      Blair Mansion Inn Silver Spring,

      • And to become a card-carrying turtle, you had to answer three questions. The one I remember is: “What do men do standing up, women do sitting down, and dogs do on three legs?” The answer that got you into the club is, “Shake hands,” lol.

    • It’s an emoji of someone with long hair running

    Fun memories and some sad ones.

  9. #11 Also includes “Hungerford Drive” and “Frederick Road”.

  10. The Phoenix School was the nation’s – possibly the world’s – first recovery high school, 1979 – 2014. A 2nd location was opened in +/- 1982 because the need was so great – decades before the heroin crisis. The Phoenix School saved kids and families for 35 years, but in 2002 it was combined with other alternative programs, thus mixing students striving to stay sober with peers who did not share that value. Predictably, the relapse rate escalated and enrollment steadily declined. MoCo now has the Recovery Academic Program, free to all 6th – 12th graders, including transportation, meals, and field trips: https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/departments/studentservices/mentalhealth/rap.aspx.

  11. We call the Olney walking guy PODMAN because of his weird hair and have seen him walking as far out as Alexandria VA!! He actually lives behind the Kmart on Georgia Avenue

    Kensington department store also known as mr. Victors on Howard avenue in Kensington. You could get just about anything in his store and if he didn’t have it he would order it he carried buster Brown brand shoes ship & shore blouses and dresses simplicity and McCall patterns a few bolts of fabric. He knew all his customers their first and last names and he always greeted everybody with a big smile.

    What is the source of the information that “Country Roads” was actually written about Clopper Road? It seems to go from West Diamond Ave. in Gaithersburg to Boyds, and I don’t see anything remarkable about it. Are you being facetious?

  14. White Flint was a 9 hole golf course before it became White Flint Mall.

  15. Meat that can’t be beat.

  16. #19 is sketchy.

  17. Oh wow! Really happy memories.

  18. Wasn’t the first Toys R Us the one on University Blvd. in Langley Park, near the original Ledo’s?

  19. *The ice skating rink at Howard Johnson’s across from Wheaton Plaza.
