It was a warm Saturday night in August at the intersection of Highway 283 and 183. We stood right at the intersection that was lined with people in every direction for several blocks. It was Summer's Last Blast in Vernon, Texas.
We were transported back to days gone by from our childhood. . .
Do they remind you of family vacations or holidays together?
I was wishing my mom and dad were there to relive the memories. They would have enjoyed it so very much. Maybe next year they can come.
My dad was a mechanic before he retired and I grew up hearing about the many cool cars he owned once.
I remember riding in some of them as a child.
There were many cars that reminded me of my teenage years. Cars that we drug Main Street in or sometimes we would park in a circle and sit on the hoods and talk. Back in those days the cars were metal and so you could sit on the hood without damage to your car.
Those really were fun days . . .
They are fun to remember because of all the fun times and the fun friends.
The cool part of this night was that I was with my dear hubby and 3 of my children making new memories.
I have learned that it is not good to be so caught up in the past that you forget to live and enjoy the present.
We stood there together oohing and aahing over each vehicle as it passed.
We were amazed by their paint jobs and the creativity expressed on some of the cars.
We enjoyed the smiles of the owners who cruised them past
We wondered where in the world the owners had found that car or this one.
If you like old cars or would just like to create some fun memories of your own you might join us at the intersection of Highway 183 and 283 in Vernon, Texas for Summer's Last Blast on August 11th - 15th.
