    I got this one from you (at dustysevens, if anyone’s reading this and hasn’t yet gone)! I love “Comin’ Home Baby” and was so happy to have you drop this one into my hands.

    Is this place closed now? On Google Street View it looks like they’re open for business, but here it looks pretty deserted. I used to live right across the street from here in University Village, so it’s nice to see it again in all its Holga glory.

    Yes, sadly, it’s out of business. It closed sometime before this last winter. You lived in UV? So did I! We used to play hide and seek across the street in Union Cemetery at night, and we’d come and go from the side yard of Boulevard Gardens.

    I wonder if we lived in UV at the same time.

    Probably, since I think we were at OSU around the same time. I lived at 594 Stinchcomb during 1990 and 1991, but my girlfriend at the time lived on the other side of Stinchcomb for a year before that.

    Playing hide and seek in the cemetery, eh? This explains a lot. 🙂

    !!! I lived at 603 Stinchcomb from the last half of 1989 through the first half of 1991. Remember your neighbors across the street throwing any epic parties?

    I’ve always been a death hag. 🙂

      That was you? I was this close to calling the cops. Keep it down, will ya?

      You know, over Christmas break in 1990 I was so broke that I took a job delivering phone books to make some extra money, and happened to get the University Village route. So I can say without a doubt that I hand-delivered your 1991 phone book. You’re welcome. 🙂

    That was me. 🙂 If you remember seeing any shopping carts stripped for parts & up on blocks out in the parking lots, that was the result of one of our parties.

    You did?! Isn’t that funny, we may have actually exchanged words once. Life is full of strange coincidences. Did you ever go into the University City Plaza Subway? I worked there from 1990-1992. The last year, I pulled the closing shift, so if you were getting a sub between 6pm and 3 am, the girl with the long hair and loud music who was smoking like a chimney between customers was me.
