We had a surprise invitation to share a gift card given to my cousin, Hunter Hollar. The restaurant was the Local Chop and Grill House. (Construction on the building began in 1911. The four-story brick building originally contained well over an acre of floor space. Click here to read more: Wetsel Seed Company)
Even though the menu was upscale and fancy, we all managed to find something that we liked, including delicious desserts.
Hunter and I grew up together and our families shared many activities, especially with the Youth Fellowship at church. Then, when Hunter was at U.Va. and I was at J.M.U. which was then mostly a girls college, he really liked me because I fixed him up with girls! We've kept in touch through the years and I never cease to enjoy his company. He married Mary Margaret, whom I just love, and they raised two lovely redheaded girls. Hunter became president of a bank in Maryland and recently retired here in Singers Glen.
We always have a barrel of laughs when we go out with Hunter and Mary Margaret!!!
p.s. Hunter, take note -- you've really made it in the world -- you're on our blog!
