Vaguely resembling a very large, steel Frisbee. Clyde lived but was changed. Back then the inmates at the jail gardened, producing most if not all their veggies, tomatoes and the like while under armed guard of course.
    True story except it was Kenny Legiere not Clyde York.

    Sorry, my family knew Clyde and his wife and this is how I remember hearing it but I stand corrected, thank you.

    Johnny Hagan who owned the Kingsway was a very close friend of the family and at least one of my Uncles was there when it happened.

    I was not being solicitous, the onus was on me to explain from whence came my error.
    In any event to that time it was the very most exciting thing I can recall. After that was the underpass, at least to me. It meant to a young country boy our city was getting larger.

    Oh jeeezzzz......that really makes me all warm and fuzy inside!

    As for Burger King....auction this week if anyone is interested in any of the stuff that's left behind. Amazingly it's quite clean compared to some places that have closed and sold off the leftovers.

    Thanks LadyWolf! You-know-who (^^^^^) left the door open when he came back, who knows what other riff-raff (other than me I mean) might wander in!

    Freq....might still be one, prob didn't take pics of everything. You could start up a business, making shakes.....well maybe in the summertime anyway.
