Bosco's Hobby Shop - Shreve City: That was a boyhood hangout of mine. I use to go in and marvel at the remote control airplanes. I bought my first .049 model airplane engine and balsa wood plane kit there. He was a great guy. I know he got sick of me hanging around always asking questions, but he was always courteous and smiling, even when you could tell he had had enough. I loved that guy, thanks for reminding me of him.

Dons Restaurant - Kings Highway: My family use to go there for lunch on Sundays after church. At the time it seemed like the fanciest restaurant in the world. First place I ever had cajun cookin.

The Don Theater was the first theater I ever attended alone. My dad worked at the Slattery Building for Arkla Gas and when I would go to work with him he would give me a couple of bucks and tell me to "go see that movie you were talking about."

The first time I went I was scared to death. I think it was about a three or four block walk from his office to the theater, but I was afraid that every person walking on the street was going to try to kidnap me. Not exactly sure where that came from, probably my mom. I was so relieved to finally get to the box office.

I sort of remember going to see Saturday matinée double-features at the Don but maybe that was at the strand. Does anyone remember a movie where the actors appeared to come off of the screen and then played out a scene in the audience before returning to the film?

I do remember Shakey's Pizza Parlor as well as Pizza King - that was many a beer ago.

There was a Naramore's drug store in what became the Heart of Bossier shopping center. That's where my mom would go to get all her prescriptions filled. I sort of remember a medicine-like odor every time we went in, can't exactly describe it. My mom would buy greeting cards there too.

I seem to recall that Bealls (which was a couple of doors down) had one of those X-ray shoe sizing machines.
