Rainy Days

When I was growing up, they showed cartoons at the junior high auditorium on rainy days during vacation times. (And, before someone asks, I have no idea who "they" were.) The offerings were pretty much Loony Tunes - Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, etc. The attraction was not so much the cartoons, as the colored lights on the stage curtains between them, which we all oohed and ached over.

But an even bigger attraction was how we got there. Normally, we walked to school. (Lincoln Orens Junior High was basically a wing of Auduon Blvd. Elementary School.) But it was raining, so parents would drive us. And the best of those was when Doreen's father drove. He ran a laundry and we rode in the back of the laundry van, sitting on top of the bags of laundry. So much more fun than sitting in an actual car seat!
