Friday Flashback: Odie’s Drive Inn


If you’ve never been to a real life drive-in, you’re missing out. Red plastic baskets, lined with greasy wax paper…spilling over with double stack hamburgers, made to order and all the onion rings you can eat. Corn dogs with mustard. Patty melts. Thick milkshakes and malts. Root beer floats. Tator tots and a squeeze bottle of ketchup.

There’s nothing like summer and there’s nothing like dinner at the drive-in, or in this case “drive inn.” This sweet season of freedom is slipping through our fingers…pushing us towards crunching leaves, cozy sweaters, shorter days and more responsibility.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready for summer to be over. Mine actually feels like it was just getting started. I hope you enjoy this next month and I hope you make time for a few more summer adventures. Happy Friday my friend!
