Eating on a Retro Road Trip – No Weigh!

Posted on: March 13, 2011

I came across these vintage scales on our travels through the Carolinas yesterday – is this a message regarding my retro-road eating? 😉

Don’t worry, the stretchpants are in the car, and RetroRoadhusband is good about eating what I can’t finish!

    Wow, I haven’t seen one of those scales in ages. I remember them at carnivals years ago. Can’t beat those stretch pants when you sit down to a hearty meal 🙂

      I’ll gladly put on the stretch pants after one of these southern meals, but a scale right there in the restaurant is just plain mean!

    Neat find. I haven’t seen one of those since I was a kid either, they used to have one down at the corner pharmacy in my home town.
