After 2 hours they said, "you are bleeding all over 5 channels but this is the most entertaining thing I have heard all day!" Soooo funny, she died and stopped talking on the CB

A & W Root Beer stand, year of photo unspecified, but looks to be 30s. Photo was most likely taken in either Lodi or Sacramento. Roy Allen began the business in 1919 and took on a partner by the name of Frank Wright in 1922. (Hence A and W). Visited one in South Bend, Indiana all the time growing up. Wonder if that was Frank Lloyd Wright???
