I dated this yesterday, because that is when the events happened.
For lunch, John and I drove to Sharpsburg, Md to an art gallery. Every years they sponsor a classic car show bring back a special time for us to remember. In the fifties and sixties the most popular place to eat in the DC, MD and northern VA, was at the Hot Shoppe's Restaurants. The thing to order was a "Mighty Mo" and onion rings. The restaurant are closed now, but someone saved the recipe for the famous burger and this is a great time to go back in time. I had not had a "Mighty Mo" in 45 years. It is still the best.
The art gallery sells great photos of the Hot Shoppe Restaurants and also Civil War paintings.
After lunch, we stopped in Sharpsburg, (an old Civil War town) at Nutters and had homemade ice cream, so good.
Back home, we both took a much needed nap. So we would be rested for the rest of the day. We took Princesses to the Valle Mall for the classic car cruise-in. It was a beautiful evening and over 400 cars showed up. It is fun the talk to everyone as they pass by with stories about the time they let a $1,000.00 Thunderbird get away. It is nice to have something to share with people. People truly enjoy seeing the cars they remember. It was such a beautiful night that at 9 o'clock when the car show broke up, most of the cars were not ready to call it a night and they just crused around Hagerstown. I am glad I had a jacket. It was a very nice evening.
When we got home we had even better news, our grandsons had left us a message that they want to come to see us Sunday.
There parents have a meeting after church so the boys knew they could be rescued by us. They live 45 minutes away and it is the first time Chris has driven his little brother this far. But the little guy is so excited. he adores his big brother.
So lunch today will be Tops or Ci Ci's. I don't have to tell you all when one I like. I'll let you know if I won. More later,
