Blue nonsign of OK and Coast to Coast Livin.
I didn't write these particular messages, but I too have thought of "coast to coast livin" as being what I do, and I have written this on things. Sometimes I write "nonstop talkin" on things also, and "dinner eatin." However, I only ever write "OK" on pap…

The name of this business is Wave Cigarettes, Pyramid Cigarettes, Wings Cigarettes, and Swisher E-Cigarettes.
Wave and Pyramid and Wings are the only brands people around here can afford. People switch to e-cigarettes after they're too sick to smoke ordinary cigarettes.

Cowboy drinking establishment of this urbanized region of the southern Appalachians.
Here was an eastern Tennessee idea of a place to go. Imagine how vulnerable a person would be who had drunk to dangerous excess at this place late at night. Vulnerable to what kinds of depredations!
