J. decided yesterday morning that we were due for a day off from the rigors of setting up housekeeping in a new place. He announced that we would head toward Renfro Valley, a destination of bluegrass and old time country music lovers. On the way he wanted to find a particular eating place.
My dear Wyoming neighbor, Sue, paid a visit to her sister in Kentucky last autumn. One of the highlights of Sue's trip was a meal at the Bread of Life Cafe. The cafe is part of a ministry established by Jerry Tucker and his late wife, Sandy, to provide care for handicapped and neglected children.
The interior of the cafe is homey, decorated in a style I call "country sampler" [after the magazine of that name] with a gift shop which sells many items featured in the decor of the dining area. The whole place had a happy bustling air. Jerry Tucker was eating at one of the corner tables, thronged about by young people who stopped to hug him, adults who lingered to chat.
We had a good meal chosen from a bountiful buffet. I was impressed that my tea was served with a fat brown teapot and a pretty flowered cup and saucer.
