All good things must come to an end.

Segregation ended! Look how that has turned out!

In those days the gas station attendant filled up the car and checked all the fluids. I remember smelling the gas fumes - for some reason they smelled good!

I remember them. Remember points, condenser, dwell, plugs, flats all the time. Opening the hood in the middle of an intersection and tapping the carb float to unstick it.

I gathered many eggs. Watched some hatch. Always had a pet chicken. Soon learned to always pick a female. Roosters would always start fighting you after about a year.

I remember watching The Little Rascals when I was a kid! Of course by the time I had seen it the show had already been decades re-run! But it was still a good show!

I watch a lot of older shows and I try to imagine how big of an impact the show had on the people back then when TV and the Land Line Telephone were the hottest ticket in town!

When I first started watching TV it was Looney Tunes in the morning

Then there was HBO about 5 years later... and Transformers and the Dukes of Hazard and Night Rider.
