Life as we used to know it
A great week is wrapping up, and it has been a blast from the past. I had an opportunity to see a friend's new home in Terre Haute, Indiana. It is a mid century ranch in pristine condition with most of the wonderful 50's features still in the home. As we travelled the back roads, through lush corn fields, past barns and buildings from another era, we discovered the Glory Days Restaurant in Clay City, Indiana, the "Mayberry of the Midwest". Hey, that's their slogan, not mine. Clay City has a population of a little over a thousand, a great pottery that has been in business for 125 years, and Glory Days, a diner with some great food and even better Hoosier hospitality!
Speaking of hospitality, here's a pic of the the great guy who actually pumped our gas, cleaned the windshield and even offered to check the oil, all with a big smile and some Hoosier humor thrown in! Now that's a blast from the past!
