I drive past the little non-descript building like I have done a thousand times. This time, for whatever reason, memories of its glory days come into my mind.

I’d stop there many mornings to get gas or kids’ snacks for school. I loved the little store. I remember the first check I wrote there. When I got to the paint store, I opened my checkbook and there was the check I wrote to Poarch’s Grocery for $10. I felt horrible. I had only stopped there a few times.
