    The smell of gun powder, strong coffee, hanging in the air at our local gun club on a cool, still morning as my grandfather was competing. I was 6 years old.

    FM converters

    Squirrel hunting with the best dogs this side of the Mississippi, cause deer were rare, and there were no turkeys.

    Shooting bats flying by the lightpole with a 28 gauge sxs on Friday night.

    McCloud and the Rockford files. All in the Family, Flip Wilson and Laugh In on the huge TV that got poor reception on all but 1 of our 3 channels.

    Explorers and Rangers were full sized pkup trucks.

    Smith and Wesson only did one thing- revolvers which they made well.
    Gun selection was limited, but it was all quality.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    I remember listening to KOMA and WULS radio in my dad's company car on weekend evenings. It was a 64 Ford Custom. Later it became my first car. I remember the thunder storms were really loud and scary. It used to rain a lot. My best friend and I hunting birds with BB guns, then later rabbits with our .22s. My dad could fix anything! My mom's roast beef and noodles every Sunday. Sure miss them both. I also remember the A-bomb drills in school, and the tension of the Cuban missile crisis. JFK being shot. My first girlfriend in grade school. Lots of good memories, my childhood was great.

    Probably my first honest, "see it all', memory is watching my dad shave. My Dad. Immortal, or so I thought. Standing there in a white "wife beater" t-shirt, his wet blond hair combed straight back, hot steamy bathroom, the mirror over the sink 'squeaking' as he rubbed a hole across the glass to clear the steam. He put shave cream on my face and handed me a plastic hair comb. He showed me how to "use" it. I shaved with my dad ... now rest in peace. Smoothest shave I've ever had. Thanks Dad!

    I remember
    Walking to school and going home for lunch.
    Listening to AM Radio: WFIL and WIBG.
    Riding my Schwin StingRay
    Having a hot dog and coke at the 5 and dime lunch counter, which was right next to the pet dept with parakeets and red eared turtles.
    Playing Free-the-Pit, Poison Block, Red Light/Green Light and stickball.
    The Whip stopping in the neighborhood.
    The corner bakery, the corner pharmacy, the corner hardware store and the corner candy store.
    Sunday spaghetti dinners.
    The cute blonde girl that lived across the street.

    I remember going outside to turn the TV antennae to pick up a different station.

    I was my Dads remote control for the TV we got 4 channels and if the atmosphere was just right we got 5

    When my Grandfather showed my his treasure chest, some silver dollars, his Purple Heart, his Fathers pocket watch, a Japanese sword and coins, a Large shell fragment that got stuck in his rucksack, his dog tags and a photo of his best friend who never left Guadalcanal. He told me the story of each and he got tears in his eyes a couple of times, that was the day I got to know the Man that was my Poppaw

    Getting my first gun when I was six. And getting home from school when I was 14 and my mom having the news on telling me that a plane had just hit the world trade center thinking at the time it must be a terrible accident until we saw the second plane.

    Yup. It was considered going out to eat, so we only went once in a while.
