Way Back When #ThursdayDoors

I’ve had to reach into the freezer and defrost some old pictures.

Once upon a time, when people could go anywhere and meet with as many people as they wanted to without risking innumerable people’s lives, I took these pictures while stopped at traffic lights.

There were restaurants in those days, where one could go inside and eat. This picture is from the parking lot of one of my favorites. Can you guess the restaurant where I had this fine dining experience?

This one proves that gray isn’t necessarily boring.

I don’t know if the star of this one is the round corner or the menagerie across the street.

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.

    The round corner wins. Is that really a White Castle? I haven’t been to one in years. And, your own car door is visible in your mirror 🙂

      That’s the utility shed of the White Castle. I love them SO HARD! When I was expecting #4 Daughter, the only thing that would settle my stomach was a White Castle or two. True story.

    Marian, it really takes some doing to get me to say that I like something gray – but that is one very cool door/entry. Great post. Hugs on the wing.

      If by “the hinterlands” you mean Corydon, yes, we have a White Castle. We’re close to an expressway exit, so there are a blue million fast food joints up by the exit, at the edge of town. 🙂

      If Griff’s had little square hamburgers steam-grilled on a bed of limp onions, it was the same thing. 🙂
