"MEMORIES" boy you had a childhood
any kid would want FREE ICE CREAM.
You had a wonderful child hood.
We had a very small neighbood store we would go to buy candy and
cookies. When they sold out to
MacDonald's I bought the counter
(glass show case) that I use to
buy the candy over. I have all my
childhood toys plus the toys I
collect in it. I also bought the
large cookie jar and the pickle
jar from her. It was sad to see
them go because I had known them
all my life. But every time I look
at my showcase I think how many times I have bought candy over that counter. Ahh MEMORIES!!:o)

What a delicious reminiscence! It's a real gift to be able to enjoy meeting and talking with people. A local cafe or diner seems the perfect place to do so. Thanks for sharing the cheerful memories.


Oooohh how fun to have this as your childhood, it sounds wonderful.


An interesting post. I could imagine in all just as you described it.

I'd have had a grilled cheese. Restaurants that look like that always make good grilled cheese.

Btw, I received the picture I purchased from you. Thank you for the careful packing, it arrived safe and sound and is just lovely.

I would have thought that heaven as a child! To order what I wanted and pick out snacks I desired. Yes, it has served you well. You have such rapport with people, which is easily seen through your blog.

Susan, Sweet memories...and yes having grown up with my dad and grandfather both owning bakeries, I can understand. Every now and then I wish I could go back to that place just for a visit...happily we do have our memories. As a teenager, did you ever work in the diner?
♥, Susan


Yes...I did work there from time to time!


Your parent's restaurant looks and sounds perfect! I just love your description. Whatever happened to it?

Believe it or not, my parent's owned a candy store while I was growing up. I know, every kid's dream! Yes, I did get a lot of candy :) It was a little shop & they knew everyone downtown. I have fond memories of the store :)


Kim-- How cool that your parents owned a candy store!
My folks sold their restaurant over 20 years ago to a couple of brothers who turned it into a Greek restaurant that is still in business.


From Express Grill to T-Party seems, at first, to be a big jump. But when you describe what you learned from your parents, it was the most natural thing in the world. What great memories. Thanks.


I think you should send this story to Hollywood. It would make a cute sit com -- a little girl who pretty much had the world on a string. A cross of Cheers/Leave it to Beaver/Mayberry. Could be fun.

What a lovely story, thank you for sharing it with us, your adoring public.
