Not the post I planned, but at some point, I'll show some of the lovely Christmas gifts I received. I had just transferred them from my camera to my new computer and erased them from my camera, when all at once my computer no longer showed anything on the screen. Since it was under warranty, Scott bundled everything up, except the new printer and scanner, then took it away. The good news is, the hard drive is intact and now loaded with WordPerfect and PhotoShop, as well as my address book and all my files.
So let's head out several weeks before Christmas, where I met four other friends who are camera/internet phobic. I've mentioned them before. They have small children and don't want their photos or their children's photos on the internet. So of course, I'm willing to oblige them. Our goal was to eventually find Christmas lights, so that's why I had my camera.
First, we had a gift exchange, then headed to Spangles, a family owned restaurant that is based in Wichita, but has 27 locations in Kansas, 14 of which are in Wichita. Each order is cooked while the customer waits, and it doesn't take long, either. You can find their dinner menu here. If you go to their home page, you will see what I got. Not shown on their menu, but it's the double grilled cheese and tomato soup for $6.99. It was the perfect thing for this vegetarian who obviously wasn't going to complain about the choice of restaurants, especially since I wasn't driving.
Note the soft drink machine in the middle of the photo. That's part of my drink for this post.
Although this location is less than two miles from my home, I have never been to a Spangles. I was glad we came, because I was mesmerized by the neon and the 50s style decor. And perhaps an even better photo of the soft drink machine.
After we ate, I made my way to the restroom, where i found even more 50s memorabilia.
And finally, an old tin sign of a Pepsi Cola bottle. And there's Elvis with a cup of coffee, too. So even though I couldn't take photos of our food or drink there were plenty of images all around that qualify for this T Tuesday post. We never did see any Christmas lights worth writing home about, and I didn't take a single photo after we left the restaurant.
Now it's your turn to share your T related post. Any post is acceptable as long as it has a drink of some kind in it. It can even be a sign or a photo on a wall. Think outside the box, and surprise me. Once you have your post, please link it below (direct links only, please), then Bleubeard, the T gang and I will be by to visit. Bleubeard wants to remind you, your photos don't have to be taken on Tuesday, or even this year, for that matter.
