Anger causes you harm and old "filing stations"

Your Anger Causes You Harm

The Talmud states: "When a person becomes angry, he acquires only his anger."

There are usually no benefits in becoming angry at others. Becoming angry merely causes harm to your health and makes you feel miserable. Your anger does not help you, and the person you are angry with usually pays less attention to what you are saying than if you'd have said it tactfully and patiently.

Love Yehuda

Over 60 slides by America's most beloved painter Norman Rockwell.

These are wonderful......especially the green-trimmed Texaco "filling station" that sold "coal oil" (for oil-burning lamps) from the square green-painted tank that was pumped by hand, of course.
Some are abandoned, some are restored and many are still in use.

In the next picture, notice the kid jumping on the bell hose.
Did YOU ever do that? And notice the truck in the washing bay.
The only automation inside the washing bay was Hands and Sweat...

55 or 56 Chevy...???   (56)

Notice the yellow truck â€&brkbar; and do you remember Esso gasoline ?

A lot of people lived in the back of the station they owned...

Ever heard of Mansfield tires???

Thunderbird ??? With fender skirts???

Not sure what name brand of gasoline this was???

Remember these corner stations? And the COKE boxes??

Oh my.....the flying horse

Canyon Service...notice the neon GAS sign....

Notice the prices on the next one.
Yes that's only $ . 34 for Hi test
And $ .28 for regular.
Oh, don't forget the 9/10% of a penny.  (That was the gas tax!)

One pump and I think thats an Oil Pump or grease container ??

I like the Flag....

Standard Oil Company and Miller tires....I bet a lot of stories were told in
that ben ch.... Another flag over to the right...

Can you see the Quaker State sign? What about Route 66 sign?

And with a fill-up you got the gas pumped for you, your windshield cleaned, oil & fluids checked, tires checked,
a free map, if you wanted it, S&H Green Stamps.
  You also got a five-cent soda and a bag of peanuts.
Oh yes, it was a penny for the bottle unless you had an empty one under the seat..
How many years has it been since anyone said that they were going to the "filling station"?
