Roadside Scenery: Come and Get It While It’s Hot

June 19, 2017

No one’s ever offered me their chicken in quite this way before….   (KFC in Rolla Missouri, as seen from the Wal-Mart parking lot)  

Roadside Scenery: BOGO up, cowboy!

23rd Street, Lawrence / Kansas K-10 Highway I was heading out of Lawrence a few months ago, on the main street that turns into the road toward Kansas City, when I had to do several double-takes on the sale advertisement sign for a western wear and farm supply store (their sign is one of those changeable-letter marquee signs that lets you… Read More ›

Roadside Scenery: On Beyond the Freudian Slip

Central Missouri, Highway 50    

Brony Cat

My Cat Became a Brony…

Please, I’ll Do Anything, Just Make It Stop Lifestyle It’s… Read More ›
