And Rhode Islanders call them grinders, one of which you might order with a "cabinet" (milk shake). I think they turn into "subs" again out in the midwest.That's okay, New Yorkers call them "hero's"
I prefer the word "sub." Anything but that sounds unnatural.
Hey there, not to hijack...Yes I do ,Been there for the last 25 years . Whew! that's a long dam time at one place
I've noticed these too along the BHP. Who knows what little oddities are sitting there hidden in the scrub.You are a regular Tom Bodett!
That was a neat run Ben.
I always thought about doing something similar along the Black Horse Pike as it passes through the pines.
Beginning in Cecil and headed east, there area lot of unusual motels, buildings and businesses, some abandoned, some not, and then long stretches of pure pines between 559 and 50.
Once you hit the Hamilton Mall the party is over.
I heard that Tom....and it was tied to the shipyard workers I think. I grew up in Burlington County, and we always called them Hoagies. Now I live in Ocean County, and they call them Subs. I catch myself using both terms.The folks on this site that live in or near Philly may or may not confirm this as true. I believe the term hoagie comes from Hog Island in the Delaware River. From what I was told, Italian Immigrants on the island first put meats such as salami, cappacolla etc., added sharp cheese and slapped them in italian bread and the hoagie was born. I'm sure a little olive oil was also part of it.
Tom, I have been working for Delta/Elite Drywall for 24 years now. Our office is now in West Berlin but previously was located in The Ridings of Southampton off Chairville Rd. and from the mid 60's to the mid 80's on an old farm off Pemberton-Vincentown Rd. We did a lot of work in Medford,Mt. Laurel and Leisuretown. We have been working in Philly the past 10 years and the only concrete guys I can remember are Rust Corp. They had a foreman named Sarge who yelled a lot but was really a good guy.Yes I do ,Been there for the last 25 years . Whew! that's a long dam time at one place
Tom, Hey you big bum, get a job! Speaking of head clearing, I'm off this coming Friday and plan to be out in the pines. Give me a call.Talk about a head and soul clearing , I'm off most of the time from lack of work and I've been out in the pines almost everyday, I'm heading out in about an hour and it is the best clearing I've had in a long time . The silence and beauty of the pines is just about the best it can get!!!
