Day 4: A Romantic Diner Lunch Before More Machinery

In this little town of Oxford, Massachusetts is the Burg-O-Rama, formally known as the Little Dipper. My grandmother worked there then, in the late fifties. It was there while dipping ice cream cones that she met my grandfather all those years ago. Some thirty years later, my mother and I moved into a little apartment across the street from this mom-and-pop restaurant.

And now, here I am, all these years later. The restaurant itself hasn't changed much, and the fish and chips were really great. 

How fantastic is this gingham dress? VERY is the correct answer. Besides having pockets and bra strap keeps, it was made to my measurements! I chose the length of the skirt, put in my numbers and a couple weeks later I had a super-comfortable and super-flattering dress. I can't wait to get more from them.

We sat at the bar, where they had these adorable napkin dispensers. 

After lunch, I changed into some clothes that I wouldn't mind getting dirty and we headed to my great uncle's welding shop. He's got lots of big machinery in there, but I think he's most proud of his smokeless heater. It's his design that he's been working on for a long time, and will continue to improve. "Shane" is the name of one of his brothers who helped him design it, but he passed away many years ago.

More heavy machinery...

The wood mill was painted with a color originally intended for his '57 Chevy.
