Nigel's distress - Shell SD September 2001

We stopped in Shell SD (pop. 54) so Julie could make a phone call. After seeing a neon open sign and then investigating this store through it's windows, I thought it must be either a joke or run by a mad person. This photo doesn't adequately capture the disarray inside, but by chance does capture my mixture of emotions. Turns out it wasn't a joke, just a small, sweet and utterly senile old lady proprietor.
