CoryDoors – Frederick’s Again #ThursdayDoors

Frederick’s is a nifty little place in downtown (for a given value of “downtown”) Corydon. When we first moved here, it was Donahue’s, where Mom and I went three times a year for the best prime rib anybody ever ate. When Mr. Donahue retired, he took his recipes with him, dammit. But then a really good Mexican restaurant opened there. I don’t remember the name, because us locals call it El Donahue’s. Now it’s Frederick’s, which makes a killer-good breakfast and pretty good lunch. Closed for dinner.

ANYWAY, you know me and terlits (I’m a connoisseur), so I took a picture of the doors.

The alcove in the middle holds the sink for both Gentlemen and Ladies. I don’t know where the Hos and ManHos are supposed to go.

I also don’t know what’s painted on the wall inside the Gentlemen’s room (remiss of me — I’ll have to correct that sometime), but this is in the Ladies’.

The flowers are all leaning toward the Necessary Convenience, as if lending their aid to a ladylike denial of natural bodily functions. Charming.

This has been (just barely) part of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors link-up. Visit Norm’s gorgeous blog, view his wonderful photographs, and click the blue frog link to enter a world of doors.

    I like a little whimsy around those necessary functions. If you brighten up that place, you know you’re going to make most of your customers smile.

    Thanks for the chuckles. Now you’re just going to have to march into the men’s room and start taking pictures there too!!

      It wouldn’t be the first men’s room I’ve marched into. At the Carnegie Deli in NYC, I was waiting in line for the Ladies’, and one of the waiters looked at me like I was nuts and said, “If the Men’s is empty, use that.” He walked away, shaking his head at these crazy Midwestern tourists.
