Neighbors watched out for each other?

I've lived on a dead end with two other houses. We USED to have a mini "block party" But no more. We hardly talk to each other. (One neighbor moved, replaced with a guy who is anti social, and it spread.)

Our city requires all door-to-door salespersons to register at town hall and pay a license fee. Doesn't always happen. I suppose it was done so the police would know how to deal with the phone calls. "There's a strange person going around knocking on all the doors."

My neighbor across the street will escape soon to North Carolina until May. She puts a sign on the door "Nothing inside worth taking. Besides, one of the neighbors never sleeps and he plays cards with the police chief."

She thinks I never sleep because my kitchen light is always on. And I have no idea where she came up with the police chief thing.

The City of Marlborough has signs up at the entrances on Route 20 and 85 that all solicitors must register with the police department.

Mr. Jordan was our Fuller Brush Man. Came to the Service Entrance. Called MOM Mrs. Capecoddah. Called me Master Capecoddah. Wore a tie.

Mr. Bell was our Hood milkman. 2 deliveries a week. 2.5 gallon milk container for 2 teenagers, a child (me) and a revolving door of Foreign Exchange Students. Service Entrance (garage).
(MOM's POP had a dairy company in Rural, Indiana from the 1920's to 1950's. Back in the bottled milk days.)

Not quite an old fashioned neighborhood, we all know each other and are BBQ-Friendly. We trade tomatoes. We used to have a Winter Sunday Brunch. It was a nice thing that got too big. We ended it when a snow plow took out a couple cars. A few of us get together for omelets and muffins and Bloody Marys on occasion.

Betsy Hernandez, 7th grade, 1974 = first obsessive teen make-out sessions. Oi, ...so long ago.

Do you remember when we referred to sexual partners as lovers?

Brenda Childs, 5th grade. I wouldn't call it a make out session, just my first kiss.

The Mill Hill Club in West Yarmouth?

It's going to be torn down soon. I'd like to get inside with a screwdriver, wrench, hammer and chisel. A memento.

I played there (first time) in a band when I was 16. Free rum and Cokes.
I went to the last Happy Hour, June 30, 1985. Barely legal @ 20 years old.

The DickHead Editor of the Cape Cod Times has this to say:
Times Blog: Last call for an era

By CAPE COD TIMES
April 26, 2013

If that crystal ball could talk, the one once - maybe still - affixed to the ceiling at the defunct Mill Hill Club in West Yarmouth.

Once among those Cape Cod bastions of baby boomer, booze-soaked excess, the Mill Hill Club seems destined for that two-for-one Happy Hour in the sky.

Which is not a bad thing at all. Times staffer Gregory Bryant's latest blog:

Here's five I thought of.....

1. Don Zimmer was the 3rd base coach for the Red Sox
2. It cost 50 cents to ride on the T from Park Street to Riverside and you paid the second quarter when you got off.
3. You watched the Bruins on channel 38
4. Pizza was $.25 a slice at Pino's in Cleveland Circle
5. You slipped the usher a dollar to get into the bleachers at Fenway, no rain check.
