So close, yet so fart.
We're suckers for anything the least bit immature and idiotic when it comes to humor, so a detour had to be made on our last trip to see the fabled Passmore Gas & Propane tank between the towns of Hope and Salome on Highway 60 in southwestern Arizona. The landscape is beautifully desolate as we rip up the higway without another car in sight and then, off in the distance, could it be? Yes, I believe it is... a large oil tank with a poop joke painted on its side. An internet search reveals little about this company. There is a Passmore Gas & Oil company in Blythe, California, across the state line on I-10, but we're not sure who's the big cheese. And, who knows, this could just be a wild coincidence. There very well could be a family named Passmore that, in a flatch of inspiration, just happened to go into the gasoline business. It could happen. Who are we to pooh-pooh that theory?
