I have breakfasted at a couple of places like this, in USA, Frank...I was fascinated by the language of the waiting staff as I couldn't understand a word they said.
Frank L Croston.: You do have to concentrate,Ray, but I also have my trusty native guide with
I do love this shot, Frank! I'm glad you decided to take it at this time - rather than when the table was covered with heaping plate fulls of food! smile

You gotta wear the right headgear to be one of the boys Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Oh yes, Chris, shame the guy in the stetson didn't turn up 'til afterwards. smile

Frank L Croston.: Only if you pull a gun on them Thanks.

I hope you ate well, Frank, but as a true photographer, you took your pictures as well
Frank L Croston.: Oh I did, Elisabeth, couldn't resist a photo.
Gotta love those places where you can have breakfast and lunch all day, Frank. Reminds me of a truck stop. smile
Frank L Croston.: It was just like a truck stop, Ginnie, great place, very busy.

Those bloody caps ....why can't they wear knotted hankerchiefs like any decent folk would.
Frank L Croston.: I pointed this out....And they pointed me out the
This is a great image Frank, has me thinking back many years when we visited Florida.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks...glad to remind you.
Where's Jack Reacher?

I used to like Supertramp
Frank L Croston.: He had just left....Didn't like the coffee. Why don't you like them

I really enjoy eating breakfast in America Frank. I know its a long way to go and the coffee a bit on the weak side, but the service and the eggs are usually very good.
Frank L Croston.: It's worth the trip,Chad, especially the refills....
Cooking with gas Frank ,saw Supertramp at Preston years ago.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bud, never saw them,but they were a good band, wore a couple of their albums out.
We will have these in a few weeks...
Frank L Croston.: Something to look forward to, Chantal,where are you visiting?
Looks like things aint changed a lot at that establishment since it was built. Thank you for the song which I played whilst eating my very English breakfast of porridge and a cup of tea.
Frank L Croston.: No, it didn't seem like it had changed in a while, Suzanne. my pleasure with the song,sounds like a good

Is it now compulsory to wear a baseball cap in a diner. I don't want to fall foul of new laws smile There are so many options for how you want your eggs cooked and even what sort of toast; very different to that in the Motherland.
Frank L Croston.: Breakfasts are great over here,Alan. I don't think it's compulsory
I love that you included the song. Times and fashions have changed and certainly the manners of not sitting at the table with your hat on.
Frank L Croston.: Glad you liked it,Mary,it is one thing I can't get used
Nice angle of shot Frank...
great music too wink wink!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,

When I grew up, it was considered bad manners for a man to dine with head gear. The current young generation seems not be that aware of the rule, any more. Must be the influence of American movies.

Whatever, it is an interesting shot, as they are all unaware of your camera.
Frank L Croston.: I mentioned this to Elizabeth, she said it's the norm here. Thanks, Louis.
Seems as if you've captured a few 'good old boys' in this shot, Frank. Only hope this was not in one of those open carry places.
Frank L Croston.: There were lots of good ole' boys here,Beverley,and I'm afraid it was open carry,though Elizabeth says she would rather that, than the concealed ones,me, I try not to think too much about it.
Like Bill I thought straight away of Jack Reacher, I love the books he's in and have just finished yet another in the series. So this is a Diner, trouble is I never seem to understand what the menu items in the novels actually mean.
Frank L Croston.: I've read all the Jack Reacher books,Brian,they are good. I have to ask about some of the items,but haven't found any I don't like yet! And ,like Jack,I let em' keep the coffee comin'. smile

Frank L Croston.: What more do we need? Thanks, Anne.
Looks like the typical diner.
Frank L Croston.: It was,
