Nebraska - My dad has always been a sociable person.
When I was a child/teenager, I would get embarrassed because he would talk to complete strangers. But now I can understand. I've become that same sociable person.
Twice this past week, I wheeled dad over to his favorite cafe so he could be his chatty self. All the waitresses and several of the regulars know my dad at The Farmer's Daughter. You could see his whole face light up as he got talking with some of the gals. I think he needs some of this emotional healing as well.
Oh and we also came for the food at this 40-year-old local cafe. There's still nothing like a simple hot roast beef and gravy sandwich, a greasy Reuben smothered in sauerkraut (for me only) or the daily home cooked special.
On Friday, I ordered the BBQ rib special and it was lip smackin' delicious!
This is one small-town haunt that will always bring a smile to your face and fill up your belly.
