Mom's Motel

I'd seen this old vintage sign on flickr while searching out "neon" in my area. I tried to look up an address but there isn't one on account that there is no motel, just a lonely rusty old sign. About three days after I'd searched for a physical address (and chalked it off to probably never finding it) I happened to spot it along hwy 99. "THERE IT IS!" I blurted out to my husband. He rarely asks questions anymore, he knew we were making an unscheduled detour. We pulled off the hwy and risked life and limb crossing an on/off ramp and trekking through an empty lot to get close enough to it.

 

Thank you ghostbones for providing this awesome texture.
