I went digging through my pictures and came up with some reds from my hometown.
First is the Day and Night Diner. You can get a good meal in this Worcester Lunch Car, nearly all original inside and out. Others have posted pictures of this diner and many other Worcester Lunch Cars in this FlickR group. When we travel, we always look for local diners to get a good meal and wonderful vintage atmosphere.
You can also get a good meal served in this vintage railroad car. It's part of the Steaming Tender Restaurant here in town. The main restaurant is located in the historic train station but the owners bought and converted this car to accommodate small parties. We were privileged to get a little tour of the work in progress but I haven't been in the 'new' car since it's been put into service.
And since Memorial Day is less than two weeks away, I thought I'd share a nice picture from last year's parade. The fire trucks usually bring up the rear in the parade. Because my small town is made up of four villages, each with it's own fire department, we have lots of emergency equipment. No blasting horns or sirens on Memorial Day though, out of respect for the solemn occasion.
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I began blogging to share my love of aprons. Now I use my blog to share all the things I love.
I learned to sew when I was 11 years old and it's still my favorite hobby. I adore vintage everyday items. I can spend hours poking around a flea market or antique store. I am a stay at home mom, and after homeschooling my son for seven years, I'm finding more time to craft and sew. I have been happily married since 1991. I live in the town I was born in and most of my family live only minutes away.
