Drive-In Movie Theaters: This article evoked vivid, early teen memories. Sultry Friday and Saturday summer nights in August. Shad flies filling the night time sky over the Kootenay River. We would race our bikes to beat the twilight turning to dusk. We’d hide our bikes in the bushes and go searching for a grassy spot on the hill at the Sunset Drive-in. The tantalizing smell of popcorn and hot dogs. The car window speakers cackling. The older high school kids cozying up to their girls.
Family night at the Drive-In
Used to go to the drive in Theater alot when a child I did not know that some still existed
The Drive In movie theater - sleeping bags, pj's and popcorn watching 101 Dalmatians from the back of the family station wagon - those were the days

Metal sliding board. Wow, did these ever get HOT on a sunny summer day! I remember rubbing ours down with waxed paper to make it easier to slide on.
Hot sun on metal slides, and we carried a piece of wax paper to the park to sit on and slide down, making it even faster. How come no one worried about liability and lawsuits?
Childhood memories: Hot sun on metal slides
Hot sun on metal slides with wax paper! We were daredevils!….Totally did this when we were little on the old North Grove School House Slide that my parents have!
Hot sun on metal slides, but still fun! We used to rub them with wax paper to make them go faster! We also perfected sliding on our shoes on a hot day to save our rears as pants were not allowed for girls.
Leg burners found on every school playground - Hot sun on metal slides.
