Saturday night March 2nd, 2019, was a glorious evening for a top down drive to Dandenong, destination the Lunar Drive In. Well actually, of the three couples who came, no one chose the top down alternative because Allen & Jill Whatmore and Doug. Williams and Ina Koetsier came in their OVs and Paul and Marie Eaves came in their Moke, but it has a permanent hardtop.
Everyone turned up around 19:30 as advertised and the three vehicles went in, leaving Doug, standing outside for the next 15 minutes with a clip board and an attendance sheet just in case someone had their watch on Eastern Moke Time. At 19:45 Doug walked up to the ticket box to pay and was told that a nice lady had already paid for him and he could just walk in. He met up with the others at the burger joint and there was a bit of nattering and munching before darkness crept up and we all slipped away to the movie we had chosen - there were four screens to choose from.
Top marks to Paul and Marie who did it in true Mokin' style:
Double top marks because they stayed for the late show as well and got home very early the next day - costing Paul two days in his log book for one night out. Hmmm ... hope the films were worth it.
