Michael, if they did that at Chewy's house they would burn the porch down. I could tell you, a local Italian sandwich maker would be first in line..................Double meat please

Italian Subs around here wouldn't scorch a mark on my porch, "no meat, no heat!"[Johnny Cochran]!

And here I thought he was being a wiseguy talking about Fred DeLuca who opened a place called Pete's Super Submarines in Bridgeport, Connecticut, PNWCHEF's hometown, back in the mid ''60s. The guy never amounted to anything, unless you consider Subway anything. They went to the same high school, maybe even together. I forgot about the Jimmy John's or whatever with the bare minimum of meat.

Pete's Subs, corner of Boston ave and East Main st. I used to stop there after working the swing shift at General Electric on Boston Ave. I would order an Italian sub and a cold cut combo and eat two of them while watching Johnny Carson. They used to cut a slit around the top of the sub roll and rip the top off and placed the meat on top of the roll, they threw that portion of the bread away. The nextweek, after people complained, they started giving the bread to feed the animals at the zoo. Something happened to that idea, they then made your sub and put the ripped piece on top of the sandwich after it was made. I went through all the growing pains with Pete's Subs.........Your not putting one over on me Mr Hoffman...............pnwc

So far I had everything any boy could want.  A number of dogs-----a paper route----and after my father died I worked every summer on a dairy farm (early to bed and early to rise, milking and shoveling 7 days a week makes a great summer for any boy).  Also had a lake to swim in 1/4 mile from our front door.  What next?
Did i have a perfect life as a teenager?  I never realized how blessed I was.

What every kid needs and should have is a little more slack on the leash that is being put on them buy {well meaning} adults.
Let the kids grow up as they should. Teach them that there are winners and loosers on the ball field, keep score it helps their math.
They don't need structure of organized sports, pick up games in a field or on the court or on the ice can add a whole lot to a childs development. If they want to join an organized sport they will let you know.
There are bullys in school on the playground and in the neighborhood, always has been and always will be, most kids figure out a way to deal with it. Just part of growing up.
Loosen up the reains alittle and let the child find their own way, they may and will suprise you.

And to add to Jim's statement, their fun should be UNINTERRUPTED by cell phones.We didnt have them growing up, Thank God.Mom and Dad knew where I was( mostly) and trusted the place or home I was at.If I was late-rarely-they would call one of the other Moms on a regular phone to gather information on our whereabouts.

I recently was stuck with taking 3 boys to lunch.  We picked Bob Evans which was right across the street.  Before we left the parking lot I said----OK, Listen Up Gang----no hats, no cell phones, no tweeters.  Wash your hands, sit down and decide what you want so that the waitress doesn't have to wait and be polite.
 
Six eyes looked at me as if I were a nut let loose from a booby hatch.
But, they did what they were told and when I dropped them off they ran to their parents to complain.  I got more dirty looks-----------so Ann I don't volunteer any more.

Every kid needs a funny Uncle whose not afraid to crack the whip, not literally, verbally. An Uncle you are always dying to have drop by, one you wouldn't dream of disappointing, he's too much fun to be around to get him upset with you.

Tom,
  I have that Uncle ! And thank Heaven, he is still alive ! He is the last of my mother's generation. When my step-father ignored me thru my teenage years, the uncle was there to help me find that 'first job'. When I went in the service, he was the guy who gave me the "keep-your-nose-clean, and your mouth shut" talk. I didn't see him for 25 years after that, but when I divorced and came home to SoCal, he looked me up and offered a place to store my junk and re-assemble my "restart" to my new life.
We stay in touch via email casually...He is the Dad I never had, and I wouldn't be here now if he hadn't taken the time to be that role-model for me.

My uncle took the place of my father when I was a kid.  I loved him dearly.  He took me fishing all the time; the best was the opening day of trout season on Catherine Creek in New York State.  He would come early and tell my mother that going fishing with him was more important than going to school that day and off we would go.
 
We would fish until we caught our limit which I remember as being ten trout.  We would then drive back up to our town and head for his favorite bar.  He would sit me right next to him and ordered me the same thing each time; all the ginger ale that I could drink and a big  plate of pickled sausages, herrings and eggs!  This ia  most treasured memory of my childhood.

I was a year old when my uncle came back from serving in Korea.  He brought me a little gold necklace with some sort of a charm hanging from it.
 
I immediately ate it.

I was too old for Korea.
My Uncles didn't bother with me--they were too busy.
They weren't funny either.
 
But, I had my dog, my paper route and my summer job on the dairy farm.
 
And us guys would go skinny dippin in the lake at night---until--
one night some girls stole out clothes.  Darn near froze in that lake at midnight.

Al, great to hear he's still with you. I hope I'm that Uncle to my oldest brothers 5 boys in the Bay area. When I lived in CA. I was always with them, I spoiled them, made them laugh, kicked their azzes when needed, told them truths their Father, my beloved brother, danced around, and we are very close today!

My life's ambition when I was a kid was to grow up to be a Good Humor Man/teenager and have one of the Good Humor tricycles with the refrigerated box on the front. Oh, how I longed for the white uniform with the black Sam Brown belt.
 
I ws a Good Humor freak. I always got the same thing -- what we called a chocolate stick, which meant a chocolate ice cream bar dipped in chocolate on a stick. I still remember the disdain in which I held my mother's standard choice, a toasted almond stick.

All I wanted from the Good Humor Man, the Helmsman and the local bus driver was one of those cool change machines that hung on their belts.

Something about the action of their thumbs and the sound they made.  They were cool.
 
My Good Humor order was either a Fudgesicle or a Dreamsicle/Creamsicle/50-50 bar.  What was that called?

Oh, how I loved Creamsicles, and Fudgesicles, too. But I never got one from a Good Humor man. I got excited a few years ago when I saw Creamsicles in a store and bought a box. When I got home and went to get one I was really disappointed. It didn't look anything like the ones from when I was a kid. For one thing, the orange wasn't the same shade, and for another there was a sort of, I don't know, a dip up the middle. The orange sherbet part was more like orange ice, and the vanilla ice cream was grainy and cheap.

Michael----"You can't go home again".

In fact I'm seriously considering making the trip soon. I'm sure nothing has changed. Not even the prices. I can't wait for my 75-cent lobster roll.
