When I get off the Interstate 75 to head home, I take the exit between Saginaw and Bay City. There is an old abandoned faded orange and blue Howard Johnson’s restaurant, longing for the day when hungry travelers stopped by for a bite to eat. A few days ago I saw an excavator sitting in front of it, so I figured I better take a photo of it before it’s gone. According to Wikipedia, the restaurant chain was the largest sit-down restaurant chain in the united states during the 60s and 70s. I never really ate there much so I guess I don’t miss them that bad but I sure do miss Bill Knapps. As they say, ” the only constant is change” I wonder what will happen to Applebee’s now that it’s the largest sit-down chain.
