The other day I was telling my wife about the "Blizzard of '78" and started getting nostalgic about my younger years. I told her that we would have to take a trip back home and show her around, but after doing a little checking on the internet, I found out some of the places I wanted to take her are no longer there! What happenened to Dominic's or Southwyke Mall for that matter? I have memories of going to the Saturday morning matinee at the Colony Theater was I was young, but they tore that down. Buying my first album from Peaches on Reynolds (which later became Coconuts),going to Old Towne at the mall, but they took that away. All the drive-ins are gone (Miracle Mile, Jesse James, and most, if not all, of the others)
I see a lot of changes going on but are they for the better? Toledo will always be my hometown but a lot of places I had some of my fondest memories of are no longer there. Please feel free to share some of your favorite places and memories of home.
