Thanks for the trip down memory lane, though we always went to Goodnoe's for ice cream and not Tanners.  I grew up in Philadelphia and spent five years or more in Newtown Borough with my girls when they were little.  I worked for Coldwell Banker Hearthside when they were in they opened in the Goodnoe's shopping center before they moved to State Street.
