Mom would pack bologna that had been sliced by the butcher, a loaf of bread, sliced onions, sliced toma­toes, potato chips and Pepsi. She’d make sand­wiches on her lap while Dad was driv­ing. Such sweet mem­o­ries of a life much sim­pler.

My mom made her own minced ham sand­wiches with bologna, sweet gherkin pick­les and Mir­a­cle Whip the night be­fore, wrapped them in plas­tic and kept them on ice. —Donna Ri­ley Gar­rett,

On the 12-hour drive to my dad’s fa­vorite fish­ing spot in Canada, my par­ents would play a cas­sette of “On the Road Again.” Mom al­ways packed blue­berry yo­gurt mixed with Grape Nuts ce­real. Now I an­noy my own kids with the same song and snacks ev­ery time we travel. —Re­bekah Hubbard, Di­mock, PA
