People in central PA are very practical.  If you're going to charge more than 50 cents for something in a coffee shop, you better get more than 5 ounces of it!  No matter how bad it is!

But as they say, when in Rome, order Espresso.  When in Portage, get a Nehi.

Wow! That DOES look similar!

I'll go back just so I can witness the horrors of what they call a latte.

It's a half gallon of milk with a drop of coffee for color, and 14 pumps of diabeetus syrup.

I'm replacing the feed mill with a scrap yard. Stager's Scrap Yard is still there today, but I looked in to how long it was there. My high school band director found this out for me:

Quote
Struck gold today. I spoke with Gary D. Stager, 81 years old, one of several sons of the Patriarch who started the scrap yard. The other son is Phil, 94 years old. The scrap yard was started well before WWII. Gary lived in the family house next to the tracks until it was torn down and the greater scrap yard emerged. No other business was located on that site.

So, that works for me. I love scrap yards and I can park old saggy gons there.
