I asked my dad if we could stop to get some fireworks and he told me, " There's no fireworks there boy, just hippies."
Yes they do but they're not that huge here. We're about five miles from, the Arkansas border so there is decidedly the southern, Southern Baptist and Evangelical influence. As a Mackerel Snapper I find it most interesting.

They all had their own shows back in those days but variety shows would soon disappear like the westerns did. Now all we have are FBI and reality shows.

I never watch the national news and only watch the headlines and weather on the local news.
I'd much rather watch these guys:
