Do you remember how much fun it was to plunk down a penny and punch out a disk on one of those long forgotten "punch boards?" Indeed, do you remember punch boards? Do you remember going to your local "corner store" and standing at the penny candy counter and pondering just what tasty delights you would find in that little brown paper bag that held the aforementioned penny candy? If you were a country kid as I was, do you remember getting your foot impaled on one or two of those prickly cream colored "stickers" that grew wild along the pathway to your store? (we didn't have sidewalks in our neighborhood.) Read my old THE WAY WE WERE column and return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear....from out of the past come the thundering hoof beats of the great horse, "Silver;" the Lone Ranger rides again!"
