...Cooked down at the corner drug store where you can always get a thick Chocolate Malt and some crisp, fresh cut french fies along with the latest town news.
Our corner Drug store has went by the way side, now there is a little second street coffee shop.
She serves fat juicy hamburgers, fries and all the old men sit around all morning and drink coffee and tell tales, also the best place to hear the latest news around town.
Back when we had a corner drug store, my parents had a small shop up the street from them. When I was 4-5 yrs old, my mom would pin their order and some money to my shirt and tell me to run to the girls at the counter.
They would take the order, give me a vanilla coke, fix my order, put it in a bag, hand me the change, and tell me to run back to my mom.
That was 33 years ago, to this day there is a lady in town, when she sees me she squeezes my cheek and says
"You were the little boy that would run into the drugstore with a note pinned to your shirt"
Life in a small town.
