Your car trips were quite the adventure. Good thing Mom was the poster-woman for preparedness.
And this was in the years before wipes!
Not long at all lol.
Hee hee - I was thinking the same as the young Diane - imagining being in the car behind, watching the door open and close, open and close, and ... fluids ... being poured out each time!
Ewww . . .
And just as I hit "publish" I recalled this story my parents used to tell me, about the long trip we took when I was a baby, still in diapers - cloth diapers, of course. When they left the motel each night, the previous day's diapers would still be damp from washing, so they rolled up the window with the edge of the diaper caught in it, and the diapers flapped in the breeze of the moving car until dry!
Heehee! I'd like to have been following that car!!!
Gives moving house a whole new meaning!I remember drying nappies (diapers) like that on long trips interstate to visit the grandparents.
Why didn't I ever see fun cars like those?!
OMG I remember the long car trips---never fun for me because I got car sick often! Great post, Diane!
You and Me, Marcia! You and me.
They should have drafted your mom into the army she was prepared for EVERYTHING! My spot in the car was laying in the back window next to the speakers! SUch great safety standards back then!
I LOVED that spot!
Thank you for visiting! Drop by again!
