Working my Way Around the Wall

I had a really cool visitor come by today. He is 88 years old and remembers Ben Wheeler back in the 30's. He said that the town was a very vibrant little town and active in those days. And Moore's Store was packed with people hanging out and buying stuff. He showed me where the counter use to be and you can see how the foot traffic wore a big dip in the wooden floor. He also told me about how he went to Moore's Store once and asked Mr. Moore if he had a small yoke for a small mule. Without hesitation, Mr. Moore went to the back of the store and pulled out the smallest yoke he had ever seen. He was very impressed. I guess Moore's Store had everything from soup to nuts.
