in a shameless attempt to win me and my girl a pair of tickets to In The Heights, I'm asking
, well begging, you to vote for me using the attached link. I'm doing pretty good in the standings,
but still need your help! Every vote counts and truly makes the difference. Keep 'em comin!!

I remember my friend and I walking home done that walk. We heard some kids talking as we got towards the bottom about beating the daylights out of the next kids that came passed. The kid waiting to beat us up was one of the infamous Doctors. Luckily, my friend was Joey Doctor's cousin and instead he was nice and friendly. What a relief!

Those Doctors, Connors, and Fairs
were always trouble all through
the 70's. I wonder where they are
now? Probably either in jail or
dead.

Beautiful picture. Walked down that path many times! That's how I remember Butler. Been a long time, though.

ONE OF THE DOCTORS IS DEAD & OTHERS ARE TOO DAMN OLD TO CAUSE TROUBLE NOW

It's a shame that they terrorize alot of people back then. Made some kids miserable.

I traveled up and down that path. I don't remember the sidewalk that wide back in 61/62. Nobody ever bothered you, you sweated going up and coming you could almost roll.
