Local Gas Station Goes Retro, Brings Back Memories Of Full Service

A local gas station company, ICO on London Road, announced that they will be offering full service fueling at their pumps week days from noon to 3p.  They use to be called gas jockeys or full service attendants.  When I was a child there was more gas stations with full service than self-serv.  They would pump your gas, wash your windshield, sometimes your headlights and check your oil. My mom always went to Harold's in Carlton because they came out and pumped gas for you.

Does Anyone Still Have Foosball, Pool Tables Or Air Hockey In Their Homes Anymore

Luckily my friends had rec rooms, rumpus rooms and basements filled with fun games, because all I had was a phonograph.  That was it, a phonograph.  Through my friends I learned how to play pool, air hockey and foosball.  We recently acquired a foosball table through a Family Pathways Thrift Store in St. Croix Falls, WI and childhood memories came flooding back.

My Purchase Of An Autoharp Sparks Childhood Memories [VIDEO]

I went to Wrenshall School, it was a K-12 school that required that you took music as an elementary student. That meant whether you could carry a tune or not, you were in choir. Whether you could read musical notes or not, you were expected to play the recorder, the triangle (is that the technical term?) and the bongos. To the credit of Mrs. Busch our Choir/Music Director and Mr. Smithson, the Band Instructor, they did introduce us to a full range of musical instruments.

Who Got Their Grad Pictures Taken At Dean’s Photography In Cloquet?

Long before "digital photography" we didn't have the choice of having a family member or friend take our grad photos.  You went to a professional photographer and your choices of backgrounds were limited.  I think most of us had an indoor head shot, a picture leaning into a tree with a leg up, a picture laying on the ground peeking around a tree and if you got your picture taken at Dean's in Cloquet, leaning against the stone wall in the front of the building.
