No More Shoe Repairs, Carl's Is Closed

The day had arrived at last. Carl's leatherworking machinery had been gone for months, but now someone was cleaning the empty shop, not cleaning out the shop. Carl really wasn't coming back. Here's a picture of Carl before the stroke that he had a bit over a year ago. If you poke around The Price of Silver there are other photos of Carl from as far back as the early 1970's.

Carl is now living at a rehab place, but even he realizes that he'll never get back to fixing shoes again. He had the stroke well over a year ago. The landlord needs a paying tenant where the shoe repair shop was located for forty years or more. Maybe next time that I'm eating at Jimmie's Place I'll look across the parking lot and see a new sign telling me what kind of business moved in there.
