Re: “Miss McKellar Lake — 1973

I believe the person tagged as Pam Parrish is actually Pam Farrish. Love her. She was my "little sister" in my high school sorority.

Re: “Remember the Merrymobiles

Oh joyous rapture! The sight of the Merrymobile that awaited us at the top of the hill after school. My request was always the same: sky blue popsicle. A few years back, when my daughter was a teen and still into Old Navy, we walked into the store and she was a little embarrassed when a little girl squeal came out of her mother's mouth saying, "Oooh, it's the MERRYMOBILE!" They were using what appeared to be a renovated Merrymobile from ages of old as a display that had myriads of their colorful t-shirts folded and laid out around the circular shelf where the magical icy delights used to be hidden below. As I shared the history of the Merrymobile with my daughter, we were brought a little closer together that day, as she was reminded I was once a child too.

Re: “The Dobbs House Luau

RE: "... the Polynesian-themed restaurant craze that inexplicably swept across this country in the 1960s. I have no idea what prompted it. Every city had such a place, it seems, featuring exotic interiors with waterfalls and coconuts and lots of bamboo, thatched roofs and palm trees"

I believe the craze began around 1959 when Hawaii became a state ... just a guess, mind you.

Re: “The Dobbs House Luau

For many years my parents would say when I begged them to take me to this exotic looking place, "You're not old enough, it's a grown-up restaurant." Translation: we're not spending that kind of money for you to order a hamburger.

When I was finally deemed a respectful age, the reality to my fantasy did not disappoint. I was mesmerized immediately upon stepping through the door and was transported from a sleepy Southern town to the South Pacific. It remained a special place for me to dine with my parents until I moved away, forgot about my little paradise, and then on a visit home, sadly learned of the closing. Thank you for taking me back to that wonderful memory. Love, love, love your blog!
