The purpose of this website will continue to include the usual insanity, fear not, but we all need to pick up the pace here and see where it will lead. See, I just bought some new software and it's pretty durn powerful and I'm testing it out and will be using the Foster's Store site here as its first guinea pig. Any ideas about what you'd like on this site,....PLEASE!!!! let me know.

A subculture of the
times and of
West Georgia College
Some partied like there was no tomorrow
and for some,
there was no tomorrow
Semi-sociological deja vu
The surviving lab rats
Foster’s Store is about coming of age. It is as
much about wild parties and college life as it is
about a place in history where a generation
had it all, but at the same time, “all” turned out
to be so fragile and fleeting for so many. It
wasn’t just another generation discovering its
collective consciousness, but a “new “generation
fully equipped with new flavors of knowledge
and circumstances. We searched for or
stumbled into realities, which put the truths we
were fed and raised on by loving parents from
the Greatest Generation into question. Almost
every truth we’d ever known was now in doubt.
We were a generation raised on fear, taught to
dive under school desks to survive a nuclear
Armageddon and to trust in God if nothing else
worked. We grew up with it, we toed the
company line, but we didn't like the feeling. The
churches said it was OK to kill a commie for
Christ, but for some reason love ended up
feeling better to us than hate. Where did our
parents go wrong? Something had to give and
a lot of things did.
Birth control pills made the sexes equal. The
ways we got our kicks were constantly changing.
At some point out there at Foster’s store
there were more people back from a war than
would ever go. That had never happened
before. The luck of a draw could kill you or save
you. There were things that were inspiring to
some and downright dangerous to others.
Then,. some say it's all a bunch of nonsense.
This is a book of essays from a whole bunch
of people and the subject matter is from a
a long time ago. A team of investigative
reporters, let alone archaeologists, could not
certify the accuracy of events recounted in
much of this volume. What you have here are
our contributors best recollections, colored
by powerful emotions, of some of the best- and-
worst years of their lives. Therefore, Oak
Valley Press, Inc. disclaims responsibility for
any mishap that might befall any person or
institution as a consequence of these faded
memories being shocked into life by print.
While we are unaware that reading this
volume will produce dangerous side effects
down the road of time, we must warn our
readers of a spreading rumor that eating
certain pages of this tome will cause its masticators
to experience effects not unlike the
accounts described herein.
Crazy idea! However, we have warned you
and therefore deny liability to potential
eaters of this book for any debility should you
disregard our warning and eat the thing
anyway. In Fact, Bon Appetit!
