Default DAMMIT!

Just saw this on the news, my family'* favorite resaurant burned down.
We eat there every Saturday with my Great Aunt Virginia. It'* the social center for the area.
They had a great collection of antiques, old signs and advertisements, a pedal car from the sixties, old hand-cranked kitchen stuff, three OLD jukeboxes full of45s from the Fifties and Sixties, old general-store shelves for their candies, their display counter for their home-made fudge was from the late Forties.
They had a bunch of old tin wind-up toys, and pull-toys, old Coke and Pepsi signs, and signs for other soda companies that are long-gone. They had the remains of a Mother'* Oats ad that featured the Dionne quintuplets!
The Americana that went up with the restaurant would make a museum curator cry.
They'd been collecting the stuff for DECADES, and it all went up because of a faulty compressor on the fridge in the basement.
There are 35 people out of work here now, and I don't know if the restaurant had insurance, but if they did, it won't cover the worth of the antiques. I don't know yet if they plan on rebuilding, but if they do, I think they'll have a lot of stuff coming from the community.

That is a B****!!!!!!! Iknow what you mean about restaurants.....

My fave was Chi-Chi'*(a Mexican restaurant) and it closed down the next morning after my EX and myself had been there the night before.
They had the best Margaritas.......
The flavor of the month was Blckberry and I missed out on mine because I was on an antibiotic for TB exposure and couldn't drink. NOT even a D**N beer!!!!!!
