We went to a restaurant the other day when the in laws were in town. Our son's father in law quipped, "I imagine the food will be good so long as the porch roof doesn't fall on us as we walk in." It really did look dilapidated. The food was good. The ceiling was "wall papered" with dollar bills signed by customers and left for the purpose of stapling there. We asked the waitress about this and she explained it got started about 17 years ago. They were in the process of removing the bills and using the money for repairs. They estimated about 18K on the ceiling. A lot of money, but hardly enough to rebuild a restaurant.

I'm wondering... If I signed a dollar bill and pasted it to the ceiling of my house, would you all come to visit me and do the same? :-)

Depends what you're having for dinner.

We've got a bar like that in Victoria. There were bras tacked up all over the place before the reno!

I dunno. But I now have the thread title going round my head to the Beatles tune ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’.

Thanks for that. wink

I've been to Mander's PREVIOUS house.
Next time I'm visiting kinfolk in Oregon, I may ask if she's like me to visit her new digs.
And, hell, I'll staple a dollar to her ceiling.

Nope. But I might give you a Loonie. Or a Toonie.  wink
