First Cigarettes

I bough my first and only pack of Marlboro's there. Smoked one and got sick as a dog. Never had another. It was a cool store I was sad to see it go..

Herb Bumpas was my uncle.

I remember building display shelves and running this awesome floor cleaner when I was maybe 12 to 14 or 15 years old. It was an after school job. I always had money in my pocket.
The pharmacy was at the back of the store elevated two or three steps above the store floor. Uncle Herb's office was up these steps to the right. He would tell me what he wanted done, or he would pay me, always with as much conversation as he could eek out me.
We had Easter egg hunts, hay rides, and clam bakes at Herb and Margaret's farm for as long as I can remember. Herb Bumpas and my dad's father both had Alis Chalmers tractors. Herb Bumpas and his tractor were very positive entities in my young life. My grandfather and his tractor were the antithesis of anything positive for all of us.
And this @#$% HEAD was the mayor of Tallmadge.
But I digress, Herb Bumpas was an incredible man and a visionary. My Mom always called Aunt Margaret Sis. For as long as I can remember Aunt Margaret was the go to person when anything went to shit.
"A person of consequence" a phrase that aptly describes both Herb Bumpas and Mararget Bumpas.
