‘Mr. Seymour’s Record Store’ By S. Denise Wise

Josie Jamison has been in love with Simone Seymour since the sand box. Emma’s Café lay cater-corner from Mr. Seymour’s Record Store, a vintage mecca founded by Simon’s great-grandfather John Otha Seymour, located 220 Nance Drive. The family’s children were raised together, with Simon and Josie breaking the same arm on the same day at five-years old while climbing Mrs. Fields apple tree. Lord those apples sure were sweet.
After high school Simon and Josie went their separate ways and tried to stay in touch as much as they could. They were friends for life. Josie went to Yale and received a Ph.D. in International Entertainment Law. She traveled all over the world with major athletes, representing their contracts and endorsements. After Aunt Snookie, the matriarch of the family had a stroke, she had to return home.
