    The cicada mention reminds me of something I read a few months ago that one day your parents put you down and never picked you up again.

    A&W’s teen burger had bacon, that’s what made it so fabulous.  Cold frosty glass of root beer and a burger with bacon.  Heaven.

    Yes, and now only the Papa Burger still has such a name.

    For a while, when I lived in Phoenix, there was a Diamond Shamrock gas/convenience store at the corner, that had a small A&W inside.  That was wonderful!  After a while, for some reason that came out and was replaced by a couple stands with plastic-wrapped trays of tortilla chips and dispensers of hot cheese sauce and chili sauce.  So disappointing.

    When I was on the way out of Arizona in 2020, I passed by what I guess was the last A&W remaining in the state, just outside Tucson.  But I didn’t really want to stop, both for time and because I was driving a large U-Haul truck.
