I miss the Sambo's restaurant of my childhood with the gorgeous painted murals on all the walls.

Heh... it's kind of funny that Denny's purchased several of the locations when the corporation started to falter, given Denny's own controversy later in Maryland when they served refuse to some of the black patrons.

It's a shame, though, that Sambo's was associated with the Sambo characters, given that the name was actually a combination of 'SAM' Battistone and Newell 'BO'hnett, the two who started the chain.

If you *really* want to see racism in restaurants, research the Coon Chicken Inn.

Did you mean "refused to serve" or was it really "served refuse to"?

Either one is bad, but one is much, much worse...

That's the magic behind that sentence, where you can swap the words around and the meaning still works.

"served refuse to" could describe any Delaware "pizza" shop.

So, I hear Hacha is back in the area, in case anyone was wondering what she's been up to.

Ok it's Oregon then, but wasn't she down under at some point? Like when she first left 914?

after college she went down under for a bit, yea. I dunno where she landed when she first got back, I had lost track of her at that point.

...packed into a couple of tables at a diner, not a care in the world? Good times :)

We managed to do it last week, but the place has always had a covered outdoor seating area. It was still wonderful.

Very good times, though. I was young, the industry was booming, opportunity seemed endless, I was newly wed and upwardly mobile. 

The road getting here was far tougher, with bigger setbacks and way more curveballs than I expected.

I mowed grass last weekend. And relocated 2 mice that got into the house.

I'm just tons of fun.
