Every now and then, I'll get to drop by about the time Ron Greer and Michael Garmen are opening shop. They start their pawn work day with prayer together. The chances I usually drop by are in the afternoon just prior to picking up the girls from school. That is, when I'm not needed at the clinic. I probably drop by about once a week. I love this place, kind of cramped in there, but always something going on.
To me, it's about as close to Mayberry that a person can get. Somebody's always got a song, or a joke, or a story, all while doing business. There's always something interesting going on. I'll go, look around, maybe have a conversation, talk about God or guitars. I never get to stay as long as I like, but I'll always be back.
I don't know why, but I'm drawn to the place. Yep, I like going to a place with lots of guitars hanging on the wall. I also like all kinds of retro stuff like jukeboxes, old guitar amps, LP's. etc. This isn't the reason I am drawn to this place. I really love the guys that run it.
