That's right. Edith and Archie were the two main characters on All in the Family.

Yes, it's the one, where Edith would play the piano and they would both sing it (more like a screech on Edith's part). It mentions Edgar Hoover and so on, but I can't remember all the words. Did you say if it was your photo on that canoe fishing?

Wasn't that the one that Archie and Edith played and sang together ?

The Watkins man used to come to my hometown also. In the 1920s or 30s (can't remember the date my mother gave me), a sniper hiding in a ditch shot and killed him. The Watkins man was not from our town, so I don't know who would do this. It has remained a mystery. Yes, it was a very quiet and simple life...forever gone. I'm also glad I lived during those times. Those were the days my friend, we thought would never end...remember that song?

When I was a little kid I spent a lot of summers on my grandparents' farm in rural East Texas, and at least once a week a truck like this would come by..mostly staples like sugar, salt, coffee, flour...also, every couple of weeks the Watkins man would come by..a smaller truck, and he sold vanilla extract, various salves and nostrums, thread, needles and pins, etc..it was a very quiet and simple world, and I've always felt very fortunate that I was able to experience it ...
