Where else could you find a sign in an eating-place that reads “SHUCKY BEANS TODAY” other than right here in our section? Well, it happens now and then because I saw it with my own peepers. I had to give a complete rundown on what shucky beans was to a stranger in our area that saw it. I doubt if you could find any other restaurant offering shucky beans anywhere else in the country - other than here. It caught my eye because it has been a long time since my old boarding house days where shuckey beans were a regular part of my diet. Boys, how many of you can remember - and would like to see a boarding house table again? I can recall eating at Ma Dukes and also Ma Combs when she was at Vicco. Come to think of it, did you hear anything about ulcers in those days? Memories of the boarding house days have stayed with me; I'd like to try it out again sometime.
