Life before 9-11.

The times when civil war era statues weren't being torn down to satisfy critics who think everything is about satisfying their opinions.

Fearful respect of God.

$1 per gallon gasoline. (I know we aren't supposed to post such things on TBH D)
And diesel fuel less than $1 per gallon.

KFC chicken prior to the changes made to it and how it is cooked.

Spanking misbehaving kids.

Significantly lower taxes on everything.

When being gay wasn't OK. No transgender crap.

I'll be 50 next year and I wish I could go back to the 70's when times were much simpler.
I could go on forever but here are a few of the things that made me happy.
Wood burning kits
Sling shots
Riding in the back of the truck with my Brother and Sister.
Sears Wish books
The Bicycle in the wish Book that had shocks like a dirt bike. (that thing must have weighted 100lbs)
Daisy Pump BB guns (the kind that took you and a friend to cock if you were under 7 years old)
Go carts with a String tied to the throttle that you pulled over your shoulder.
Tree houses engineered by a 10 year old 25 ft off the ground.
Bike ramps made by stacking old tires and a 2x6.
Ice packs (the old kind that you put Ice in for your ankle when you tried jumping the ramp above)
Chevy Luv Trucks.
My Dad.

Most of the little towns in SE Iowa still have real hardware stores. You can buy guns, ammo, knives, hunting and fishing licenses, bulk nails by the pound, elevated lumber bins out back as well as all the standard hardware stock.

Here is the oldest one still in business.

Serving as the oldest hardware store in Iowa, New Providence hardware has been helping the community solve its problems for over 150 years. While the ownership and community that surrounds New Providence Hardware Store has changed some over the time, the one thing to remain the same the friendly faces when you walk in the door and a wide range of products to help tackle any project you might be working on.

It's been turned into a compressor shop and last time I paid any attention, the old Keller Feed Store was still a lawnmower shop. Both of those changed some years ago. I remember when there was only one grocery store in Keller and that was the Food Fare which was about a block south of there. The "Keller Bum" spit on my little brother one time while mom was pushing the grocery cart with my brother riding in the bottom of the cart. Ha! Good times. I remember when Keller was less than 2,500 people, a bunch of cows and horses and Keller Pkwy was still called FM1709, was two lanes and the speed limit was 55. Our address back then was Route 1, Box 44A. Man, that place just ain't the same....

My uncle (and boss) would send me to McDonnell for parts when I was 14, they always gave me a hard time and pretended they were gonna call the cop on me, same thing at the old auto supply. The bum's name was Artie, the dog at the feed store was Murle. Once a year in the spring time they had free barbecue sandwiches and would give your dog shots for 6 bucks. Jr's coffee shop, Golden Burger, and the old rock gym. That was back before Keller sucked as bad as it does now.

The days when you could walk in to a mall department store and buy a hunting rifle, and no one cared.



My first rifle was a Marlin 30-30 from Montgomery Wards

Rear window gun racks. Back in highschool I had a shotgun and one rack and a baseball bat on the other. I never would have dreamed of doing anything but bird hunt with the shotgun. The baseball bat could serve mutipal roles if someone got sidways with me. Those days a long gone. I guess we just had better sence back then.

Going to the one grocery store in town for dad on my bicycle, signing receipt for credit, everyone knew everyone.
Walking to and from elementary school with friends, never concerned about any dangers,... except Doberman's down the dirt road.
Running Colorado River all summer long, only going home to eat and check in at night.
Entertained with a fishing pole and 22 long rifle, only care was how many worms or how much ammo I had.
Knowing the Sherriff and his entire family by name.
Everyone in town knew my dad, which made it easy to be respectful to any adult and not get into any trouble.
Being a kid meant being outside and never being bored. We used imagination and learned how to have fun. Settled our issues like boys and made us all tight. Drank from garden hoses and looked forward to cool aid and cold watermelon.

I'll say it again since it appears that nobody seemed to notice:

THE CHICKEN RANCH IN LA GRANGE aka / The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Google it.

Paid the place (no pun intended) a visit in June, 1970. Stayed there all day, I was 24 years old. It was quite a party. That doesn't make me cool by anybody's standards. All that was required was the right amount of ambition and enough US currency.

At least 60, probably more.

There are still folks around who will put new seals in those Benjamins. Mine was my dad's, it's around a '56 model. I can still blow up a GI Joe man, or kill a field lark with it.

Sierracharlie out…


Used to go to Bears barbershop in Lampasas for the straight razor. He made me bleed just a little once , but I still loved it. Haven’t found another barber that does it since he closed down.

I do agree on the Benjamin pellet rifle. I still have mine, but the seals are shot out.

Mine is a .22.

There are still folks around who will put new seals in those Benjamins. Mine was my dad's, it's around a '56 model. I can still blow up a GI Joe man, or kill a field lark with it.

This series struck a note with me. Dale, I have all those material things you mentioned, and that old Benjamin pump with the corn cob fore end is one of my most prized posessions... Still have my Sheridan 5mm too. I grew to like it more than the Benjamiin... Remember those old green Benjamin cans of pellets with all the oil on the pellets? Did y'all keep your spare pellets in your mouth!!?? It's a wonder I ain't dedd from lead poisoning...

And Justin, I have always said I was born a hunert years too late... but then I guess the Lord knew what He was doin' cause I'd a probably long been dedd or in jail, or hung if I'd been around when my grand pa was!

I used to know where every culvert, ditch, mudhole or pond was within a 10 mile radius around my home was that had little white crawfish and every catalpa (or as we called 'em ca-tobbe worm) tree was. You could catch 10 bream or goggle-eyed perch or little channel cats on one ca-tabbe worm! Lots of Catalpa trees around still, but haven't seen a caterpillar on one in many years.

I'd give anything for the old model 61 Winchester 22 that my brother traded off for a brand new shotgun!! I stayed mad at him for 15 years over that one... still makes me want to throat punch him sometimes... but alas, he's 80 years old now so I guess it's time I got over that....

GREAT Thread!

Oh and the barber shop deal... only one old man ever cut my hair from birth until I went to college in '75... Mr. Ellis Edwards at Ellis's Barber shop on North Raguet in Lufkin, Texas!!
