While driving around the east side of Santa Rosa on Montgomery Dr. last Friday we came upon a Flying A gas station. (my wife just mentioned that SHE was the one who spotted it - I trained her well) I didn't realize that they were still in operation. It was good to see !

The business is part of the Royal Petroleum Group

And yes, it is great (IMO) that the "Flying A" name is still around!

I heard that we can put their remains in an old oil can, if the heart attacks take them. I even know somebody who can put the lids on the can. LOL...

Give me a break guys. I'm only the person who was warped enough to type what others were thinking...

ROTFLMAO!!!

Actually. The kindle has been returned. It took SIX weeks, yes SIX weeks, for S-Girl to get her refund. Amazon has promised me a phone call about the whole situation... And still I wait. Barnes & Noble however, has made a LOT of sales, because of Amazons INCREDIBLY poor customer service...

I think you'd be surprised to find that there are operating versions of almost all of the original brands to be found. Whether it's a one-off small local chain or larger, they're out there.
