We’ll be eating there tonight...
Folks, the support being shown today is far greater than we could imagine!
My eye-witness account:
Okay. We decided to eat there for lunch instead. Actually we went to Truett’s diner.
The drive thru line stretched out to the road, then out into the main road. I’d say there were probably 75+ cars lined up. The parking lot was jam-packed, but that’s normal. What isn’t normal is the overflow parking that’s usually not full except when they’re having something special for the kids at New Year’s and July 4th - and it was full today.
People were parking at Sam’s, McDonald’s, and a nearby steak house. There was a traffic cop directing cars in addition to a young man who works there. The line was moving quickly as possible under the circumstances, but it was still a long wait. There was a young lady standing on the sidewalk with a walkie-talkie taking orders.
Everyone was happy, laughing and having great fun with it, with everyone knowing what a blessing the Cathy’s have been and feeling a bit of joy in being able to show our support to this wonderful and kind family.
This trip normally takes us 45 minutes or so to get there, place our takeout order, and get back home. Today we left at 11:45 and got just got home at 1:45.
Just a tremendous outpouring of support from the silent majority! Can you hear us now?!!!
