Love at the Five and Dime

"We don't remember days, we remember moments."
~  Cesare Pavese  ~

Looking forward to a nice long weekend and I will be kicking it off by seeing one of my 
favorite musicians in Annapolis.  

Nanci Griffith

One of my her songs, "Love at the Five and Dime", takes me down memory lane and the Woolworth store in Muscatine, Iowa, a small river town 
that sits on the Mississippi.

My grandmother and I would frequent it during the hot summer months.

I have great memories of sitting at the counter at that five and dime store
and ordering ice cream sundaes! 
A rare treat for a farming family of modest means.

It's a beautiful song as well as delightful!
Hope you enjoy.

By the way,
what are you doing this weekend?  

Do share!
