I do not know of any other store where a person can buy a gallon of milk, diapers, a can of spray paint, a shotgun and ammo, 15 live goldfish, a blender, a pair of spiderman underwear, a bottle of jack daniels, new tires put on the truck and a bag of manure, while you are waiting for your anti-depressant prescription filled.

Mean-Yote; I can dig up where that little general store up in the hills of WV that can do a lot more than that, trapping gear and tractor parts and a restaurant and dried cured hams and bacon, and... but the perscription would have to be filled somewhere else.

They had a nice collection of mining and logging loco's too!
