Subject:    Booger Town

Jim Johnson

As a proud resident of Booger Town (#10 Anderson Street, a.k.a. Green Row) as an infant, it is my understanding that it began near the intersection of 9th Street and 9th Avenue (near  Triana Boulevard) and continued to a point near present-day Valley Garden(?) or 12th Street, possibly sharing a border with Bob Wallace Avenue on the south end.  It was primarily shanty homes and inhabited by "poor folks".

On Mondays, most residents did their laundry and put it on clotheslines to dry.  This coined the common reference to every Monday as "wash day in Booger Town" by older area residents familiar with the routine.

There was a series of photos taken in the area available in the Huntsville-Madison County Library at one time.  You may wish to check there.

Just this week I heard a term on an old movie. that my daddy used to say to me a lot. He would say "see you in the funny papers" instead of saying goodbye. He also would read me the "red funnies," which was the comics in the Sunday paper, when I was a little girl.

Funny how an expression or term can bring on a flood of memories.

I had to smile at your article on the fading words of our day was great!! Words like "peel out" are gone forever.

Regarding Mullins, it sounds like a great investment for Bucky Hoffmeyer and his Monday breakfast crew. I can see Marion Humphrey, Marin Lee, Ken Martz and the rest working diligently in the kitchen .......until someone brings up college football and the food fight  gets LAUNCHED!!

I also remember "Good night, sleep tight...don't let the bedbugs bite" which was what my mom said to me at night. And how about "See you later alligator ... after while crocodile?"

TT  -  Saw your comment about escaping the cold weather – I am escaping early this afternoon myself – but I am heading down to Newport Beach to get away from this 83 degrees and walk in the sand and feel a cool 75 degree wind coming off the ocean. By the way – any updates on the 64 class reunion this year ?
