Growing up here, I've seen a lot of things come and go. Some were good. Some...well...not so much. But either way, they still made up what I've called home for almost 24 years. As I was thinking back on some of the different things that have gone away, I started making a list. This is it. Take a ride through some memories with me.

    Jitterbugs

    I didn't get the chance to pass through the legendary doors and onto the hardwood floors due to my age, but I still remember it, and the name it made for itself, not only in East Texas, but across the state.

    Toys R Us

    Ooooh...this one held lots of memories for me as a kid. It was THE place for games, toys, you name it. And...it's no longer a thing...

    Hastings

    I remember each of the different locations in Nac for this one. Yes, it became more about movie rentals, but I still categorize it as a bookstore.

    Waffle House

    Yes, indeed, this was one that is STILL severely missed...
