Before Red Apple was, I can't remember what it was, a Thriftway? They had a photo booth. We took pictures in that photo booth in front of Red Apple. It was like a big trailer, and they had a photography studio in there, but it was parked right in the Red Apple parking lot. I've never seen that ever again in life, you didn't have to go to the mall or anything. You just go right to your grocery store, and they were beautiful pictures, just like a normal studio.
