We have a small (2 chair) barbershop a mile from me. It's owned by a pair if twin 20 something year old girls (they inherited it from their dad) and they still do it that way. They are both car people and love to talk about vintage cars. Also both of them carry (they allow it in the shop) and love to talk guns and shooting.

Re: For some of the older guys

Yes, I remember the Good Humor Man, with those "Looong Drawers" he would pull out with all of those goodies. The one thing that sticks out in my mind was, during Christmas, after we got all of our presents and after Santa Clause came, was the smell of plastic toys back in the early 60's. My "Bazooka" and my baby sister's baby toys has this "aroma" that the plastic emitted that I will always remember.

John, you should change your post name to: Vega$69LS lol....

we had Bunny bread. he would come to the door carrying a tray of bread, plain rolls, cinnamon rolls etc
I would meet him at the door and told him I wanted the cinnamon rolls while asking mom please, please mom please. I could see her shaking her head no.
it took me a while to figure out why we couldn't have them. there was no money for luxuries

Re: For some of the older guys

With today being Christmas I can still remember waking up and coming downstairs to find an electric train circling the Christmas tree. I still have a couple of my American Flyer "S" gauge trains steam trains packed away in the basement along with my dad's 1920's vintage standard gauge Flyer set. A couple of years ago I set up my dad's old standard gauge Flyer set and was surprised to see it still ran. The best part was in the bottom of the box I found a few dried up pieces of pine boughs from the last tree it was under. Talk about memories.

Re: For some of the older guys

One of the best memory's of my dad was him teaching me to drive his old hot rod truck . The cops caught us with me driving no license with my foot to the floor and my dad tells the cop I'm teaching my son to drive !!!.
The cop chewed us both out and told me to get out of the driver seat and sent us home with no ticket. Today they would have buried us . My dad is a really good guy and I talk to him a lot as to not miss a chance to talk to the guy . I love that man !!! I wish he could see what I wrote . My dad he's a great man

Good for you Jim. Those old American Flyer sets are treasured by the "S" gauge collectors today. Set them up on a four by eight board and enjoy them. They are probably worth their weight in NOS Camaro parts.

My late Father grew up during those times and used to tell me all kinds of stories about the cars and the girls. I miss him!

Still have an 58 0r 59 O scale Lionel set packed away. Transformers are about dead. And a Houston Texans H scale. We were going to bring them out around the Christmas Tree but other events ensued.
