I love small towns. I especially love my small town. There is no such thing as rush hour. We do have what we call "rush minute" at 4:00pm when there is a shift change at the Industrial Park. Traffic grid lock is when you have to wait a minute for a pedestrian to cross the street. And they always wave a little thank you for stopping.
The down side of small towns is "everybody knows everything about you"
The up side of small towns is "everybody knows everything about you"
About a week or so Auntie and I had lunch at Bella's Cafe downtown. They serve homemade desserts and the selection changes every day. Auntie ordered a piece of coconut cake to take home and I passed. (Good self control eh!) We had a brief conversation with the waitress about desserts and I mentioned that I loved the almond honey bread pudding I had there once.
I thought nothing more about it until this morning, just before noon and my phone rang in my office. It was the waitress at the Cafe. She said they had made bread pudding today, and would put a piece aside for me if I wanted. How sweet is that? And how small town? I bet that kind of gesture doesn't happen much in the big cities.
When I arrived it was all packaged and waiting for me. And it was just as good as I remembered. It was a great gesture and it sweetened me up to try the letters on the rug.
P.S. The letters are not going well. Sigh.......
