- cannot remember how many times Kay made me go to class, still do not know how she knew. Clear as a bell I can see her cigarette hanging out of her mouth those long nails and that dirty old rag she cleaned the tables with. Great memories still.
- Stopped in there for penny candies on the way home from swimming at the indoor pool.
- Got the best steak in the world from there. Always remembered the cat curled up on the potatoes. Wonderful!

- Ina Godda Da Vida.
- Doesn’t someone live there now ? Converted the whole store front into their home?
- I believe it's been turned into apartments..
- Yeah, that’s it. I always thought that looked like the oddest thing to do with the place.
