The Mall: A Scouting Day

While Fae is away in Victoria, I have been taking a leisurely stroll through the old Tulsa scene, visiting places I have not seen for some time. Since I am in the market for a good pair of boots, combat or western, I stopped in an army surplus store, a thrift store and Drysdale's. Another place I have not seen for a few years is an old mall in East Tulsa. It has declined tremendously over the years, and its current state is a site to behold.

The escalators have stopped, although the fountain is still running. Every shop, save for three or four, are closed and vacant. The major department stores are gone, and the halls are empty, with the exception of a few mall walkers. No security, no personnel.

Ideas are forming, as the film reels turn in my mind...
