Finally have some time on this rainy day in April ( April showers do bring May flowers, right?) to read Frank's Streetwise column.
Two things--Omission of Bill's Delicatessen on West Portal--I still remember the red glazed tile entry, the huge sour smelling pickle barrel near the right hand front door and how my Mother, Mary spoke to Bill and his wife in German!
Tots and Teens was Tots TO Teens if my memory is accurate.
Waxing poetic about the norm for then makes me wish ( mostly) things were the same now in our world.
Thank you again ,Frank!
You are OUR gem!
