Deep drag.

Oh-kay. So, what next?

Penny said...

Hell, no clue?

Can't get next to you babe?

Penny said...

BUT!

Do you know a man who can make a grey sky blue?

We have a store in Bailey CO named

Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms

The guy who pumps our septic tank has a business called Suckin' Up, and on the side of his truck, "Yesterday's Meals on Wheels."

I think green energy and range-less electric cars are a way to take road trips away from us, making it very difficult to get a sense for the wit, solidity, whimsy, and derision of the american people. Without a sense for the endless space in the heart of the country, and the irreverent and inventive people dotted across it, they hope to make us all into the sort of cosmopolites who sneer at flyover country.

My college roommate in Houston was from Sweetwater. Last I heard he moved back there to work as some kind of computer consultant. If something goes wrong with your computer you'll probably meet him.

That's the way it is in the West.

In WY, they have drive thru ammo and beer.

PS Very different from the Rocky Mountain states where mountains rise majestically right in front of you.

I think a smoke shop called "Still Legal" would be a good idea. Or perhaps "Smoke em if Ya Got Em"

Pogo said...

So where do you buy matches?

Drew W said...

Presumably, this place is just down the road from competing cigarette shops Butt Beautiful and None Butt The Brave.

Visiting Texas Tech? Tell them they should have kept Coach Leach.

What did Callista put in Newt Gingrich’s Bosco yesterday?

The Bain of his own existence

We all knew he was coming hard after Mitt with his newfound cache of funny money. But who knew he was planning to become a suicide bomber? His office in D.C. is on K Street — the K apparently stands for Kamikaze. He is now out Ron Paul-ing Ron Paul himself...

The only group that might want him as a speaker now is the Occupy Wall Street Alumni Association.

What do you suppose the Union Leader thinks of its Newt endorsement now? First he doesn’t even show up in the Granite State for 15 days after he gets the nod, and then in the closing hours he morphs into a butch Ariana Huffington...

Somebody said yesterday on the Internet that Rick Santorum is wearing a sweater vest, Rick Perry a hunting vest, and now Newt has put on a suicide vest. That about sums it up.

In WI cheap cigarettes are at the Indian reservations. Always attached to a casino. Which means when i stop there for cheap cigarettes they actually qet very expensive.

Place Your Butts Here

*Blows smoke ring*

Is that suggestive?

dbp said...

It used to be that about the only places you couldn't smoke was at a gas station, in an elevator or in church.

Now, what looks like a former gas station is devoted exclusively to smokes. Kind of an inversion of this

Following up on the William Daley post, I never knew there are at least two bands named "Major Healey," one hilariously an aging German Glam Band from the 1970s, evidently based in some manner on "I Dream of Jeannie".

Makes the whole Hasselhoff thing seem rational.

(Yes, I know Bill Daily is spelled differently.)

West Texas! Stop by and visit us in Abilene.

You should go see the Buddy Holly statue in Lubbock.

When I was in the USMC I had to deploy to Andrews AFB for a month. I got POV orders and drove there.

At that time they had stores in Virginia that sold liquor by the drink in drive through windows. You pulled up, ordered a whiskey and coke or whatever, then drove to the window and got your drink. Just like buying a burger.

And in Louisiana they used to sell liquor in gas stations. Don't know if they still do, kind of doubt it, but they did at one time.

"But oh they love to watch her strut
Oh they do respect her but(t)
They love to watch her strut"

I always thought there should be another "t" at the end of the second line.

My hometown of Lamesa, Texas, has a store with that same name on North 4th Street at North Avenue F (if I recall correctly), but I don't believe that's it. Perhaps there's a multi-city Texas franchise?

Beldar said...

Well, Google Maps' satellite image reminds me the Lamesa store is actually at North 4th and North Avenue G, across from Claiborne's Piggly Wiggly. Same name, same signage, but different building than in your picture, Prof. A.
