How the economy is affecting small towns

This is one of four car dealers in the small town nearest us. It was one of the longest runnings businesses around. Now it's gone. The auto bailout isn't going to help them any, and it isn't going to help the rest of the small dealers either. So while people in Detroit and all those other big cities whine about lost jobs if they don't get this money, our town has already lost them.

Oh my gosh what a sad sight!! Thanks for visiting our blog! Oh retail stores here are closing up before our eyes! Were left with lots of empty buildings of what used to be thriving business'.

Makes for a great opportunity for some! Hope to read you again!

Oh and I love your cat! We're owned by 2 fur kids also!
