      I have some special memories of Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?, the 1968 film that starred Doris Day and Robert Morse. My childhood best friend and I went to see this movie on the same day that we later went to the state fair. We were at the fair at night and riding on one of the rides.

      I believe it was called the Avalanche. It was a ride where you sat in a seat and then went round and round really fast. The ride master would ask, ‘Do you want to go faster?’ and the louder you responded, the faster the ride would go. It was just about my favorite state fair ride ever.

Yet again, most of the time, when I do watch, my mind goes back to childhood and those days with my best friend at the state fair.
