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.

Robert! Have you tried googling his name. You might also do ancestry.com. Tons of information on those sites. I have been doing my family's genealogy for several years and am back to 1648 and still working. My problem is that my German stinks. Those darn nuns were teaching us Latin annd the * * * at NE Catholic also. The two languages are not really compatible. Really gets tough on the old Church records were everything was written. I think my handwriting is terrible, until I run across a
Lutheran priest that was half literate. That is when my German really gets strained.

I have seen a couple of people asking about my Dads sister Judy Debarth back in the 2010 date area, I am trying to find out as much about my father as I can and not sure if this is a church or a school alumni page. My father was Robert Debarth and grew up on North 13th street in Philadelphia he passed away about 8 years ago in philly, any help would be great

We all remember the tram cars on the boardwalk singing its tune of "Watch the car, please"....the driver and the conductor who collected your 20 cents were all young ladies.....except.....one elderly gentleman, who would ride on the back of the last car.....he wore shoes that the top was cut off exposing his socks....he was the owner of the Tram cars.....anyone remember this guy....as sister would say, put on your thinking caps...

Speaking of food places! Do any of you remember the cannibal burger stand? It was about 23 and the boardwalk. I would never try one. It looked gross to me then and still in my memory it still feels the same way.
I also set pins in the bowling alley on the boardwalk. Also had a job setting bottles up so folks could try to knock them down. Ah, the good old days.
My parents had a double house up at 8th and Surf. Spent many summers down in North Wildwood. Would sit on the roof and watch the Hellcats flyby(during the war). Was quite exciting. We even saw a burning tanker one time. That is how close the Unterwasser boaten came. That's Uboat to you youngens. The fltsam would wash in from the sunken ships and we would pick through it. I got my first ballglove that way.
Well, enough of the maudlin thoughts for tonight! Weidershen!

Wow!!!! Do I have memories of W W? I was 12 when my Mom decided we were going to rent a place for the whole summer. I even got a job at the bowling alley setting up pins. The next summer my big brother Bill took the lifeguard test and spent that season as a W W lifeguard. 4 years later I found myself sitting the same stand(Spencer Ave.)that my brother sat. They're some of the greatest memories of my life & if I could do it over again I wouldn't change a thing.BTW. Carol & I bought a cottage down there a few years back & we use it all year long. I'm still connected with the Beach Patrol officiating at the annual boat races.

Dave, A few years ago I visited on line Mack's Pizza from Wildwood...there were pictures on the site from the good old days....pictured were people at the boardwalk counter waiting to buy and a good one of the menu and prices.....a slice was 20 cents and a whole pie was $2.60....so many memories of the woods.....when I would get home from the shore on Sunday nights my dad would say that he hoped I had a good time and what Mass did I go to!!!!...as long as you went to Mass all was good....did you have any favorite spots at the shore?

Dennis Logan & John Kahn: I used to make my scooter from an orange crate and a dismembered skate. It was a little taller. Not a sturdy as a milk carton. We had much fun zooming down Kerbaugh. Not as chancy as Lycoming.
Ah to be young again.
