    Happy Birthday! To my son Sean, that is. 21 today. Just his luck his birthday falls the day after Christmas. Reminds me of my Dad, whose birthday was June 9th, which was always within a week or so of Father's Day.

    Merry Christmas

    And Happy Holidays to all!

    BostonDevil, it is very kind of you to offer a prize. But I was just joking certainly didn't mean to goad you into it.

    I was expecting South of the Border also - but Stuckey's is also a blast from the past.

    The Stuckey's I remember were out west...but I do remember them from our many cross-country car journeys. Ahh, the days of cheap gasoline...

    Stuckey's

    I've mostly seen empty ones along I-70 - but you always recognize the blue roofs. The picture above is missing the weeds in the parking lot!

    Not to worry, I love to knit and it's just a scarf. Scarves are a great excuse to buy nice yarn. I always have a least one scarf on the needles because you can take those projects with you anywhere.

    Sadly, this what Stuckey's looks like today:

    Speaking of out west, here's an interesting sign along an Arizona highway:

    Interesting sign, where in AZ? I am there every few months as it is in my territory(I set auto/home/umbrella insurance rates for my company's western states, please keep the boos to a minimum!). I'm tempted to say down near Tucson somewhere, but honestly even after spending 5 years there, much of it just looks exactly the same starting from west of the Valley and down into Tucson.

    Is there a family out there by that name? Do they have a son who plays basketball? If so, is he on our recruiting radar?

    My favorite road sign ever is in Dallas. It's the one for East Northwest Highway.

    Southeastern CA is more or less like western AZ and many parts of Southern Nevada.

    PS Feels like we are running out of steam...

    Okay, new thought...best Christmas present you got this year?

    Planet Earth on HD DVD(sister) or a new watch(parents)...not sure which yet.

    Just checked the currently active member count, and there's only 14. Probably still a lot of folks on vacation or whatever. Will probably be a little slow until after the New Year's.
