    Your pictures nicely spell out AMERICA

      Thank you. It’s the one culture I really understand and my husband is a life-long hot dog aficianado πŸ™‚

    The only Americana missing is the converted streetcar/railway diner. πŸ˜€

      We have a bunch of them around here. The Worcester dining car was born here, so I guess it should be no surprise you’ll find quite a few of them

    Absolutely love the American Diner experience. Next you should photograph The Waffle House. Oh, and on a Saturday evening very late at night. πŸ™‚

      We don’t have a waffle house, but I want to get back to the hot dog place at night. You should SEE that neon sign lit up. It’s something else. The mustard actually drips πŸ™‚

    Great entry for this challenge!

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I would feel odd trying do commentary (photo or otherwise) on someone else’s culture, but this is mine. And diner’s are a uniquely American institution.

    AWESOME! I love the all-American diner! We use to frequent on when we lived at Panama City Beach. Nothing like ’em…a true step back in time! Wish I could reblog on Awakenings! Mind if I just use your pictures, post and link back to your blog? Of course, you already have the photos watermarked.


    • Teepee12 April 26, 2013 / 8:22 pm

      Please do πŸ™‚ I love diners too. I sent them to you! Let me know that you’ve gotten them!


      • Teepee12 April 26, 2013 / 9:01 pm

        There’s one missing because I don’t have the original on this computer (it’s on my desktop and this is the laptop), but maybe you can grab that one off the blog. I’d have to go dig around for it in the other room and we’re in the middle of “elementary” with all the dogs sitting on my feet. Cannot distub the furry kids!

        But this has two that aren’t in the gallery I posted.


        • catnipoflife April 26, 2013 / 9:12 pm

          Thank you! I know about the furry friends! Foxie is in my lap as I type on the laptop…Do I need a bigger lap? Nope!


          • Teepee12 April 26, 2013 / 9:13 pm

            Our dogs sleep with their heads on our legs. Our legs fall asleep, but we don’t want to move and disturb the little fur people πŸ™‚


    • Teepee12 April 26, 2013 / 11:25 pm

      Thanks. The hot dogs were good too πŸ™‚


    • Teepee12 April 26, 2013 / 11:27 pm

      Thank you. It came together better than I had hoped.

    I’ve never seen a real diner but it looks like this one hasn’t changed for decades.


    • Teepee12 April 27, 2013 / 10:15 am

      It hasn’t changed at all since I first saw it about 25 years ago and I understand it looks pretty much the same as it did in the 1930s.

    We need to pay a visit to the diner a couple of towns away and see if measures up to our expectations. Just one word: PICKLES!! Great post!


    • Teepee12 April 27, 2013 / 2:39 pm

      Thanks. We need to go to the Miss Mendon over by Imperial, too.
