Heading west through Pennsylvania.
Turning off at junction 177 for a break.
Stopping at Long John Silver’s Diner.
Neil Diamond singing Cracklin’ Rose on the Rock-Ola. A cup of weak coffee. Fish and rice served on a plastic tray.
I want to know if the Rock-Ola is playing 45s; the waitress says,
‘No. CDs. Somebody broke the selector. Still, that’s ok, I’ve memorised the numbers of all the songs I like.’
Freddy and the Dreamers sing I’m Telling You Now as we leave.
