    Great shot, I continue to look for old vintage service stations to serve as a back drop for calendar shoots. Picture perfect. . .

    Great Picture.
    Hopefully we can stop there for a photo op on the way home from the IM this Summer.
    Plan to come home via Historical Route 66.
    Thanks Gary
    Good Roads

Usually applied to a wood frame building as siding and using morter or more often what appears to be asphalt. It was cheap, lasted forever, insulated well, and needed hardly any maintenance. The rock can be found in a range of colors from light tan to dark brown, and the irregular pattern supposedly resembles giraffe markings.
    Actually the 'Spencer' building in the photo above might be entirely rock.
    Interesting, Dwain. Thanks. Bob

    Yes, Gary; neat picture.

    Cheap gas on Route 66

    On my way home from Mt. Vernon today my son and I stopped in Spencer, MO for a photo op.

    Gas is still pretty cheap in Spencer!
