Coney Island

The Coney Island I’m talking about, used to be down on west Church street in Orlando, FL . It was west of the rail road tracks and on the south side of the road. The name of the restaurant may be wrong, but it sounds good. So on with the story.Coney Island Hot Dogs On Saturdays the family would go to town and go to Coney Island it was a little restaurant that served some of the best tasting hot dogs you ever— tasted, we would order up a hot dog some chips, and a drink when the waitress sat those delicious hot dogs down in front of you with mustard, ketchup, and onions on it. You can’t wait to get your hands around the bun, and start eating! Then when some one at the table keeps telling you to wipe the mustard and ketchup off your chin you know those hot dogs are lip licking good! When we were through with supper we are ready to go to the Rialto Theater to see a good movie we would jump in the car and Dad would drop us off at the theater. After getting our candy bar and something to drink we would fine one of our favorite seats. Just before the movie started they would show a cartoon featuring the friendly ghost, goofy, Casper the friendly ghost my brother’s favorite was Mr. Magoo. The one I liked best was Popeye the sailor man toot toot. When the cartoon came on my Brother would poke me with his elbow and say [this is what I came to see] I would laugh. Some time the movie would be Hopalong Cassidy, and of course Gabby Hayes. Super man, or Roy Rogers they were all good movies. Oops! I almost for got about Tarzan and Jane. You knew when the movie was over. I was happy that we could go to town on Saturdays and have so much fun.

Did you know that Grand parents will take a minute to talk to there grand kids?
