Center Things

I am thinking of utilizing my spare time to work on a Nebraskan-English dictionary. My late mother-in-law and I could have definitely benefited from such a thing, if you see where I am headed.

Anyway, I’ve already got the first entry:
Nebraskan: center things
English: all those things in the middle of the table

So far, Nebraskan seems a more concise language…

Declare glory

I surely did like these jaunty curtains at the Dixie Dog in Spur. And check out the lettered Bible verse there in the window!

Pro tip: if you eat there, you and your travel/photography companion can split an order of fries. And you’ll still have some left.

Don’t bring your appetite

I mean, you can if you want. But it’d be a good idea to also bring your own food – the Wellman Diner is out of business.

Pancakes came with instructions

The side of plate-sized pancakes was delivered by the home-town waitress, who also dropped some knowledge about the correct (and tidy) way to eat them.

She said, “Cut a hole in the middle, hon, and pour your syrup right there. That’ll keep it from runnin’ off the plate into your lap.”

It seemed like valuable information, and I am more than happy to pass it along to you.
