Thursday’s Doors ~ Gallant Farm Preserve, barn door

Image

Brrr- r!

the icy grass doesn’t indicate 

breezy and freezing temperature.

I remember my friend’s father when

she left the door to the refrigerator

saying, “Close that door!” Then, 

he would go further by adding, 

“You weren’t raised in a barn.”

Hope you will enjoy this

red barn door and go

Everyone had great comments 

about what seems to be a 

universal and common

expression about leaving doors open,

 which brings a scolding!

I have a dear friend, Sylvia,

who added a link in her comments:

Please stop by Sylvia’s blog, Another Day in Paradise, to see her beautiful travel photography and funny, special critters who hang out in her own back yard!

“Diner Gals”

Why don’t you come out this morn?

Have you been ready to eat for awhile?
So much politeness will be rewarded.

The sweet breakfast items you order

will fill you up and keep you warm.

You’re such pals!

“Buffalo Gals” was written in 1844.

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) had 

one of his main characters in 1876.

The slave character, Jim,

sang “Buffalo Gals” and you may

know it continues as,

“Won’t you come out tonight?”

Minstrel singers used to change 

the lyrics, for example, to

match audiences in Boston,

Massachusetts:

“Boston gals, won’t you 

come out tonight?”

Notes  by  reocochran,

as well as wordplays

in the above poem

were written for

the M & M gals.

Thursday’s Doors ~ Hamburger Inn Diner, (full view)

Image

This is a popular local diner,

Hamburger Inn Diner.

Located at 

16 North Sandusky Street

Delaware, Ohio  43015.

Established in 1932,

Open all night on Friday and Saturday!

A favorite place for college students,

Local “townies” who meet their 

friends and family members.

When I arrived in this

small town, I had read a

Grumpy Gourmet review,

where he recommended the 

sliced home fries, topped with

fried onions and American cheese.

He added the homemade maple rolls

freshly baked will melt in your mouth.

Black Angus hamburgers with freshly

handcut fries are delicious.

You may like a slice of 

homemade pies or a

tasty ice cream milk shake.

It is worth the wait!

Please stop by this blog, written

by a leader in his own door pursuits:

Hope you will find your own place

that serves up delicious food with

a sense of hometown pride.

Many come from afar, so 

if you get a “hankering”

for this 85 year old

diner fare,

Let me know~

I’ll meet you there!

Here is the front door and 

sidewalk patio for a local favorite.

It is the front view where 

I had to edit out the street parking.

What do you think of this first shot?

Would you like to take a spin 

on those diner stools? 

Head on over to the

other full view of

Downtown Delaware, Ohio.

Then, check out a silly poem

with two patient and sweet

granddaughters, M & M girls.

They would be happy to show

you how to spin without flying off!

If he were here visiting, 

Norm Frampton 

would welcome you to his

weekly collection, links to other

diverse, interesting, historical doors.

Here’s Norm’s blog:

Hope you enjoy this trio of door posts,

where one is actually an inside shot,

another is a plate full of my breakfast!

Does anyone know these symbols?

The Gray Chapel on the

Ohio Wesleyan University

campus has been featured

before on my December holiday

collection of doors. Front door

has interesting side panels,

running up along the

blue limestone frame.

Do you recognize

this language

which is

“Foreign

to me?”

We deserved a delicious meal,

Looking out the front window,

Through the wooden frames 

Front door of restaurant named,
