Remember when?

13 Jun

Me too, and I miss those days. It was a better time in America then.

 

UPDATE: MCPO Airdale

Music from the era. . .

BTW – We still have a drive-in here.

    Oh, memories!!!

    The old Mission Drive-In theater is being renovated and hopefully open sometime this fall. I can’t wait.

  2. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 6:21 pm #

    I wish someone would open one near me.

  3. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    I can almost smell the concession stand popcorn, “barbeque” and hot dogs.

    Del Shannon – one of my favorites from back when.

    Clint – Chose Del ’cause he’s from Jazz’s Burg.

  7. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 6:30 pm #

    Wow, MCPO. Now that’s a double feature I would love to see. I’ve already seen the Xmen reboot. Cannot wait to see Green Lantern.

  8. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 6:31 pm #

    I thought there was a drive-in near Ennis, Dick. Though that’s a bit of a drive for you.

  9. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 6:31 pm #

    Oh, and PattyAnn loved Del Shannon and drive in movie theaters.

  10. MCPO Airdale June 13, 2011 at 6:39 pm #

    Herself and I plan on going Saturday night!

  11. MCPO Airdale June 13, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    Our drive-in plays G to PG-13 movies only. I love watching the kids play before the feature starts and the little ones with their PJs and blankies.

  12. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    Yhis was our local drive in. About a block from my high school.

    Sad to see that it closed for good.

    When I was a kid, my folks took me across town to this one a few times:

    *Wonders if MCPO and Herself would let me sneak in, in the trunk.*

  14. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 6:46 pm #

    Did you watch it, or just pretend to watch it, Dick? 😉

  15. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

    Last time we went was in 2004, when we were back for a visit.

    We look the boys. As Jake was only a few months old, he has no memory of it. Ethan was six, and he does remember it Shrek, and The Prince and Me.

    I swear I can feel the mosquitos biting right now.

  16. MCPO Airdale June 13, 2011 at 6:50 pm #

    Clint – HAHAHA! Haven’t done that since I had my ’55 Bel Aire!

  17. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 6:50 pm #

    Aggie, we guys would go see the movies on Friday if they were ones we wanted to see, then take the girls back to the same movies on Saturday. We didn’t watch as closely on Saturday as on Friday. Bwahahahahahahaha!

  18. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 6:52 pm #

    We didn’t watch as closely on Saturday as on Friday.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  21. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

    Dick had talent.

  22. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

    Hark. Homemade pizza beckons. Later.

  23. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 7:05 pm #

    That’s impressive, Dick. At least to me 🙂

  24. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 7:15 pm #

    You are the fourth-quarter LeBron James of local sports coverage

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

  25. scott June 13, 2011 at 7:26 pm #

    ““Mrs. Benning’s school for boys” today.”

    That happened to me, but it wasn’t today. You are apparently the only one using that line.

  26. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 8:18 pm #

    My BIL still refers to it by Mrs. Benning’s 🙂

  27. scott June 13, 2011 at 8:22 pm #

    What did she do, Dick?

  30. roamingfirehydrant June 13, 2011 at 9:57 pm #

    No drive-ins here. 😦

  31. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

    I’m with Dick and Clintbird. Went to many movies at the drive in, rarely saw a movie.

    Maybe it was the steam on the windows. Could be it.

  32. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    I dug T-Paw’s answer on the Veep question.

  33. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:06 pm #

    Gah, can CNN declare Romney the winner any more? Guess they have their favorite. I’m watching the later broadcast, or the clips.

  34. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:10 pm #

    I like Cain, but he’s been shooting himself in the foot on Constitional issues. I like your VP idea, which would put him more in an advisory role.

  35. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 10:11 pm #

    I don’t know who won the debate tonight; I expect it was a 4 or 5 way tie. I CAN tell you who absolutely lost tonight though – Mitt Romney. So to all you professional pundits and MSM, let me say, we the voters will decide. Thank you very much.

  36. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:11 pm #

    So, the exact opposite of what CNN is telling me, huh CB? Color me surprised.

  37. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 10:15 pm #

    We’ll watch the rebroadcast here.

    We both heard Santorum on Rush this weekend, and we really liked what we heard.

  38. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    And now CNN highlights Ron Paul. Lovely.

  39. clintbird June 13, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    Santorum, Bachman, Pawlenty, Gingrich all did very well IMO. Paul not so much, Romney not at all. Cain … I’m still trying to get a handle on him. I like him but I just don’t know yet.

  40. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 10:20 pm #

    Cain will be branded as a bigot against muslims. Just wait…

  41. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

    And now CNN highlights Ron Paul. Lovely.

    He’s everything the objective “journalists” there believe Republicans are…angry, adamant, and batshit insane.

    Who did you think they’d interview?

  42. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 10:25 pm #

    That’s were T=Paw lost me.

    Individuals and groups killed americans on 9/11…

    NO. Fucking Islamic Savages killed Americans on 9/11, dummy.

  43. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:26 pm #

    he was on his usual …

    Oh, you said isolationist already. Pretty much that.

  44. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    and he doesn’t know where his fellow candidates are on The Federal Reserve.

  45. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere June 13, 2011 at 10:30 pm #

    Why not? 52% voted for Hoax and Chains.

  46. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:33 pm #

    I don’t think so, Dick. Some will like to pull back, but most of us want the option of “reach out and touch someone” when somebody fucks with us.

    And that includes most Democrats. No one likes when it drags out, though.

  47. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

    At least Robert Gibbs is on to pontificate for Obama. He’s still blaming Bush.

  48. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:37 pm #

    Heh. did you know Obama has cut taxes 17 times?

    Gibbs is so full of shit.

  49. LC Aggie Sith June 13, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    Sure looked like Gergen and Gibbs were trying to figure out who will be the bitch tonight.

  50. Jay in Ames June 13, 2011 at 10:46 pm #

    Is Andy Card on CNN all the time? He’s good people.

    Nice tune, roamy. Like Kelly’s voice, don’t know much Jason Aldean, though. This sounds pretty good.

    I think this is my favorite Jason Aldean song.

    I can’t wait for GMLand to come in here, and tell us about his weekend golf trip with Jason Aldean.

  57. roamingfirehydrant June 14, 2011 at 7:48 am #

    Or that he built a house for Kelly Clarkson. You just know it.

  58. LC Aggie Sith June 14, 2011 at 8:18 am #

    Good morning, and thank you for the first laugh, Roamy and J’Ames 😀

    I’ll tweet it to your girlfriend
    I’ll tweet it to seniors and I’ll tweet it to minors
    And I’ll tweet it to GMLand….

    I got a new pole and flag for today. I hope I attach it to the brick correctly.

    You know, there’s a guy in Texas who knows a little something about brick. I forget his name, though ….

    If you remember, let me know, OK?

    Maybe he can make a housecall 😀

    so easily amused 😀

    But its the executioner doctor *spit* who knows better than the patient, Aggie!

    I had a very similar debate last year about Washington allowing doctors to opt out of abortions on the basis of conscience, but not allowing pharmacists the same right when it comes to dispensing Morning after pills. Oh, how sacrosanct that right of a private patient-pharmacist relationship! And aboslutely no concern for the pharmacist’s rights…
