The pile of rubble you see at left used to be Jerry's 27th Street Market, a small neighborhood grocery store a few blocks from a house I once owned in Boise.
Jerry's had been in business for more than 60 years. I know they had some hard times and when I lived nearby, I did my part to keep the place open, stopping in for milk and bread, snacks and the occasional lottery ticket.
And it was here, in the late 1990s, that I won $5,000.
