I meant Darryl's son, little Darryl. oops.

It was That Stewart's Barber shop! I'm thinking that Dean's dad
was the owner.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ron Stewart was the son and was a barber there. He married a girl that graduated in '64....I want to say however that Ron went to Capitol Hill...he was quite a car enthusiast also.............

HEY: we're all trying to put our minds to task however, we forgot about the original Grant/Southside Drive-Inn hangout.....WESTERN DIP......That (in the middle to late fifties and early sixties) was THE place to go. However, since there weren't a lot of places on the Southside of town they (the kids) would go to places like Karp's, Bixlers, Hollies, 15th st. Del Rancho, and there was one out on Newcastle road (can't remember the name)...then Potter's was built and there became an insurgence of drive-Inn's....."Crappiehead" don't you remember Country Club (D&D) being called "Hillcrest Drive-Inn"?......And, Coit's along with Hollies were kind of neutral places at tht time......

1. Anyone remember the name of the Shoe Salesman from Rothchild's?
2. How about the T.G.&Y. Mascot and what was the brand name of their company products.
3. Crappiehead:.....what was the name of the Grille we went to in Grant Square Shopping Center????? Jewel Box Florist was next door to it....
4. Crappiehead:.......do you remember the portable building that we went to lunch at across Penn from Grant? I remember Hot Dogs, and Frito Chili Pies were like 10 and 15 cents each......Health department made them move when we were in the eighth grade.....
5. Last but not least, I have a 1965 marching band trophy won by Grant...Anyone from '65 want it??????

See ya next time:........................
That was Dairy Boy (one of the first)! At that time it was owned by Hansen/Atlee Dairy on South Penn about the 1900 block. Leonard Hansen and Harry Atlee are both dead now. The other eatery was the Burger Bar in Grant Square shopping center. Do you remember the Red Barn restaurant close to the old RX at about 53rd and Penn, great big Red Barn shaped building with white trim. Only there about one year......

I'm pretty sure the Grant hangout in the early to mid 1960's was Al & Dub's drive in on SW 44th, just a little east of Penn.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The age you said your sisters were...Ask them if they remember having to wear a potato sack dress to be initiated into the Pep Club? Ask them for some of the things that were required to get in the pep club....Or what all happened when Mr. Coffelt and Mr. marker came to Grant?....How about Mr. Hess or Mr. Norris...can anyone tell what Norris taught besides FOOTBALL??? and what was his first name?

Crappiehead:............Remember Cha-Cha-Cha?...............How about when the Cherry Bombs were flushed down the commode from the second floor to the first?
Yeah, it worked Semrad was NOT a happy Camper............

1. Remember Capitol Hill Ice Cream very well...Ammonia Chiller and all...(do you know what an ammonia chiller is?
2. On the North East Corner there was everything from a pool Hall (Snooker hall) to a brothel..... One of the guys who furnished the pony rides in the front of the stores had his warehouse there until he bought the building on 29/Harvey...McInnis medical center was behind there right on 29th until they built their new building on 45th & Pennsylvania. Dr. Rozin left Opper for a while and that was where he was for a while.

What was there that you were thinking about? My sister was a graduate of '61 from Grant and she and I were pretty close so, I was going just about everywhere she went unless she was going on a date....How about Jerry Husted?? If you remember Norwood, where did he go from Grant??...His first name was Tracy which was unusual for a man in that day.....

Yes, the ammonia chillers work on the same theory as a modern day condensing unit, but what your referring to is what they used to keep their cream and ice cream cool, also put out an unusual oder, very distinct. The Pool Hall was the most lucrative business I remember being there and yes I knew Dr. Rosin and dated Opper's daughter a few time's and can't even remember her name. Opper was also at 29th and S. Western next door to Ellis Hudson's (Frank Hudson's Dad) Pharmacy. His partner at that time was Woody Olson who was my doctor for a period of time. I'm sure Opper is dead, I know Woody Olson is dead and I read where Rosin (who was also my Dr.) past away about 3 or 4 years ago. Rozin worked up until the day he died at a Southeast Altheimers (spelling) unit at about 35th and Harvey. It was called Southeast something. Mauldin, Yates and Wheeler bought the corner across from Grant where the old Dairy Boy was and rented a small part to a Dentist and Miral Parker of Parker Prescription Shop which is still operating there. I remember Norwood went on to another school but forgot which one it was.

I figured it had to be Mrs. Fench thinking you went to Heronville then. I know for a fact that she was teaching since prior to 1943. My older brothers and sisters all had her and we are quite a bit apart on age. Well, good thing I'm not a gambling man.....

Leonard if alive would be well into his nineties, I did read where he died and we both use the same CPA. Maybe there is a mistake but it was made by both the Daily Oklahoman and his CPA. Could there be a Jr.? Leonard's big deal was to buy the Tivoli Inn in Downtown OKC before urban renewal and remodel it and so forth. Apartments were his thing. Are we talking about the same guy who would be in his nineties? I'm not above making mistakes. Please let me know...

