Last week it was Spring Break for the kid so I took a day off and we loaded up his Grandmother Nana and off we went to Guthrie to visit the Oklahoma Frontier Drugstore Museum.
They had a soda fountain. All it needs is stocked and plumbed up and would be ready to go.
And it has all sorts of things with all sorts of colors.
It is built like an old timey pharmacy, kind of narrow and deep. That’s the kid down there. His grandfather, Heather’s dad, was a pharmacist. Charles is gone now but Nana had donated some items from their store to the museum and she wanted to go down and visit with the lady who runs it.
While they chatted I learned that maybe medical marijuana isn’t anything new. But Cocaine??!!
I’m old enough that I remember some of these things. Those old school syringes were brutal.
These signs are before my time, thankfully.
Hey look what I found? I wondered where politicians got their beliefs. You know what I think? Well I’m going to tell you anyway smartypants: They all use the same bottle. That’s what I think. Tell me I’m wrong, go ahead.
And look at this Superb Manhood for a dollar a box. Well give me a case is what I say.
The museum has an apothecary garden next door. We went out there. On the wall behind us is a plaque remembering Charles. He was a great guy. He’s been gone some years now but we’ll never forget him. He was Logan’s best friend and fishing buddy and a great guy.
