This CC site is DEAD. You won't be able to find anyone to answer your post much less an "ol timer" that remembers any of those things that you mentioned. You are much better off going on Facebook and getting on "We grew up in Corpus Christi". You will have a blast, I guarantee you.

You live in Mission V? I used to live in Mission V for about a year and a half near Oso Pkwy & Felipe. If you can remember something from the 70s or 80s, I'll be delighted to play memory lane with you.

Do you remember when Betty Ford came to the Mall and was totally blitzed out her mind?
