My top 10:
1) Loved walking down the street to the local market and spending 20 cents on wax bottles with kool aid inside. We'd suck on the plastic all day once we sucked out the kool aid
2) Carnations on Olive, outstanding
3) Dairy Queen on Fresno and McKenzie, great burgers
4) Manchester Mall - Theater saw Sound Of Music there, got my first kiss too
5) Roosevelt Rough Rider games, 1967 - We beat the heck out of Fresno High every year, well, almost
6) Camping up past North Fork, Whiskey Falls
7) Watching Twilight Zone, Way Out, Sebastian hosting Shock Theater in this order every frickin Friday night, never missed my fav shows
8) Blakleys swim park and golf course
9) Farmers Market Mayfair on Tulare, Rossi's Pizza, great Calzones
10) Donna Coble, she broke my heart!

Some of my favorite memories I didn't see while glancing through others posts...
The Pop Shoppe (5 cent bottles of pop)
Sky Harbor Road (before Table Mountain)
Lost Lake
Sunnyside swap meet and drive in
Roller Town
Munchy's (25 cent burgers)
Desegregation in school. (busloads of kids riding clear across town to help all of us understand that our differences weren't really differences at all)

I can't help but wonder while taking my stroll down memory lane this morning what the lists of my children will look like.

Great lists and so many memories from the previous pots

1) harpains dairy - near my house off of Ashlan.
2).country squire theater - first and Ashlan
3). Pizza & pipes - near the old gemco (now Target) on shields. Weird old organ in that place on the 2nd floor.
4) Ashlan park driving range - near the old harpains fairy.
5) home channel movies - McKinley Ave. was the first place to rent vhs or beta movies when vcr’s came out in the early 80’s. I remember you had to choose a side based on whether you had a vhs or beta player when you entered the store.
6) Flauts donuts (I think??). Near Radcliffe stadium on Blackstone and Clinton I think (used to be a strip mall there with this classic donut shop). So good!!
