Another Time Machine Trip - October 30, 1952
I'm itchin' for another trip back in time. The controls are set for New Gretna on October 30, 1952. Care to come along?
The churches are still active, election day is scheduled in the New Gretna Fire House followed by a Ham Dinner in the Knights of Pythias Hall on Route 9, Girl Scout Week is highlighted with a Halloween Party, the fire company responded to three fires, and Donald Maxwell's 93 year old grandfather in Wading River is ill. Of course, there's the usual gossip buzzing around.
My big question about this trip is how does someone get 1500 bales of dog hair and why would they store it in their barn? There must be a lot of bald dogs around Green Bank. Perhaps I should start a doggy toupee business. Hope someone out there can shed some light on this puzzle.
It should be an enjoyable trip, so put on your Time Travel goggles and hang on tight . . .
Hope today's trip back to October 30, 1952 was enjoyable for you. If you saw someone you recognized, drop us a line here at the blog with a little info or story about that person or persons.
