FROSTED MUGS FILLED WITH ROOT BEER - YUM!
My spouse and I don't yet know if we're any closer to moving to another house, but we've decided to continue painting and updating this one until that time comes. We intend to downsize, so we're letting go of things we've used and stored, but may never use again. Tonight we took some glasses and mugs from cupboard shelves and decided which to keep and which to donate. When I saw our A&W Root Beer mugs I was reminded of the sweet memories we made when we visited the old root beer stand. On one visit, our daughter was given a tiny A&W mug and told she would receive free root beer in it every time she brought it back to the stand. You know we had to take that mug with us every time. Daughter mentioned it not to long ago so I think she'd like to have it. We all loved sipping root beer from frosted mugs and eventually Spouse and I bought the two large ones for ourselves. Those seemed to be such simple times - back when we ate hot dogs with wild abandon and didn't even wonder about how much sodium was in them or what meats were used to make them. A&W Root Beer stands were famous for their footlongs, though I don't remember when I last had one. The A&W drive-in we used to frequent is still in operation, but we haven't been there in ages. We'll have to be content to conjure up those wonderful memories now and then....but those mugs are definitely keepers.
