    I always thought it was old bacon grease.

    If I understand correctly, he uses old bacon grease as a personal lubricant. Grady says that he's allergic to K-Y but I think he just likes the smell of bacon during "intimate moments". Also runs it through a strainer and puts it in old motor oil containers that he sells in the alley behind his joint.

    I remember going to the barber as a little kid and getting a crew cut and
    the barber slathering that on my head. I guess it helped the hair in the
    front stand up. It smelled good...but, dear God...you could lay bricks and
    hang wallpaper with that stuff! I probably still have an inch of that adhered
    to my scalp!

    I remember getting my afro touched up and having the barber spray enough Afro Sheen on make me run out of the shop for fresh air.

    I remember when my mother sat us down and specifically asked us to to that. We had no reason not to since we didn't realize we were being disrespectful. To this day, all of them are "uncle" and "aunt" to me.

    Exactly jerry,respect for our elders was something that was ingrained in us from the crib...today there's no crib.

    Same here, as well as, addressing adults as "sir" and "ma'am".

    I remember my mother grilling me after she observed me in church: You STAND when you shake a woman's hand. I learned later that one should stand when shaking the hand of anyone regardless of gender. Who is teaching the youth of today such pearls?

  13. #2813
    I was taught to stand in attention every time "Lift Every Voice And Sing" (the Negro National Anthem, as it was called) was played. Even my white teachers drilled it into us. The song is played every Sunday morning during Black History Month at my church. I work in the sound room with a couple other guys, one of whom is my age, and I'm the only one who stands when they sing it.

    Along with such old school teachings as-standing when a lady enters a room,tipping your hat...of course with the women's movement these things might be taken out of context which is sad..tip your hat a get hit with sexual harassment..ladies calm down!!

  15. #2815
    Man, I still take off my hat in elevators when there are ladies present. And walking down the street with a female, I always make sure I'm on the side of traffic. And I still call my elders "sir" and "ma'am". Not sure why things like manner and decorum have been forgotten in our society but it appears that they're gone forever.

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised about a generation that thinks it's kosher to walk around with your underwear showing and your pants barely hanging onto your knees.

    A few years ago, I went downtown for a niece's graduation and I saw a guy trying to walk across the street while holding his pants up just high enough to cover his knees. It was crazy. He was taking baby steps while everybody else was breezing past him.

    And I'll never forget when my cousin got married. He had two groomsmen light candles and one had to stretch up to get the highest one. When he did, the back of his tux raised up to reveal he was sagging! In a tuxedo! Jane, get me off this crazy thing.

    Finally, I once worked in a group home. There was a particularly rough kid named Mike who got a $300 clothing voucher so he could get enough nice things to wear to school since he brought next to nothing with him when he was sentenced to us. For some reason, he wanted me to take him to get the clothes. He grabbed $120 worth of things in spite of my telling him to blow the one-time voucher and get as much as he wanted. That was all he wanted though, so I respect it. Well, when we got to the register, he had a pair of size 32 jeans even though he had about a 28 waist.

    "Mike," says I. "Do you suppose these are big enough?"

    I should have kept my pie hole shut because he looked at them, told me "Good looking out," and replaced them with a pair that was size 36. So glad I was born 20 years before everything went nuts.

    JAI, back in the day when I was a kid, they would send the mesquito trucks through the neighborhood with thick, white billowing smoke coming out of them. All the kids would run into that thick fog of pesticide for fun!
