    Just took this about 30 min ago. I suspect it's the same place.

    And yes, they still gave great burgers and fried chicken. Just not for that price antmore.

  11. This was sitting out (for sale) in front of what used to be the Chevy dealership in Willow Springs, Missouri. Seemed like a reason to take a picture...

    That is a REALLY nice looking Chevy truck. One that even I would consider buying-and I am a ford guy.

    This was right up the road from me; we used to visit it when we were kids.

    They had a live elephant in a cage in the parking lot, out by the highway for advertising the zoo.

    For a few dollars, a guest could actually get in a cage and box with a chimpanzee; the monkey wore boxing gloves and was trained to pummel the hell out of anyone who entered....if you beat him, you won a prize. To my knowledge, no one ever did.

    You can imagine what the SPCA would say about this kind of entertainment today, lol.

  15. When I drove by this the other day I didn't realize it was now abandoned. Someone posted a series of photos of its current state to FacePlace. It had nice bathroom floors back in the day...

    There was a Stuckey's not too far from my grandparents' house when I was a kid....so I sure ate my fair share of them growing up.

    We had a Horne's, too... Stuckey's competition... which also sold pecan logs.

    I still pick up a pecan or peanut log, now and then, on our travels up the interstate in Georgia...the flavor doesn't seem to be the same as it was when I was a kid, but it could just be my ancient taste buds.
