Yep, remember the bowling alley. It was one of those duck pin alley's. Had hamburgers and fries there when me and my friends used to ride our bikes out from the current Fair Oaks mall area. There was a similar alley at the middleburg community center pool and park. Once went on a "field trip" to it via bus from my elementary school, Jermantown elementary, in the mid 1960's. Now the school is PC, and has been renamed "Providence elementary".

Oh one more thing: artilce today about the same street the alley was once on.

Who is old enough to remember when the DMV gave you these key ring tags with your license plate number on them? The idea was that if you lost your keys and somebody found them they could be dropped into any mailbox and returned to the owner. I remember my Dad saying that it would also make it easy for someone to steal your car because the tag number was with your keys. I guess in those days people respected each others property much more than they do today and cars were rarely stolen.

I just did a little research on the key tags. They were not issued by the DMV but rather the DAV (disabled American veterans). They would send these to you in the mail for free and asked that you make a charitable contribution to the DAV.

We got those tags one year Fred. My father threw them out. We fished them out of the trash, put them on string and turned them into dog tags.
