Mom's 82nd!

We took Mom out to The Filling Station Cafe today in Old Town, Orange, CA. It's a great breakfast and lunch spot with a lot of character. I think it used to be a gas station or garage, and they have a lot of antique automobile paraphernalia. Very cool!
So, I know I'm not the most observant guy in the world... I'm sitting with my family and notice an overhead window with light streaming in and think it might make for an interesting photo. So I grab my cellphone and take this photo:
It's not till I get home and look at this photo that I even see the signs or realize what they say! Too funny!! I guess that's restaurant humor.

  2. That is an interesting photo - you are right! Both of them. And even more so with the sign! Very funny particularly because it was accidental. Either would be perfect for Mandarin Orange Monday too:)
