Midlands Shopping Center started out as a virtual twin and sister site to Trenholm Plaza, anchored by two groceries, a five and dime and a post office. Over the years, however, it has failed to thrive and has largely moved beyond retail. With the recent demolition of the old A & P building, I thought perhaps somebody had a plan for the place, but I see today that it is all up for sale.

Lum's, Greene Street, Lum's, Knox Abbott. I think Lum's is the beer steamed hotdog place Homer remembers.

Get out there, persue some happiness and hold some truths to be self evident.

But do give a few minutes thought as to why we are able to celebrate it.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
