Observation for Now

It has always seemed to me that the human race needs more things to wonder about, rather than less.

A Drive-In Artifact

While going through some books to get rid of some, I came across this slip of paper, a relic of the past.  In "the good old days," there were these outdoor movies, see, and they were called "Drive-ins."

There used to be several her in OLC when we got married in the late1970s.  Here in OKC there was one on S Portland Ave close to the airport -- I remember going there once.  Now its site is occupied by a field with a couple of oil pumping stations.

There was another at S 59th St and Santa Fe Ave.  We went to see Star Trek II there when Matthew was a baby ( circa 1982-3).

The Winchester Drive-In in OKC on S Western is still in business!  Every winter when they shut down they put on their marquee:
     WHEN SPRING HAS COME
     AND FLOWERS HAVE RIZ
     THIS IS WHERE
     THE MOVIES IS
and being a fan of cheesy humor, I like that.










Anyway, here is the ticket thing:

This is on regular-weight paper, probably cut with a paper-cutter.  It was run off on a mimeograph machine (another relic of bygone days).

See you next week!
