|The Burma-Shave ads were really something. They made me think of my dad, who has a fondness for cool, vintage things. These advertisements were the type where there would be several roadside signs in a series each with one line of a rhyme. Each series ended with the Burma-Shave logo. Such as: "Violets are Blue - Roses Are Pink - On the Graves - Of Those - Who Drive and Drink - Burma-Shave" or "To Kiss - A Mug - That's Like a Cactus - Takes More Nerve - Than It Does Practice - Burma-Shave" If you want to see some more there is a website I found dedicated to these Burma-Shave jingles.|

HMV Day 13: Homeward Bound via Route 66
With a mix of emotions we woke before dawn on our last day of megavacationing. This was the day to make the trek back to Vegas where we'd whisk away on plane and land home again in Montana. It seemed like quite an epic distance to traverse in comparison with some of our leisurely drives and hikes in the previous week. We were both sad to see our southwestern adventures ending and excited to sleep in our own beds.
