Subject: RE: kids' game: I'm goin' down town to smoke my pipe
I was in Kalamazoo MI in the 60's and 70's We all knew the saying as I am going downtown to smoke my pipe i wont be back til Saturday night. but from the loks of these posts It must have been very popular in MI. I think It originated for us in Kalamazoo because my mom was transplany to Kalamazoo from the detroit area in the 40's.
