supposedly, bugs think the ceiling is the sky and won't nest there. probably a bunch of other reasons, but that's one my daddy used.

Evidently the spiders are color blind....but you and the wife have the answer according to what I've been told. Although the Oregon reader's answer about warding off evil sprits is an interesting idea.

Very odd picture. At first glance it seems like an old decaying store front. But looking closer I see the newish Coke cooler, the satellite dish, neon sign, and I realize that modern capitalism is at work in this rustic place.

It's cool that you see these little tableaus....

That was exactly my take driving by this place. It was that neon "open" sign that caught my eye. I would have gone inside, but it was raining, and I had gotten a bit wet at the previous stop -- just did feel like getting wet again. I drove past, and a double-take at the signage, forced a u-turn and a picture.
