The BAD Crowd in Springfield, TN from 1976-1983 - The GOOD years; The PARTY years! Sulphur Fork Creek, Hills Mill, Flat Rock, the Covered Bridge, Branding Iron (Paul, who memorized customers' food orders), Baldwin's Barbecue, Springfield Skating Rink, Hinkle Chair Company, Blackpatch Rd, Cutting & Hanging tobacco, OLD Springfield High School on West Main. Kinney's Road, town square, Springfiled movie theater, SouthPaw at the Armory, NewTown, Gaws, Flewellyn (Washington Rd), Coopertown, 49 Market, South Main. This is the Springfield I remember; the SouthTown I remember. These were the times we could walk across anyone's property, through the woods and the streams and the fields, and NOT get shot at! There were no Gangs, no guns and knives (nobody could PROVE it!); just companionship, commiseration, friendship, bonding. We looked out for each other. We had our differences, and we got over them. We fought, we argued, we loved, we laughed and cried. We lost a few along the way. This is my ode to the SouthTown crowd of 1976 to 1983. May this find you well. Love, Jeff Mason.
