One more for this thread from my recent NH travels.  This one in Sandwich.



I prefer my sandwiches NOT to be recycled.

Would you like compost or trash sandwiches? We serve those here.

Apparently in the 31st century, sandwiches will indeed be made from recycled sandwich remnants. Leela says so.

That's in a thousand years. But we can stop that future. Right?

Somewhere in Kentucky there is a road called Gravel Road, which is paved. It is possible it was originally Gravel hence the name.
Old Shell Road in Mobile was originally paved with sea shells, hence the name.

Found this on the AARoads' Facebook page. This aptly-named road is on I-90 in Idaho.

I see a McDonald's and a big-box building. I take it the pleasant view is further down the road? :D

I-85 in Virginia crosses under Poor House Road (no interchange available). I know this area of Virginia is economically depressed, so I wonder if there's any connection there.

Thanks for the find. I had no idea that a "poorhouse" was an actual nonslang word for an actual place that was not related to gambling.

Saw a picture a co-worker posted standing under a street blade in Louisville. The street's name? Nanny Goat Strut.

I had to look it up.  And I found 2 blocks away is Billy Goat Strut Alley.  https://www.google.com/maps/place/Nanny+Goat+Strut,+Louisville,+KY/@38.2523237,-85.7385031,17z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x886972c5018bcf2b:0x1d7a259138e9815f?hl=en

With your 650$ movie ticket. Movie tickets will be 650$ in the future.

But that's only the discounted rate for senior citizens and Supreme Court justices.
