Lucille's


Hydro, Oklahoma


This pretty much tells about Lucille's


I like this shot for it really shows that "long ribbon of highway" Woody Guthrie referred to in his song This Land is Your Land.


Playing around here, cropping the above photo to show mainly the road which only just highlights the oncoming traffic in the rain.


I like too that this gas pump has no space for a dollar amount in the price.

And then to think that it was years ago the only way to go and you where glad to see a gas station like this in the middle of nowhere.

I remember the song but sung by another singer, I think it was Pete Seeger. Love to see the grantness of your country, those endless roads.

wow, I love your first photo, with the tree branches looking like a bad head of hair shooting out of the building, and the pair of juicy orange pumps. excellent shot! I like the ribbon of highway too - that (Rt. 66) must be the equivalent of a now-frontage road with the interstate running alongside? One could purchase 9 bucks worth of gas with that pump. way more than would fill a tank with those prices. Love the Will Rogers quote too. great post John. I truly enjoyed this. how's Sinbad adjusting to being off the road? sleeping I bet...have a great day you guys.
