365 Project - Day 57 - "Al's Diner"

February 26, 2011 - "Al's Diner"

We're in Chicopee, Massachusetts today for my daughter's dance competition. Had to hit the road by 6am in order to be here in time. After two dances we finally get a break, and can head over to the historic Al's Diner for a late breakfast.

I love diners... especially old, historic diners. Al's has been around for over 50 years now. A small... classic... "rail-car" style diner. Just a few booths... and some stools at the counter. Short-order cook working on a grill in full view. Coffee... eggs... the smell of bacon filling the place... a countertop worn down where thousands of plates have rested... friendly people... conversation.

A wonderful breakfast... a wonderful day.

My daughter went on to earn four "High-Gold" and two "Platinum" trophies for her six dances.

A wonderful day!

Life is good!
