Just like the one my wise old grandmother had
Each Thursday during the summer, La Mesa Village has a car show from
5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
It makes for a great summer evening — eating in the Village, watching historic cars drive by, and, if you like, even negotiating to buy one of them.
That’s where I went this evening. One of the cars was a 1960 Chevrolet Impala, just like the one my wise old grandmother drove until 1973.
I went off to college at Texas A&M University in September 1973. For Christmas that year, my granddad bought my wise old grandmother a new car, a 1973 Chevrolet Caprice.
By the way, for those who have been following me and are interested, my other half, Jim, is in the second and third pictures, upper right corner of the second picture and left of the car in the third picture. I always have to tell him to get out of my pictures because he loves to wander around without paying attention to where the, uh, photographer — that’s me! — is.
