Never forget when we were in Springfield,Illinois,and ate at Howard Johnson's,which was across the street from a funeral home.
Everyone in the family thought that was funny.We were coming from Alaska and headed towards Maryland,since my dad got sent to Fort George Meade,Md
by the AirForce.He was going to be working at NSA.
We had Howard Johnson's around here,but they are all gone,many moons ago.
There was even a TeePee Motel and steakhouse on Austin Hwy.in San Antonio,both disappeared in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
Saw somewhere an article about the TeePee Motel in Wharton,Tx which has been restored.
