    I'm sure a few of you older guys in Kansas City have been to the Intercity bait shop back when it was in its prime. It has recently reopened and I did a story for my column a couple of weeks ago about my first visit there as a boy 50 years ago. Here is the link in case some of you want to read it.

    Thats a great story. I have never been there and actually never heard of it, but I do remember when I was a kid going to the baitshop with my grandad. The story brought back some great memories. I remember going to the baitshop and having to wait while my grandad shot the bull with the other "Ol Timers", used to be really aggrivating at the age of 8 or 9. But now that I am older I would give anything to have him back to shoot the bull with and have him meet my son that is getting all of what I learned from him passed on down.
