McConnellsville, Ohio - cutest little town you ever saw; the closest thing they have to a chain store I could find was a lone Krogers that looked like it had been built in 1955 and never touched since.

Glen Campbell - Southern Nights

Campbell's as in Campbell's Soup? Interesting. I'd think this was a chain too but I've never seen one here in St Louis. We still have Wonderbread Stores that of course sell other things besides Wonderbread... haven't seen a Dolly Madison Thrift Store in ages though. Looking forward to that shot of Krogers.

Did you try the Green Pepsi?

Oh, I'm fairly sure this is an independent. Unfortunately, I left too late in the day to get a postable picture of the Krogers I had to shoot into the sun) but I can email you the pictures if you really want to see them.

... green Pepsi?

You make me want to go to all these places...

>... green Pepsi?

Joke. Look at the photo again. I was trying to think of an Eric Bana crack too but came up empty...

Dane said...

Aw, Karen, you come out and I'll drive you around. :)

Steve: Ohhh! I see. I wasn't paying attention.

Sparkleneely said...

Someday I will!!!

Can we drive around and listen to your fab taste in music???

Dane said...

Karen, I would absolutely love that! We can hit the thrift stores and you can help me rebuild my Nancy Drew collection.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
