Woulda, coulda, shoulda. It's how I feel about these Rockettes Christmas ornaments I saw in New York last week. I didn't have an inch to spare in my luggage. When I was a young kiddo, we decorated the tree on Christmas Eve - that way, you could get a "free" tree from the Christmas tree lots.
Just going through some older photos. Cole School at the corner of Cole and Fairview was torn down so make the property "easier to sell," after the school was replaced with a new facility nearby. The empty lot is still empty. It's been about three years.
Just two more weeks before this Boise icon closes. The owners of the Brick Oven Bistro, which used to be called the Brick Oven Beanery and will always be the Beanery to me, are retiring after 28 years of stuffing folks with home-style food served fast. I hope to get in one more time before the "end." The good news? The owners are putting together a cookbook so we can make gumbo and other favorites at home.
I stopped by last night to congratulate Steve Rambo on his retirement. The store will be closing out inventory through the first week of December. It will certainly be different without this keystone business downtown.
