Ah. Yes, I have heard about that. Apparently one of the farms close to town spread a whole batch of rotten compost on their fields. It is pretty bad.

Enderby. There was ad eparment stroe, maybe Woolworths? at the end of Cliff Ave, right by the bridge. I think it is a Bargain Shop now? In the summer the front window would be full of beach toys, air mattress, beach balls etc.
Funny, that is what I remember?
Burger Baron on the corner of Cliff and Hyw 97. This was circa 1989.
I always liked going to Enderby. Far enough from home yet close enough to not be far from home. I grew up in Vernon.

The owners son played in MLB http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Reimer
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Yes that is the one.
I assumed it was Woolworths but I figured I was 100% wrong.
I just remember seeing the front window full of summer beach toys when I was little.
And you know what? I am almost 40 and I still have never set foot in that place!
