"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

It’s Gone!!

One of the best BBQ joints in the country went up in smoke early this past Sunday morning.  Appropriately named, it was more a shed than anything.  A couple of rooms constructed of plywood, pallets, and rough boards; held together with tin, tarpaper, and vinyl sheeting.  It was the kind of place where you couldn’t find a parking place nearby unless you came in the mid afternoon.

The total interior was covered with one of everything imaginable.  There were thousands of dollars hanging from the ceiling and walls with all kinds of notes written on them.

The owners say they will build back better than before but I don’t think they can.  They may cook the same BBQ, but there isn’t any way they can recreate to original building.  Just happy to say we were able to enjoy the old place before it was gone.  We will always remember our lunch with Judy there just a few weeks ago.

Hopefully, we will get an opportunity to try out the new Shed before the end of the year.


  1. Oh no ... friends were looking forward to meal there next week. Now I have to be the bearer of bad news.


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
