Day 29: Tackling Tucson
Today! Yes, I WILL catch up tonight. A glitch-free day, hot but not so hot as the past few days. A/C working just fine but barely on interstates. I think this might have been some kind of record breaker for me. I managed to do Tucson just about in entirety. Plus a bunch of night shots which really means hardly any sleep tonight what with my homework.
Today started in Casa Grande so here’s a cute bar sign:
The place also has a neat painted wall sign — note the wooden door effect (if you’re new to this blog, clicking on the photos opens a larger sized photo):
I usually don’t shoot inflatables — but this guy at a car dealership intrigued and terrified me:
Off for some remote stuff — this one in Mammoth — Barbara’s Drive-in which is long-gone. This photo shows the other side which reveals that blob in the center to be a hamburger:
And on to Tucson for the remainder of the day and this blog. I never noticed this painted sign behind the Casa Molina restaurant:
The Quail Inn has a traditional neon sign…
… and this thing which I’ve never seen before. A freestanding, brick glass Vacancy / No Vacancy sign. I drove by later and saw that it was dark. So either they had no vacancies or, I suspect, it isn’t lit / used any more:
In the interest of getting a couple of hours sleep tonight — let’s just let these signs roll without any commentary from me. I don’t know why my blog posts and Flickr photos have been so heavily-weighted towards signs. Maybe just more of them and not-so-interesting buildings?
This one has me puzzled — KY like Kentucky? Or an abbreviation for something else?
Something tells me this motel is not all that paradise-like. But love their sign just the same. Funky or fancy signs — all good in my opinion!
And last one for the night –
So THERE! I did it!! Back on track with these blog posts & Flickr uploads. No more socializing nights off for me on this trip that’s for sure! Just too overwhelming to catch up.
Tomorrow — just a tiny bit more of Tucson and then moving on to Bisbee, Benson and all that.
