Okay, today's obsession begins with a simple ham salad sandwich from Jamie's Soda Fountain in downtown Kokomo... and in true Tom Hamilton style, I am whisked back to a time when things were a little more simple, a little easier, and a little more care free. The simple ham salad sandwich, after one bite, reminded me of a time when my grandparents would take me to the drug store next to the family hardware store. As a reward for a hard day of matching bolts with nuts, and sweeping the floor, and in general... just being a distraction, I was rewarded with a chocolate flip and a grilled ham salad sandwich from the drug store right next door. I would walk in, sit up on the bar stool or in a booth like I owned the city of Kokomo! It truly was a special time I will always remember, AND Ryan and Erin at Jamie's yesterday brought all of those memories flooding back with a simple bite into the sandwich that I ordered yesterday. In general, I am pretty sentimental, but this simple little sandwich... again... in true Tom Hamilton Style, transported me back to a time that brought back so many great memories of summer's gone by and "working" at Handy Hardware.
