I lived in Ithaca for a few years. Went to Boynton Jr. High. Used to live up on South hill behind the College when there were nothing but farms there. My mother still lives on the top of a "mountain" in Freeville. I'd love to live out there, or down in Chat. Cty ... but the commute would be a bitch...
Well, it's still a wonderful place but we're dealing with the same crap most other places are dealing with-- road congestion, sprawl, kids on computers, etc. How's the historic city of Buffalo? My grandparents lived there and around Fredonia. I had a great uncle lived around Bemus Point... Have a good day, C d.

Memories yep. I can appreciate that. I live on the lake, but I still know about the other swimming holes around here and the fresh air. We don't have any cows or chickens per say. But Bon fires in the backyard quite often. This is a nice place to come home to after a days work. No Gated communities to live in, walking in peace at night, all that. A Professor in American
history, recently told me that in a lot of ways this county is thirty years behind the rest of the Country. Take that however you wish, I love it here.
I miss the old ways...the good morals of most people, church in a small town, small congregation, coffee klatsching at the diners and listening to the farmers talk about crops, livestock etc. It is nothing like that in FL, the only coffee klatsching is the O.B.'s that get together at McDonald's and complain about gas prices and politics.

Another way it is different here is that nobody takes care of anybody here, it seems like it is every man for himself here. And it doesnt feel right. Still after all these years, something is missing.

You guys are making me tear up!

I especially miss autumn in southwestern NY. The crisp, fresh air, the smell of leaves, the color of the leaves, the apples, my gosh the apples! NYS has the best apples of any, anywhere!

I get to visit "home" twice a year for about two weeks each time, sometimes more, occasionally less. My friends and family visit me continuously throughout the year because, despite where this forum says Iím from, I live on the coast in NC.
I've been gone from NY for 20 years now. My gosh, how the years fly! My husband was in the military but no matter where we lived, NY has always been "home" to me. And it always will be.

Now look at that. This thread stared out bad and now it is a Chautaugua County love fest. I also remember Twin Fair by the way. Crazy Daze in Dunkirk was a big deal for us too. I remember popping the baloons in Woolworth to see how much my ice cream sundae would cost. And I bet I am the only one in my office building that has miked a cow and had the unpasturised milk too. I remember sneaking into my neighbors field and starting a stampede with the cows. Pretty sure my coworkers never did that. I am sitting here smiling now.

I'm sure I have been in the CG Murphy store but I not really certain. Was it an old fashioned hardware store or am I thinking of something else?

As posted in another thread, Todays weather stinks! Cold and rainy!(Just trying to cheer up you folks who miss this place).
I used to say this time of year, it rains till you welcome the snow. I'd trade it any day. Summers are beautiful, only a few days, hot as hell. I didn't have to stay there but chose to up until recently. I miss Jimmytown.

I agree. I used to go to Gerry Rodeo for biker benefits. Lily Dale is very serene, isn't it?
