Default Things that should be brought back

The hiring thread got me thinking ....

We should bring back the Caboose. Always enjoyed seeing those as a kid.

The train went past Porter Elementary almost everyday about recess time. The only thing separating the playground and the tracks was a chain link fence. That fella that rode in the caboose waved to the same kids every time it came past. When the train came, we'd stop kickball, kill the man with the ball, dodgeball with rocks, whatever.....we'd haul butt to the fence to wave to the man in the caboose.


My kids had Angry Birds.

I remember grandmother taking us to see the trains. The fella in the caboose, most of the time had candy he would give out. Great memory. I think they did away with them in the early 90's

Got rid of the caboose and cut about 4 jobs per one train. I know this being a conductor/engineer. Replaced with a red blinking light with an air gauge. We call them an EOT. End Of Train Device.

As much as I enjoy the convenience and selection at Home Depot and Lowe’s I really miss the old Mom and Pop hardware stores. I have great memories memories of tagging along with my dad on Saturday mornings. They are still around I guess but now you have to be in a pretty small, isolated town to find one.

Real hardware stores, not this ACE bs. A&M/UT football games. Drive-in Theaters. Respect for police, teachers, authority, neighbors. Pea gravel threads. Real butcher shops.

I miss going to those with my grandpa back in the day. Falls City has an old hardware store that is a blast from the past. I have never stumped them in the 20 or so times I have gone in there for random crap.

For all you boys that miss the old school hardware store, and you're in the greater Ft. Worth area: take a trip through McDonnells in Keller. The store was owned by a high school class mates grandfather. As the grand dad got old he gave store to my classmate. Grandad took pride in, and the legacy lives on, of having all the off the wall stuff a guy could ever need. Cool place.

Mark Keel is the owner, great guy.

Well, they give trophies for ninth place so I doubt snow cones are a problem.
