Thanks, John, and the same to you and everyone else who continues to read the guest book. Was just wondering, does the term "new Easter outfit" mean anything any longer? Getting new outfits for my brothers and me was our mother's raison d'etre for the week or two before Easter.

Hello Jim King. That "Roman numerals" quote is a total hoot. Having wondered why movie-makers used the Roman figures in the credits, I decided that they were trying to class up their product. I've actually avoided buying any new Roman-numeral faced wall clock for the shore house because the younger visitors probably can't read the numbers.
Also: XVIIIth of April "The British are coming, the British are coming!" Keep riding Paul Revere!

Nuns smoking? I refuse to believe it. Although I did notice a slight resemblance between Mrs Krobopel in the Simpsons (r.i.p. Edna) and Happy Helen, especially when she sat out on the steps during recess with a cig dangling out of her mouth.

"Now children pay attention to these Roman Numerals, otherwise you won't be able to tell the copyright date of certain films."

Obie ! Thanks for the info about Jack Wood. I did not know of his passing. He truly was a great guy.
Talk about senior moments- - I wrote that I spent 36 years at Ladder 18!!!!! Wrong. 38 years was the correct #
And if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. Your brother & I made a great choice for our careers.

To Joe Putro; Talking to my brother, Jim, the other day, RE our recent exchanges, He reminded me of someone who lived up your end of the block, a Max Guczinski who was actually in my class. I thought Max lived on the 1600 block, but my brother assured me it was, indeed, 1700. Another senior moment, I guess!. Regards, OBIE

To Bob Gavin; When you mentioned Jack Wood, it came back to me. He was the oldest brother, followed by Don, who spent a lot of years in the Navy, followed by Chet, Joey and Patricia. My brother, Jim, told me a story that Jack Wood once told him that the best job he ever had was as an usher at the Towne. Jack, sadly, passed away several years ago. Stay well, OBIE

Obie! The older Wood brother was Jack.He lives (or lived) in Nicetown behind my fire station on H.P. Ave.
He was walking by one day and I was sitting outside. I told him I remembered him tossing me out of the TOWNE movie one Saturday (he was the usher) because I was squirting a water gun at other kids. We remained good friends during my whole 36 years at that station.
He lived on either Yelland or Ruffner St.
