Today we had coffee and watched CBS Sunday Morning. It's the Sunday morning ritual during pandemic. The news is honest, but uplifting...usually.
This reminder was not good. So many well known favorites have closed down. But it's the Mom & Pop places that I really worry over.
Pekin Noodle Parlor is Open!
Don and I have spent the last 10 years seeking out the curious, family owned cafes and diners that are less well known. We about fell off the couch when one of our all time favorites was featured!
What a relief to know that this family-owned gem in Butte, Montana is still open!
Don and I spotted the neon sign about 5 years ago. We climbed the stairs and ended up with one of the most memorable dining adventures ever!
The funny little dining rooms are perfect for isolated dining now. They've removed the curtains and the staff wears masks. Oh, I hope to return someday and eat some of their chop suey, again!
It will be a while before Don and I are comfortable dining in a restaurant. But for now, we'll keep supporting with carryout orders.
Today for lunch, we picked up sushi from Mori Ichi and dined on our patio. When I called in to place the order, I recognized Coco's voice. She laughed to hear mine. "All salmon right? I recognize your voice!"
I miss dining in, but it was fun to greet the staff, when I picked up!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
