The Way We Were… Blogophilia

Tyler looked behind himself, at least three watchers. He started to work the lock. After all these years he had never entered a movie showing without paying, but this was an emergency.

A fire alarm on the door… if he could just disable the sensor. There! He was in the hallway. Now to reactivate the door for safety purposes. And if he could just leave a payment for the movie fast while he rushed out the front. Or… would the watchers expect that and have the front door covered already? Maybe he should stay in here for a few hours, he’d be off the streets and safe.

Oh no, Ron Howard’s Grand Theft Auto? He’d last seen that a drive-in with Sallon in Centerville, his Vega cutting in line through the exit. Everyone in Centerville knew the car and didn’t mess with him. That was the way we were he mused.

Actually he never paid for movies then, Sallon would always walk over the the entrance and pay. And grab popcorn and candy. Root beer and they’d sneak in a pint of ice cream in a cooler. Mmmm he could still taste the bite of the root beer and the creamy vanilla ice cream.

Popcorn… he could smell it up front. It would be better to stay hunched down here in the theater seating. But he was hungry…

*   *  *

“Hey look, Grand Theft Auto. Should we go in?” Sallon smiled and slipped off her Allis Chalmers cap.

Advice is what we ask for when we want to seem like there’s a choice,” Myke laughed and adjusted his shades. “Yeah, I can’t resist a Ron Howard movie. That’s his best, too.” They paid for two tickets at the window and stepped into the lobby.


“Sallon and Myke? Hey, what are you guys in town for?” Tyler grinned holding onto a tub of popcorn at the candy counter. “This is insane.”

FREEZE! POLICE! HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!” The three detectives spread out to cut off escape.

“What? What is this about?” Tyler called back. “Relax, this must be a misunderstanding.”

“That green Miata didn’t get abandoned in the alley out back on its own. Book ’em, Captain Bacon. Grand theft auto. Get Mankato CSI over here and process the car.”

    I was happy to see a continuation of your story line. But you made me hungry for a rootbeer float and popcorn now….

    How’d you get the cool blog background? This place is a bit difficult figuring out…. *sigh*

    I do love vanilla ice cream, but I am beginning to think Green Miata are a bit to flashy for my behind the spotlight lifestyle. Good to know I haven’t forgotten to pick a lock

    He was just parking that Miata out there because it was the only place he didn’t have to parallel park. Poor Tyler.

    <Ruggi saw a woman in London with a red beret and red gloves. He is furious.
    Tyler posted on FB, I don’t know if he posted anywhere else. Right now everybody is a bit jumbled around and there is no single place for links… It will be a period of adjustment. *munching on a Ostrich egg french toast*
    We were talking about red berets at dinner tonight – group of us – luckily no one inquired who my friend is with a red beret you would need a whole loaf of break for Ostrich egg french toast – what kind of bread would be best, do you think ?
