Sundays In My City

       Unknown Mami

I love this idea courtesy of Unknown Mami

Old fashioned "commin to call" on a Sunday

This is our diner. 
It's on Main St.
The Yankee Clipper
our town has strong ties to the Revolutionary War 

When Ty was 4, he would call it Yank y Nipples

It's shiny and retro
a classic Greek American diner
owned by two sisters and their husbands
everyone knows us by name
the waitresses know what drinks the kids like
and who wants honey mustard or thousand island 
on the side

it's the only place where Mia is allowed to eat 
Fruit Loops
mainly 'cause I like the way the colors match the decor
or I'm just too tired to argue

We've had many a Sunday "brunch" here at the Clipper
I usually leave with a bellyache and indigestion
full of gustatory regret
but we still go back
it's The Clipper


  1. What a great place! Love the pics!
    I stopped by from Unknown Mami's to say hi. I'll be back again soon.

  2. Sunday brunch with the family are memories in the making! Thanks for sharing your pics.

  3. I love Yank y Nipples. When my Jessie was little, she called St. George Island, Snakes Stores Island. I mean really- which is more fun? And appropriate, actually.
    Lloyd needs a diner. Badly. We have a truck stop but it's the truck stop that puts the lie to truck stops having great food. Their food SUCKS and really, it's got the worst ambiance in the world.
    Can I come to brunch with you? Please?

  4. Loves the pics! And I love a town with some history... oh, now I'm hungry for some fruit loops!

  5. I love this kind of retro American diner...wish we had one here (even though we're not anywhere near the US) - I bet we'd be there every other night!

    I've just been reading down through your blog and I like the way you write. I like the sand sculpture and no, I don't think it's just you. I must say I saw some things I shouldn't too! :)

  6. Okay, the Yank y Nipple just cracked me up. I love the pictures and it's true it is an "old fashioned 'Comin to Call'"!

    I love it!!!

  7. Diners rock! There is one like this in Baldwinsville, NY that is wonderful. Great pictures.

  8. Oh, it sounds like such a fun place to visit : ) And do you know what other colors match the diner? Your fab blog. I love all of your color choices. So fun : )

  9. I want to eat there! It looks so cool and my kids would do somersaults if able to order fruit loops. Gorgeous pics. x


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
