Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: The Old Wolf Hunter Of Sedalia

Let’s face it, the majority of people we meet as kids do not stick in our minds that well. If they aren’t family, there has to be something unique about them to make them memorable. One of the really unique people I can still remember from my childhood was an old wolf hunter, and unique isn’t a strong enough word to describe him.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Old Cooks And Pie Safes

I owe my overweight status to the fact that I had a mother and grandmother while I was growing up who had few peers when it came to cooking, and oh how I enjoyed getting this way. This Mid-Missouri Memory always makes my mouth water.

Jack Miller Recalls a George Jones Concert in Sedalia

The news that country music legend George Jones had died at the age of 81 came to me in the form of an overheard conversation this morning. The fact that I had been listening to one of his CDs in my pickup just minutes before could not be called a coincidence since his are the ones I listen to the most.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: When Fixing Flat Tires Was a Way of Life

One of the things most of us do not miss about the days before the synthetic breed of tires came along is fixing flats. In those days of less durable tires, the rite of passage from passenger to driver included the ability to not only change a tire, but also to fix a flat. The following Mid-Missouri Memory probably won't mean much to younger drivers, but to those of us with a little grey in our hair, it will.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Barefoot Days

Summer days are not far away, and if you are like me, they will bring you some memories of when you were young and carefree. No memory I have says that better than when I think about shedding my shoes as a boy for summer vacation. I hope this memory will help you revive those memories of your own barefoot days.

Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: Triggering a Memory

As I have written before, there are certain things that can trigger memories. One of those things for me is driving through the old neighborhood I grew up in. I did that a few days ago, and it brought forth a lot of memories. This time the memories came from an old brick house that stood on the corner of 5th and New York. I say stood, because it has been demolished and was just a pile of bricks with its broken roof resting precariously on top of them.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Walking Ohio”

Sedalia seemed huge before everyone owned a car or had access to one. Most people took a bus or walked to town in the '40s and '50s. There were cars then too, of course, but not enough to cause traffic jams in Sedalia. There was not much need for personal transportation, when a bus ride was a nickel and a transfer would let you ride all over Sedalia for that one fare. My uncle Bill Wickliffe drove a bus in those days, and I liked sitting right behind him so I could watch him maneuver that big machine around tight corners without running over everything.  Riding the bus was almost a social activity in those days, and a lot of gossip was shared on those slow rides to downtown Sedalia.
