T Tim on Mar 8, 2021

What about going to Lancaster and shady maple for breakfast, the car ride seemed forever but it was so beautiful up there (except when there were thunderstorms lol).
I also remember the building and getting to play on the mountains of cases and the old barber chair in the back. It was such a treat that Pooh and Poppy worked just a block down the road.
And I also remember graduating to the “men’s room” with Poppy for dinners.
Holidays, birthdays, and family get togethers will never be the same.
