You know you're in the Deep South because....
Store sign in Ramer, Alabama (between Troy and Montgomery)
Alabama! Alabama! And no spit cup at that. No dipping? what? ice cream, the cash register. Will you continue to head west?

DonnaK: Yeah, I wondered about the dipping too. Is it something you do with tobacco? No, not heading any further west for the moment (though Phoenix is a possibility in the future). Heading to Virginia next.

On the other hand, I think it's bit reassuring that there are still places in the country that have not been McDonaldized. Just an idea--Go find at Golden Arches place and see if you find a sign that was not issued by headquarters.

Did you have any problems with yuor car while there? See below for the curse of Sikes & Kohn's

Dipping, and don't ask how I know this, is a reference to moist smokeless tobacco; a plug of which is packed between the cheek and teeth. We northerners know it as chewing tobacco. Barf.

Donna: LOL, that's funny about the curse. I must have escaped it, no curse here.
Joanne: Thanks, Wikipedia Joanne! (And no, I won't ask how you know that....:o))
