If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

We were there the day it opened. I don't remember the year, but I am pretty sure the date was Aug 6...my birthdate.

That rings a bell, but I don't remember where it was located. As in, what part of town.

I vaguely remember driving past in on the right hand side of the highway before the big Wal-mart area - past London Drugs.

Actually, the Rolling Stones was one of the more recent selections on the Athen's Pizza jukebox.
The song I remember, in the early 80's was......Tom Jones, Delilah!

When there were no houses on the east side of Kalamalka, & what was the name of that pub that the owner burned down on 30th. We used to gather in the foyer to the womens loo (twas the nicest spot in the pub).
We're lost but we're making good time.
