It was out with the old and in with the new at 7th and Montana this morning as a Newbie Barista made the scene. "Sorry, I'm new ... I don't remember what you always order," he said. "No problem," I replied, whipping out my Spycam, "But just for that, I'm putting you in my blog." "The name's Nelson," he said, "N-E-L-S-O-N!" He spelled it out for me in case my brain was closed for business. Speaking of which, it's curtains for the Blockbuster Video across from Our Favorite Starbucks. Inside sources say "everything must go" ... from the DVDs, which are 40 percent off, to the store fixtures that can be yours for a song. So much for the high rent district ...!

I am sure you will whip Nelson into shape in no time at all.

With $5 DVD's, RedBox, on demand movies, and streaming, the video store is a thing of the past. A recent article in our paper indicated that the county library is doing brisk business in video game rentals, so even that revenue stream is drying up.

We will have to look for a local closing to score some DVD's :o)

I love the Teddy Bear :) We have a wonderful old theather named the Naro and the Video shop by the same name next door. Block Busters didn't stand a chance.
