Sitting inside the dark station, George waited listlessly for Tom’s Wrecker Service to arrive and tow away the Studebaker resting out front. Interstate 40 had managed to evaporate most of the business along this historic Route 66 stretch of highway. Vending machines had been removed this morning. All the tool chests were empty. The property was up for sale. The screen door no longer popped to announce a customer entering. All that remained this quiet morning were memories lingering from fifty years of running a service station.

Over-worked and under-rested, the aging men of Turvey’s Corner began their early-morning drive to St. Louis, twenty-three miles down Highway 30. Around the first bend of the highway out of town, they found a welcoming stop at Jerry’s Texaco. The bell cables clanged as the sedans rolled up to the gas pumps, and Steve, the young attendant, pushed aside his college books to hustle out and service the customers. The aroma of coffee brewing inside usually lured the men out of their cars and inside for caffeine stimulation and the exchange of local news stories. Visits here always seemed to make the workday go a little better.

He woke up early in Walsenburg, Colorado. Six months as a mechanic at Sandy’s Service put enough money in his pocket to hitch a ride back to St. Louis where blues music was waiting to be played. The final nudge to hit the road arrived yesterday in a postcard from a woman convincing him it was time to come back home.
