In the middle of the desert is Ludlow, on I-40. The top pic is the Murphy Building, built IIRC in 1923. The last time I took a look at it the front was still standing and it wasn't fenced off. The photo didn't turn out but it still says "Murphy Bros" on the side. The other pics are old US-66. The LA Times had an article on Ludlow back in the day and the Chevron station doesn't sell beer. The owner didn't want the blood on his conscious if drivers would buy beer at his station, drive and crash and die. I'm sure in the summer he could sell a rail car or two of beer a week. There's not much left to Ludlow.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
