Owning a restaurant has never been easy, but for Meryl Frappier, the last 32 years have been the best time of her life. It's a period of time that started when she and her late husband Bobby opened a 450-square-foot hoagie shop in South Daytona in 1990, when Frappier was five-and-a-half months pregnant and making philly cheesesteaks. She'd deliver sandwiches then too; People would ask Bobby where she was sometimes and he'd tell them she was delivering.

That Moment in Time

Writer Phil Perkins shares teenage memories of a family trip when he was 16 – a nostalgic tale that speaks to memories in us all. In the summer of my 16th year, things just clicked.
