And speaking of food, this post is titled "Dinner at the Nifty 50's" so I best tell you where that is.
Check it out in the photo below...........
If you are passing through (or are near) the little town of Lehigh, Iowa and you'd like a good burger and fries or the Sunday dinner (ham or pork loin and all the fixings) that my mom and I enjoyed this past weekend, well, you should stop at the little cafe on Main Street called "Nifty 50's". Don't be deceived by the empty stools. There are folks on the left that I couldn't include in the photo because I didn't know them and wasn't sure I wanted to interrupt their dinner to ask if they would mind being on my blog.
From the Nifty 50's we went on to the Care Center to visit friends. Coffee hour is at 2:00 so I had brought along some of my Irish tea cakes that I had put in the freezer just so I could bring them along. My mom bought a cinnamon brunch cake at Wal-mart that was incredibly delicious! Everyone enjoyed the goodies and we had a nice visit. That's my mom, Mary, in the photo above and her friend, Jean, to her left. Also visiting that day were Lucy (left) and cousin Shirley (holding the coffee cup). Jean reads my blog so "Hi Jean!!"
As you walk out of the dining area this quilt rack is along the wall and every so often the quilt is changed. I liked this elongated churn dash pattern. And yes, it's a walk down Memory Lane when we visit there. I love good memories and sharing them. That's precisely why I called my pattern business, Pleasant Memories. I consider myself blessed to have so many pleasant memories to recall. :-)
Very tired tonight so I am "hitting the hay" before midnight! How can that be? Thinking that a good night's rest might mean more energy for me for tomorrow!
