    Dear Ms Lester
    There is indeed something a little odd going on here. A hint of the Pied Piper – will we ever see those people again?
    Oh dear…
    Yours ever

      Sinister, and then some. Although this type of thematic, impermanent structure was very popular here in the 20s.

    Bwahaha! Oh dear, who was the designer? The Child Catcher? Freaky deaky indeedy.

      You’ll notice none of those children have ventured in…

    They’re obviously wise to his dastardly plot… 🙂

    It is freaky. At the same time, I miss some of the disappearing quirks along the older highways. The Wigwam Motels along Rt 66. The Giant Oranges along 99 in central CA. I believe the giant walk-through brontosaurus is still down near Riverside – was talking to a trucker about it not long ago. We lost the Pollardville Chicken near Stockton not too long ago. In favor of what – the backs of the same old big-box stores. At least a giant Stephen Kingesque shoe like that one wakes you up and gets the brain working!

      Is the brontosaurus still there? I remember looking for it the last time I drove out there but I was distracted by a skyscraper in the middle of nowhere that turned out to be a casino… The big-box stores are making me insane, don’t get me started! Okay, you’re right. Better freaky and unique than homogenized and inhuman.

    Well, this is nightmare-inducing.
