*A Supertest service station was located on the site where Mr. Sub is presently located on the South-East corner of Kent & Rideout Streets.
*As young folks we would pick up a daisy (or any flower with many petals) and, plucking the petals out one at a time, repeat the following lines: "He (She) loves me, He loves me not, he loves me, and he loves me not" until all petals were pulled away. The last petal gave us the answer to our query.
*A farmer entered Jake Houzer's Men's Wear store located on the S-W corner of Kent & Lindsay Sts. intending on getting fitted for a suit.
As Jake was measuring his customer he passed the remark that the man was a wee bit "stooped." The man, being hard of hearing, though he said "stupid" and quickly turning said "you're not so damn smart yourself" and stormed out of the store!
Jake's potential customer never entered the store again.
*Doctors highly recommended Cream Porter as a tonic.
I asked about its' whereabouts at the local Beer Store and was given a puzzled look and asked "what's that?"
