The Old Oak Tree

This is my latest project done during the few warm days of winter. It is the painting of a farm near Singers Glen, Virginia. During college dating years, we enjoyed some beautiful days there up under the oak tree on the hill. We even took our engagement photo next to that tree! I sent it to my niece, whose grandparents lived there.

So many great memories

A post last week reminded me of days long gone at the local drive-in ice cream shop on Rt. 21 near my home in Pennsylvania. It was a place to take your date for pizza or a twist cone which his were the Twin Kiss got its name. My sister would bring me left over pizza from here when she came back form her dates. It was a time of innocence and coming of age that will always have a sweet place in my mind

Twin Kiss

Sweet twist vanilla and chocolate

Teasing taste buds fries on the plate

Buddy Morgan kept them coming

Burgers pizza and milkshakes running

Mugs of root beer ice on the glass

Drinking it down a very easy task

Chevys Fords and a 58 Mercury

Parked in rows no one in a hurry

Guys with ducktails Girls without worry

Bobby sox and poodle skirts cute as a button

Sitting tight by their guy teasing and cuttin’

Days long gone the Twin Kiss too

I remember those old days

How about you?
