Vivian's was always there at the end of my paper route down Forest Avenue. Through sun, rain, sleet, and snow, one thing was constant, that gal flipping burgers at her grill. It was my last stop and after dropping her Evening Express on the counter, I often 'celebrated' with a Coke. Usually along with the refreshing drink, I sat at the windows and either counted my change, double checked for extras or briefly perused the Sports section. Fridays were special. Vivian always had a special treat for me: a delicious burger topped with cheese, grilled onions and my blend of ketchup and mustard. Vivian's Drive-In was there when I ended my 'work', and was STILL there, serving customers this week. Now, that's a stretch of burgers and red dogs!
