It was just a matter of time

With various dollar stores all over the place, it was just a matter of time until two of them ended up as shopping center neighbors.

I sort of imagine the two store managers standing in the parking lot hurling insults at each other and was a little sad that was not happening when I was there…

Signs of the Times

Two years ago, signs like this wouldn’t have made the least bit of sense. One year ago, they would have been outside in the restaurant parking lot so people knew where to part for their to-go order to be brought out to them.

It’s nice to see them relegated to the restroom hallway this year. And think how nice it’ll be when they are gone completely.

Those garage doors really do lean over to the left. It’s not your eyes. Or your monitor. Or my camera-holding skills.

A precarious situation

My friend Donna Catterick and I spent some time exploring this old ice house. We’d walked under those tanks a few times before she noticed how much they were leaning.

It was an interesting coincidence that we were through shooting at almost the very same time she pointed out the precarious situation…

Arm Supply

Signage nearly always amuses me. Unless it’s got terrible errors, like using apostrophes to make something plural. Those signs just piss me off.

There used to be a pharmacy here in Lubbock that had interesting items listed on its marquee sign. The best one I ever saw had “Toilet Paper – 12/$3 – Listerine – $1 – Wheelchair – $399.” Because mouthwash and wheelchairs are both impulse purchases.

But I digress.

This place, from what I read, is where you’d want to go if you need livestock or perhaps another arm or two. That’s good to know. I guess.
