A ghostly apparition appears in the parking lot at Dick’s Drive In in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Legendary around Seattle, Dick’s Drive In is the quintessential classic hamburger joint. Late nights, people flock to all of the six locations of Dick’s around the Seattle area. Their motto: ‘Where taste has been the difference since 1954!’ Opening their first drive-in near the University of Washington in 1954, their menu was and is simple. Four burgers, ‘Deluxe, Special, Cheese and Regular,’ fries, shakes, floats, cones and soda pop, that’s it. Today the most expensive burger is $2.70 and a fry is $1.50. In the 1960s when my husband was in high school, he bought cheese burgers for 19¢, and a fries for 11¢, sounds amazing doesn’t it? Here I’ve caught a car pulling out of Dick’s long before the long lines form later in the evening when hunger overcomes those out for an evening of activities of various sorts, its movement creating a ghostly shadow.
Sharing with my friend Nancy over at ‘A Rural Journal,’ and her weekly meme featured on Sundays, ‘Your Sunday Best #20.’ And sharing with a new meme starting today over at ‘Chickens on the Moon,’ called ‘Sunday Photo #1.’
Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
