When I was 8 or 9 I would ride my bike down to Ashworth’s and order a hotdog and a fountain cherry coke. It felt so big to come home and tell Mom, "I’ve already had lunch!" and I’d checked out that Old Timer pocket knife at Pete’s Hardware ($13 dollars allowance later it was in my pocket and still is). I should road trip Saturday!

As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, the [Ashworth Drugs] is selling hot dogs for 57 cents and Coke products for 10 cents. [Source]
