Flash from the Past

This old photo shows two special places in "Old Gunter."  It's almost hard to believe but back then we actually had a cleaners--Lowery's Cleaners. I can still smell the air that you smelled when you walked in. The owner, Tommy Lowery, was a funny little man. He was our first/second grade teacher's husband.

The "Gunter Cafe" is where I think I had my first paying job. Wow...I wish I could remember how much I made as a waitress. I don't think I was even 16 years old. But I do remember Red Rasco's pies she made.

What memories!

  1. I've been now to take many a notalgia trip. They're free, and they often bring smiles to my face & warmth to my heart.

    Your photo made me think of the corner grocery in our neighborhood. It also made me hungry for pie.
