I have a theory...this store was named by a foreigner...to the English language! So, do you see the sign of this store??? Decent Food Stop. Well, any American or native English speaker...might laugh at this name, but when I saw the sign, it made me think of all the times we might have spoken something in Russian, thinking that we knew what we were saying, but a Russian might have said..."Well, you sort of said something else, but we understood you anyway." Can't you imagine someone learning the word " decent " to mean good, but I know decent has a negative connotation of "not the greatest-but ok"...but that owner of the store just thought...I want to be a good food stop!!! HA, so let's name it decent food stop!! Ok, so, maybe it didn't happen like that, but it's fun to think you understand where it might have come from. This store is down the street from where we live...we will always smile when we pass it on the way to church.
I must say that we are glad to have taken the picture a month or so ago, because, it has been repainted and redone...no longer bearing the name, but we have evidence of the original Decent Food Stop!
