Thought I would share this picture from my archives, though it has little to do with biking. I see this on one of my regular rides and always get a kick out of it. I suppose every place holds its share of rednecks and the owner of the sign is just trying to make a living.

That's awesome! It reminds me of "Wanda's Taekwondo&Tanning Salon" down the road in N Georgia, or "Stubb's Prosthetics" here in town.

I wonder if they take human client. I've been a bit off my feed lately.
Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

The missing letters remind me of a venerable local automotive repair business, "Coast Brake and Wheel." For a several-week period a few years ago, their neon sign read, "Coast Bra heel." I kept meaning to ask Gene whether his 50-year-old family business had diversified into women's apparel.
