There was a time...

There Was A Time. . .

. . .when Sunday was a day of rest. No stores were open, no housework done. After church, the family piled into the green Chevy and headed for points unknown. We meandered by country farms where animals grazed contentedly. We explored old towns with colonial houses and white steepled churches dating back a hundred years. Each bend contained a surprise - perhaps a pond overgrown with cattails, a country store advertising ice cream or a mysterious, boarded-up house. Too soon, tract houses encroached on the fields, roads widened, cars sped up. Back to civilization . . .until the next Sunday Drive

Hey It's Judy Davis!
Excellent post Mrs. G. I'll look forward to reading more as the days go by. I remember when we would all eat dinner at the table too... that seems to be a thing of the past now 'a' days.

Fortunately things are open on Sundays now. It was soooo boring.

Hey Judy-Thanks for checking in! Speaking of dinners, remember the time at the blue house when we all had dinner together? You guys thought it was So Quaint!!