Mrs. Maxey and Mrs, Hulgan are two of the teachers I remember at Heronville.
I remember going to Mrs. Maxey's class one morning and we watched
"Animal Farm", an animated version of George Orwells book by the same name.

Apparently Leonard was named after his dad then because Leonard has mentioned his dad and the Inn. Leonard is in his 60`s and has become quite the world game hunter.

"Old-Timer's" disease comes and goes....right now, it's gone for a while...I can remember selling roses on the street corners when I was in Jr. High. These "Hustlers" would get kids to stay out ALL DAY on Saturday selling roses and they would pay us a percentage of what we sold. Well, I convinced them to let me go last on the corner I would get.... so, when everyone else was out of the truck and set up (8th grader) i talked the guy into giving me ALL of the roses that were left to sell but, i wanted to go Northside...He didn't know OKC so he agreed...I had him take me to Casady Square and set up up my tent. When he left, I marked the roses Double for a couple of hours then had a half-price sell (original price) and sold out in about 2 hours.....Made about 30-35 dollars that day.....big money in 1959......

Do you remember the Blue wall plaques you could order from the comic books? I order a set ( though my mom was going to kill me) and they cost 13 cents each...you were to sell them for .35 cents or 3/ 1.00. Since no one else was welling them anywhere I marked mine .50 cents or 3/1.00. Sold the first order in one day. I doubled my order and went to work. There were "Jesus Loves me all over the neighborhood" (at 50 cents). Made close to $100.00 on those... that was really BIG Money.

Did any of you guys hand out hand bills?. I made a deal with Bob Poole to put handbills out from 36th st. to 51st. from Agnew to Independence. I hired other kids to hand them out and starting doing mine...I was almost through with my area when Bob pulled up and took me to where the other kids had thrown their handbills in the creek. I handed out handbills til 1:00 a.m. that night....Never did like having employees.....

I LOVE the OKC Memories thread, and have so enjoyed reading everyone's thoughts and memories of our wonderful city!

My husband and I both grew up as "southsiders" but have since defected and moved north to satisfy our desire for an historic home. It doesn't hurt, either, that we are now each 5 and 7 minutes respectively from our jobs.

My husband's late father was a family practice physician on the southside and one of the founding doctors of what was once called South Community Hospital (since rechristened Integris Southwest).

I graduated high school in 1978 and my husband graduated in 1973 (Christian Heritage Academy and U.S. Grant)

Here are some "southside" memories that some of you may share:

- Al & Dub's drive in on SW 44th (the "Grant hangout"). This was really more in my older siblings' eras - the early 60's. I believe Wilkerson's was the "Capitol Hill hangout". In those days, it was kind of a "greasers vs. the socs"

- When the 14 Flags drive in was at the end of the world, or so it seemed?

- Crystal's Pizza after games.

- Cruising McDonald's and Sonic on SW 59th Street until all hours

- The Park Terrace Theatre (and El Rancho Sanchez, right next door)

- Parking lot carnivals at Reding Shopping Center (now the Integris SW parking lot)

- Christmas shopping at Sears at 44th and Western

- When Crossroads Mall was brand new and THE place to be!

- The tragic Sirloin Stockade murders. I remember a big Help Wanted sign going up in front of the restaurant a couple of weeks after the murders. it was a portable sign on the side of a large plastic steer

- The opening of the "Big TG&Y" as we called it at I-240 & Penn. I was there as a small child with my older sisters, when "Dandy" Don Meredith of the Dallas Cowboys was there signing autographs.

- The opening of Arlan's Department Store at 44th & S. Western. It later became Target. Debbie Reynolds was there with Agnes Moorehead of Bewitched fame. Debbie was married to Harry Karl, who was the owner of Arlan's. If I remember correctly, he went bankrupt.

- Shakey's Pizza at SW 56th & Western.

- "Northside" seemed like a different world. Anyone remembering venturing to drive down the "Twilight Zone" street? (Actually Carey Place in Gatewood).

- A certain "mansion" that the brave drove by somewhere out my Draper Lake and scared each other silly with urban legends.

I'm sure I'll think of more, and hope to hear more from some of you.

I'm roughly your age and grew up NW OKC, but my grandparents lived in Capitol Hill and I remember many of the places you mentioned... Went to 14 Flags Drive Inn occasionally, fondly rememebr old Sears and TG&Y. Of course Dodson's was a favorite.

Coit's management thanks everyone (27 total) for the attendance and they appreciated all of the past business we told them we had given them over the years.....I can't believe Southeast had the nerve to actually show and man the Grease Balls from Capitol Hill being there....The only missing were their "Switchblades". All kidding aside, you other guys get in the middle of this with us. Someone help me out to figure who Redskins/General is....Next month we'll plan something big....Missed you General 78.


See ya next time:................



Thanks General 64

Sorry guys and gals we missed the get together we had a minor emergency and could not make it in time, sounds like you all had a good time though and a great attendance.

Did ya`ll save me a rootbeer?


27 people wow, a record already maybe next time we can have 52!

...Here's something to try and if it works for you tell us where this
recipe came from...

