Picture Perfect Winter 2013 Week Four "Nostalgic" Theme

So many times I wish things were the way like they use to be,
When a dollar would take you to the movies, buy your popcorn,
and drink and still have a little jingle in your pocket.
When gas was 25 cents a gallon, the only video game was a
pinball machine.
When a trip to the hardware store would take over an hour,not because
of the lines, or distance, but because everyone there was a friend and
it was as much an event as it was a shopping trip. After watching a video
someone from back home posted on Youtube It made me miss home and
how things use to be.
This weeks image was taken on a lonely bit of Highway in South Carolina
on US Coastal 17 the Main Road long before the Interstate 95 came through.
So lets all join in this week and wax
