From you lips to God's ears, @WebmasterMaryJo ! If either of us happen to be near the other (I would LOOOOOOOVE to be in CA again!!!) - you got a date!!Same boat, and it's quite nice. But someday I may be in your neck of the woods, or hopefully you'll be in mine, and we can go together. That would be fun.
This one is an hour away in Shelby, NC - there is another one about an hour and a half away in Kings Mountain, though we haven't been to the 2nd one.I wish we still had drive-ins. The last time we went was when Jurassic Park came out. My daughter was around 4 at the time and ended up on the floor of the car. Lol There is too much light pollution for one here. I'll probably go see the Incredibles 2. It's a fun flick.
Stop making me want a side trip when we finally go to TN to visit some of my family. If we do go to TN, my cousins want to do Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Dollywood if we plan just right. I have not decided if our girl would go if do this this summer even though she could stay with my cousins.This one is an hour away in Shelby, NC - there is another one about an hour and a half away in Kings Mountain, though we haven't been to the 2nd one.
It's a lot of fun - $12 a carload to get in for two movies and they allow outside food / drinks. They are always doing fun stuff before the movies too. They had a Star Wars costume contest before Solo and since my daughter and I have Star Wars costumes, we dressed up. She was the only kid and we both got prizes.
This weekend they are having a coloring contest for the kids and having clowns make balloon animals for all the kids too! It should be a lot of fun. The drive back in the middle of the night isn't fun but it's not too far. And it's a great summertime activity.
In a previous military-centered life, I visited Southern CA many times (Coronado/S.D.). Ironically, or maybe appropriately, once checked-in to my hotel and armed with a rental car, I drove north to DL for a day's trip before "business". Of all the places I could have visited (i.e. Sunset Cliffs, Point Loma), I chose Disney first.

I was able to buy it at a local Mexican restaurant near me that also has a small area of Mexican grocery items. Really good on corn salad like they have in DCA Cars Land.Not sure where to put this, so I figured this "catch all" category would be okay. Since we were talking about sour/tangy stuff in another topic, it made me think of something - is tajin the name of the stuff people sprinkle on the Dole Whips in DL? Couldn't find it at my local grocery store, but I ordered a bottle on Amazon. Even if I haven't got any "Dole Whip trips" planned, I'd probably like it on fruits and veggies, and now is the perfect time to try that, seeing as how summer is starting now!
I mix it (tajin) with mayo & lemon or lime juice and combine with corn for a cold corn salad. Tastes like the corn salad my friend got in DCA.Trying Tajin on a mixed salad I made for dinner, with a mayo/ketchup dressing I made. Liking it! I think it's nicely paired/cuts the "richness" of the mayo? Maybe it'll turn out I like it better with savory stuff? Love experimenting - especially with food - eating is SUCH a hobby for me!
Didn't realize they were that far north. These nasty critters are basically in every Florida lawn. It only took one time to get bit by them, before I started to treat my lawn (which helped but didn't get rid of all of them). I thought I read they aren't indigenous to the U.S. and came over via shipping crates; regardless, I think they should all be eradicated.got bit by fire ants and my ankles were hurting.
