Drive In Movies








The evening was warm as the breeze blew from the south. The sky, covered in a light orange sunset, gave a tranquil mood. I drove close to the speaker rolling the window down. Reaching out, I placed it on the window 's edge. The smell of popcorn, strong in the air, the movie began to play.

Flash Fiction Friday 55 is a story written in exactly 55 words.  It's fun exciting and definitely a challenge making sure to use no more than fifty five words and no less of course and you must read the ones of your fellow writers. Let the G-Man know if you write one   Gman's Place Why Gman's? Place Cause He's da Man!..

James 2 : 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also

What a great memory provoking 55! Not many of them around any more. It's too bad...it was always such a fun place to be naughty!

Well done!
Creates a great mental image, full of memories.

Ah, I remember Drive In movies. Was probably the only teenage girl who ever actually watched the movie. ;) [And yet the "boy" married me anyway].

Have a great week!
