Remember This?

I won’t give it away, but when I saw this picture, it took me back to the days of innocence, wonder and … aw, who am I kidding. A time of exploration, debauchery and lost nights.

What does this picture say to you?

Update: From the comments, it was suggested I do a google search for drive-in movies near me. Here’s what I found:

Sun Ray’s Drive-in is a small, single screen drive-in movie theater located in Jacksonville, Florida. The owners of the drive-in are Tim Massett and Shana David-Massett and they had operated an independent, indoor movie theater in Jacksonville called Sun Ray’s cinema since 2013. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the Massetts decided to open a pop-up, temporary drive-in. However, the drive-in did so well, the Massetts decided to make the drive-in a permanent feature. They purchased some land for the drive-in and invested in a permanent screen and new digital projector. They started showing movies at the drive-in’s current location during the second weekend of January. The drive-in is an intimate experience and will hold about 65 cars. The drive-in has a food truck owned by the cinema as well as allows other food vendors at times. The Sun Ray’s Drive-in brings a permanent drive-in theater back to Jacksonville as before its opening, the last drive-in theater in Jacksonville closed back in 2008. Movie audio for the drive-in is transmitted on 94.1FM. Sun Ray’s Drive-in has digital projection and shows both first run and classic movies. Admission is currently $20 per carload.

I may have to see about going.

Picture Prompt – Um Maybe?

While doing deliveries today to various plumbing outfits, I was in need of relieving myself. I asked if I could use their restroom. They smiled really big and said, “Sure!”

The picture above is what greeted me when I entered the restroom.

What the hell can I say about this? I have no idea.

If anybody wants to take a crack at doing a 100 word flash challenge based on the picture, email it to me at Matt.DunlapATprotonmail.com. I’ll make a separate post and promise to relentlessly promote your blog.

I’m still laughing at this.

Picture Prompt – 100 word challenge

The tall stately tree had lorded over the lesser trees for decades. It had seen upstarts to its grandeur come and go. Soaring over fifty feet into the air, the grand tree reached ever higher. Alas, it did not notice the ivy that was slowly strangling its roots. The ivy wrapped around the sturdy trunk, inch by inch, steadily for the last few years. Perhaps the mighty tree did not notice the light as a feather ivy, but lately it had felt weighted down. No more soaring into the heavens, now it was a struggle just to survive the onslaught.

Post your 100 word story in the comments. I would dearly love to see how others see this photo that I took today.
