I too have been mesmerised/fascinated by Hardw. Imagine my surprise, on entering the town of Dauphin Manitoba from the South and, looking up, seeing on the second story side of a building Scott's Hardw as plain as day.

More puzzling, I recently watched The Wild Bunch - with Marlon Brando and Lee Marvin. As the gang of bikers sweep into town they are observed by two citizens (Mayor and Police Chief?) who are standing in front of a shop window with HARDW written on it. The camera pans past it quickly but it was like an electric shock. I can't get over the fact that I puzzled over Hardw in Kliban's books in the 80s, saw the sign in Dauphin around 99, and watched The Wild Bunch last year (2008).

What does this mean, and why am I still making these connections? Could there be more?
