    I Love the old pictures.



    Hadn't thought about Woolworth's in years. I used to eat lunch there almost every day when I worked downtown in the early 60s. The lunch counter was always packed.

    There was another "dime store" across the street -- a McClellans. Their lunch counter wasn't as good.

    I found this amidst my a drawer of old photos in my late father-in-law's condo.

    When I was a kid, this was my shortcut into town. Falling down, and now it's just a memory.

    My wife asked me how to thaw a turkey? I said I usually just tell your mom a few jokes. If that doesn't work there's always alcohol.

    Boys, we're going a little too fast, don't you think? (Listen to Johnny Cash below) This wreck happened about 50 miles from me.

    1950s movie projectors. This was where I ushered, and when things were slow, I'd go up and watch them run these monsters. I'm not in this picture.

    I give up. What is that, Trade? She looks like a nurse so it can't be a lie detector. A nerve pain reliever? How about a PTSD reliever for military.

    Not sure. I did a google image search for "1950's shock treatments" and this was the funniest one I could find. But it looks earlier than the 1950's.
