Growing up in Headland in the '70s and early '80s, Edd's place on the town square was the place to grab a bite. I remember those cheeseburger plates to go, sealed in a brown paper bag. And it seems like there was a toothpick running straight through the burger, holding it together. I ate some hot dogs, too, but I definitely was more into the cheeseburgers. And I thought the fries were quite good. Sometimes Mother would call in an order, and I'd run in. When I entered Edd's, I recall seeing Tom Posey shucking those oysters and fixing those hot dogs behind the counter. At church, when I'd see Edd, Tom's father, in my child's mind he was a celebrity of sorts. Probably most intriguing to me were the ads around town proclaiming the hot dogs to be the best in the world. At that age, I saw no reason to dispute it. They were indeed delicious. Wish I could try one now.
During my travels, I have been known to drop off a Headland National Bank cap or two w/ folks I meet or perhaps just trade one for some item of interest. Probably a few bank pens are in far flung places as well. Question: Is it Edd's or Ed's?? Could the paper have a typo?
