In memory of Jim Goodrich

When he had his “swap shop” on Main Street, I’d go in looking for something, say 1950s vintage, for background in my writing area.  He’d quickly direct me to the right sector.  I’d wander around a bit and call him over for a question and we’d get into relating a certain piece back to things […]
