I am not seeing any improvement on the Covid-19 cases. In fact, the numbers are increasing. Thus, more restrictions, as we continue to move ever so slowly toward everyone re-opening. I know that this is very frustrating for everyone and I am hopeful that we don’t slip backward. More restrictions would make it nearly impossible to provide good service, making it an enjoyable experience for the customers and the staff while still making a decent living with fewer tables.

With all of the racial turmoil that is taking place in our nation right now, it is hard to believe that this is America. C’mon people! My pastor reminded me of the chorus that we learned as kids in Sunday school: “… Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight: Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

This time of year, we need to extend congratulations to all of the 2020 graduates. Our schools and community really stepped up to help the students get recognized. WELL DONE, graduates, as you begin a new chapter in your lives.
