Fact:  main lining drugs is much more efficent than popping pills because you skip 1st pass metabolism.

Heroin numbs emotional pain as well as physical pain and can be surprisingly effective if given in a timely manner.

Both heroin and cocaine have proven anti depressant qualities.

We've all been ear beaten by all the potential negative side effects of these drugs, we all know them, no need to repeat the obvious but multiple fark heads are going to do it anyway.  So yeah, addiction and death.  Blah blah blah.

Used to be a drug store chain in northern Delaware and vicinity until Walgreen's bought them out.  They were my drugstore of choice.

I am well aware, as my Dad was from there and my relatives still live there.  New 22 was a big event for us when we went to visit the grandparents.  Dad hated it though and we usually went the old way.  And when they got the Sheetz and you didn't have to go to Gallitzin?  Man alive.

"Used to be?!" They got rid of Happy Harry?! Awww, I used to love those signs when I was a kid. Especially when relatives were visiting from out of town and I got to point out that we get our drugs from a happy guy named Harry. Look at how happy he is! Awww to be in middle school again...

Or as us locals called it "Old Rt 22".  I remember when the hi-way was built.  One of the first runs as a volunteer fireman I went on was for the 20+ car pile up in the "Storm of the Century" in 93 on the curve between Galitzen and Summit exits. (if you've driven it, you know the exact curve)

I never got a chance to take a photo of the sign but once there was a restaurant in my neighborhood named Bong Out Cafe. Truly one had to be very stoned to eat there as it was mostly very not fresh Asian food of assorted varieties. Frozen egg rolls reheated in the microwave kind of place.

/ Funny name, very bad food.

All of yinz are makin' me homesick.  I was born in Johnstown and grew up in northeast Somerset County, on Rte. 30 just before you drop down off the top past the old Ship Hotel (or where it *used* to be...).

I worked for a couple years in Ebensburg and drove 22 over to the Altoona Vo-Tech, or to head back up to State College.

Most of the reason the good old days were good was because we were young, but the memories are still very fond, nevertheless.

I'm very happy in the DC area now, but Pennsylvania will always have a warm place in my heart.  Our place still has a tree where Dad carved his and Mom's initials.

Kalyco Jack: They got rid of Happy Harry?!


Yup, Walgreen's bought them out in the late 2000s and I think the stores were all converted to Walgreen's branding by ... I wanna say 2010?  I moved out of Delaware in the late '90s but I've kept up on the news, kinda.

And yeah, I remember when I first heard of Happy Harry as a freshman at UD.  Like, there's a drugstore named Happy Harry's? Are they just not doing phrasing any more?  Even my parents (like many UD students, I'm originally from northern NJ) were amused at that one.

I was at college during that.  walking down Old 22 in that deep snow was an experience.  Sheetz was open though.
