Subject: RE: Favorite Town names
there is a Climax in Colorado, too..they used to have the problem of every college kid that passed by decided to steal the road signs for dorm rooms till they welded them to the posts or something. ..(and down the road is Fairplay...used to be jokes about getting to Climax without going thru Fairplay)

and I remember Dr. Phillips, Florida ....and it is fun to say out loud towns from the 4 corners of the USA, Tallahasee, Walla-Walla, Kennebunk and Cuckamonga...with Oshkosh and Hell to hold down the middle.

(Who remembers the conductor on the Jack Benny program chanting, "Anaheim, Azuza, and Cuc....a-monga"?)....and I had a kids story book when I was young with a railroad called the "Weehawken, Hoboken and Troy"

There is also Monkey's Eyebrow,AZ and a little town in Kansas called "Gas" which I have driven thru many times.
