I like this. Short and to the point.

But Dane, I just discovered ONE thing we don't have in common -- I'm not a Greatful Dead fan! :(

I hope you still love me anyway.

Dane said...

Oh, I'm not what you'd call a fan, I just like a few of their songs.

And of course I do!!

Looks more like a shed than a truck stop. Very cool sign but the way you've cropped this photo is creating some crazy kind of optical perspecitve/angle illusion where the roof slopes down on the far left at the edge of the house. Anyone else see that? It's like the tilt-a-house truck stop.

Dane said...

Oh that's weird. I hadn't noticed it until you mentioned it, but as you can better see here it's not my crop - the building cuts to a really odd angle there. I wonder why they built it like that? It is very tilt-a-house!


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.
