They’re still around, except some of them wear roller blades. I proudly claim this lovely young lady as my daughter. She’s been working at a local drive-in for about 6 months.
She turned 16 in May. I bought her a decent 10 year old Hyundai. She’s been working, paying for her own gas, buying a lot of her own clothes and, as always, a great girl. She’s also an honor student. I wish and pray everyone can have a daughter or son as great as her.
She thinks I’m silly to make such a fuss over her being a roller skating car hop. I explained a little of the history to her and that she’s now a part of Americana. Many little kids, older kids (especially teenage boys), and adults will remember her for a long time. I still remember sitting in a car with my parents, waiting for the girl on roller skates to come gliding up with my hamburger, fries and Coke.
P.S. The picture doesn’t do her justice. I guess the camera does add 10 pounds. Or, it might be the black apron around her waist. She actually verges on skinny with athletic legs.
