Thursday Thirteen

Our Pennsylvania trip was five days long - two of those, however, were driving. One cannot really take in an area in three days, but we did our best. This kind of wraps up the last of the photos I am sharing of this vacation.

These are shots of a company that bills itself as The World's Largest General Store.

I don't know if it is the world's largest, but it had a *lot* of stuff. These were canned goods.
 
Life-sized statues for
purchase are not things I
see often. They may
be available in my area, but
not in places I frequent.
 

Several stores had these plaques with sayings on them.
They seem like a good project for someone
 who is interested in crafts. 
 
This handsome fellow was on sale
 for $799, originally $2,049.
I wanted to bring him home
 but my husband said no.
 
He was not on sale.
 
I say, I say, now who could
pass up a picture
of Foghorn Leghorn?
 
Zoltar the fortune teller told me my fortune for $1.
He said, "If you think you can, you can, and if you
think you can't, you can't. Either way, you are
right." Then a little ticket popped out that told
me I needed to learn to talk less and listen
more (which rather surprised me because I've
always been told I was a pretty good listener).
Unfortunately, I lost the little ticket.
 

Dracula did not scare me. The price tag on him did, though.
 
These are just pictures to round out the 13 -

I was stunned to see Gulf gas stations in Pennsylvania. I thought Gulf went out of business a long time ago. But apparently there are still some franchises left.

 
 
We kept driving by this red metal dinosaur, and I finally took a picture of him because how often do you see a red metal dinosaur?

 
This old typewriter was in the window of the book store in Jim Thorpe, PA.

 
 
And finally, we found parking meters all over the place. We don't have parking meters around here.
 
Fortunately, we had a lot of quarters.
 



That's our trip to Pennsylvania. A race track, a guitar store, pretty scenery, a bit of history, a little shopping, and some unusual stuff.

Now back to our regularly scheduled pictures of Autumn, deer, and whatever else wanders through the front yard.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 469th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  4. I have a sign like those that says "Home is Where the Story Begins." I could love an old manual typewriter but fear it would be hard to find ribbon for it.

  6. What? You dh doesn't want some warrior standing around in the living room? Tsk. :)

    We had parking meters up until this year. Now they've converted everything to the same kind of parking kiosks I saw in Whister, Canada a few years ago.
