Re "Missing from Family Vacations? Magic Fingers " (Forum, Jack Ohman, July 20): I loved Jack Ohman's article about his long-ago vacations with his brother and parents and always being on the lookout for a motel with a pool and magic finger beds.
I remember those trips along the East Coast well. Sometimes, all five kids went along in that old Rambler. What do I remember most about those long hours in the car? If we were looking for a gas station or restaurant, and we passed one across the street, my dad would keep on going until he found one on our side. The heavy sighs in the car were loud.
