Back in the fifties once in awhile we would go to the ice- cream shop ,
Varieties included hot fudge sundaes , or cherry sodas .Real treats ,
Banana splits , with soda pop . Pretty black and white tile floor , counter
tops of mirrored black with swivel stools . If more then two people you all
take one booth . Then later off to the swimming pool .
Remember cherry cokes , or root beer , air conditioning was new and also
at the drug store , a very special treat just to cool down , always a sweet
treat we would always want more .
Sometimes our parents took us after church to the old favorite soda shop ,
Certain days they had special prices on their treats . And at the register you
could buy homemade lollipops . Music playing on the old jukebox , make your
Choice , press two keys , one was a alphabet, the other a number .
Many old tunes , Bobby Daren , Sandra Dee , On that street we’re different
shops , the baker and the shoemaker . Our bank, butcher , the Asian food store ,
and five and dime , Woolworth , Kresky , Grants , are gone now and Target .
Replace with K- Mart , Walmart’s and Target just fine .
How I miss those old hardwood floor , and saw dust at the butcher , we would
take are shoes to the shoemaker for cleats , Khakis , saddle shoes , whit bucks ,
Pat Boone , plaid shirts and pleats . Restaurants were White Castles 14cents ,
Then there was Deco’s that made great crepes . Everyone went to the movies
to see Technicolor , House of Wax 3 - D and real good black and white horro
Phyco Movie . Men had a fashion with slim belts , pink shirts , and drape slacks
made them look taller .
Trolley cars ran through the larger streets , only San Francisco do they remain .
Bells rang , train painted bright red and yellow , progress happens, things
Change , but we all gain .
Live each day , as if it were your last , say your prayers , remember
The Lord forgives , the past , for all have sinned , and most of all
share your memories .
