And they say everything in Texas is big!

Photo of the Day | Big Bottle, Little Arch | June 25, 2005 | St. Louis, MO



This monstrous bottle of Vess Lemon Lime soda was spotted in downtown St. Louis next to the highway. It made even the Arch look small ;)

Now I kinda wish I had made Velmer stop the car earlier that day so I could've snapped the huge Conoco sign that was as big as a hot air balloon, but oh well.

Great photo! Hey, I was just reading Velma's blog -- will you be posting photos of the abandoned buildings and railcar she mentioned?
Also, I think we need a report on the coffee in Missouri. Good? bad? Weak? Strong?

I will indeed be posting a bunch more photos from MO. I'm hoping to have time after work sometime this week, but it's kind of a full week what with just getting back and needing to catch up on a bunch of things at home and at work.

The coffee in MO overall was pretty good. Varied a lot depending on where you went. By that I mean what sort of establishment you went to, not so much what region or town. But that's normal anywhere; one doesn't expect to get great coffee at a fast food restaurant or a 7-11, for example.

But there were plenty of good cafes in the St. Louis area (Velms took me to her favorite, Kaldi's, and a couple others), some with free wireless.

There was apparently just one cafe in Jefferson City, but it was pretty good and they had free wireless. And air conditioning, of course ;) I can't remember the name of it, but the redhead will probably chime in to remind me.

There was a really good one in Columbia too (college town, so no surprise), which I also can't remember the name of.

And of course, Velma gets props for keeping me well-fueled at her dad's home, by brewing a pot for me each morning before waking me up. Aww, she's so good to me. 'Course, her dad's always got coffee brewing all day long anyway. My kind o' guy!
