Exacly right too. I remember Ethel didn't always mean that was the brand of
gas you were getting it was the grade and that's why they had the glass
bowl on the top of the tank.. make sure it was clean and the right color.
So when people ask directios and I tell them to take a right at the Flying
A Gas Station I mean the Mobil station. But that was later on too.
As for electricity I'm sure lots of folks out in SD still don't have it as
some of my friends out there don't even have running water yet last time I
wrote and read. Same thing in AZ and NM... but it sure is nice country.
"You Take The High Notes" http://helius.carroll.com/p/leo_g/ There is a
difference between "dealers" and musicians that love not only the sound of
music but the tools which make it possible for people to play music. It's
important to set things free so they may ultimately find their way to
their intended parties. I am especially interested in Musical Instrument
History and technical data. Please email me with interesting links. Thank
