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 was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    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.

      Right! And if that place is clean and cheery or pretty, the customer expects the kitchen to be clean and the food good. If that place is grimy and dull, the customer wonders….

    What? You haven’t been in the men’s room? You’d best fix that soon or have your husband take a few shots. 🙂 And although all those restaurant types sound great, there’s something wonderful about a killer breakfast.

      I know, right? Charlie would never take a picture in the Gentlemen’s room, but I sure will, next time! Oh, their breakfast! Sausage gravy over biscuits with home fries on the side — enough for us both to share! Mmmmmmm….

      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.
