    Main Street project nearly done

    The old city dump site is up behind Dr.Doolittle's. A little south and east of his development. Access is off 219 on top of the hill between Hawbaker's complex and Dr. Doolittle's. Pretty sure it gated off, but the city may allow access if asked. I know some people who hunt on the property, but can't say they have asked for permission.

    Sauerkraut on Tuesday?

    It is claimed that the Pa Dutch brought sauerkraut to the US and contrary to Petee's way of making it in a matter of days they claim 6-8 weeks for the Pa Dutch kraut. Since I'm a consumer, not a creator, I have no knowledge of how long it takes, just how quickly it gets eaten.

    You got it Billy. Eagles Club upstairs, Rec Center bowling downstairs. Metropolitan Life was on the corner of East Long and North Stockdale. That building was owned by Cletus Heller back then. He stored a pretty nice collection of cars in the basement.

    Wish I could tell you, but I can't even remember the elk, with or without lights. Mr. D is pretty good at this memory stuff, maybe he will know.

    You are both young for your age. When we look at others of similar age and hardly recognize them as being our age it feels pretty good.

    My surprise was more from knowing many people 70+ who don't even know how to spell computer, let alone be active in a message forum. YMMV

    That was one of my first jobs. Always hated the guys who took delight in trying to chase me out of the pit. Setting two alleys was a hustle, there were several times where someone didn't show and you had to set all four. Needless to say you couldn't keep up and some of the bowlers were bitchin a blue streak. Fun times and fond memories.

    6 of 15 so far are over seventy. That's a little surprising.

    Vern Howey had a gas station there, but I don't know if there was something there between it and the UniMart.

    While we're tripping down memory lane I'm sure some here remember Little Times Square and the Twin Oaks south of town.

    I knew they were in the basement of the Gray building, but for some reason I thought there was another name for that restaurant at one time. I'm probably confused.

    Osmond's, on Dixon Ave where the firehouse is now, maybe?

    Before the Army Reserve Center moved over to Hillcrest the Hitching Post is the building they were in. Beside them there was some kind of a trampoline business where you paid to jump around. It was short lived and eventually became the McDonald's site. Then we had the original burger joint of fast food, Winky's. Where Goodwill is now there was a Goodyear tire and service center, Mike's Sunoco and the previously mentioned Colonial Restaurant. The Colonial was an old glazed block structure for years and was lost to a fire. Then rebuilt as its final look of a nice white sided structure.
