I suppose that this one appeals to me on the art deco level. That, plus the fact that, even though the parking lot was nearly empty, there was No Vacancy.
They knew that you were coming, not1word. You'd better traveled under a fake name. Joy Bubbles would have been a good choice.
Ah, of course. Thanks for the good advice, although, I don't think that I'll be using it.
It isn't a motel anymore, not1word. It's turned into apartments. Because it's a historic building, they kept the neon sign.
As I was leaving, I noticed a guy sitting in the shadows watching me. He had the look of a full-time dweller, so you may not be all that wrong. You're pretty smart, Perfesser Norrel.
well, I like the fact that the sign emphasizes 'TV' over 'Room' although now I'm thinking it must have been meant to draw people in with the promise of a TV in their room, while it was really only a group TV Room.
yet another nice neon!
lol, kamaly. Reality TV before it even existed, eh? That's a funny take on the TV room, I didn't even think about it like that. Honestly, looking at that sign must have confused generations of passers-by, with its rather disjointed arrangement of their offerings. "Well, Marge, this'n here's got all that, plus TV!" Glad you liked the neon, just the same.
TV also stands for transvestite, i think. hopefully, this was not offered up with the cost of a room. certainly not in Boise.
Larry, sleep little Les Bois has its share of odd behavior, and I'm sure that there are plenty of TV's wandering about freely. That may be why this is called a Mo-tel...as in a no-tell mo-tel? Some sort of shorthand?
Hmmmm, seems to me if I were a sheriff I'd be staking this place out. Looks like just the sort of place where this gang might hole up after a little adventure at the local camera store!
Well, your instincts might be right, kamaly. Good thing you're on the case.
