Oh my! My cousin just sent me a forward about Woolworths!
Isn't it fun just to receive an e-mail that doesn't make you crazy but just brings back good memories?
Well, I'm definitely one of those! I immediately wrote him and told him (his momma and my Grandma Vivien were sisters) that I have such fond and happy memories of going with Grandma to Woolworths as a little girl. Gma had red hair and so do I and I'm sure I looked like her little Mini-Me marching in right behind her.
This is a store that looked very similar to the one we went to.
She would put me at the counter
and order me a milkshake and then proceed to get her "goodies". Imagine back then being able to leave and shop a few feet away and not have your child abducted. Oh the joy I felt watching them make that milkshake. The stainless steel cup, the machine that mixed it, and then it was poured in a tall chilled glass cup with a tall spoon and a straw.
Before I knew it Gma would be back to collect me and we would go check out and off we would go. I couldn't wait to visit her again so we could have our special time at Woolworths!
AHHHHHHH sweet memories....
