Malt shops and

more.

Hello mom,

My friends and I went to the

malt shop today.

It’s so much fun visiting Wanda and aunt Alice. They have 3 television channels and uncle Joe said they are getting a color television. Mom put a bug into dad’s ear to get a new television. They even have one of the new car hops. The girls bring your food on a tray on roller skates. Mom. I would love to be a car hop in our town. I love to roller skate. It would be my first job. Think of the money I could make. And the boys I could meet. I could even save my money and get one of the new Edsels. The front of the car looks so boss. don’t you think? I am sure that you and dad could help me a little with the money right? Tonight we are going Ice skating. Can you believe it this town is so big they have a Ice skating rink. Wanda said there are always boys there. That’s OK right because aunt Alice with be with us. Got to go, mom. I have to get this letter out. Remember, bug dad about the color television and the car.                                      Love Joyce

Bob’s big boy

In California we would always go to Bob’s Big Boy. My brother drove off with the tray because the girl would not come and get it. So she saw him drive away and she got the license number of the car and called the police. Funny. If you don’t have a Bob’s or Bob’s Big Boy or Vip’s they had a lot of names but  the Big Boy was always out front. Best chili size ever made was at the Big Boy. Great malts, too.
My sister and her husband bought a Winchell’s donut shop in northern California. We lived in Glendale, CA. at the time and I went up to help them for the summer. I was about 13 or 14 and we made donuts starting about 12:30 at night. Then went boating, water skiing and fishing in the day. Get up and do it all over again. Remember the Dunkin Donuts commercial “time to make the donuts” ?  Michael Vale (June 28, 1922 – December 24, 2005)
