In a little cafe, just the other side of the  highway…

It wasn’t really a cafe, it was a diner. But that’s not how the song goes.

Then again, in the song, it was “the other side of the border”, but there’s no border here. Just highway.

Have I lost you, yet?  I’m confusing myself.  Nevertheless, the walls of this cafe/diner on the other side of the border/highway are decorated with a potpourri of items, that to me, seem to have no rhyme or reason. Yet I love to eat there, always looking for what’s new in wall ornaments.  As you enter the building you see a couple of paintings.  Then you see a myriad of trinkets, signs, bottles, and what-all-else hanging everywhere.  It’s hard to eat without spinning your head, Linda Blair style – well almost Linda Blair style. (are you to young for that reference?)

The wall paintings are pretty cool, but the artist made at least one error in each picture.  Can you guess what they are?

Need another brick in your wall?  Stop by Ailsa‘s @ wheresmybackpack and take a peek by clicking on the link.

Thanks to Ailsa for hosting another interesting challenge.  And thanks to y’all for browsing, liking, viewing, and/or commenting.  I do appreciate your visit.

  1. I want to go to that café! And I’m not too young for the Linda Blair comment. I recently complained to my 26-year-old son about the almost circular angles of a local intersection where I have to do an exorcist-thing with my head to see if it’s safe to turn. He understood my reference, but I was surprised.

  2. i love the image of the tables, chairs, accessories in the diner! it’s been years since i’ve been in a restaurant like that – quite the change from palm-thatched open-air restaurants!

    looks like a great place, and i’ll bet their menu is nice as well!


  3. The place looks interesting,I enjoyed the video clip,I’ve never heard of the group before,maybe it is because I’m in my thirties, 🙂

    • Ok. Now you’re making me jealous. 30’s! What’s that? 🙂 it was a fun song. There were a lot of them in ‘the day’.
      Thanks for the comment and visit, matron.

    • Check Genevieve’s response. I can never get anything by her! :-). Maybe because we’ve known each other for over 50 years!
      Thanks for stopping by again, melouisef. (Louise?) 🙂

    • I think that’s it, except maybe Planter’s and Lowe’s might need apostrophes (am I even spelling THAT right?!) and for us to go there, I would need to investigate the macs and cheese situation. 😉

  4. I am having trouble leaving this post. i love the song…played it a few times already…and those walls…how cool. I did the same thing…singing to the hairbrush. When Elvis was playing i would dance bouncing over beds and chairs, hairbrush in hand…such a geek…so much fun
