News and Comments from People That Matter
you wonder why the other web site turned bad its like they say most people in astralia are descendants of criminals sent there instead of prison, the whole town of ulysses screwed over the people who they owed money to by moving the whole town. If you are proud of that you need to get your head on straight
I did not say I was proud of anything. I simply put up a web site about old Ulysses. You sure pick the negative out of everything.
Pretty good sight all and all.
My few memories were told to me of an old store moved into new Ulysses where Trendsetters is now. Charlie Binney owned his own little grocery store and if some of the very young kids walked by going home from school, he had them come in and he'd cook a hamburger for them. Plus he was so stubborn he wouldn't fix his store, had dirt floors? what was told. I do have a tad of a memorie of what they called the black blizzards where you wake up in the a.m. thinking it was still night because the dirt storm was pitch black and had wet rags over your nose to breathe. This had to be in the 50's and there are pic's of where Trendsetters and that park across the street was a restaurant and the whole street was walls of tumbleweeds because of the dirt and winds. My Grandparents told me a lot of their memories. I remember in town she had a whole lot she planted as a garden, she canned the food, had her chickens she would catch, put their head under a hoe and pull the head off, yuk. Makes you wonder if we might experience what our great, great grandparents went through during the depression, dirty thirties and then the dirt in the 50's. Kind of scary to think about esp with our economy, and if irrigation gas gets so hight the farmers couldn't afford to irrigate, we could experience that dirt we learned about in our hystory books. joy
we will never have those big dust storms again
Don't count on it. If irrigation gas prices get too high and the water reserve disappears, their won't be irrigation. Winds still blow, and the dirt won't have irrigation water to keep it from blowing. I don't count on anything anymore. There were bad dirt storms in the late 70's and early 80's, just not as bad.
Thanks for the web site of the history of our town. Very interesting. AND they had a better main street than we do now. The big bldg. that is now the museum housed a friend of mine where he grew up with all his brothers and sisters. I never would have thought that the old Uly. would have around 2000 people way back then. Thanks again, and everyone needs to check it out. joy
