    Re: Your Favorite Things You Can't Get Anymore

    I'm late to the conversation, but I miss Dr. Pepper in real, light green glass bottles which are icy cold. Oh my! One of the first things I'm having when I get to heaven.

    I miss my one Grandma's apple kuchen coffee cake and her honest to goodness chocolate chip cookies. The other I miss her potato soup and her goetta and the parties at her house with the 50 cousins! Pure insanity.

    Maybe if they clean the windows and check the oil for you. But just sticking the nozzle in there and filling up the tank? I don't know. Do you know if they have the latches that hold the pump trigger open so that the guy doesn't have to hold it while he pumps?

    By the way, why is it that the trigger latches are so common in Ohio, but not in other states? Are they somehow against the law?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Only on the AC expressway have I ever had any type of window washing while being fueled, so I tipped the gal.

    I pumped my own gas in Palmyra, NJ only b/c it was swamped at that service station at the time, and the pump did have a trigger latch. I can't speak for the rest of NJ service stations as that's the only one I've operated.

    As for trigger latches, down here in FL it seems to be a chain by chain basis. The bigger names have them, the smaller name stations do not.

    I miss Aladdin's Castle in both the Tri County and Eastgate malls.

    I also miss Malibu Grand Prix, in Sharonville and also Columbus.
