My mother was kind enough to leave a message here at my sister’s house, to let me know that the local Chronicle TV show was “Going Retro” tonight, and sis was cool enough to DVR it as I was out with pals.
They covered some of the places that I’ve been this week – Salem Willows, Simpson Springs – great minds think alike!
I was thrilled to see that Irvings Toy and Card Shop is still up and running- the proprietress is 94 years old! She’s like a Mass version of Freda Hirsch in her little market in Phoenixville.
At least this gave mum and dad a better understanding of what I am doing, and that it has some mainstream appeal! Here’s a link to the entire list of places they visited, and it looks like they should be adding the video soon!
