Sunday Drive

One of the things I miss from childhood is the weekly Sunday Drive. My father would take any of the kids who wanted to go for the ride and head out for a couple of hours. Sometimes he knew ahead of time where he wanted to go and other times he would call out, “Pick a road!” or “Pick north or south!” As we rode around he would point out places that he used to go, houses that he built, new buildings or signs. We talked about family, the future, and things to be grateful for. Then the price of gas shot up and made the weekly drive cost prohibitive. Those were good times and I miss them.
