That was when people knew each other, talked, visited each other, and took care of their communities. It took many years, decades, for that road to get a name, I guess because the needs were met fine the way it was, although I remember someone asking me for my address to send flowers, and well, you can imagine how that went. Anyhow, your post brought me many sweet memories.
