62. The Ashtrays at Diner 29

:real man-made interior:

This is my favorite place in the world.

:diner 29, historical landmark:

Or will be, until this Tuesday, when legislation goes into gear in Virginia that means that I can’t smoke inside of Diner 29.

:ashtray in diner 29 - rectangle:

I’m sorry. I like to have my smoke and my coffee after a long trek into Fairfax County.

:but don't i look so beautiful and happy?:

Seriously, though. With Big Tobacco VA out of the picture, where can I smoke cigarettes?

Wikipedia says:

Michigan

Wyoming

Kansas

Oklahoma

Texas

Missouri

Mississippi

Alabama

South Carolina

Indiana

Kentucky

and

West Virginia.

What? That leaves us happy smokers only twelve states to happily smoke in. This is filthy communism!

Apparently others feel the same way:

:whoa:

Back off my happiness, US of A!

    wikipedia listed missouri twice, so it’s really only twelve states. thank god for PA diners though…at least i think they still allow smoking. that’ll be such an unpleasant shock if they’ve changed that by the time i get back!

    Many thanks for sharing most of these wonderful blogposts.
    In addition, the perfect travel along with medical insurance plan can
    often eliminate those considerations that come with visiting abroad.

    A new medical crisis can quickly become extremely expensive and that’s likely to quickly place a financial
    weight on the family’s finances. Setting up in place the ideal travel insurance
    offer prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Cheers
