    Seen this one before. Freakin' hilarious....and I can relate to just about every one of them.

    I remember going to see the Joske's Christmas display. OH!...and Captain Gus....can you say, "It's think-tank time!"?

    What about...You remember when 55 KTSA was THE radio station to listen to.

    Midget Mansion is now a Lowes. The Fat Farm is now theSpring Hill Event Center. It's a swank place for wedding receptions, reunions, etc.

    My old neighborhood is "That Other Place".

    -KJ
    Nice Floaties.

    Man who stand on toilet, high on pot.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway.

    you remember the floating rocks (where were they?)

    your mom would take you to Kiddie City just to feel what air conditioning felt like.

    a trip to Spartan's was your weekly highlight.

    you would stay up late and sneek out to see the headless horseman ghost rise from the grave and ride again. (where was this?)

    you still have your pencil from the Buttercrust Bakery trip.

    you thought the roller coaster from playland park was the biggest baddest coaster of them all.

    you saw your first horror movie in the third balcony of the Majestic Theater (the 3 Headed Monster meets Mothra).

    all you dreamed about was that daisy double barrelled at Winns.

    wow. Winns.

    I was a hyperactive kid. I had a lot of probems keeping still and keeping my mouth shut in class. (imagine that? )

    anyway, when I had a good week, I used to get a one dollar allowance. My mom and I would walk over to Winn's to spend it.

    I got some neat toys there.
    You could get a lot with a dollar back in the day.

    I didn't loose my virginity at the Mission Drive Inn cause I think it was already closed by the time my parents let me date, BUT

    I think my parents and I saw every Clint Eastwood Western and the old Peter Sellers Pink Panther movies there.
