My brother and I would beg for a toy. One of the best things we ever got was a road game that looked like bingo cards with little orange slide windows to cover things you'd see along the trip. Railroad crossing sign? slide. Cow? slide. Volkswagen? slide. Police car? Bingo!!
"Every trip’s a pleasure, when you stop at Stuckey’s" ...
Road signs were placed all along America's highways going back to the 1930's. They welcomed travellers with clean restrooms, fresh hot food and plenty of choices of the candy they were famous for. Daddy would gas up the car and then off we'd go again...this time with sticky treats to keep us occupied for miles and miles!
*Stuckey's can still be found and you can even order treats online now at http://stuckeys.com
