It was a quiet day for us today. Thankfully one of my friends, Sali, was ordering dinner for her family from Bob Evans. It sounded like a good thing to do and I suggested it to Ron. He liked the idea and we did the same. We have a Bob Evens near us, so it made it easy. We ordered a few days ahead to be ready at 2:00 today. We went to pick it up and in spite of having been told it would be ready at that time, we found a long line. Ron stood in that line for about 40 minutes. It was cold out, and that is the first time I ever heard Ron complain of chilling.
Thankfully, the dinners were large and very good. While we had a good experience, my friend's family got home from a different Bob Evans with a pumpkin pie that had not been baked.Yes, really. It is hard to believe, but we saw the picture. The filling was a liquid that spilled out in the box and dripped all over everything. When they called, they were told they were out of pumpkin pie and so her husband went back to the restaurant to pick up an apple pie.
Dinner was good, but it just isn't the same as sharing the day with family. Prayerfully, things will be back to normal by this time next year. Actually I'd like to see it back to normal really soon, like before Christmas.
