Burn one, take it through the garden and pin a rose on it: Some diners seen along the way














Nothing is more all-American than the humble diner, with its comfort food, friendly staff and folksy clientele. You can be 1,000 miles from home and still feel like everyone knows you in one of these steel and Formica monuments to yesteryear. We try to patronize these living, breathing museums of America's culinary past as often as possible while out on the road. Nothing could be finer.

I love the signs! Is it perhaps divine coincidence that I have become a sign maker? Maybe! Nothing I make will be as fine as those diner signs though. They really don't make em like they used to! :-)

Amber: Sign making, eh? You know you're just signing your life away.

Beautiful. Love the "Justly Famous" sign.
