One point five pie

The Gold and Silver Inn is possibly the oldest family restaurant in my town. It's been around since the 50's, or possibly before, and still has that kind of Mom & Pop "greasy spoon" sort of atmosphere. The sound system plays 50's music while the waitresses run back and forth between smoking and non, carrying stacks of plates in an amazing ballet of coffee shop virtuosity.

It's charming, and homey, and comforting in a way, but then, so are many other restaurants in town. What the other restaurants don't have, however, is Renate's homemade pies.

Apropos of nothing

Today's random video find in Dad's new collection is:

Boxed set of "Queer as Folk" on DVD.
Akira Kurosawa's "Dreams" on laser disc.
8 copies of "Pretty Woman" on VHS.
