Talking about old memories, what about going to the movies on Saturday morning canada goose outlet woodbury and paying nine cents to get in, having the rest for popcorn, candy or hotdog and a drink.

WOW! what a big difference in just a short time. smile.
Also, we could get on the bus in Pecan Park (don remember the grocery store on Evergreen) and go to downtown Foley for a dime. How times have changed! I look back and remember when I was young my parents reminiscing about the old days. Here we are doing to same thing. Oh what fun.

canada goose clearance sale I remember the huge display windows at Foley Bros. downtown being decorated to the MAX during the Christmas Season, as well as the garlands that stretched across and down Main Street. What a wonderful and joyous time of year! canada goose clearance sale
Canada Goose sale This talk of riding the city bus to downtown Houston (which my cousins and I did many Saturdays) brought another thought to my mind. Does anyone remember a skating rink located somewhere in the vacinity of Harrisburg/Lawndale/Wayside? I think we rode the bus up Broadway (from Park Place) to that general area, then walked about a block or two left/west after we got off the bus. Canada Goose sale
Did anyone else go there to skate on Saturdays? I wasn a fancy skater, but I was pretty good at it which was unusual for me, having two left feet as I do. I loved the feeling of sailing around the rink, canada goose outlet near me crossing feet as I glided around the end of the oval.
Canada Goose online I think kids from schools other than Deady/Milby went to that rink as it seemed rather daring to me I didn know canada goose outlet online uk many of the kids there. Can you believe our parents gave us that much freedom riding the bus to a “strange” part of town, walking through an unfamiliar neighborhood, skating for a couple of hours, walking back to the bus stop and waiting there, riding the bus home and then walking the mile or so to our canada goose parka outlet uk home. I can imagine giving my kids (or especially my grandkids) that kind of exposure to the dangers of the world. Canada Goose online
cheap Canada Goose Years later Ed and I frequently went skating with our boys and their friends, especially when we were Cub Scout leaders. That was a typical Saturday outing for us in Cody, Wyoming. The kids at the school where I work now have “skate day” in the gym at the end of each six weeks, and I am often tempted to don skates canada goose outlet montreal and join in. But I am dissuaded by the thought of a broken hip, arm, or worse. Karla cheap canada goose outlet in new york Canada Goose

I am sure Gladys was one of those graceful skate dancers I watched with envy and tried to emulate. canada goose discount uk canada goose clearance
