A 50's Diner~

It all started with thinking about what
to serve for Mother's Day.

Mamaw's favorite meal? Burger & Fries!

Atmosphere? Hey Daddy-O! what about
a diner, a 50's diner?

Hung out the shingle and cranked up the Juke Box.

Used records, aka 78's for chargers, but I had to
make new labels to fit the occasion.

Designed a menu with Moondoggy's cool car on the cover.
Onion Rings
Coke Floats

Had big plans for pictures...but you know how it goes!

Onion Rings (best I have ever made) & Fries came out of
the Fry Daddy, assembled the burgers--to order--
and delivered to the hungry customers...
next thing I knew we are sitting back talkin'
'bout how good everything was and...
OMGosh! no pictures:-(

The place was hoppin' & bobbin'
...around the clock!
Mamaw may be 92 but she can still cut a rug!

No time for shoppin' but look what I found
in the back of my closet.
(why this was in my closet is a whole 'nother story)

MIL is still talkin' about 'THE BEST'
party ever!


ps Pony, Monkey, or Twist on over to Susan's for
more tables deck out for a good time.

What a cute idea and I love the albums as placemats.

I have the baskets and use them for our Diner meals of which we have at least once a month or so.
