The Drive Through 10 Year Old Eyes

I came across this neat review of the Drive on a website called www.findfamilyfun.com. It was written by a girl named Jeneavieve, who was 10 years old at the time. Pretty cool. Used with permission.

Activity: I’m going to tell you a story, which you might find funny. Last week Mom and Dad had an urge to visit Commercial Drive. In their day it was known as the Italian district of Vancouver, and they wanted to see what it was like now. Apparently Dad used to take Mom out to an Italian Restaurant called “Il Corsaro”, and the owner always gave each lady a red rose. Mom brought that up because Dad hasn’t given her long-stem roses since they first dated over 20 years ago.

Anyway, we got there around 1:30 in the afternoon, thinking we’d have lunch. It looked like the perfect place. I’ve never seen so many food places. There must’ve been two dozen coffee houses alone. Mom was set. Dad however had a craving for a Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut. We found out, after the umpteenth deli, that Italians don’t eat Reuben sandwiches with sauerkraut. It was only after Dad settled for a Donair that we stumbled across “La Grotta,” a deli selling custom-made sandwiches! In the meantime Coleman and I discovered ice-cream heaven at “Dolce D’Amore.” Talk about yummy or what. Too bad I couldn’t talk Mom into more than one scoop.

Anyway, at least we got lunch out of the way, and could turn our attention to more serious business—shopping. The only problem is once you weed out the restaurants, delis, coffee shops, pastry shops, and produce markets there isn’t much left. We did find one whole toy store, but it didn’t last long. Then there was an expensive shoe store called “Kaleena’s,” but Mom said, “window shopping only.” What fun is that? “Dad took me into a shop called “Spank”, which believe it or not is a ladies clothing store. He said it was called “Spank” because all parents were allowed to spank their kids there. Yah right Dad.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
