    Amazingly, I no longer stay for last call. A friend of mine owns a bar and I can't really endure the after-party thingies she has. Never go to a bar after hours on an empty stomach or with your car keys - trust me on this one.

    Actually there IS one. On I-94 somewhere West of Kalamazoo. I used to pass it on the way to and from Chicago.

    I have been in some VERY good Waffle Houses and some that would make your stomach queezy just walking in the door.


    Same for IHOPS - and virtually all of the chains.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    I love Waffle House...and Huddle House. I love the eggs. I love the waitresses. I love the Julebox. Mostly I love the customers. I went into one in North Carolina once at about 2:00 a.m. and the place was really busy. I think I was the only one in there not smoking.

    State anti-smoking laws have probably changed the smoking habits of patrons in most places. That cloud of nicotine was a part of the ambiance for me.

    Another Puff.....Jerry Reed.

    Don't ya' just love waitresses like this...

    Well she's up against the register with an apron and a spatula,
    Yesterday's deliveries, tickets for the bachelors
    She's a moving violation from her conk down to her shoes,
    Well, it's just an invitation to the blues

    And you feel just like Cagney, she looks like Rita Hayworth
    At the counter of the Schwab's drugstore
    You wonder if she might be single, she's a loner and likes to mingle
    Got to be patient, try and pick up a clue

    She said "How you gonna like 'em, over medium or scrambled?",
    You say "Anyway's the only way", be careful not to gamble
    On a guy with a suitcase and a ticket getting out of here
    It's a tired bus station and an old pair of shoes
    This ain't nothing but an invitation to the blues

    I love the way he writes lyrics. Integrity is a word that comes to mind when I think of his songs.
