On the road from here to there, from now to back then. We’ll pass through the center of nowhere.
I promised my daughter I wouldn’t take her photo, only of her new ride.
The weather advisory warned of ponding on lowland roads.
We left on a rainy morning.
In every direction, four strong winds.
In 221 miles, there are perhaps two places to buy gas. This is not one of those places. This is the center of where those four strong winds blow. But still, I like to stop here and I’ve taken some photos to show you why.
The grocery portion has two aisles. See the antler on the rope? It hangs above the area where the cashier stands. When her customer is ready to leave the store, arms full of groceries (the only place to buy groceries in a 100 mile radius), she reaches up and pulls the antlers down, which causes the door to open. Cool, huh?
This is my favorite moment on the trip. Around the corner from the luncheon counter (sits five) and down a rickety flight of yellow wooden stairs, and then around one more corner, is the bathroom. I love this doorknob. The keyhole doesn’t work.
While I was taking this photo, someone told me I am easily amused.
Public phone for anyone who needs to use it. Oh, and the county directory.
Back on the road again. No, we aren’t there yet, but by now we are feeling like we are halfway back to the past. Then? Cue the train and its whistle to escort you the rest of the way.