8 oz. Cream Cheese .......... best you can find
8 oz. Sour Cream ............... best you can find
1 raw egg .......................... whatever
1 tblsp. salt .........................
1 tsp. Garlic Powder ...........
blend all of the above together... add tblsp. Paprika

serve CHILLED... remember raw egg.

This has to be something from Dodson's. Every other place used what ever
cream cheese and sour cream was on sale.

It sounds like a dip.

Just guessing.

Sooners 48 Washed out 0 in the 3rd period.

Why couldn't we do this in '84?

OY!

DODSON'S CAFETERIA... 59th & S. Penn... 44th & S.
Western... I have never heard anything BAD about Dodson's Cafeteria... Tell the
rest of us your GOOD stories about Dodson's Cafeteria...

See Ya next time...

I don't remember Dodson's at 44th and Western, but I do remember Adair's. We
ordered Thanksgiving from them in 1968!

Dodson's was great. We didn't get to eat there very often but when we did
I liked it. There was something about a kid getting to pick what he wanted to
eat and leaving the vegetables behind.

When did Dodson's open? 1962?

After the incredible get together, I drove around the southside. 63rd and Villa
was different than I remembered. Jody, of Jude and Jody, or, Jude, of Jude and
Jody may have lived on the corner, but, the second house north of 63rd is where
I remember his drive way being on Villa. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hillcrest used to have 'annexes' during 63-65. They were temporary WWII
buildings. I stayed in them for a couple of years.

Man tough crowd on the rootbeers!

I was in Hillcrest during 69-71 and had forgot about those annexes till you mentioned it.They moved them out in 70 I believe.

I had a black lady for a teacher in 4th but for the life of me cannot remember her name, had Hulgan in 5th, Crittenden in 6th.

Did Jody live on the corner or in the house just north of 63rd?

I'm trying to remember all the names of the people who's yards, on Villa, I ran
through in my '60 Renault.

I was thinking about that hurricane, and do you remember the tornado that went down 25th street?

It tore up so many old trees and houses, I remember my dad loading us kids up and we went chasing it.

Boy those were days! No guts no glory.

Dodson's opened in the early 50's next door and to the east of Langston dept store on 25th street in the heart of Capital Hill. They were in a basement. We did all our shopping in Langston's bargain basement. The had an old time wooden machine you could stand on which would X-ray your feet and let you look at all the bones in them and how your new shoes were going to fit!!

RAMBLING'S OF AN OL' NOSTALGIA FREAK !!

Remember any of these:

June & Gin's (underage beer) at 44th & Independence, the same with Tiny Tim's @s.w 59th & Sante Fe. O'Mealy's Cafeteria where Crystal's ended up. How about Coot's Convenience and Meat (underage Beer) and the Hickory House next to Coits, Hogans restaurant at Virginia and Main. Stereo City and the FOUR track players. I still have some plus the tapes. Yount's Super Marker and Hollie's Variety Store. Rancho drug and the barber shop at the south end. Massey's auto accessories still operating. V&H Muffler, Sonny the owner died and left it to the midget Billy Jack who is now dead. Griff's Hamburger's, 1st 15 cent burgers in town. Zorro Taco on S. Western and the Tastee Freeze on 44th between RAncho and Blackwelder later to become Los Taco's who since moved. Potters drive-In come as you are - dine in your car. Joe Bass owner of Little Joe's boot shop now deceased but owned by another little Joe not related, which is next door to the old Rodeo Theater. How about the AGnew Theater and Agnew Skating Rink. First location of Moore's cycle's selling Mustang's and Cushman Eagles, first at Linwood and Blackwelder, then south robinson and finally west main. Sussy's mobile pizza wagon. Beverly's chicken in the rough on 23rd and classen. The Daily Oklahoman paper drops, one on Barnes just east of Penn 44 Bowling Alley, another at s.w 37th on robinson. Luttrell's barber shop, george, carroll potter, plase (plaz) Goode, and Wallace the shoe shine man. Cattlemen's Drive in on exchange, later a Bar-B-Q joint. The Rancher's Daughter and the Sugar Shack in Bixler's not exactly south though. Bob DEnnis and his Dennis donuts "The Big Swing is to Dennis Donuts." Cafeteria/cafe @ Downtown air park. Remembe the Sunset Club across the street from the air park, it was the Sunset club but previously in the 40's it was the Corn Crib. Shipman's cafe at reno and blackwelder and 10th and S. robinson. Balcony where the restrooms were at the Capitol Theater overlooking s. robinson. The Red Penny Bar is still here. Mickey's last chance saloon on Newcastle road. The Charter Club, Black Angus and Exchange Lounge not to forget the Tequila Club in Packin' Town. Webers Root beer on Penn just north of 10th, woops getting north again. The walk thru alley at the south end of TG&Y in reding shopping center. I could go on and on and on but your probably bored to death by now. Some of you might remember these places!!

Joe and Charlotte are now living in an assisted living center but in reasonably good health. Joe is quite the art collector and my mother is an artist so they stay in close contact. Actually Joe's mother and father started the original
Dodson's up in Capital Hill in the early 50's. I use to mow Joe's mothers lawn when I was in grade school...Am I old or what!! No reply to that necessary....
