Another happy childhood memory gone the way of the dodo.

Someplace buried in the family archives is a photo of me, I think around age 8 or so, posing with a very large Indigo (black racer) snake around my neck during a visit to Frontier Town. I remember it well. I drive past the site every once in a while, the last time just last week. Always sad to see it in its present shape.

How True. Many moons ago but I remember it well.

I remember going there when I was a kid and they had deer and bear. My wife and I took my nephew when he was 12 and they didn't have the animals anymore. But, he had a ball and still mentions it occasionally. And he's almost 35!

I am 37 now but one of my very first memories is getting robbed on the train (of all my bubble gum) by a bandit and riding the hand pumped carts on a train track. Can't remember what those are called but I remember them. But, things fade away and I hope it gets a new purpose in the future and brings jobs as they suggested.

Was in there the other day. Someone has torn half the porch roof off the blacksmith shop, destroyed the waterwheel ad stolen both the trip hammer and forge.

Those of you into such places may appreciate this guy's website: https://urbanpostmortem.wordpress.co...frontier-town/

I went to FT so often as a kid that I came to know the drill on the train robbery well enough that I stole a cowboy's gun from his holster from behind. That summer job cowboy like to took my head off when he realized he'd been bested by a 9 year old.

My wife found a picture of my visit to FT . Its of me locked up in the stocks. That was almost 60 yrs ago and I know she would like to see me back in the stocks again. Very cool place and a lot of good memories.

Hand cart. Watch Blazing Saddles again. I think they cost $50.00.
