Cracker Barrel Restaurant – one of my favorite (though probably not healthiest) places to eat. I think it’s a nostalgia thing. A good memory place. Somewhere that reminds me of days gone by.
While driving down to Nashville, Tennessee Jeff and I saw our first Cracker Barrel. That was many moons ago, and it has now become a vacation tradition. Since I’m not a lover of flying, we have stopped at many a CB on our travels.
This morning I decided to grab a book and a few drawing materials, and I headed over to a local CB. Here’s a look at those walls.
A VIEW FROM MY TABLE
A WHOLE WALL OF CREAM SODA, ROOT BEER, ORANGE AND MORE…

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?
