There was a Standard gas station on my way to and from school in the early sixties that had a Coke machine out front. For a nickle you got an ice cold (and I do mean ice cold) 6.5 oz. bottle of Coke, just the thing on a hot walk home from school.....

Had a coke machine at a Sinclair station and barber shop that was half way thru my paper route. On a hot summer day that was refreshing. Probably not the best thing to drink but it sure was good at the time.

Loved them too, we also used the mfg town on the bottom to gamble, the winner would be the one who was fartherest from where we were. Those were great times, but so are these.

Safe travels

What do you miss?

Long ago summers and having the run of Webster County, WV. with a sack of peanut butter and Elderberry jelly(home made) sandwiches. Aunt Este's huge biscuits out of her wood burning stove were heaven...I can remember watching the home made butter melt into those pillows of goodness...I've always been easy to entertain. It just may be time for a camping trip back to Holly River State Park...the place is still about the same as it was fifty years ago. Bob

How about a Cherry Phosphate, a REAL Banana Split and Saturday morning watching the "Little Rascals" on TV.

I was going through some old things that had been stored away last night. Found a book that I had to keep up with the gas mileage for my brand new 1965 Ford. Gas varied from 27.9 to 31.9 cents per gallon. Darn I sure do miss that. If IRC, diesel was around 22 or 23 cents per gallon. I REALY MISS that NOW.

There were frequent gas wars in Ca. in 1970 and you got a free car wash if you said filler up for the going price of about the same $.27.

I'm not as 'age-advanced' as some of you, but I remember clearly riding my bike to the little country store near my home with a $10 bill, and walking out with three cartons of smokes for my dad, an ice cold RC Cola, a Moon Pie, and $.80 change for my trouble. Simple times they were.
