have no idea it was that long ago but I do remember that persuading the
girlfriend into the back seat of the FJ Holden was what most males aimed
for. It was a common thought that a
large part of the Australian population were conceived at drive-ins ???
much chance of that happening on our little swaray to the Drive-In a few weeks
ago. The weather was a touch and go
thing as dark clouds were gathering. In
a nutshell, the smart ones bought their cars and the thrill seekers brought
food fest started straight away. Eric
and Deb not only brought their bikes but also had the trailer on the back full
of all sorts of healthy nibbles (such as chocolate and more chocolate). Added to what everyone else brought it was a
pig out (for me anyway). I think the
contribution from Dale and myself consisted of a couple of old soggy Aldi
bikkies, some chocolate coated peanuts from Coles (you know the ones that are

first movie was ok although a bit on the girlie side. Intermission – well it was back into the
health chocolates and then came the second movie. It was a sci-fi type of thing which consisted
of a hero who was decked out in leather(ish) looking armour and a large orange

transponded to a bunch of ugly blokes with leather clothes but with no orange
capes shot them, threw flame balls at them, shot missiles at them that bought
buildings down on top of our heroes but somehow didn’t kill them and so on.
guessed it – I had no idea through the whole movie but I would love to get one of those orange capes.
