BroadStJudge, Thank you.

Whatever happened to the Rib Shack with the fan on the front blowing that hickory smoke outside? When going to Rich's, we would turn right off Memorial Drive at a funny intersection. There was a large drive-in on the right hand side and across from it was a big billboard that always had a CocaCola ad or as was usually said "Cocola." We went a block or two and turned left and that would take us past the Rib Shack.

Kessler's. Whitehall and Hunter. I bought my first permanent-press shirt there in the early '60s. Don't know what the Hell it was made of but it lasted over 15 years without a wrinkle! (although the last 5 years or so it had become a yard work shirt and was still comfortable.) Well worth the $2.75 it cost.

Ah, the Wit's End; Phil and Nancy Ericson and Sally ?
The slaves are revoltin', the slaves are revoltin'.
No, no, they're tacky, but not revoltin'.
I caught so many planes in the '7-s from the old green terminal.
There was a nice big shoeshine stand there. Do people even shine their shoes any more? Get off at Virginia Ave.
I played for the opening of the new, really tacky and too huge terminal with the Atlanta Pops Orch.
I've seen so many ends of eras. 'not too sure of the improvements, alas.
"They're tearing up Peachtree Again" was another WE fave.

"Tearing up Peachtree" Wasn't there something in the song about how the roadwork would keep Sherman from entering Atlanta?

I know I've asked about this before but I'll ask again--

It seems to me that 'Moody's Lake' was located somewhere near Lindbergh/Piedmont--possibly near the Home Depot on Sidney Marcus Blvd. Does anyone remember Moody's Lake?
Yes, Mooney's Lake was located off Piedmont and Lindbergh around what is a low marshy area west of I-85 and north of Lindberg behind the the old Morosgo apartment development. It featured a beach, diving towers, a small gauge railroad, an early type of zip-line where you actually slid down into the lake water, refreshments, arcades, paddle boats, and canoes.

I always liked the 2-story K-Mart at Broadview Plaza. How urban does it get?

I also remember channel 17 pre Ted Turner and WTBS.
Heck, I remember when Channel 11 was WLWA!
