Iconic irony

A couple of days ago, I posted this photo showing several icons of Kansas City:

Five Kansas City Icons

Five Kansas City Icons

Ironically, yesterday Halls announced that it would close this store on the Country Club Plaza and consolidate it with its store in Crown Center. Halls had been an anchor on the Plaza for nearly fifty years. Rumor has it that the space will become a food court with all the Yum! Brand products you know and love: Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut.

Yum!

    • Hi, Sherri, Glad to hear you are back and that you had a good time. Followed your exploits via Facebook. Thanks for the comment on the postcards. So, funny; I took that photo on Monday and they announce they are closing on Wednesday! Ah, progress, right? We didn’t make it to the Nelson after all. It was a crazy week with torrential rain and water in our basement. Suzanne was really busy all week and by the time Friday night rolled around, neither of us thought we could stay up past nine o’clock. Tell that Buck that he an I need to get together for lunch. I want to hear what he learned in Colorado. Maybe we’ll get together while you are gone on your cruise. That should, indeed, be an adventure! Cheers Charles
