Sorry, I don't have a place on the Web to store photos.

I saw a few of the old Valentine Diners on my Route 66 road trip in April. I drove hungry for hours to reach the one in Winslow, AZ, but it was closed and awaiting restoration. Were the Griffs made using enameled steel as well?

The A frame design you posted is similar to the one in Albuquerque, except the structure in front in much larger and has a horizontal roof line. Since the A frame is pushed back, it is much less noticeable.

And yes, the little chef's called Griffy, which is also Bill Griffith's nickname.

So this is your first published strip? Congrats and enjoy. As a friend of mine said when my Zippy strips started to appear: "Your cool quotient just went up ten points!"

And by all means, keep your eyes open for stuff to shoot and submit. I have found that Bill can be very unpredictable for what he will use -- so I don't try to second-guess him.

Moderns-R-Us,

I happened to be updating my list of Zippy strips and saw your request for a pic of Griff's. Well, I have a photo hosting account now, so I hope this is better late than never...

This is the Griff's in Albuquerque, NM

p.s. Zippy on 9/22 will feature Vincent Lugo "Monster Park" in San Gabriel!
