And another one bites the dust
Posted by GMorrison on Wednesday, January 08, 2014 10:18 PM

Oh HE77!

My favorite LHS ever just sent me a liquidation notice.

Franciscan Hobbies in San Francisco on Ocean Avenue.

In business for 68 years and I've been a customer for at least 20.

John took it over from his dad Bill, and there was Don in trains.

This one really hurts and will be missed.

Well that sucks big time!!!! I know the feeling all to well. I don't care what one says about the convenience of shopping online, it is not the same as going in to the shop and seeing it up close and personal.

Sad news indeed.

Hey, what's is with this trend in song titles that is starting to invade this forum? Another one bites the dust? Who are you?

I'm from the government and I'm here to help.
