Downtown Adventure

We're not such a hoity toity family. Our highlight of the weekend will undoubtedly be our trip to Clifton's Cafeteria downtown. An institution since 1931, seats 600, decorated like a redwood forest complete with a waterfall. Theron liked the orange drink, which he says gives you a "happily face". He was so happy he broke into a spontaneous modern dance to the Theme from the Odd Couple. The beans were extra beany and the jello extra fruity. I even enjoyed the carrot raisin salad that as a kid I thought was one of the most inedible dishes on earth (The MOST inedible was my babysitter's peanut butter and Miracle Whip sandwiches which even their dog wouldn't eat. It was worth going hungry to throw them over the fence into the canyon). Anyway, a good time was had by all. We threw coins in the waterfall and made wishes for more fun ahead.
