Remember when:

*Morticians used to place a crepe on the door of a home to indicated a deceased member of the family was at rest in the home.

*One of the more important jobs on a newspaper is that of the proofreader. Back in the days when I was employed by the Watchman-Warder, I would catch the mild, but stern tongue of the late Ford Moynes if I overlooked errors.

*Jim Healey was about to cross William St. at Kent. The driver of the car went about half a car length over the "stop" line. He looked at the driver, and whirling his cane in the air hollered "yes, every one of you drivers are the same, you want the whole damn road and the sidewalk too!" The driver wisely ignored him.

*An opponent would ask the question "Are we playing for fun, money or marbles?" before staring a game.

*Folks used to say that if the good Lord intended us to smoke He would have had a chimney coming out of the top of our head.

*National Grocers was located on Cambridge St. across from the Fire Hall. It was managed by Duncan Sinclair.
