#2,120 The Old Pontiac.
by Erin Napier
Then we had Sunday dinner out at my parents’ with Mammaw, whom we gave a ride home afterward. And I wonder about her memories in this car. It made me happy to ride in it with her. It canceled out the decades between us, all the history that’s occured since she was my age, riding passenger with her husband at the wheel. Today, time was fluid. We were in James Rasberry’s car with his wife, riding to town. It’s a special feeling that makes old cars and old houses the closest thing we have to a time machine.
