Well maybe not ‘living’ in the sense of residency, but here for a week. In Ellenville we noticed a diner we had eaten at, but were disappointed in, was closed and surrounded by weeds. We understood why. BUT, we were so disappointed when, a few miles before the RV park we saw the remnants of a Diner we had loved. It had recently burned and a clean up was in progress. I hope they rebuild.
It has been 3 years since we were here. They sustained damage from a storm 2 yrs ago, and are still recovering. After parking we walked around. Stopped by the little store and bought an ice cream cone (unusual for us, but we wanted it.)
Yesterday Sherry put a pot of butter beans on to have with corn bread, so I suggested us go down to the diner that is left and have breakfast. As we drove up I took note of one nice truck with a front tag that read, ‘COMMISSIONER’. I ordered eggs sunny side up with home fries, this time Sherry had the Veggie Omelet.
I was watching an animated conversation among the old men, I told Sherry, I bet the guy with Black hair, doing all the talking, gets in the commissioner’s truck. He did, I think I am a prophet. LOL
This area of NY has a lot of dirt farmers. Nice folk and very friendly. I love sitting across from my best friend, and enjoying eating out. As I watched the activity around me for some reason I thought of toast.
At our house biscuits were served most meals, we seldom had toast, it was sort of a treat. When I say treat, I think of the ‘butter spot’. Of course we didn’t have a toaster, the toast was made under the oven broiler. Loaf bread with a small hunk of butter. It came out Golden brown with a bright yellow spot, I called it the butter spot. I always tried to leave the toast and just eat the butter spot, mama would not allow that. (BUT I WANTED TO). Right now, I can remember how good that ‘butter spot’ was.
Thanks for coming by the log.

This is the basic Hawk by Studebaker. I loved the looks this car. Louis just completed a great blog entry on the Grand Turisimo Hawk, that followed.
