Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Oh, for the Golden Days of the Lubritorium!

Headed up to Lowell to watch the Spinners game in the rain yesterday. We lasted four whole innings, which is 4 more innings than I wanted to spend in the rain, thank you. But hey, it’s all about the kids, isn’t it? So when my 74 year old mother became insistant that we go to the game, we went to the game.

While we were waiting at a light in Lowell, I looked over at the gas station with the “It Kicks” sign (see my photostream on Flickr for that one), Haffner’s, I spotted this sign on the wall of the garage: Lubritorium. I think that may be the greatest word in the history of words about places you can go to get lubed. No, really.

  1. Yup. We had a service station in Dorchester that sported a "lubritorium". We kids always laughed and laughed when we saw the sign.
