& today if Silver Converted to Cash :occasion14:

if $20 of it was Silver "$386.42" :occasion18:

That's at least 2 Half Kegs of Yuengling Lager
if you have your own tap Yuengling Lager$180.15 for a half

of course, fill a Party Spot with a Dozen Schuylkill County Teens, They'll
kick it in one night :laughing9:

Yeah, I think they're making beer in one of those buildings. There's a Chinese restaurant near us that serves Yuengling because it sounds and looks like a Chinese name. I like zooming in to old photos to look for people. A moment in time. I think I see 2. One in the vehicle at the crossing and one streetside at the station.
