The flowers are very nice..thank you JVB….I only wish there was a way to stop the constant barrage of weekly circulars that end up all over our streets…the biggest culprit being the trade fair supermarket on Roosevelt ave

Hey Jimmy, whats holding up that plant? you hangin it on something??


I met Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey in there a long time ago. They were trying to order breakfast but the cook didn’t seem to hear them. Then I heard Pete say, “Tommy … Tommy can you hear me?”


Why hasn’t there been a report about the new Art Store? That place is amazing.

That’s great! Those flower baskets really make this neighborhood look beautiful. I wish Sunnyside Shines would install them outside the business district. That would make things even better.
