Way back when, my grandpa was one of the few people that had a car in this small town. He bought an old blue jalopy for $100 from a military serviceman being sent overseas. The old car had a few dents and dings but most of the time, he says, it ran good.
My grandpa drove to Red Crow Drive-In in his old blue jalopy and was instantly smitten with a beautiful young car hop with flaming red hair and dimples. He testifies to love at first sight. They dated for six months and then eloped. This woman happens to be my wonderful grandmother who had six children and eighteen grandchildren.
And to think, I am here, on this earth, because of an old blue jalopy.
