Maybe I just missed it (and, contrary to popular belief, I do have a life to lead so I can't spent all day looking for it) but I didn't see any reference to the '60s British group Freddy and the Dreamers on the Fred Society page. Who can forget "Do the Freddy"? I certainly hope that they are, in fact, mentioned somewhere on the sight. Having a Fred Society site without that particular Fred is like having a Bill Society without Shatner.

I also fail to believe that they didn't mention the Fred's stores to which I referred in my earlier post. (No it wasn't a joke.) Fred's stores are all over south Alabama but the one that just opened here is Fred's first incursion into Florida. They began as chain of drug stores but the bankruptcy of a regional grocery chain left some larger-than-a-drugstore-would-ever-need size retail spaces for lease at below-market rates so Fred's has expanded into a WalMart wannabe.
