Omar Bread and the Greenlawn bus line?
Omar Bakery, A & P Bakery, Big Bear Bakery, Kroger Bakery, Wonder Bread and wasn't there a Hart Bakery that made KFC buns? Now only Kroger Bakery is left, I believe, as far as union bakeries.

Greenlawn bus line, the buses with exhaust that would choke the occupants of the car behind them?

We had a milk man and a bread man when I was a little kid.

It is kind of funny but during the holidays, they place Santa's House in front of the Pickaway County Court House and I believe it is the fireman who play Santa on their off days. Although one of my grand-daughters wanted to know why Santa's House had wheels on it. Ha! The Court House bells ring daily, playing songs, very pretty.
The newer places, like Bob Evans and McDonalds are open.
My parents seldom mentioned finances, my father always worked at least, two jobs and never complained. What a man, we adored him!
Our family always went to Lazarus downtown to see Santa, then spent hours skating at the Centrum.

Have you ever been back for old times sake?
It's a good feeling to go back to your roots....never forget where you came from...it's part of you.
I go back every so often just to reminisce .

I don't know why I remember this, but I do. But Omar was last owned by Fazio's in the 1970's. I don't know what happened after that. Fazio's didn't last long here, maybe they kept making bread for the Cleveland stores?

I just remembered why I know this ... my grandfather used to buy things from their outlet store. I would tag along on errands.

It was such different living and less stress.
We went to the movies every Sunday after lunch.
Played outside till the street lights came on.
It was a safer world and people were more trusting.
The work ethic was sterling. Today, some kids are always late coming to work but they leave on time.
That was white America. Before the European Ashkenaz decided that white Americans with their inherent industrial might needed to be diluted into oblivion with mud races. On a brighter note, more whites are realizing that a separate white land will be required...to avoid a civil war.

Wow! Can't believe the retail stores there held off so long.
I don't think my parents ever had a credit card, and get this.....my dad never had a checking account his whole life...he is 95 and still kicking!
I never had one untill I got married...don't use them often and if I do, I pay the balance off at the end of the month. I can't stand to owe anyone a penny!
Must be because of the times I grew up in.
Do you ever yearn to go back to your roots?
Every once on a while I drive by all the houses I use to live in. Just going down memory lane.
I'd enjoy the lifestyle of the time, but not the location today. It's leftist kook central and in my hometown you can't but a decent house for under $700,000.

Yep. Ten miles from downtown Boston and when we were 12 in the summer we'd leave the house at 10 in the morning, check in at dinner, and stay out until 9 at night.

Yep the bakery was called Hart's Biscuit. They had their own brand and and also made the biscuits for KFC. I worked for a company that made boxes for them.

That's why the pumpkin water tower is located in the south end now, instead of Nicholas Drive.

I've only been back 3-4 times in the last (number of years withheld).
Most of the relatives that I cared to visit are gone now.

Really, you don't miss it? Still a quiet little place with some problems but I love many of the old homes and pumpkins, and I still have my teeth! Ha!

Don't you miss Wittich's Candy Store? Established in 1840. The nations oldest family owned candy store? Better than Anthony Thomas Candy, in my opinion.

Did you ride the elevator that was decorated like a rocket ship to go up and see Santa? The decorated windows were so pretty!

Circleville owns some land on Pontius Road near Bolender Pontius Road for a new water tower, I hear. Near Hargus Lake. Possibly another pumpkin tower?

I don't remember if I did. It would've been around the late 70s, although I do remember the windows being all decked out.
