Last five posts from the CHAT-M-Room (Town Common) are:

Richard and everyone so many interesting posts brought back memories like this one - first exposure to anything other than baseball and 14 year old boy stuff was when I had to go to the laundromat and ask Mrs DiLorenzo if Kitty could come out and play - what she didn't know was I ws really a front for Rudy (that Ulrich boy!) and as soon as Kitty was freed to come with me (innocent, harmless) we headed across town to the CBI beach dunes where she would meet up with Rudy and "make out" - sometimes they would bring Ashlynne Summers for me but neither she nor I knew what to do or had any interest in doing it so we'd leave them and go find Eddie Doane and head up to that brick drugstore on the corner and order 3 lime rickeys - everything changed dramatically the next year when I went to my first West Chatham square dance - better stop there

The cement walkway to Frank Dill's front entrance is still there. The house was moved to Shore Rd., down below the house on the corner of Main ST. and Shore Rd.

Paul Karr was a ham radio operator when I was I scouts. He taught us morse code and how to operate a ham radio. His call sign was W1dpo.

Paul Karr went to sea as a Merchant Marine telegraphist and may well have worked at WCC. I will check the RCA pay records.

Okay, so the plot thickens with Stephen Page dropping off a telegraph key that was formerly Paul Karr's. Does anyone know if former Postmaster Karr served anywhere as a Radio Operator? I plan to turn the key over to the Chatham Marconi Maritime Museum. It has vestiges of tape wrapped around the heavy base, which indicates to me that it might have been used aboard ship; the tape to keep it from sliding.
