C.S. SMITH SPORTING GOODS

Smith's Sporting Goods was a great place to go as a kid. You didn't need much money to buy a gag gift or shotgun shells.




Bickell's
BICKELL'S STATIONERY STORE

   Not a good place to take your date, but we nerd types loved to browse the aisles.



 SULFUR BATHS

Paso Robles was famous for the 'healing' hot springs in the area. Here is the bath house downtown at 11th and Pine Street.

 


Is This Dave Rowe's Old Woody?
PASO ROBLES INN

With a long history of beauty, service and great food, the Paso Robles Inn is just one of the city's wonderful landmarks.

"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
- Cherokee Proverb -

"Never miss a good chance to shut up."
- Texas Bix Bender -

"The government of the United States, under Lyndon Johnson, proposes to concern itself over the quality of American life. And this is something very new in the political theory of free nations.  The quality of life has heretofore depended on the quality of human beings who gave tone to that life, and they were its priests and its poets, not its bureaucrats."
- William F. Buckley, Jr. -

"Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy."
- Winston Churchill -

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
– President John Adams -
1789

"Progress has brought us both unbounded opportunities and unbridled difficulties. Thus, the measure of our civilization will not be that we have done much, but what we have done with that much. I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism. The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian charity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us."
- Theodore Roosevelt -

"To silence criticism is to silence freedom."
- Sidney Hook, 1951 -

 Poet Lariat

Ain't there a poet lariat around?
Someone to put this ol' horse town
Right on the map where it oughta be,
So all them city-slickered dudes can see
We're just as dad-blamed 
cultured . . . Yesiree!
