My parents' favorite gas station to stop in was Mobil with the fascinating, glorious Pegasus logo.
My mother recorded the price per gallon (usually something like 69 cents), the mile marker on the odometer, our location and destination. This was in a series of tiny notebooks that fit in the plam of her hand. The other things she kept written notes on were recipes in a green tinted spiral notebook, her monthly cycle on a small funeral home (or was it insurance agency?) calendar, short to do lists or what was done lists on the back of envelopes. She said she kept charts of what her babies ate, when they nursed, etc, but she gave that to a sister-in-law and never got those back.
But before I sign off a few more flamingo pictures closer to home amidst trumpet vines
and peeking out from behind a chair. xoxoxo.
