You Capture Thursday

So as we traveled, we stopped at one of my favorite spots to eat. It's a truck stop/restaurant and the food is really, really good. And to my amazement, the restaurant just became even better. There was no cigarette smoke in that restaurant at all. That's right! Smoke free! I loved it. The only thing I didn't like about it before was that the truckers seemed to like to relax by watching one of their 7 or 8 television sets and smoking like chimneys. Whew! And now it's better but I won't be hanging out there any more than I ever have. Why? Alas, Mr. Right is a smoker.

The good news though, was that as I perused the buffet, I spotted my photo assignment for this week. Out to the car I went for my camera and here is my first reflection picture:



And then late one night in Colorado Springs as we watched TV, I spotted my second reflection picture:

  17. Oh, I could just dive into that first picture! That was worth going back out to get your camera. I love restaurants that are smoke free! I walked thru an Olive Garden the other day and just walking past the bar, I felt like all that smoke clung to my clothes and hair and I had to take a shower when I got home.
