Catching the Greyhound or Trailways on the side of the road

Well, technically it's wasn't really on the side of the road, it was at the store where Julus Chambers St. turns into Wadesboro Rd.

Actually, Greyhound did do that. When I used to travel with my grandmother on the bus from Orlando to Tallahassee to visit my great-grandmother, the bus used to drop us off and pick us up at the dirt driveway off the highway (U.S. 27 in Jefferson County, FL) that led to her house. Back then, the same drivers always drove the same routes, and they knew my grandmother.

-Tin metal roof houses (now back in style- I have one)

My traveling relatives used to talk about that. They used a white handkerchief to flag the bus down. I guess the driver had the ability to sell tickets.

That's true, Cap. I completely forgot about the white hanky. :nod:

RIGHT AFTER EACH LABOR DAY, AS A KID MY FATHER WOULD TAKE MY BROTHER AND I TO "ROBERT HALL" TO GET SCHOOL CLOTHES FOR THE YEAR AND THEN TO "THOM MCCAN's" TO GET A SINGLE PAIR OF SCHOOL SHOES AND A SINCLE PAIR OF CHURCH SHOES.  SHAME ON YOU IF YOU DESTROYED OR OUTGREW EITHER.  YOU HAD TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT LABOR DAY.  :nod:

HAVING A CAR WITH WINDOWS THAT WERE MANUALLY ROLLED UP AND DOWN. WATCHING JAPANESE GODZILLA MOVIES LATE AT NIGHT (IN BLACK AND WHITE) WITH GODZILLA IN A BAD COSTUME KNOCKING OVER BUILDINGS.  WATCHING JAPANESE MOVIES ON LATE NIGHT TV WHEN THE SOLE
GOOD GUY WOULD LITERALLY KNOCK OUT BAD GUY AFTER BAD GUY AND YOU OCASSIONALLY WOULD SEE THE SAME 5-10 GUYS OFF CAMERA GET UP ONLY TO BE DISPATCHED AGAIN AND AGAIN.  THESE MOVIES WERE ALSO OUTRAGEOUSLY HILARIOUS WHEN WATCHING WITH A GROUP OF THE BOYS AND PASSING AROUND JOINTS FROM A "DIME" BAG.

WHEN YOU GOT A SWITCHING (WITH THE ONE YOU CHOSE) FOR TEARING PAGES OUT OF THE "GREEN BOOK" ON THE LACE DOILIES IN THE LIVING ROOM TO MAKE MINITUARE PAPER AIRPLANES.  WHEN YOU WOULD BUY $.25 CENTS BALSA WOOD RUBBER BAND AIRPLANES AND GLIDERS FOR ENDLESS HOURS OF FUN UNTIL THEY SIMPLY FLEW AWAY OR LANDED ON A NEIGHBOR'S ROOF.  ...OR WHEN LATER YOU MADE A KIT MODEL ROCKET WITH GUNPOWDER PROPELLENT ENGINES THAT AFTER A SINGLE LAUNCH FLEW OUT OF SIGHT, NEVER TO BE RETRIEVED OR EVEN SEEN AGAIN!  (YOU CAN TELL THAT FOR MANY YEARS OF MY YOUTH I WAS A BUDDING AERONAUTICAL ENGINEER)!

Living dangerously- building a go cart out of wood and mounting a lawn mower motor on it using a bicycle chain and sprocket to drive the rear wheels.
