Good work Mike. And while I'm on I just want to extend a hope for a blessed Thanksgiving Day to all the SSS gang.
I still miss the North vs. Frankford game.

Bad news - I had to move the entire web site to a new hosting company as the old one suddenly went out of business.
Good news - I moved everything and the new hosting company has no issues with the photo album software that I was using, so PICTURES ARE BACK!
Happy Thanksgiving.

The mention of Temple Hospital brings back memories. I was walking distance from it. It was our 'family' hospital - our G.P. was there (today the term is family medicine), any hospitalizations we had were there. Also it seems everyone in the neighborhood either worked there at one time, full or part-time or volunteered. It is incredible when you see how it has really spread out.

Everyone on this site seems to remember Charlie's for pizza. Here is a place I need help with. I always used to walk up Rising Sun Ave as a short cut to the Century movie since it took you onto Erie Ave. On the way, a few blocks after Old York Road there was something that did not seem to belong there. It looked like an Italian Trattoria (sorry if redundant), it had outdoor stone tables and seats. Friends that I walked with said it was a restaurant but no one knew anyone who had actually eaten there. The surrounding area was heavily urban, this place looked completely rural. It would be like finding a palm tree in Alaska. Someone besides me must know about this. Help, if you remember. Was it a restaurant and who ate there?

Wishing everyone a happy, safe Thanksgiving.

Last Saturday I drove to Newton, N.J. to attend a concert presented by the New Sussex Symphony. Joe Kulick, who graduated from Saint Stephen's in 1950, is a '* * * in the orchestra. I learned of Joe (the older brother of my classmate Sandra Kulick) in March, 2013, during an exchange in this guest book about musical ambitions. John O'Brien was in on this exchange, too. Joe wrote about learning to play the 'cello at North Catholic. When he graduated from North he stopped playing the instrument only to pick it up fifty years later after his retirement. After a few years of lessons and practice he was invited to join the New Sussex Symphony. I was so impressed with his accomplishment that I drove to Newton in November, 2013, to attend a concert there and meet Joe. Unfortunately, because of a medical problem, Joe was unable to play in that concert, but I did meet him and we chatted for a while. I received an e-mail from him last month letting me know the date for the first concert of this season. The good news is that he's back in the 'cello section of the orchestra, still dealing with some medical problems, but he's performing. Good on ya, Joe!

The mention of Temple Hospital jogged something in my noggin. I remembered that I had my tonsils removed at Temple 73 years ago. Long time ago. Guess I should just be happy that I'm still around to remember it. ;)

Yes, I was in there for a visit to Temple Hospital recently. Incredible how different the neighborhood looks. A sad commentary on the people to be sure.

I had the pleasure to be in the old neighborhood on Tuesday.....I was at the Veterans Affairs building at Wissahickon and Manheim Sts. to be exact....I decided that since I walked these streets with friends I wanted to see it again.....so on my drive home to Doylestown I drove up and down some streets.....nothing has changed, the folks were outside sweeping their sidewalk, kids playing cowboys and Indians, girl's jumping rope, people going to the polls to vote, boys delivering the Evening Bulletin......It just broke my heart to see what a great neighborhood has become....P.S.....I was going to stop at the White Tower at Broad & Erie but it was not there.

Good Morning All, Election day is two weeks away....as a Veteran I just want to remind everyone to do your civic duty that we all learned from the good sisters at SSS...This election is very important for the future of our nation....please take the time to vote....now who remembers Sister Helen Catherine aka Happy Helen, being driven around to the corners that had safety's posted on them????...she did this twice a year, May and November...I remember the time I was having a catch with another safety when sister pulled up...we were tossing to each other our safety belts that were in a bag....the only thing that saved me was the fact my uncle John Logan was driving sister....whew...

Bob DeBarth. I met your Dad on 24 Jan 1962. That date is imprinted in my mind because we both joined the army on that day. I had seen him around the neighborhood mostly playing ball in Hunting Park but never really spoke to him. We talked during the long train ride to South Carolina.After basic training he was assigned to his next duty station.I cant remember where that was.I knew about his death and I attended his funeral.Your Dad was a pretty good guy. I have a picture of him from our Army days at Fort Jackson.
