No More Lum 'n Abner

I lost my youth when the radio died. No more Lum 'n Abner, sponsored by Frigidaire. I miss the static. Where have all the furrows gone, when planting potatoes? Now just a wrinkle in memories, buried in rows. 

Where has the sawmill gone that cut the lumber? Now but a gate with peeling paint and a rusted hinge. But I remember Tom Sawyer. No more milk in glass bottles. 

Where are the strings of Howdy Doody? What happened to hubcaps and innertubes? Now the family bible gathers dust, but I sill hear granny sing "Rock of Ages" as she snaps green beans. I lost my youth when the radio died. 

"How I miss granny's apple pie."
