   Senior Moments
   Last issue, we asked you for “Sounds of Long Ago”. Here are some sounds that have faded
       in the past: Thanks to all who shared their memories!
   1. The sound of black coal shooting into coal bins in the basement.
   2. The rattle of the ragman’s cart and his cry of “Ra-a-gs. Any old rags. We buy old rags.”
                                                                                                             Bill and Catherine Mahaney, St. Thomas Apostle enjoy the fall landscape from the
   3. Gregorian Chants sung at High Mass.                                                                    bow of the Canandaigua Lady.
   4. The milkman’s ‘Yip, Yip” and the clip-pity-clop of horses’ hoofs on the pavement as she
       pulled the milkman’s wagon.
   5. Metal chains on tires clanking on the snow and ice packed roads.
   6. The sound of vacuum tubes in Sibley’s and Eastwood’s swooshing our money away and
       returning change.
   7. The Kodak Park work-whistle sounding at 8 am, noon and 5 pm.
   8. The cry of the huckster, peddling his produce on city streets- “Fresh corn. Apples Straw-              Yum!      ISM    travelers
       berries.”                                                                                             enjoyed lunch and award
   9. The newsboy hawking his papers early Sunday Morning – “Morn-ing Paa-per”                               winning grape pie at the
                                                                                                             Historic Naples Hotel.
