Remember the great drive-in theaters

It has always been a car-loving citizenry in our country, and nothing could compare to the introduction and mainstay of the all-American drive-in movie theater. It seems to have all began in the late 1930s, and by the late 1950s it really peaked. It was so convenient for families to pile ...

Family greets baby Ryan

We have entered the month of August and the sun is shining this morning as I sit writing at the desk. I am by the east window, but the wraparound porch keeps the sun from shining in the windows. It makes nice sleeping with the cool evenings. First of all, I want to share our wonderful news of ...
