A couple of posts ago featured a window with a view from inside the Red Horse Diner – where Jim & I indulged our hankering for a hamburger and fries. We always split meals so we also claim the right to split our guilt. Some may call it rationalization.
We like the atmosphere of diners, Jim has the Michigan guy thing of loving anything cars, and we both love the taste of a cholesterol filled burger and fries. We had a really good time and I might be pushing it a bit to think I can frame it to be included in San’s Which Way photography challenge. But here in the U.S. we unfortunately almost always have to rely on an automobile to travel any where. As soon as roads were built, signs popped up telling drivers where to get their cars filled with gasoline and serviced.
And if you look closely you also see signs for finding comfort from sodas to ice cream and most importantly what people in the U.S. call “restrooms” although they are intended not for resting but relieving oneself.
And of course a map is always useful for helping people find which way they need to go.
We stopped in Oregon once for gasoline and the attendant saw me sitting in the car with a map spread across my lap. He became excited and exclaimed, “How quaint, you are using a map.” Of course I use a map, it is the only way to find my way when I don’t know where I’m going.

People who use navigation apps on their phones know how to get where they are going. People who use printed maps
know how to get there they are going, but they also know where they are at the moment. I use printed maps.

I love all the signs. And GPS is good for some trips but maps are great for the big picture!!
Just look at that interior – such beautiful colours 😊😊
It was a very fun place to eat – and the food was good.
All those signs! So cool! Thanks for sharing!
I suspect the attendant was used to seeing people using a gps rather than a map…there are interesting places out there on the road.
