  8. ^^^^^ Kid puking next to the liquor store .... yeah, I kind of felt that way after my first "whiskey" (why I cannot even smell Yukon Jack, much less drink it). I called it "Puke On Jack" after that night.

    ''The Saddle Store is a historic general store and gas station on the east side of Arkansas Highway 289 in the hamlet of Saddle in eastern Fulton County, Arkansas. It is a two-story wood frame vernacular structure with a gable roof, set parallel to and near the road. The south-facing main facade has a centered entry flanked by sash windows, with two pairs of sash windows on the second level. The store was built in 1916, and served as the community's general store until 1988. In addition to its retail function, its upstairs space also served as a community hall, housing elections and social functions. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.'' source: Wikipedia

    Gulf had a taste in the 20s for insanely baroque stations -- they got the idea from Atlantic, which was doing the same thing at the time:

    New York City tilted a bit that way in some early Subway station entrances like this one:

    There's a similar one in Astor Place that has pretty much survived intact:
