Happy Valentine’s Day (belated or way early, take your pick)

Happy Valentine’s day (belated or way early, take your pick)

This is a bit late, I know, and totally out of character for me.  I rarely acknowledge Valentine’s Day.

In fact, the reason I got married on a Friday the Thirteenth in February of 1976 was to avoid doing it on the dreaded heart day.

But this posting I could not resist.  Yes it is a Valentine’s Day display, but it is much much more. 

It is a Valentine’s Day display built out of recycled things.

It is a Valentine’s Day display built out of recycled things in a store that specializes in selling recycled things.

AND (Drum roll please): It is a Valentine’s Day display built out of recycled things in a store that specializes in selling recycled things that is located in a recycled gas station.

And that’s what made it special to me,  in spite of the Valentine’s day motif.  I like recycled gas stations.

This one is located in Luverne, Aabama, and is one of several I found on a recent trip in the southeast.

My whole collection of recycled gas stations is here.
