PROOF

I need a picture of the hitching posts for Mennonite horse-and-buggys at Waterloo grocery stores, just to prove to myself that they really existed when I've been gone for too long. Just like I needed this  picture of a functioning (or at least moving) oil derrick in the McDonald's parking lot.

Curiosity and Excitement

As a fan of greasy spoons and cheap-ass breakfasts, I am very embarrassed to tell you that it took me seven full years before I made it to The Commodore.
