I can sit and remember the one block main street of Tuckerman and the businesses on either side of the street. Parking was an issue back in the early 70's. Doing a u-turn at the end of the one block was required to park on the opposite side to get your mail from the post office. There was the Drug Store, the Tuckerman Mercantile, Paul D's grocery store, Mom had her beauty shop, Armstrong's. I can't remember the rest of the businesses nor can I remember if these were all in business at the same time. Everyone remembers Gene Elkins, the Shingle Shack and Marie's Dairiette. Daddy had a restaurant at the North end of town at one time. Spent many a morning there opening with Daddy before going to school.
The 70's were some good years, but, some tough times. Mom left, parents got a divorce, both parents remarried. Lots to be grateful for throughout my life. The 70's were probably one of the worst periods. It is not a time that I have spent a lot of time reflecting on, so, reminiscing with other Tuckermanians is therapeutic at this point in my life and I am enjoying the experience. Lookng at that point of my life in a different perspective
