Random stuff seen in USA

Have found some more photos on the camera phone, from last week in Denver, Colorado.  

I often forget I’ve taken these pics – quick-snaps of something funny or interesting :

About 1/2 hour after driving off, we stopped into a petrol station to grab a drink, and noticed that you can buy beer – at a petrol station – only if you’re over 21 of course.

The other odd thing is that my friend was “carded” to buy cigarettes – even though he is over 30 – he had to go back to the truck to grab his passport !

The gloves are off in the battle of the burger – I saw this poster at the airport, basically saying “our burgers are bigger” :

More T-Shirts

A shop in Denver had many, many comedy T-Shirts, which I just took a picture of the best ones – rather than buy them !    (didn’t have any room in my suitcase)
