A snippet of sadness for today

Yesterday a friend took me out to breakfast at my favorite local place -- Stony Creek Koney Island, affectionately called the Stony Koney. Today I took a friend out to lunch there.

Our waitress, recognizing me as a regular spoke to me in a quiet voice as she provided the bill. It seems that she was not supposed to learn this until after they closed today, but this is the last day they're going to be open.

I thought they were doing well. They're usually full of people. I've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner there -- occasionally all three over the same weekend. This is the place I bring out of town friends and family.

It breaks my heart. I like all the waitstaff I've met there. I like the food quite well. I usually ordered the same thing for breakfast, but everything I've tried has been good. The prices were reasonable.

No. When I drove home from the Ark that night, the slats were closed on the windows, and it looked like brown paper was set up inside so you just couldn't see in.

It _might_ get a reprieve. I'm not sure what to believe.
