Memos at random


What may have been the last shop to sell genuine Delaware-style submarine sandwiches in this area has closed. We've been going to Frankie's on Union Street between Fourth and Fifth in Wilmington for more than 40 years. When we stopped by this week there was a note on the door from Helen -- a.k.a. Miss Frankie -- saying she no longer felt she could contiue the business and thanking her loyal customers. Over the years we've sampled the chain-store immitations sold under a variety of names and found none of them measured up to the real thing. We'll miss you and your subs, Miss Frankie.
