STEEL PIER , Atlantic City N.J. , Steel Pier will always be a Magical place to those of us that were lucky enough to spend a day on the "Pier". I was lucky enough to " grow up" on Steel Pier , first job, first dance with a girl, first kiss , first feelings of independence and freedom wandering the Pier from Entrance to Ballroom, knowing everyone & everything in-between , Somehow those days seemed a bit safer for kids and families ...a bit gentler.....WOW , I really miss those days... Don't you ?
" MMMmm they're soooo good , when you wake up in the morning , they're gonna make you wanna ...JUMP Right outta bed ! "
We didn't forget the BELGIUM WAFFLE Pitch .

I spent so many days feeding the pidgeons on the boards, the sun on my face and the Ocean Breeze blocked by STEEL PIER.
The Atlantic City Trams owned by Bobby McAllister .The Virginia Theater was closed, Lou's Artist Village open, Irene's Gifts was open

NOTE : Bobby Jones passed Recently ,Feb 2006 . Bobby was a Friend that took me in as a 15 year old runaway , gave me a job , a meal and a Mentor for many years .WHAT A SALESMAN & Showman! . His choice of lifestyle was different from mine but that's what helps make my Crayon Box so full of colors .The Characters that I have met through life that never passed judgment on me as I didn't on them. Those of you that have passed judgment on me or others because of Skin Color, Lifestyle or the way we do things "Rain on You "as AMOS would say .
Bobby Jones will be Missed by those of us that Knew him .
