RIP Win Michaels

I remember working for him around 1972 and calling him Tiny.
He operated Tonys Pizza at the north end of Main Street
(just before the RR tracks and next to the Shoe Repair store)
I delivered pizzas in his gray "64 Mustang convertible.
(often friends would come along and party)
I remember his wife was often there.
Years later I would see him entertaining at weddings, clubs, bars and other places.
....another Hackettstown legend has passed on to "The Great Gig in the Sky"

Beloved Black Squirrel

Wondering if anyone has seen a black squirrel in Hackettstown recently? I had one living near my house in the Washington St/ Warren St. / Madison area. He was delightful and would gladly enjoy nuts i left for him. There are very few black squirrels in the area and this little guy was last seen in February. Im hoping he is fine....and the trees were just greener a few blocks away. Has anyone seen George Washington a beloved black squirrel?

Old Electronics and Cords and Cords and Cords

I'm sure I'm not the only one with this scenario..in the process of cleaning out some drawers and closets, I'm overwhelmed with the number of old phones, cords, tablets, video recorders, that I've found. The person trying to downsize and get rid of the things no longer used says "toss", who want's this stuff but the hoarder in me says you might be looking for that cord, recorder, etc. someday. We have new earbuds that used to come with the I-phone, earphones we've tried only to discover they weren't really the ones wanted, WHAT DO YOU DO... More

Record Store Day 2017

The day has arrived! It isRecord Store Day 2017! Just thought I'd pop out a little reminder on here that our local Sound Effects Records down on Main Street is participating and I, for one, can't wait to get down there and see what Jerry has stocked for today! Happy digging everybody! :)

PS You can find the official list of today's releases at recordstoreday.com, but just note that not every record store will receive every release and limited copies of others... Go.. Run! And have a great day all :)

Property Management Company

I will be moving out of Hackettstown for a couple of years, but plan on returning. I will be renting my house and am looking for a property management company to deal with all the hassles of renting, repairs, collection of rent, etc while I am away. Any recommendations are appreciated.

(I've made it sound like I'm off to jail. I'm not. Just going to be caring for an ailing relative out of state)
