I drove through…

I remember this place I drove through numerous times, but never stopped, thinking it would be there waiting for me – forever 1957. Always had a fresh coating of snow nestled halfway to heaven. Candy apples were three for a quarter at the Towne Hardware according to the sign in the window. I bet widowers gathered there drinking the free coffee beside the Dutch Boy paint cans. One time, there was a banner across Main Street that read, “Welcome Hollywood.” Candy apples – forty cents each that day.
