I don't recall Grandma ever going with us on these excursions. I honestly think that PaPa used us as an excuse to run out on a hot summer say and get a Brown Mule. It was his favorite ice cream bar.
I was sorry that I hadn't stopped in the night before. Look at that take-out dinner menu. They had me at "Pork Chops Smothered in Onions and Gravy"! It's hard to see the bottom of the sign, but dinner also included your choice of two veggies, your choice of dessert, a roll and I believe iced tea. Sweet. Total cost for this stick-to-your-ribs meal? 8 bucks. A country bargain.
