Funny, after all these years, I never knew that 3rd street was also called Beaver Street. This thread is educational as well as entertaining. Look at a map of Beaver County sometime; it’s amazing how many places have beaver in their names.
It looks like 3rd is route 68, and Beaver is a cross street… I was looking through the town and some of the names of the businesses and other facilities are funny too… probably because of the way google lists them… Beaver Travel Center, Beaver Super (sounds like an badly labeled adult toy from Hong Kong), Beaver Domestic (actually Beaver County on the sign), Beaver Alley (That really made me snicker), Beaver Tire & Service Center (Do they service tires or beavers?), Beaver Heritage Museum, Beaver Dick’s (the sporting goods chain… I hope)... There is an Otter street in the town… thats not a euphemism for anything is it?
Incidentally… How big was this vibrator, that you were injured by it falling on you…?
In this pic, front row, second from left. I’d estimate maybe 60 or 70 pounds, about 9 or 10 inches in diameter . http://www.fmctechnologies.com/en/MaterialHandlingSolutions/Technologies/VibratingandFlowAids/Vibrators/Electromagnetic.aspx It was about 8 feet off the floor when the bracket it was bolted to broke. It got me in the shoulder; about 5 seconds earlier and it would have hit me in the face.
I didn’t catch that Beaver Street is a cross street. I’ll have to pay more attention the next time I drive that way. I don’t actually live in Beaver. I do live along the Beaver River, though.
But on a less serious note (gotta keep the thread entertaining, for Wendy’s sake), yes the Dick’s store you mentioned is the sporting goods place; it’s located at the Beaver Valley Mall, in Center Township. When they first opened, I noticed that the name, Dicks, is in huge letters; below the Dick’s logo, along the sidewalk, were huge balls. Huge stone carved baseballs, basketballs, etc. Probably better than if the balls were above the Dick’s logo; that could have presented a falling hazard. (Much like the vibrator, only a lot bigger and heavier.)
I suppose if we continue using innuendo that sounds like we’re talking about toast, we should keep it in the ‘members’ only part of the forum…
