I Had A Frostie Root Beer Today

My Granddaddy Rutledge’s favorite soft drink was Frostie Root Beer.  My dad liked them too, but his favorite was Big Red. 

I have so many fond memories of my dad’s dad.  I loved working with him pulling water wells and fishing with him on the Guadalupe River near Gonzales Texas.  One of the big treats when out on jobs with him (or fishing on the river) was eating some hot German sausage with cheese, bread & ketchup and washing it down with a Frostie Root Beer.   There was nothing quite like it!

I haven’t had a Frostie Root Beer in years.  I may not have had one in 20-30 years, but I had one today and it was as good as ever.  Even better than that great taste was reflecting on memories of my grandfather and my dad and the great times we had – which often included a Frostie Root Beer.
