Small Town Life

Remember, back in the "old days," when people used to actually come out of the gas station and pump your gas for you? And washed your windows!

Then self-serve came around, and it was cheaper, so no one, except old people had their gas pumped by an attendant. And your windows? Forget it.

So this is Corky's. It's a full-service gas station/car wash/laundromat. It has the cheapest gas in town (unless you drive 4 miles to the next town and go to Costco). You can pump your gas yourself, but why would you? Remy comes out, pumps your gas, washes your windows, chats about the weather -- I love it! I always buy my gas there, unless I have a 50 cent per gallon discount at the Conoco at the Loaf & Jug. Otherwise, Remy gets my business. I feel like it's one of the last vestiges of small town life.

I hope it sticks around for awhile.
