I Lived American Graffiti

As I do sometimes, I started reflecting on the past and today it took me back to one of my favorite websites, about Tommy’s Drive-In, during my early years in Odessa, Texas. This was a time like no other. Almost two years ago I was in another nostalgic mood and wrote about those formative years I lived.

If you grew up in the 50’s, you might like to compare your memories with mine. Check out the Tommy’s site. While it won’t mean as much to you, as it does to me, it still might be an enjoyable diversion. The site plays a lot of Roy Orbison’s songs.

Many people have seen the movie American Graffiti, but I was one of the fortunate ones that got to live it.

  1. I enjoyed reading a bit of your story about days gone by in your previous blog entry. Everyone has a story to tell; some history that is meaningful to them along with a shoebox of pictures (or something like it). Thanks for sharing a bit of your story – a biography of the heart.

  2. Don, you may enjoy a book a big group of us “50s” era folks read recently….Bill Bryson’s “The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid”..belly laughing funny. Those were indeed the ‘good old days”..Mel’s Diner for me in Central California.

  3. I was just going to recommend the same book, which I finished reading last night. Very funny and very nostalgic. I’m reading Doc Walton’s copy, and I’m sure he’ll lend it to you.
