Forever Darling Premiere

There are two Tim Horton's in Jamestown and one in Lakewood.  If you enjoy coffee and haven't tried it yet, do so the next time you come across a TJ, whether it's in Jamestown or elsewhere.

We literally have a Tim Horton's directly on the other side of our back fence...which is both convenient and terribly inconvenient, if you know what I mean.

 

Folgers trumpets the smell of coffee waking you up in the morning as something pretty spiffy. The smell of freshly baked donuts wafting through one's bedroom window ain't half bad either.

O M G talk about a great way to wake up, closest one to me is a whole block away so the smell has dissipated by the time it reaches my bedroom.

Was there today, such a nice place for casual meals and those doughnuts are so great too.  Why do you say WE're lucky, they did merge with your Burger King you know.

 

Was confused about 'luv's' Horton post; but, since we are still talking about it; we, here in NYS, have had it for at least 10 years here in Jamestown.  They only recently became affiliated nationally, I believe, with Burger King

 

You really must get back here, luv, if you like Horton's - ; two of them within a mile of downtown, on North Main Street, Rt. 60; in addition to South Main; W. Fairmount, Lakewood, and East Second Street, Jamestown; ALL within a few miles of downtown Jamestown.  ..

I have about ten of them within a five minute drive from here, LOL!  They're like Starbucks in the US, every corner has one.

They generally are coming down from Canada so that's why areas closer to you guys have them. I found a tiny little in NYC once. Surprised Charlie with hot coco on my way back from macy's. There is on in Penn Station.

We have ONE Starbucks; it seems to be ALWAYS packed.  Been there once; when it first opened; too pricey for my pocketbook on a regular basis.

Starbucks is what the young people are into nowadays. Never liked it myself. Another place I feel like I get dragged a lot to is Panera Bread. Are there many of those around the country?

Panera is everywhere. They're OK but nothing fabulous.

I miss Panera, when he used to do those great interviews on the Lucy dvds.  An he was quite the LOOKER too!

We need to open a thread on restaurant favorites; but, it confused me how we got off on this 'Forever Darling' premiere thread, oneof the more important events in Jamestown history....But, Panera just  opened in Lakewood about a mile from me; not been there yet; is it a bakery?

Panera does have baked good - bread, rolls, cookies, etc. - but it does have other food as well...mostly salads, sandwiches, and soups.  One just opened near us here in PA.  We've enjoyed it.

I can't find my initial post about this book, so I'm putting it here. Lucy Comes Home, featuring over 100 photos from the Feb. 1956 trip is on Amazon for pre-order.  Just hope the price comes done on this. The cover image is beautiful.

The author is the son of the woman in this photo.

The photos are part of a book Chris put together. There have been many out in the public for years. No one is selling them on Amazon. The book is on Amazon with a release date of next April. Go click the link.

Thanks for clarifying this, woman;  I was building up a fierce volcano within myself.  You ARE the best.  JK:fabrary: 

 

P.S.  Chris is, with a friend he graduated with in 1982, buying one of our iconic restaurants destroyed by fire in May;  hadn't got around to posting that; since I didn't think anyone would know who he is.  I appreciate your reply.

Just received from Amazon, Christopher T. Olsen, Lucy Comes Home, A Photographic Journey; it's lovely. 

 

Rumor has it, the Restaurant he and his former classmate have not progressed in the repair of the burned-out famous eating place, Bemus Point (on the other side of the Lake); [questionable assumption if they are still buying it] can't remember who told me; but, if I hear anything further, will pass the word along.  Just as a reminder, Chris is son to the Forever Darling Prremiere Queen, Janice Swanson (at the time) during Arnazes visit here in '56.
