Glory Days



I was cleaning out a desk drawer the other day, and I stumbled upon this-- my Globe credit card.

As you can see, I acquired it in May of 1985.

It's not good for anything now, except a lot of memories.  It was the pre-mall place for back to school clothes.  It was the place where you visited Santa.  Later on, suits and ties-- and it was good stuff.

It was sad to see the Globe end the way it did.  The doors were suddenly locked, followed by a long and painful going out of business sale.
