Things were great back then. Cruising around "A&P" parking lot - I mean, that was the highlight of the weekend. We would go to town around 7pm and cruise till whenever.(while listening to that funky 80's music, lol)
Going to "Druthers".....Those were the good ole days.
Gas was .89 a gallon, you could take 5.00, buy a pack of cigarettes at the "big chicken" and fill up with gas and cruise all night.

I remember getting off the school bus, down at my mothers store in town, every afternoon and hearing that funky 80's music on the radio everyday.
Please post some of your fond memories and what things were like back then. I seem to remember hearing about John Dixon a lot back then. He was said to be the greatest lawyer to ever come from this area.
~God bless you-
Sam Davies is ten times the layer john dixon was.
