We made a two-day trip from our Lone Tree apartment to here. We stopped in Albuquerque at the Days Inn on the east end of town. We walked across the street to the Owl Cafe for dinner. We wondered how many of our children and nieces and nephews, let alone our grandchildren, would even know what this device is. Remember the juke boxes found in many restaurants during our childhood? Today, they can only be found in retro diners. We didn't have the necessary coin to play a song.
There was a drug store with a soda fountain on the route I walked to grand school. They had these on the counter. I only ate there once and don't know if I payed to listen to a song. The store was the place we stopped for a coke or ice cream cone after school.
Arizona had mass vaccination sites early last spring. We received our first and second Pfizer shots in February and March. We got our booster shots shortly before returning here for the winter. It is refreshing--refreshingly normal--to see people's faces and their smiles! Three cheers for the scientists who developed these vaccines.
