MrAllied, you made my day! The photo of your front counter transported me back to Hall's Hobby House in Dallas. I became close friends with Bobbye (Miss Hall as she was know to her regular customers) over the years. Even after my move to Germany in late 76 we continued to exchange Christmas cards every year. Her biography written with Tim Blackwell, "Tracks from Texas to Tokyo" published by Cowcatcher Magazine, is a great read!
Thanks for sharing.
