Motel Midcentury

Ok, I just now promised Dolly, from KoolKosherKitchen, an excellent Kosher Kook!! That I would post at least once this week. So, I better get to it, so I don’t let the clock run out!!

I’m looking for my notebook, because I started writing a post, and now can’t find it. I have 3 others here on my desk! But not the one I want. Eye roll. Figures.

Well, ok then, I gotta do it all from memory. Ow!! that hurts!! My brain doesn’t like working anymore!

Last Sat, no, Sat was a week ago, before that, we went up to see the girls. And we wanted to stay in a motel closer, than the one we’ve used every other time. So, we pull up into this midcentury looking one, which they ALL look like that! We paid, then drove around to the room. First off, I said to DH, “There’s no A/C!!” He said, “Wahat??” There’s no A/C!! See beside the door, no A/C!! (ALL the motels we have EVER been in, the A/C is always by the door, dripping onto the sidewalk.

Apparently he didn’t believe me, and went in. One second later, he comes out. There’s no A/C! Well, DUH!! I told you that. Back to the office he jogs. Office manager comes. Lo and behold, there IS an A/C- on the back wall! The guy must have thought we were stupid hicks who never been to a motel before!! But, they are never on the wall!!

There’s always a first time.

DH turned down the A/C, and we went to supper. I never know if it’s turn down, or up. He set it to get cooler.

Popeye’s- yoo hoo!! Love that Lou-se-anna chicken!! And they had some mighty tasty raspberry cream pies, too!

Back to the room, where we sweated for about 2 hours. But I kept myself entertained, by taking pix!!

I thought it was so hilarious, I was texting everybody!!

The pink bedspread is not so bad. But look at this!

The walls are mint green! Oh yuck!! Y’all know how much I hate green!! At least when I go to sleep, I won’t have to see it anymore!!

Behind my head;

All this pink and green is about to make me gag!!

I’m not sure if you can see it clearly, but the tiles are pink, and green!! And that sink cut out is hilarious!!

HOW do they fix the toilet??? If you started with me, from my first blog, then you know I ALWAYS have toilet troubles!! And no different, it wouldn’t flush. sigh Why would I think a motel toilet would be any different?? I figured out a way to deal with it, I only had to use it 14x or so, during the night. (Could we please figure out a way for women with big babies to not have to go every hour?? Please????)

At least they were consistent with their color scheme! Points for that!

I texted DD1 the pix, and she asked where we were staying. I answered with the town name. Her answer was; I doubt the motel is named that. Oh! You wanted the name of the motel! lol I said it was Ye Old Holiday Inn. That wasn’t the name either, but I couldn’t remember, so close enough.

Don’t worry, little eyes, we won’t ever stay there again!!

So, we went to the girls, visited, and lived happily ever after…

Until we had to leave in 6 hours…. then I cried allllll the way home.

(OK, I can not figure out how to make the color stay the same, and every time I highlight the text, the color thing disappears…. ERGH!! So, sorry, but this is the way it is today. I’ll work on it more later!)

  1. I give you A+, Melinda! You go girl! And I thank you so much for the shout out – you rock!
    Did you find out how they fixed toilets? As to the color scheme, it reminds of an old Odessa joke (not exactly family-oriented, but green walls were featured there).
    To keep your color constant, you have to clear your choice every time you highlight a new chunk of text and choose your color all over again.
    Good luck, and keep’em coming! 😻

  2. Awww, thanks Dolly!! No, the next morning we just dropped the key off, and left. But, I’m so curious, we might just have to stop by one weekend! lol Nooo! that’s too much work, having to choose your color all over again! I had forgotten how frustrating WP can be sometimes!
