I remember Scooter. Went to school with him at SGC. Of course, who didn't go to SGC with Scooter? I think he had just about 1 of every degree available out there.

The Corrall Drivein was located in what is now the parking lot of Sears, Post Net and others with parking located around it. Also, how about the Wilkins Stubbs Tobacco Warehouse where Harris Furniture isnow located and also the Daniel's Feed and Seed Store located where Downtown Thrift Shop and Harris Furniture is now located. Oh, those were the "Good ole Days" as my elders used to say.

When you could leave your doors unlocked and not worry about some Reliford breaking in to steal your baking soda. Before there were food stamps people worked for food. Cigarettes were not necessities.Alcohol was illegal and very profitable!

Ice house in middle of town and Carters sold the best steak sandwich and Bobbys Treat Shop but it was also in Pearson. Worked at cityhall and Farmers Bank and the labor department with Mr.Harper. Went to South Georgia College shopped at Mr. Smiths grocery store down from Cables Coat Factory. Remember Dr. Stapleton and Dr. Burch. Oh yeah Chandlers Hamburgers for 15 cents. BC Moores across from Norris Shoe Store and Coffee County Bank on the corner across from the Grasshopper Shoppe and another store that started with a J. I bought a john romain pocketbook with initials on the outside took all my tobacco money.

I think the store I bought this bag was called Jacobsens. Those bags were expensive. Mine was navy blue. Mama got mad because I spent all my hard earned tobacco money on that bag and the initials fell off and the old man that ran the store wanted to charge me again to put the darn things on again and I would not pay and a sticker point stuck out of the bag and stuck me everytime. I quickly learned not to spend all my money on name brands but I loved that bag. Worked all day in the tobacco field and on July 4 night went to Garrdine stadium to see the fireworks. Great fireworks. Worked in the McKinnion's tobacco patch with Scooter and he was a trip. What great days!
