I had a friend who lived in Jasper, Alabama. She was crazy about the color pink. Pink this, pink that, pink everywhere. At Xmas, she had a special, small tree - in addition to her other two Xmas trees - that was entirely decorated in pink. And not only did she admit to it, she bragged about it.

I have rarely rested my eyes upon a pink Xmas tree, but we ran into this specimen at a Waffle House in Conway, Arkansas:

I have no doubt that you'll agree it's an exquisitely beautiful pink Xmas tree. However, they, too, had an alternate, traditional tree on display.

Which prompts me to ask -

Is this pink tree phenomenon a Southern thing??

Does a pink tree always have to be accompanied by a traditionally decorated tree?

Moe's Almost World Famous Diner

We had spotted this diner along our way up to Chippewa Falls (Wisconsin, jeez, you guys!), so when our load back south took us by there again, we had to stop.

With a laminated plastic menu that boasted scores and scores of breakfast options, it took a few minutes for us to decide.

As low carbers, our choices are usually some form of omelette and a side of meat. This was no exception. But ohh, such a good plate-o-food!

And while we sipped coffee and waited, we absorbed the diner ambiance.

Not really. It was nice, but not something to "experience".

Still, it beats the crap out of a Dollar Menu burrito.

Georgia Fog

A very pretty sight when I stopped at a rest area this morning! I love how fog adds drama to nighttime scenes.

Weather on the Eights

I really expected a more impressive building. And one that's tornado proof.

They're Trying to Tell You Something

The tape doesn't bode well at all. If I were Louis and Missy, I'd have another job lined up asap.
