Picture of Nell's variety store brings back my childhood of when I went to town as a young child.

This was my version of Walmart in the early 70's!

Not a time goes by that when I see candy corn I think of those nickel bags of fresh candy while I looked at all the toy farm equipment and tractors I always put on my wish list.

Still love looking at the tractors and farm equipment today - on a bigger scale.

My wife says I'm still a kid at heart! Lol

Thanks for the memories. - Tim L. Baker
