1. I thought I was the only one who knew about Boontling

'Burlapping' is my favorite Boontlism.

6. It's not really a place to go to, rather...

it's a fine place to stop on your way to someplace better. The Horn of Zeece restaurant isn't half bad for a greasy spoon.

7. Funny. I remember working work the young teens (around 16, 17 and 18 sometimes alittle

 

older. They would get on the subject of guys. Talking back and forth. I would tease them and tell them if they went out with a guy tonite don't cha cha around any beds. They would laugh. Also I would tell them if you are going to dance and something happens remember you'll both have to pay the fedler. They knew what I meant. Those were the good old days.
