Overview

Moon Pies and an RC form a southern tradition that goes back to the times when families still traveled by car along two lane country roads to reach Grandmother’s house. Children moved freely about in the auto’s interior, seatbelts not yet having been invented. Restless, they could stand and watch over the driver’s shoulder as an eerie world flew by outside – their own imaginations roaring forward on full throttle. Meager heaters did little to warm interiors in the winter, gas stations offered attendants, and convenience stores were unknown. Still, along these curvy country roads, families bonded, forging memories that lasted well past the journeys on which they were bound.

Nostalgia at its best! It took me back to the road trips of my childhood. This is an excellent short story, full of warmth and ambiance, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This could have been a terrific novel. You need to know it's only a short story
