Feeling Kinda Blue

The Sunoco gas station on Bells Ferry Road near Hwy 92 in Woodstock has been shut down and the signage has been covered in blue paint. We don’t know at this time what the plans are for the site, but the site of the old Red Barn Mobile Home Park behind it is getting ready to open as a new assisted living facility.

‘S’Long, Jason

We were sad to see Jason’s Automotive close down at 802 Bascomb Commercial Pkwy in Woodstock, and basically disappear in the middle of the night. We’ve used them for a few automotive issues over the years and they seemed like honest people. Whenever we think of the name Jason, we think of this famous Jason and the Argonauts skeleton fight scene from the 1963 movie “Jason and the Argonauts”. The animation by Ray Harryhausen was always phenomenal in the pre-computer generated animation era.

We Can Work It Out

A new gym called the Hustle House Health and Wellness is having their grand opening on Saturday, July 15, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Located at 2485 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock, 30189. Also opened there is the MerryMac Dog Training business and a $20 Chiropractic is opening there as well. A Surf’s Up Fitness also recently opened on Eagle Drive in Woodstock. With the two new workout gym’s opening it had us thinking of this tune.

Happy Fourth of July

Crumblin’ Down

Can’t get out of our head John Mellencamp’s Crumblin’ Down as the wall with the Woodstock mural is brought down on Monday at at the intersection of Main Street and Towne Lake Parkway. The new Rootstock & Vine and Vintner’s Rooftop owners have pushed back the opening until mid-August. A new mural is scheduled to be painted on the side wall of the Woodstock Health Mart Pharmacy.
