About a quarter mile from my Mothers house sits an abandon Zephyr gas station and cafe. The old place was already empty and slowly deteriorating when my parents moved to that stretch of the famous Old Route 66 back in the mid seventies.
I took this photo of the old sign in March of 2011, but, for some dumb reason, never did photograph the decaying building. When I did a google search I found quite a few shots of both this sign and the building going back about ten years. Most of them were done when the sign was hiding behind and overgrowth of vines and weeds. I also found that a artist named Tripp has done a watercolor painting of the old building that was very good.

I captured the following sign during my last trip to Omaha. It was nighttime so it is not the best shot but I wanted to share it because I have never seen another like it. The moveable sign was in front of the Bag and Save supermarket near my sisters house.
Nice to know that someone is thinking of us old folks. I see "expectant mothers" signs around here but never "Senior Citizens."
