If you say so.

BTW, the closest Wawa to me is 97 miles away.

This reminded me of a poster I had back in the 90s when I was in middle school/high school.  Took this picture in 1997 while trying to use up a roll of film.

Shoemaker-Levy 9.  And yes, the walls from floor to ceiling were covered in glow in the dark stars.  Once I
applied the actual stars, I'd cut up the sheet they came on and add those pieces since that could double or triple the number of them.  Add in a 4 foot blacklight tube and you could almost read by them.

They used to be everywhere. Hmmm, is Stuckey's still even a thing? (clickety-click) Wow, they actually still exist, but the nearest one to me is about 300 miles away now. If I'd known, I'd have stopped at one when I took my eclipse trip. It's pretty well limited to the South these days.

None of the former locations in northern or central Illinois are still around. Most have turned into porn shops, usually still with the peaked roof intact as a dead giveaway.

As a kid, it was always great to stop at a Stuckey's. We only ever stopped when we were travelling and I always got a candy bar.  Good memories.  Sad to see them go but oh well.

Wawa is pretty decent.  Used to go there and get a decent hot lunch.  Not the best food, but reasonable.
