He probably wears himself out just slipping his shoes on. But hey if you think about it. He will save money on shoes before long.

What is my point? If my memory serves me you said that you worked at one time at INB at 38th and Sherman. While I have no memory of any of the employees at that bank, I find it interesting how people 65 miles apart probably crossed paths at one time.
Heck, I may have even crossed paths with Moe.
Yes, I did work there for a short time right out of high school, before I left for college. But it was a good bit later than the years you were there. Amazing how that area has changed. It sickens me. I grew up 4 houses off 38th Street, between Post Road and Franklin Road. It makes me so sad that at this time I cannot visit the very neighborhood I grew up in. I went to Marshall.

I am sure I never met Moe, because he is still alive.

That being the case, you are way too young for health problems. I dated a girl that went to Chatard that lived in that area but closer to 10th street. I have not been in that part of the city since 1968 0r 69. The woods I used to play in and ride bikes in has bodies being discovered in them. The city has changed, not for the better.

Well, you know, I wish that were the case. But illness doesn't know age. I had an issue back in the spring. But was clear. This July, well, not as lucky

I have never been to a strip club in my life, but was there one at 38th and Sherman in 1974? Don't remember a theater there either, but if I had gone to the movies it would have been Lafayette Square, or Greenwood.

I just wish I could go back to that area. It is ruined. The last time I went to the neighborhood I grew up in I left crying. It was so sad to see what it had become. When the kids were bussed to Marshall it was the beginning of the end for that area. I recall 38th Street was only paved to Mithoeffer, that was only because of Marshall. My first real paying job was at the McDonalds at 38th and Post Road. There was next to nothing there then. Funny thing is we don't realize how special those days were until it's almost too late.

The drive-in theater on Pendleton Pike, or Shadeland Ave., or the Carlyle indoor theater on Shadeland. And shopping at Eastgate when it was freezing cold. Good times.

Refered to as the good old days. We just got through the Covered Bridge festival in Parke County, it seems that people are in a terrible hurry, without regard for others, only interested in what they want. This obviously is not true for all people, but it seems that we are in a time when we can weep for America as a whole. Financially, morally we seem to be going down the tubes compared to what we had as a nation as teens.
There seems to be a spirit of entitlement, instead of work ethic. Maybe you see it in the healthcare enviornment, I don't know.
The best advice my dad gave me, which I gve my son, is that no matter what job you do, garbage collector, or brain surgeon, do it to the best of your ability, with excellence. I followed that advice and succeeded, my son is also.
Excuse me while I take a shot at Howard.

Howie, you seem to be quite an expert, and have much interest in the "dickiedo's. Are you GOP? Not that the two are combined mind you.

Everyone is in such a hurry. The tech world has helped us in so many ways. But is still hurting us in others. Not going to college was not an option. It was set in stone to be the best you can be. But these kids wanting Ipads and Iphones at age 5 and 6, is just crazy. And parents actually giving in. Just kills me. My dad said he'd never see a black president. Well, he did. But I actually think he was glad to go in some ways. He hated what the world was becoming. It was such a struggle for him to adapt.

When we were young and lived around 38th and Arlington mom would take us to Eastgate some. Most shopping mall shopping was done at Glendale. I remember the steam locomotive at Broad Ripple park. Devington at 46th and Arlington had a little open shopping center also. During a major snowstorm between 1957 and 1961 we were snowed in at home on Bolton. Dad and my brother and I walked from 38th and Arlington to 38th and Sherman to the A&P to get groceries and walk home. I remember making snow tunnels in that snow it was so deep. Much fun as a child, as we played outside yearround. so many memories, that many kids today miss with their nose buried in IPOD's or what ever the new electronic device is.
