John,

I have attached a picture that my granddaughter took of Cleve Masad and I on his patio about a week ago.

Just a couple of old “codgers”.

We had a great time reminiscing about “old times” as we always do.

Cleve and Britt currently have their 37th foster kid. God must have a special place for them in heaven because they have done so much good for so many kids that didn’t have anyone to care about them before Cleve and Britt came along.

Betty and I love Cleve and Britt for all that they do.

The weather was great while we were in San Francisco, my granddaughter had a great time, and we visited several good friends while we were there.

Editor's note: Thanks Tony! Yep... A picture speaks volumes and this particular picture is going to be the talk of Lee County for a while.

Do You Remember?

What if you could go back in time... let's say to Bishopville in the 1950’s…..

Do you remember sitting in front of the Radio or Television and hearing these words:

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"

Maybe you remember Boston Blackie and gal pal Mary, and their dog Whitey and the chills that ran down your spine when you heard the announcer intone:

"Enemy of those who make him an enemy, friend of those who have no friend."

What movie comes to mind when I mention Gary Cooper's name?
Where was Gary Cooper’s place of birth?
When was he born?

Who went with you to the "picture show" to see “Singing In The Rain”?
Can you name the actors/actresses?

What about Francis the Talking Mule? Besides Francis, who was the star?

I'll bet nobody can tell me who hangs out at Louie's Sweetshop?

Do you remember these characters?

Leo Gorcey ... Terence Aloysius 'Slip' Mahoney
Huntz Hall ... Horace Debussy 'Sach' Jones
Bernard Gorcey ... Louie Dumbrowsky
David Gorcey ... Chuck (as David Condon)
Benny Bartlett ... Butch (as Bennie Bartlett)


For those of you who were old enough, who were you dating in the 1950's?

Do you remember your first kiss?

What do you remember most about growing up in Bishopville in the 1950's?
