HOMETOWN VIEWS

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, actually I have to warn you, about a new restaurant in the area. I think it’s called Aunt Sara’s Family Restaurant and I think they are supposed to serve breakfast anytime. They don’t tell you to bring your pajamas and a sleeping bag.

They or she, whatever, just opened up in the old Captain ‘D’ restaurant in the Marketplace of Coventry on 24. I don’t know what happened to Captain ‘D’ but I’m going to miss his Senior specials and I do love his fried fish besides.

My little tubby hubby Wayne and I got to the restaurant at exactly 7pm. We ordered a veggie omelet with wheat toast for me and meatloaf with mashed potatoes, and green beans for Wayne. His dinner came with a salad although the salad was mostly lettuce. Ok, here is a list of the events:

7pm – order dinners and two waters with lemon slices.

7.05 – We get the waters.

7:15 – Wayne gets his salad, waitress refills water glasses and apologizes.

7:30 – Waitress apologizes and brings bread sticks

7:35 – Waitress apologizes and says they are out of green beans – Wayne asks for squash as substitute.

7:45 – Waitress fills water glasses and apologizes

7:50 – Waitress fills water glasses and apologizes

8:00 – Waitress brings meals. Wayne has a half dozen pieces of half cooked squash, a small glob of mashed potatoes that has everything but the kitchen sink mixed in it, and his cell phone size piece of meatloaf was more loaf than meat (it looked like it had a lot of bread in it), and it had a lot of other ‘things’ mixed in it as well. My omelet was ok but nothing like you can get at Rich’s in Waynedale. I’m going to stick closer to home the next time we go out to eat.

8:15 We leave the restaurant – That McDonald’s next door sure looks better all the time.

I overheard another couple, who had been waiting longer than we had, say they thought that this was only the second day to be open. I sure hope they improve for their sake, because we won’t be back anywhere soon. Maybe we’ll wait a few months to see if they are still open.

Oooooohhh and I want to thank whoever took my place in the Waynedale Memorial Day Parade in the old Chevy convertible with the Mrs. Waynedale sign on the door, although I think I look cuter. I want to thank whoever got the car for me and put the sign on it. I’m sorry I couldn’t ride in your cute little ol’ car. Oh, by the way, my name is Mrs. Wayne Dale not Mrs. Waynedale; I didn’t win a contest you know.

Anyway I’m so sorry I missed the parade. I had to go into the hospital. It was a girl thing I guess if you want to call what I had, and water in the lungs a girl thing, although Wayne does keep referring to them as jugs. I don’t think it was pneumonia but I sure was miserable for a time. I so want to ride in the next parade. Bob said I could ride one of those little electric scooters but I’m so scared of wrecking his cute little thingy. Maybe Wayne and I could ride double. Thank you Cindy for the nice card and thank you Ray for saving me a bag of your delicious popcorn.
Until next time Taa Taaa.
