Growin up going to the Rodgers Theatre on Saturday afternnons with friends to watch the John Wayne westerns and then stopping at Pruitts Drive Inn where the bank is now across from the south gate of the football stadium on the way home for a slawburger, fries, and a shake.
In my teens years, sneakin in to a private pool late at night to skinny dip with a neighborhood girl, or crusin the A & W and making the loop across the bridge to Frosty's, or up main street to Bluff Lanes.
Playin football on cool fall days behind what is now the health Department building on north main street, or at Bacon park, or the stadium, or Whitley park.
Later, parties at the lake on senior day/night...
In my twenties, partyin at the Waikiki, Barbs place, PaPa's Lounge, or the place at the lake(forget the name)
Growing up in the Bluff was a blast for me...Don't live there anymore, but if I could make the money I make where I am now, I would...

I was 10 when my dad moved us to Arizona, 1961.
My bestest memory was Cane Creek swimming hole and my run up and down Green Forest with cousins.
Black Creek Elementary school on Play Day, Hillcrest Park picnics, My grandparents was the joy of my life. Mud pies and Kites that flew hundreds of miles in the spring winds. You must say its the Memories that make a place stick with positive attitudes when we grow older.

We lived in St louis Ill, but every other weekend
we made the trip to Poplar Bluff to visit
grandparents and other family. We later moved
to California and would only get to make the trip once a yr.My dad always called PB home, no matter
where we lived. Beore he passed away he said
he wanted to go home and he did, from California to Missouri,he was layed to rest in the Cool
Springs Cemetary. So you see that saying has
a special meaning for me."Theres no place like home"

How Special. Your Father was correct, its where you memories take you, and usually back home where you feel the love as that child
Good times in PB

1) FINALLY getting to the third grade so that we could play in the 3rd grade pit at Mark Twain Elementary School.

2) Sneaking in the exit at the drive-in with a girl who was way too cute for me. Only to see the flash light come across the lot to throw us out.

3) Raider basketball in the Glory Days!

4) Living the good life as an employee of Jim Hogg's Supermarket. Bill Hogg is the best employer a young man could have ever had!

5) That ice cream truck that used to come around.

6) Playing golf at the old PB Country Club.
