Fields of bakers & coming home.

Went to Bakersfield to visit Mom & Dan for the first part of the weekend. Went to an antique mall that’s in an old vintage art-deco Woolwoorth’s building:

The old lunch counter is still operating!

And the deco details still exist:

No fun, no fun at all:

In the basement, old signs on every door:



Lunch at a cattle-ranch café, and the waitress reminded me of a dear friend of mine:

Except for being pregnant, and being a waitress in a honky-tonk café.

She balanced the plates on her pregnant belly:

(That’s my burger touching her boob.)

Road to nowhere, Bakersfield:

Mom’s cat cuddling me:

Sign of the times (and places):

Got home:

Fun with cookie cutters & cheese!

And the super-hot Santa Anna winds blow around outside, lifting my curtains and reminding me that i’m HOME. Santa Barbara early-summer HOME, barefoot in shorts & no shirt, listening to that wind. Here. Where? Here.

  1. Hey, Came across your fascinating site looking for photos of old Woolworth lunch counters to accompany letters written in 1934. Your recent shots, look great in B&W or sepia. Do you mind if I use one of them in my blog “Trudel’s Truth” http://www.lgrossman/com/trudel/ With credit of course.

  2. Of course you can use any of my images. Thanks for asking!!
