Burma Shave Signs Do you remember the rhymes of the Burma-Shave signs from long ago? I finally did lol!! We would look forward to reading the little rhymes, posted on consecutive posts along America's highways. I know Mom and Dad enjoyed them. One would announce, "I think I see some Burma-Shave signs!" Then for a few moments, a truce in the war of which kid was taking up more than his allotted space on the back seat of the family Plymouth. The signs were addicting; like someone once said, "No one could read just one." We had to read the entire verse, and we knew that the final sign would read, "Burma-Shave".

The REAL America Before there were cell phones and super highways, drive-up or drive through, SUVs, DVDs, or MP-3s, before there was politically correct, and children as "friends;" before broad band, e-mail, and chat rooms; mini-malls, mega-stores; downsizing, upgrading, or out-sourcing; fast food or fast lane; walk-in's or take-out's; long before the next ten miles didn't seem to be a photocopy of the last ten miles, there was The Real America Photos The Library of Congress Documenting America Music the moment that could not last Mark Isham the old house J.A.C.

1999 Tennessee Roadkill Bill In March 1999 Tennessee's state legislature became the butt of jokes for debating a so-called 'Roadkill Bill.' The intent of the bill was to make animals killed on the state's highways the property of anyone who wanted the mangled carcasses, presumably for a meal. The bill stated, 'Wild animals accidentally killed by a motor vehicle may be possessed by any person for personal use and consumption.' Wrote one aghast New York Times columnist, 'In other words, it would be legal to eat roadkill. Legal to eat the thousands of squirrels, opossums, raccoons and rabbits that meet a painfully horizontal death every year beneath rubber tires. As if a state law were preventing anyone from scraping a happy meal off the asphalt. As if anyone would even dream of it.' In one of his Tonight Show monologues, Jay Leno comically suggested Tennessee's state motto ought to be changed to 'Fender-Licking Good.'

Howard Johnsons Restaurants Another iconic American business has ended. The last remaining Howard Johnson's restaurant--located in Lake George, NY--shut its doors in 2017. First established in 1954, at one time HoJo's numbered more than 600 restaurants. They were common sights along America's highways, often attached to motor inns. The chain is fondly remembered for its large portions of quality food and its wide variety of ice cream selections. However, competition from fast food restaurants took its toll. By 2009 only three Howard Johnson's restaurants remained. Here's a photo montage from the Lake Placid HoJo's.
