Ray, I understand your feelings about leaving physical media behind. Going fully digital can feel completely liberating to many. The analogy isn't perfect, but I think the way some people prefer playing physical media vs. digital files is a bit like the folks here on this forum preferring a dedicated camera with lots of physical controls to using a high quality cel phone camera. One is not inherently better than the other, but the joy of the experience varies from person to person.
Here's my last couple shots from the day.....most of the time, I was too busy bagging up people's purchases or swiping credit cards to be shooting.
Here's a sidewalk sale we set-up in front of our neighbors at the Comet Cafe (you may have seen them featured on the TV show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on the Food Network. Every time they replay the episode, obese tourists from all over make the pilgrimage to try the bacon-wrapped meatloaf.) Mark from Furthermore Beer (they are very small craft brewers from Spring Green, WI....just outside of Madison) is serving up free samples of their latest IPA called Viking Afternoon......I had a few yesterday....they were pretty good.

And here's a goofy shot of one of our regulars. A hip, young man with impeccable taste who was bemused by this misogynistic record being offered in such a fine shop.
