Writing on the Wall

Today my fun friend Karen and I went to lunch
at the popular local eatery.....
Young's Pizza.

It was my first time there!  :)
Since I am fairly new to this area btw.

  Karen told me the story
about HER name (from the 70's) being upstairs somewhere,
(you can see the circular staircase in the backgrouond).

The most famous and distinguishable feature of Young's Pizza
 - other than their extraordinary pizza and the patooties-
are the walls and ceilings of the restaurant.
They are completely
 - and I mean COM-PLETE-LY-
 covered in various scrawls of pen, paint,
and marker,
of visitors' scribbled names and messages
 all throughout the restaurant.
Their one rule is.....
NOT to write on the tablecloths
or on the face of the mural of the school mascots.

  There are also old drawings, old letters,
vintage school memorabilia,
old photos, old posters, and even the nose of
an airplane crashing through the ceiling
(sorry no photo of that)

Some walls, ( like in the women's bathroom ),
 are papered with the
funny papers (comics).

Young's Pizza is the place to go for great food.
 This is one of the best eating spots in town
and it's where all the locals go,
and have for many years. 
I will definitely go back.
It's fun, it's unique, it has great history,
it makes everyone smile,
and of course has great food.
It's one way to....

Savor the Day!

And to think I only had to go there and write on the walls instead of all those truck stop bathrooms! :)Bea

When our #2 son was a teenager we allowed he and his friends to write anything they wanted on his bedroom walls - provided there was no profanity. The kids had a total blast - there were drawings, signatures, poems, and all sorts of memorabilia on there. It took a couple of coats of paint to cover it over when he left home, but the teens had a great time.

This sounds like a lot of fun....I had a friend who scribbled notes and drawings in their bathroom off the kitchen of the old farm house. Fun and funny at the same time! peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
