Cool!! Thank you for the picture Terry, I was getting dirty looking under the trailer and at the hitches and for that wayward football... Nice to have some refreshments. I remember those drinking cups with the paper inserts and the bottles (rootbeer maybe?) and I think there was a pair of matching mother daughter blouses from New Mexico just like that for mom and me, with full skirts and lace trim just like that in the picture. I also picked up a red flocked bull. I think I was five and on the way to California to visit cousins. Funny the things you can remember that you never knew you even had them kept... What fun this is!

Thought it looked familiar. MMMMMMMM and black cows or as you youngins call it, rootbeer floats.

How about Green River? We lived in Chicago and didn't have a car or need one with the busses and the "L" (elevated train.) So we walked to school, the store, church, the bakery, the butcher, well you get the idea, everywhere. Sometimes my dad and I would go for an early evening stroll down to the corner to Chess,' the drug store, soda fountain, test yout tv tubes place and I would watch the Green River swirl 'round and 'round in that glass dispensor on the counter. Sitting and twisting on the stool, I would order a vanilla ice cream cone and my dad would grab the paper. From the Sunday papers he would always read me the funnies later. On the way home we would stop at the liquor store, he'd pick up a quart of beer and have a quick shot with the guys behind the counter. Then once back home, we would sit outside on the steps of the porch until the lightning bugs and crickets came out and talk with the neighbors as they walked by on warm summer evenings.

Sorry no picture...wish I had. I did find a book "Remembering the Neighborhoods" of 1950s Chicago and it is a very nice collection of pictures and stories.

I love remembering the old days. Please keep your rendition and pictoral going Terry.

It struck me that many kids who would read that name would call it "high-res"

Like a TV...

Very Dear CarolJ...

Oh what wonderful memories you bring to this very story as well!!

I remember going to the local soda fountain and enjoying an ice cream or frappe, Absolutely Delicious!!!!

However, I frowned upon some of the folks working behind the counter being called [ soda jerks ]. Kinda rubbed me the wrong way, Get my drift?...

They always served up great treats, and I for one just found " that phrase ", offencive and also very rude!

So glad that I was on ' that side of the counter what just enjoyed their services to us '.
Now had I been employed and serving the public way back in those days and someone called me a soda jerk, they'd have gotten a chocolate eye with their soda or ice cream, whatever flavor! ' Too Boot '!

Just remember that the fond memories will out last any bad ones!
Let me check... I don't know who said that, must of had something to do with Wize Potato Chips though!

With Love,

' Way Funny '!
Them .05 cent Hires Root Beer's was awful good though!

Even if you left the " High-Res " TV in the box or after you hooked it up to Cable so's you could watch it,... can you see where I'm going over here! We baught Houses back in the day for less than what they charge just for cable, by the month... ?
Think about it!....
I'll get back to ya...

Rivet After Being Detoured Onto A Dirt Road In Ohio...

After a tornado had closed the main highway, we put up that late afternoon. The next morning, after breakfast, my folks recruited a very efficient cleaning crew [ US ] to wash some of the mud and road dirt off of our caravan, so to speak! Needless to say, we pitched in and got the vehicles road worthy and ship shape for an early hit the road again on the fallowing day!

Pictured after the cleaning job was done, my Dad returning from the very local store.
Now, to this very day and I know that my Dad was agile as a 'dear, in this pic he had plenty of altitude and cleared the first puddle, not so sure that he stayed dry over that second one though! Notice my Sister Dianne next to the house was kinda taken-a-back as well.

Pic # 1. Dad, Taking A Leap Of Faith... OH YA!

Thanks Aislide... I was thinking exactly the same thing. ... However, at the same time, with Dad's very athletic abilities , and a very Magic Carpet involved over here, I can attest that the odds were in his favor, if you will, of staying dry!

Knowing My Dad, And Trying To Share Him With...

Y'All, is one of the great parts of our story!

He never asked for much, and was soooo talented in every way. ' Just A Rock ' for us!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Mom was Too!
She knew better than to wake him for a [ Gitti-Up-Go-Day ] without having a freshly brewed pot of coffee, at the ready!
One thing that we learn in this life, is to love our Moms and Dads.
These two will forever be loved by us, and any whom got to know them...

Picture this!

Love you all,
