Peachey's, Red's and Scott

Dear Dan,

See what you left me with?

Scott called last night and asked if I wanted to take mom to Brownie's for Mother's Day. He knew it wasn't Brownie's but he couldn't remember Red's.

Brownie's is the bar as you come down the mountain to Spring Mills. Mom and I stopped there once for lunch and tea. It wasn't bad for a bar that serves sandwiches. However, Red's is where mom spent a lot of time when she was growing up.

I tried giving Scott hints -- think primary colors, do you still watch the Red Green show -- but he wasn't getting it. This is what you left me to deal with??? j/k!

Peachey's burned Wednesday night/Thursday morning. The still don't know the cause but it's a total loss. They don't know if they will rebuild. Such a shame! I used to take mom over there once a month or so. There were all sorts of spices and old-fashioned candies you can only find there.

I got my chair over there a couple weeks ago. Mom and I went one day and I paid for it. A'ndi took me over in her jeep the next day to pick it up. One of the photos from the fire had several benches -- my chair as a double wide -- and I was thinking about how lucky I was to get it then.

So now I guess we take rides to Jack's Mountain and then lunch at Red's or The Whistle Stop.

But I will miss Peachey's.

Love ya, bro. Miss you all the time.
