My Auntie Theresa worked the lunch counter at the University (Seattle) Woolworths for years - used to be a treat (& quite the outing packing up 6 kids !) for our folks to take us up there for lunch.

One of my Dad's occasional throwaway lines was, "I bought at the dime store and it was woolworth the money." :-)

The creaky wood floors and squeaking screen doors sure added a feel to those kinds of places. Jay keeps on taking us back there.

Thanks

Rich

Dick,
I gotta remember that, unfortunately most young folks today wouldn't get it!

I had two great aunts who ran a similar greasy spoon in San Jose, CA in the 1940's (a little before my time). They were pretty rough and ready gals, even later in their lives when I remember them. Neither had a "politically correct" bone in their body. I've heard some stories that by today's standards would have been a problem. Back then they just did and said what was needed, no frills.

Gotta love it!
