Although this glass doesn't say "Arizona" on it, it was purchased at a big truck stop and souvenir stand in that state just outside the California border on the first day of my road trip across the country with my wife-to-be. This would have been May 15th, 2004. So why buy it? I liked this glass because it was one of those old gag images I had seen before on vintage postcards in my childhood trips to the desert. I had always found those appealing, probably because the art reminded me of comic strips. It was because the state's name wasn't displayed on this glass that inspired me to only look for glasses where you could tell where they were purchased from thereon out.
