Thanks for getting back to me. Do you know if the Chuck Caldwell that is on here is the same Chuck Caldwell who ran the Pure Oil Gas Station at the corner of South Street and Harding Way East in Galion. My grandparents lived right behind the station on South Street. My dad grew up there. I was just curious. I went to the station a lot as a kid growing up and bought nickell candy bars and penny candy. We can't buy those things for that today. There was also a little family grocery store on South Street where we could go as kids and get 5 pieces of candy for a penny. It was called Steves Grocery. I don't know if anyone out there would remember that. I also remember the Halloween Parades we had down Harding Way East to the Galion Square. They started at the Fire and Police Station and they gave prizes for Best Costume etc.
I lost track of Steve Stokes, & Frank (the neighborhood feline), has adopted me. He still prefers the upstairs window as a door, & has taken over one of my favorite coats as his own. He also insists on a better diet than I can afford for myself. I've been away from research chores for a while, & can't find many of my pictures & other files. I've been plagued with a good memory, so I know what I had , & what I can't find bothers me. But, it's fun again & I'll slowly get back into the rhythm.
Nice picture! My life is controlled by a stray cat who likes to enter & exit through an upstairs window. He's really upset if the weather's bad & escorts me downstairs to the door: when he finds the weather's still the same, he blames me.
Carol... I'm sorry so long answering. I am just now figuring out this yet-another-new system of communication. I'm loving Port Isabel. We've had some lousy weather this last week, but today the sun is out and things are looking up. I hope you have a great Christmas!
