I remember Jimmy Dean as a country singer with his own TV variety show in the 50's long before he did sausage….for some reason as a young girl I thought he was so cute and my dad use to tease me saying that he was cuter that Jimmy Dean and I'd yell at him NO YOU'RE NOT

I remember all those things. Penny candy brings special memories as my grandparents owned a small corner grocery attached to their house. We would visit and when we left my grandpa would give me a small paper bag full of penny candy. You don't see a lot of those candies anymore at any price.

When there were gas wars, gas was 19 cents a gallon. We could put 50 cents worth of gas in the car and cruise for hours. Those were the days!

when I first moved to Houston (1983) there was a Woolworth and I loved shopping there and sometimes eating there. It brought back memories. It's gone now but I was so surprised when I first found it.


no AC at home or in the car so all the windows were open in the house and when riding in the car. I don't remember it being too bad most of the time but guess because we were use to it.

wow the clothes line between trees sounds like a lot might need rewash because of the birds. I remember when sometimes the birds would poop on some of the clothes and they had to be put back in the dirty cloths. not fun.


they don't even teach writing anymore and my younger son can't read cursive. my writing was always criticized because it is too straight and to be correct it slants to the right.
