Our fondest memories are from 1957 and up to mid 60's...everything about them, from Monday nites downtown, canteen and parkway dances, leaving your doors unlocked when you went to the store, Leaving windows open when you went to bed. driving around INSIDE proctor park, etc...come on, keep this thread going...

They were the best times. I forgot about the band concerts every Thursday at the parkway. Nothing but honest clean fun. Nobody that I knew of did drugs. Didn't need them. Even though there were no cell phones, there was no lack of communication. We walked everywhere.The streets were safe, our homes were safe. We were respectful of higher authority such as, teachers, parents etc. I could go on and on about those wonderful yrs.

those years can never, ever be duplicated. They were the BEST years of our lives, also. We are 70 years young, and often reminisce, telling our grandchildren what it was like. They are so excited to hear our stories.

denile= denial.....garbadge= garbage.. for the record!

Being 75 years old, I can assure you that in comparison to the recent times, it was 'miniscule' if any, that went on. Maybe you can go to the public library and look up old newspapers in the 'archives' You will, most definitely, see the difference immediately!
