynn back to our blog! Take it away Janet.....
The Drive-InsMy husband, Will Zeilinger and I co-write the Skylar Drake Murder Mystery series, a hardboiled detective series that takes the reader to 1950s Los Angeles and other areas of the west. SLICK DEAL begins in L.A. with clues that lead to Avalon, on Catalina Island.
Partnering has been a wonderful way to work. Each of us are independently published authors and now co-write.
And one cannot think of drive-ins without the window speaker that hooked onto the driver's window so all in the car could hear. Finding one that didn't crackle was a feat in itself. The snack shops were full of goodies, I saw my first Coke in a huge paper cup there and the biggest box of Jordan Almonds I had ever seen. It rivaled some of the biggest boxes of theatre candy today.
I think I was nine or ten years old when my family went to see the movie Lady and the Tramp at a drive-in. We were close to the screen and the characters were bigger than life to me. The Bella Notte (spaghetti scene) so impressed me. It seems like yesterday I was sitting in the car, looking at the screen, enthralled with the two dogs eating a spaghetti dinner with a Concertina playing.
Those drive-ins, a thing of the past, will always be associated with growing up in the fifties, an American treasure that is just a memory now.
