We are planning to drive cross-country in our RV beginning tomorrow. Enzo and myself are planning to hit the northern route on the way across, going up to Vancouver – then down the west coast to Palm Springs – then crossing back doing the southern route through AZ, NM, TX, LA and up through TN.

Any fading ads you can suggest we see, please let us know – or meet us for coffee! Take it away Ray!

South Dakotan Roundbarn – Gettysburg, SD – Bob Kisken

When I first started my round barn project I would take a photo, print it, mat it and add it to the folio. I have a hard time taking 3 or more before I get away. I just got back from SD, Minn, Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. This is one of the photos I took in SD. The barn in all its majesty sits on a gravel road. It appears to be getting old and worn out. I would love to live across from it and watch it as it ages. Perhaps I am getting goofy in my old age  but what the hell. cheers bob

Bob-
This is the Sloat Barn near Gettysburg, SD.  I have a great black and white print of this over my fireplace.  The barn was photographed as part of the book on old South Dakota buildings that was published in the last couple years.  The main author/editor was Jay D. Vogt, State Historic Preservation Officer, for South Dakota.

At one time, the owner wanted to jack it up and move it to town to have an antique business in but thankfully that didn’t happen but it sits in the middle of nowhere.

Take care,
Joy

Just want to share a freaky faded ad thing. I went for one of my long walks (it’s my thing) back in March and took a pic from 2nd Avenue and 34th of a faded sign. (I had seen it a million times and thought that now, it deserved a photo.) Later that week, quite by coincidence, I was scanning old family pictures, and I stumbled into a picture of my dad from the rooftop of his tenement flat on 2nd and 34th, proudly wearing his GI fatigues as he was about to go off to war (the big one, WWII). Let’s just say as I looked at my dad’s pic, I almost started to shake, and I went to see the pic I took just that previous weekend. I’m sure you’ll see what I mean.

Never Can Say Goodbye – Michael Jackson

Never Can Say Goodbye – Clifton Davis

I never can say goodbye
No, no, no, no I,
I never can say goodbye
Every time I think I’ve had enough
And start heading for the door
There’s a very strange vibration
Piercing me right to the core

It says turn around you fool,
You know you love him more
And more
Tell me why is it so?
Don’t wanna let you go

I never can say goodbye boy
Ooh ooh baby I never can say goodbye
No no no no no no
Ooh hey I never can say goodbye, boy
Ooh ooh baby
I never can say goodbye
[no no no no no no] hey

I never can say goodbye [never say goodbye, boy]
Oh no, no, no I,
I never can say goodbye
[never say goodbye, boy]
I keep thinking that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out
But there’s that same unhappy feeling,
There’s that anguish, there’s that doubt
It’s that same old dizzy hangup
I can’t do with you or without
Tell me why is it so? I don’t wanna let you go
I never can say goodbye boy, ooh baby
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no
Hey I never can say goodbye boy,ooh baby
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no

I never can say goodbye, boy,
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no
I never can say goodbye, boy
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no
[never can say goodbye, boy]
[never can say goodbye, boy]

I never can say goodbye, boy
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no
I never can say goodbye, boy
I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no
