Read the signs.
I would say that the man on the right is the owner and he has attitude!

It's hard to read the left one - I think it says:
"Not responsible for fire, theft or tornadoes" (?)

..Wonder what the IRS man said about the owner keeping no books? :-)

This was from Oklahoma.
The sign I believe says
"Not responsible for Fire, Theft or Tornadoes".
How does that help if the sign blows away?

The govt would love to do away with cash, so every transaction would have an audit trail. They figure the lost tax revenue in just Los Angeles is in the $Multi-millions.

As it is, any time you buy with any medium but green cash, the retailers, the cc companies and the govt know all about it. Grocery store purchases are the big tattlers of your lifestyle. That's why most of them have surcharges disguised as discounts if you don't identify yourself to them.

Ricks,

Every time I go to Ralph's (the super market, not your house) they ask me for my "Ralph's Card".

I reply "Oh, you mean my Ralph's Marketing Reasearch Card?" That usually gets a sarcastic grin from the checker.

Mike, it's a spy card.

That's precisely why I don't go to Ralph's. Last time I went for an item priced at $4, and when I went to check out, it was $6. The green cash price was in fine print. I walked out without the item, and went out of my way to Stater, where they don't spy if you pay cash.

I get the "discount" cards, but don't put in my true identity.

Here is the shop Eric Hylen and Andy Loso would have gone to in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Dated July 1922.

Not only no books, but very little overhead too.

That is Eric and Andy.

What do you suppose the round thing is that the man is holding on the sawhorse?
It looks like a wire wheel.

I enlarged the photo by doing the old "Ctrl +" trick and it looks like a wire wheel.

In the enlarged photo you can see that the sedan in the background has wire wheels on it also.

Ralph, Dillons (Kroger) is welcome to spy on the less than $5 a week I spend at their store. I buy almost all my groceries at the locally owned independent. No card there, just lower rices.

I think Ralphs and Vons are part of Kroger as well. It's a huge CONglomerate.

Strange kind of two tone paint scheme on that sedan, huh?
