I mentioned it over 2 weeks ago as most of my friends on BPT PD were made aware for obvious reasons. Yes most items there are not as good as back when Lorrianne (now deceased)owned it as well as the car wash in back. Yahoo and Richy former wokers when I when I was a kid now own it..the lady used to make those great oinion rings retired..onion rings aren't so great anymore..Dutchess & Windmill hotdogs are now better than MC...Food channel came out years too late it seems. MC is not as good as years ago..not even close!

I am doing just fine, and I hope that all of you are doing just fine, too. Have you notice that most of my great interesting comments have nuts, and sometimes Mean Faces? Do I care? No. Am I a Cry Baby? No. Give nuts and mean faces, and you will receive the same. Go in Peace and Praise the LORD, Amen.

Tomlinson's used to have really good dogs and steak sandwiches too. Ever since they expanded into that bigger spot, the food quality went down the crapper. Still good. Nowhere near as good as it used to be. And damnit I miss Crikets(sp?) in Stratford!

Phyllis, do you know why Cricket's closed? I mean, that place was always jammed packed. We would go on Saturday afternoons for the hot dogs & fries, then head down to Short Beach.

Avco closed.Charter arms closed.Not enough pass thru traffic to cover overhead. But if we are bringing stuff back how about Ahern's with the kiddie rides and the trampolines?

Yes.Avco's closing really wrecked now defunct Lia's Roses and surrounding biz. I fondly remember Aherns also Snuffy's. But I was told Cricket closed do to a commercial project that never got off the ground..what a shame tore it down for nothing..my office is just down the street

CT Sam and I went metal detecting at the park today. I found many silver coins. CT Sam only found one bottle cap, it was stuck to the bottom of his shoe.
