Going To The Bathroom w/TSG

Now don't get all freaked out about the title. You should know by now that we wouldn't take you to just any bathroom. We're talking about the most famous bathroom in California, if not the West.  Nothing but the best for this blog! 

Due to a mis-programmed alarm clock, we found ourselves on the road WAY too early last Sunday morning.  Thus we were not able to fulfill our dream of having biscuits and gravy at the Madonna Inn. The Coffee Shop was closed unless you happened to be a CHP officer (you can see them in the back of the counter area), so we set off in search of the famous men's room.

This was our first visit to the Madonna Inn.  After all these years of driving past--en route to points north or south--we show up to an empty roadside attraction. (Except for the pre-dawn Chippie crowd, that is.) No food or java for non law-enforcement types, but it was cool to wander around and have the run of the place for a few minutes.

Note: Instead of biscuits and gravy, breakfast ended up being a banana nut muffin and some bad 7/11 coffee.  Oh well, that's life on the road for ya (...and we wouldn't have it any other way!)

I grasp for suitable adjectives, and I am suddenly back in high school with like-minded folk perusing, at lunchtime, a massive dictionary on a small table in the school library, looking for a suitable word of the day to linguistically fondle and exploit. And there, in very small font, is precisely the word I am trolling for - "clinquant!"

Yes indeed, the dining area is indeed a most clinquant dining area!

As for the bathroom, adjectives elude me. I do have one question, however. It appears that the urinal amounts to a shared stone wall that one can communally whiz upon? Not for those who suffer a shy bladder, I guess.

An excellent posting, by the way. Eye candy aplenty.
