Saturday mornings


One of our family traditions growing up was Saturday morning errands. My dad, brother, and I basically vacated the house for all sorts of whatever every Saturday.

One of our regular destinations, pictured above, was the Davenport Bank Building, which has since been bought and sold a couple of times, and is now owned by Wells Fargo, I believe. Anyhow, my dad's law firm rented the 7th floor (and later the 6th as well), and our barbershop was on the 4th floor, and on the ground floor, there was a little newstand shop that was the only place to buy candy sticks (that I knew of at least).

Anyhow, one of the memories I have is being able to futz around in their office supply closet to my heart's content. I love the office supplies. I remember also flying paper airplanes out of the 7th floor windows, and in a town with few other comparably tall buildings, this can be a lot of fun.
