After Many Years of Advertising

"C'mon, let's eat lunch there," Phill said as we passed the first of many signs on I-95.

"You've got to be kidding?"

"No, I'm not. We can do it for the kids. I've been looking at these signs for most of my life."

"Oh, OK."

We even took the $1 per person ride to the top of the sombrero. Ay yi yi.

I'm so proud. Wes and I never did make it, even after driving past is 100s of time (literally).

I have always wanted to stop there, but my parents would never allow it for some reason. Now I'm older, I almost never find myself heading in that direction. But, one day, I will go!

If I owned that property, I would rip up much of the asphalt and turn the place into a park with shops and restaurants. The heat reflecting off the blacktop was near to stifling. The whole place is such a throw-back to another age, when cars were just becoming something for all to afford, when families were longing for a place to stop along a long highway.

What it needs to be now is a commercial rest stop with a place to walk the dog, let the kids play and eat, let the parents be roped into buying a neat toy (seriously, Cracker Barrel has better toys that that place). The place needs greenery and would be better for it.

Oops! Didn't mean to rant.
