Anybody ever stayed at a Motel six when they were $6. No phone, no TV, extra if you wanted those luxuries. And cable TV, forgedda about it back then. LOL




Never stayed in one back then. I'm sure I could find ways to keep myself entertained despite the lack of TV.

Yup, that was the cheapo joint in the 60's. Six bucks
a night was cheap even then. Didn't last long, went up
to $8 within two years.

When I first looked at that picture, for some reason my mind only noticed the money up on the pillow. I thought "Hmmm... pretty cool."

Then I took a second look.
You serious, Clark?

There was a Jack in the Box next to the Motel 6 I stayed in. I went thru the drive-in and my greyhound must have thought we were at Der Weinerschnitzel. When the girl who took my order did not return to the window with the customary free hotdog, he jumped past me and into the drive-in window. Thank God he did not hit her on the way in !

And was it enough to check out of whatever
motel-ish place you were staying out and
go somewhere nicer ?

It looks like there is $19,000 there. I'm going to guess he hit a $20,000 Royal Flush and kept the other $1,000 to play with.
