well being I'm a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan and year after year so frustrated, would love to shove a pie in Jerry Jones face

I know that is kind of off the wall person BUT I'm THAT frustrated lol 1995 was the last Superbowl they played in, Tom Brady himself has been to 10 since then, He was 18 years old last time Dallas won a superbowl, he had time to go to 4 years at Michigan and play 21 seasons and Dallas STILL hasn't been back in that time frame, soooooo having said that Jerry needs several pies shoved in his face lolol
Thats a different pick, but sound reasoning. It made me laugh out loud, very funny. Thanks.

No on account of I don't like to waste food. I wouldn't want to do that. I might want a slice of the pie though, depending on what kind it was. I like berry pies. A boysenberry or maybe a blackberry and raspberry combo pie would be nice. If I had a slice, I'd want to put a scoop or three of breyer's natural vanilla on top. I'd better take that pie and ice cream to a secluded location as it might be hard to enjoy it between wiping who-knows-what-kind-of-pie off my kisser.
When are you coming back down to my neck of the woods, I have a pie waiting for you.

I've been delayed a year or two on account of the Covid. Hopefully in 2022 but if the great reset timeline is true, I'll probably be detained in a camp somewhere, and I doubt they'll be serving pie. Would you mind chasing the pie with some Breyer's Natural Vanilla ice cream? Thanks!

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
The dairy delivered milk to our door a few times each week. Ours arrived in quart bottles. They'd pick up the old bottles when they brought the fresh milk. I think our price for the milk was 11 cents a quart. I've often wondered, if a business could profitably operate that way decades ago, why can't they today?

The gallon bottles came from the store.
As you said, the delivered ones were quarts.
Wonder whatever happened to the old insulated dairy box?

The townie talk page I belong to on Facebook had a nostalgic thread about a popular candy store in the 60's and 70's that had a huge response. So many fond memories of going there with a few coins and getting a bag of the treats like you mentioned.

Just keep posting, Lovin Jesus. Don't fret if there are reactions to the content questioning the efficacy of the content. It's good to be informed and various opinions on a topic is healthy.

As for Dots, back when I ate candy I enjoyed them from time to time, but I've had to cut candy out of my diet in order to stay quasi-healthy.
I love Dots, but haven’t had them in years! Now I want a box... :lol

Beeman's gum (tasted like weird licorice), Blackjack gum (tasted like good licorice), Teaberry gum (tasted like wintergreen, blechhh) and Thrills (which tasted like soap). And what about Bazooka gum? Necco wafers? Nehi soda?

Btw, a lot of the candy and drinks we remember from our childhood can be found at Cracker Barrel.

I used to save up the Bazooka comics and send them in for the junk they offered. In a thread here I indicated that I took the money from glass bottles that I'd bring in for cash decades ago and purchase orange or grape crush with it. But I think it was Nehi. Whatever it was there would be a little fruit residue at the bottom of the bottle.

I remember saving the comic wrappers for Bazooka and sending them in with 50 cents or so to get the silliest things, like trick hand buzzers. That was a time too when you could send away for other stuff too. Like sea monkeys.
