Who remembers when there was a "head shop" on the corner of 25th and Brown (across from Ellis' drug store)...They used to sell posters, rolling papers and were run by some hippies...It didn;t last long but I remember buying a pot leaf patch for my 'dungaree jacket' and getting in trouble by my mom

Matha's ice cream cones ... also known as how to balance a 1/2 gallon of ice cream on a cone. Her cones were huge, I don't know how she made any money selling ice cream.

Remember DeLuca's butcher shop with the sawdust on the floor and the baskets of candy at the front counter??
