Sidmans and Don Divines restaurants, Bill Crow Volkswagon, Butchers.

Anybody remember the little guy that used to walk around selling tamales off of a cart? I know, a lot of people said they were made from cats, but they sure were tasty. I remember my folks driving around looking for him. Seems like he was usually down around the bus terminal. The bus Terminal. There's another one for you. It was the best place in town to buy a comic book! Except for the Tamale man, these were all prospering businesses, and actually, the tamale man seemd to have a pretty good business!

How about the Castle restraunt. Used to go in late and get Texas toast/with honey and hot chocolate. Yum
Does anyone remember the name of the pharmacy on Walnut close to Goldies donuts that had a soda fountain? Use to get Cherry false fates for around a dime. It was just cherry syrup pured over ice. Used to walk over a mile for this treat. What a lose when Urban renewal came to town.

We had lots of fun at the golf course. We used to call it the Goat Farm. That's when it was nine holes. It was great back then.

I remembered the Tamale Man was on the corner across the railroad tracks in front of the lumber company. He was there every Friday night. Boy were those tamales good. We would get two dozen at a time and run eighth street until we ran out of tamales. Good ole days.

I remember Dad bringing home tamales on Saturdays. I think he bought them from a woman who had a stand set up in front of Elmore's.
Another memory I have is him stopping by the convenience store/deli (where Jan-L's flowers is now) to pick up a bucket of fried chicken before taking my mother, myself, and my grandmother for a drive in the country on a nice weekend afternoon. The name of the store is lost to me at the moment, but they had excellent fried chicken.
Also, going to the Union Street Market to buy meat from the butcher.
I have very vivid memories from my childhood here, and even though it seems I am younger than some who have posted here, I am really enjoying reading your fond memories.
I also remember dollar movie night at Tal's Midland, and the summer matinees.

Newberry's, Kress and Old Yellow Front. All great places to go when you were a kid. People parked downtown and walked around the downtown area and talked to each other. Two bowling alleys, Sunflower bowl was on 10th downtown. Allstate where we used to look in the window at the mo-peds.
Also this town had a bunch of neighborhood grocery stores, three movie theaters and two drive-in theaters. We have lost a lot.

I remember that chicken! Best in town. We got it, garlic pickles and cheetoes and went to the drive-in. I think it was Kwik Stop. George Fickland owned it in addition to georges cafeteria. They served the same chicken there as a dinner meal.
