A Narrative History of Sears

Sears has opened the doors to its vast archival collection and invited the public to peek inside. More than 100 years of stories, product and brand histories, photographs, catalog images and more are now available online.

Who? Remembers Sears?

I mean! the original sears?

When I was a kid. I remember going to Sears in Cleveland, Ohio USA. Both Eastside & Westside locations in the inner city. YES! In the inner city! Before they moved to the suburbs.

It was a time when? Most of the products/items were (as I understand it to be!) overruns of National manufacturers and Sears bought them and put their name (on some of them) on it.

Sears was back then. What Walmart is today. A one stop, one shop store. Some exceptions. No drug/pharmacy department, no gas station/auto repair shop (as I recall).

Then somewhere between the 70’s & the 80’s! Sears went by way of: “if you can’t beat ’em!”  “join ’em!”.  In other words! Sears “sold out!”.

And now we are seeing an agonizing demise of an American institution. Changes in consumer tastes, convenience, styles, so on.

Not to mention! “GREED!”

K-mart is no better!

What if? We can go to “any” planet in the universe?

In the late 60’s.

there was talk about going to the moon and creating life there.another place to go (if not! getting away from what is going on down there aka earth!),

This could take much longer than expected. I think it’s because. We don’t really know! What is out there. This could cause problems. If we are not sure about “outer space” then we stand the risk of losing more than we want to gain. Knowing Vs. not knowing?

there is no such thing as a “sure thing” in this world or anywhere.

The last two space shuttles. That exploded. We still went up there. This is how we should be when exploring new worlds.

Columbus did!!!!!

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO BELIEVES IN THIS? PT.1 ?

The reason I put a “?” at the end is that. I may come up with other things.

 

I would like to start out! With what I believe in.

I know! There are guys out there who believe in being the “HEAD” of the relationship! Right from the very beginning. I do not! You may ask why?

I believe that! The woman does know more than perhaps! The man does. But! It also depends on? the upbringing, education, what she has learned as she was growing up.

I believe! In general, relationships. Are two-way street! Sorry guys!!!!!

I know! What my job is to her. Not only to love unconditionally, be there for her, support, honor, pay attention to her, talk to her and for her to talk to me, to uplift her, put a smile on her face, make her laugh, be there in all her ups, downs, and in-betweens, to give her a voice in my world and our relationship, and then some!

For the guys! It all depends on how men are brought up as well. To some guys! I think they encounter more crap then do some women.

There are parents who not understand or comprehend! What we (YES! I am talking about us men & women!) went through. As kids. We do not “carbon copy” onto our kids as well. This! Is just one part of why the world is the shape that it is in!

We as a human race fail to understand is? I would say? Almost from the beginning of time. Our first parents did not know the how to’s of raising kids. So they played it by ear, by the seat of the pants style. Keep in mind! Life and times were much less complicated than it is today.

I have always believed! When we have kids of our own. We should give them a better life than what we had!

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME? AND PREVENTED AN INCIDENT IN TIME?

I’m sure some will say? The assassination of JFK! Of course! What about the assassination Abe Lincoln? MLK?

The making of the H-bomb? The starting of wars? Conflicts?

The point I’m trying to make is? With what we know today. Would we be able to prevent it?

All the things that went on in the past. Were made by what was known in those life & times.

What if? /We could go back? And save the human race?

What point in time would you want to save? And why?

WHO IS YOUR? HERO, MENTOR, ADMIRE, FOLLOW?

We all have that someone who we like, love, learn, follow in our life. It does not matter! If it is someone who is either alive/deceased.

There is always something about that (special) person(s). YES! you can have more than one!

If it is someone from the past? Life & times were much simpler than Vs. today. But! Even way back then! there is still something to learn from them.

Even the ones who are not on our list. It’s their credibility as the person they were/are. That makes them significant/special/stand out.  What they said, did can and does make all the difference in the world. If they did not? We would not know or recall them.

Abe lincoln comes to mind! How he took on problems, issues of that time. More than likely! He knew. His decisions he made would not be popular or liked. But he knew they had to be made. And he did.

FDR! Is another one. YES! He started the Federal deficit. But given the times of the great depression. He too! Had to do what he had to do.

JFK! He was in the true sense! “COOL” in his decisions.

It’s been said that: “We need role models!”. No! Role models “FAIL!”. Because they are human too!

We do not see it! If we cann0t see “perfection” in ourselves? How can it exist? Simple! It does not!

Children! watch their parents more than the parents think they do!

Being a parent is much more of a serious job! then when out parents raised us!

WAY!!!!!! TOO!!!!!!!! MUCH!!!!!!! SHIT!!!!!! GOING!!!!!! ON!!!!! & DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS WHERE NARSSISUM MEETS COMPREHENSION! RESULTS? IDK????

After living with one! I have come to be! An “expert” in narcissism!

It all started when? She was a child. She wanted daddy’s attention. But then! Her youngest sister was born with CP.

All of mommy and daddy’s attention went to her sister with CP. She did not like that at all! So! She found that! The only way to getting daddy’s attention was? “Country music”  All!!!!!! She can! The artist, groups, songwriter(s), the label so on.

It was a moment in time! If nothing else. At least she did get her dad’s attention. Then! She got married. She even tried to get me to be just like her dad. Short lived at most.

Since she could not! The rest of the years were like? Being married to satan’s daughter!

As some of you who have read:”The life & times of a semi-Batchelor” You know what I went through. Those posts are gone.

Now! You know the “ROOT” of the problem!
