I remember visiting my gramma who lived in Corbin, and every morning we had to listen to the obituaries on the radio. They always played the most mournful version of When They Ring Those Golden Bells before they were read. My gramma lived so far out in the country that her newspaper came in the mail so you were always reading yesterday's paper.

If it's the same David that I knew it was short sleeves the year round, a great big tuba and a "Merry Christmas" wish to you almost every day.

<quoted text>Sure do, I worked there when I was about 16.
I had lunch there almost every day when I was in High School. A bunch of us would pre-order on the day before so it would be ready when we got there. That saved time to play a game or 2 of pool at the Fad, Palace or Mico before lunch was over. Bo Eubank's dad usually worked the register and Bo's future with (one of the Sturgil twins worked there too.

I'm looking for some information. I have a 1949 Silk City Diner that was in London KY run by John & Mae Evans from 1977-2005. Their nephew mentioned to me that it my have been going to Tombstone Junction for a 50's theme park. Is there any chance here that someone may know something. A realtor by the name Ray Ream's owned it. Please contact me if you can help I don't know where the diner was before London, KY.

David died tragically in an accident at the rail yard. Big dude, could whip three men at once, and did so. Great guy!

Easter egg hunts at Trademart, David Ashley use to have something to do with it, would get all the stores in Trademart to donate things, was AWESOME!
Big O (Oscar Davenport) riding a wheelie down main street before the NIBROC parade.
Johns or Pauls discount, can't remember which one we had down by Howard Brothers.
A1 Fence Company, had birds and a deer or bear out back.
Luther Wallens old garage where Hart Funeral Home is now. Loved going there and looking at the dogs he had for sale. My family bought two Saint Bernards off him.
Flatbed Trailers pulled in to Trademart and the singings they had on them.
Dr Pepper Jeep that was given away by WYGO.
Western Auto
JC Penneys downtown. Remember seeing a little short man that worked there, ran up and down the elevator with boxes.
NEWBERRYS! loved going in there. Loved the fountain drinks. They had a video game in the back that had a rifle that you shot jungle animals as they jumped out on you. Anyone remember this?
That little man you speak of is now in his 70,s and drives a school bus,is still is a very nice hard working man! When he retired from there he started driving.

I remember Triplett's Supermarket. Mr. Triplett always wore an apron, and he used to plug a watermelon so we could sample it before buying. And my mom used to get my back to school sweaters in their dry good section.

Yes, she did. Triplett's sold just about everything. I used to love going in Courtesy Drug Store just to look around too. It was a block or two from Triplett's. I just found this site today and reading some of the posts really jars some good memories.

I remember most of these old places. Had forgotten about a few of them. I remember the first movie I watched at the hippodrome was bambi(made be cry lol) I think I was about 5yrs old. My first job was at roses then later I worked at druthers (which was burger queen before that). It is sad that most of these places are just history now. I too am family of the Cobbs that had the little grocery store. That store actually started out up on gordon hill, later moved down to main street.

The Cobbs market that was on gordon hill was located just about across the street from circle k. That was in the 1930s. Obviously the one on main street was their descendants. Thought I would post that fact, as most people would not know that. The people other than family that would know this have probably been gone for years.
