It was about a guy that later hung out a Tudges Pub in S.C.S. He grew up in the 6 and Troester area during the 40's and 50's and he speaks of Assumption Grotto and life on the east side in those days, getting into trouble and other things. He also speaks of Kathy Kelly who lived on a farm on Pumpkin Patch Lane (Kelly Road).
Oh by the way have you ever been to the Grottos cematary, it's amazing all the people buried there that have the street names as their last names Maddelein, Manning, Schoenherr, Groesbeck, Kelly and so many others.

whoa I used to go to Tudges! I even wrote a song about it! How old is that place?

Kelly was called Pumpkin Hook road due to the curve near 9 mile rd. A great example of the Private Claim and Federal survey systems coming together

And a great place to see a rollover accident, which I happened to see after the fact back in early January. On Kelly just 20 ft. south of 9 Mile at that bend.

Try John King Used Books on Fort St. or in Royal Oak.

My mentor and good friend Pierre co-founded that place back in the 50's. I've heard some hilarious stories :-)
