Cassette Tapes
Doug's Secret Stash

When Was the Last Time You Listened to a Cassette Tape?

This week, I did something that has become a necessity. I am attempting to clean and organize our rooms in the back of the house. I'm sure many of you can relate with spring and fall cleanings. It's funny how whenever you clean a house, you come across some long lost antiques or a cherished memory, or something broken you felt you could fix, or even something you'd rather just forget. I have to admit, the cleaning part has not been real fun, but it has to get done. I do like the organizing and finding things a lot more. I think the discovery that has given me the most chuckles is front the photo that you see here.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories, “Burger in the Morning,” A Navy Story

I spent my active time in the Navy aboard US Navy Destroyers in the '50s and '60s, those small ships they called the greyhounds of the sea because they didn't spend a lot of time in port.  It could be very boring during those long stretches at sea, so the officers and crew would make up their own entertainment in the form of variety shows, known as "smokers" on ships.  These smokers were often used as a forum for the enlisted men to voice grievances or pet peeves on the way the ship was being run. The story below is about one such a time.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: House Calls

I love that scene in old westerns of a carriage with a patient horse, waiting for a doctor to come out of a farmhouse, swinging his bag and carrying an armload of baked goods or other forms of barter to pay for services rendered. It is a picture of a time that will never come again, for the days of house-calling doctors have gone the way of the dinosaurs.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Poll Hall Memories

People ask me how I can remember all the things I write about that happened so long ago, and I have to admit, I get a lot of help from old friends.  For instance. Dick Prisendorf, a childhood friend of mine came up with a memory we share one day. The memory was about the old Play-more pool hall, a place that played a large part in both our childhoods.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: A Close Shave

I guess a memory can come from anywhere. That fact was proved to be true on Thursday as Doug and I discussed his recently shaved beard that he grew in support of the Detroit Red Wings. Unfortunately, Doug’s team spirit only carried them so far and his team was defeated. So it was that on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, a day that will forever be remembered by the Sokolowski family as the day daddy became recognizable again, Doug had a shave.
