I Miss...
October3, 2012 | Doc Savage

Posted on 10/03/2012 1:02:17 PM PDT by Doc Savage

The other day I heard the voices of Ozzie and Harriet on the radio , and I suddenly realized how much I missed them. I also miss Don Knotts, and Paul Lynde, and 'Horshack' and 'Fred Mertz'. I miss 'Buck Rogers' and 'Ming the Merciless' and crisp, clear autumn Saturdays at my college football games. Guess I could go on forever. Just wondered what you guys missed?

I don’t miss any of them. I look forward to them on WNAR online streaming of old radio shows 24/7.

Going fishing with my Daddy.

Going out to the farm and climbing in the hay loft.

Playing Cowboys & Indians in the woods.

Being a young teenager sitting in Riverfront Stadium watching the Reds battle the hated Dodgers. Woody Hayes. Mariemont Junior High School. Drinking Little Kings with my buds. Cincinnati Stingers hockey. The Commodores. Monday Night Baseball on NBC with Tony Kubek and Joe Garagiola. Kiss concerts. High school dances. And sooooo much more.

Playing in the cemetery, on the railroad tracks and gravel pit.

My “friends” on Fakebook miss some mediocre stupid rock groups from the 60s and 70s, and while I often post links to some great new stuff on Youtube, Americana mostly, they seldom if ever press LIKE. I tell ya, I don’t miss nostalgia at all. It sucks, it leads us to early death!

I miss Coke in a bottle straight from the machine, cold your hand, condensation dripping down the side. I miss riding my bike till the sun set, not worrying about some psycho living around the corner.

I miss Saturday Morning cartoons. When it was special to wake up early and watch them. Not wall-to-wall 24 hour cartoons with majority of them being crap and PC.

I miss old records on a phonograph, the crackle and pops. I miss long summers when I was kid. Sure seem short nowadays.

I miss not worrying about a whole lot of things, that mom and dad (though as low income as they were) provided for us and took care of us, being honest-to-goodness real parents.

I miss my young brother when he was fun and lively and not the depressed, drugged-up Ron Paul-supporting atheist he is today...

Okay, getting personal there, but that’s what I miss.

I miss Rod Serling waving his cigarette about as he explained the latest way that we were about to enter The Twillight Zone. I miss Alfred Hitchcock walking into a side shot of his rotund outline at the beginning of his show & talking like he had a mouthful of marbles. Captain Kangaroo, Mister Green Jeans, Ed Sullivan, & most of all, Red Skelton (God bless him).

Growing up in the 1980’s, I miss Ronald Reagan, being able to sit down and watch a sitcom without every other character being a flaming homosexual, sometimes I even miss NOT having computers, email, the internet, smart phones, etc. You could actually tune out politics and the rest of the world for the hours of the day you weren’t reading the morning paper or watching the evening news.

Getting up early and walking for 45 minutes to my favorite fishing spot and fishing all day. Getting home just before dark to a home cooked meal and realizing I’m starving because I was in too big a hurry to make a sandwich.

Tomorrow, dinner would be the stringer full of 6-10” trout I caught.

Oh to be 11 or 12 again!

I miss the dinosaurs.

In all seriousness though, I'm a child of the 90's and yet I find myself missing things I wasn't even alive for.

The times when America was a cleaner, farm-ier, more upstanding, moral, safe, patriotic place. When people enjoyed small, simple things. When people didn't have or need gadgets and TV's and laptops and facebook to keep themselves entertained. When cowboys were in the movies. When people dressed classier, behaved classier, and cherished time with family. I guess I should have been born in the 30's.

I miss the days of air travel pre 9/11, when we could walk into the terminal and right onto the plane in the last few minutes before departure. I miss the days when my sister was late boarding, and they held the plane for her. I miss the days when because of an airline strike, those who were forced to fly another airline were treated to champagne, along with everyone else.

I miss the days when driving without a seatbelt wasn't illegal.

At a bar down in Dallas

An old man chimed in

And I thought he

Was out of his head

Just being a young man

I just laughed it off

When I heard what

That old man had said

He said, I'll never again

Turn the young ladies heads

Or go running off into the wind

I'm three quarters home

From the start to the end

And I wish I was eighteen again

I wish I was eighteen again

And going where I've never been

But old folks and old oaks

Standing tall just pretend

I wish I was eighteen again

Now time turns the pages

And, oh, life goes so fast

The years turn the

Black hair all grey

I talked to some young folks

Hey, they don't understand

The words this old man's got to say

I wish I was eighteen again

And going where I've never been

But old folks and old oaks

Standing tall just pretend

I wish I was eighteen again

A girl phoned me the other day and said... ‘Come on over, there’s nobody home.’ I went over. Nobody was home.

I haven’t spoken to my wife in years. I didn’t want to interrupt her.

I drink too much. The last time I gave a urine sample it had an olive in it.

My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you’re ugly too.

“More.Playing in the cemetery, on the railroad tracks and gravel pit.”

As a six year old growing up in NYC, a bunch of us would rush to construction sites after school and build sand castles as tall as we were. We had to run down subway stairs and up them on the other side. No fears. After an hour, one of our mothers would appear and sometimes help us build.

Song: I Love
Artist: Tom T Hall
Album: Ultimate Collection

I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks, slow-moving trains, and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams, sunday school in may,
And hay
And i love you too

I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends, birds in the world, and squirrels
I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups, bourbon in a glass, and grass and i love you too

I love honest open smiles, kisses from a child, tomatoes on the vine, and onions
I love winners when they cry, losers when they try, music when it’s good, and life
And i love you too

Fall bird hunting in the north woods of Michigan with my dad and brothers. Especially with my dad. I miss all the things I got to do with him. He passed in 2007 but those memories will remain with me until the day I die.
