Time for the Drive inns.

The old drive inns. Nothing like experiencing the outdoor night sky, with a good film playing way out in front of your car! While enjoying the privacy, of, your car and your friends inside of, your car!

In the Acadian Peninsula, we have probably 4 drive inns left. But, now that the rolls of film will soon be gone, we maybe losing allot of these great relics of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. In the summer months, the drive inns still do very good around in this area. Allot them have canteens, where you can grab a clam cup, a hamburger, and even a poutine!

I will be going to the drive inn, this weekend. What a great place for people to showboat their vehicles, too. How we all wish we could go back in time, to the 60s, to see all of those great muscle cars in Americana. Well, even today, you may even see the rare Chevrolet Bel Air in the drive inn, or the famous Pontiac GTO.

The memories of the drive inn. Soon they will require, 100 thousand dollar digital cameras, to keep going. Some of them, will probably, just shut down or try to continue to operate. Maybe. Sometimes, technology does take away some things that are truly dear to us.. Oh well.. For now, we will enjoy the drive inn... Before it decides which way the future may change it.

Have a good night, Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
