Driving home from school today I saw a large, temporary sign beside the bypass that made me want to slam on my brakes and cause a tremendous traffic jam.
I managed to resist that urge, but did go around a couple of blocks (which involved weaving through a mobile home sales lot, cutting through a strip mall parking area, and driving right through a bank drive-up lane - - - but that's another story for another post)
And what sign could possibly have had this great effect on me???? (Is that the right effect, or should it be an affect - - - I can't keep those straight.)
The large yellow sign said: "Moe's Open"
Now, I had eaten for the first time (on the way down), and also the second time (on the way back) in a Moe's in the Atlanta airport on our last trip to Florida. Someone commented on this very blog that Moe's was coming to Marion, but I knew neither when nor where.
Thus, my quick detour around the block (sort of) to come back and check it out.
Tonight after our Baccalaureate service, my friend Diane and I stopped in to do more than just check it out. The "more" included eating.
I don't think I'm the only one who is excited to have Moe's in Marion. . .
We had to wait in a Wal-Mart-esque line to order our food - - - but that's OK, we saw people we knew waiting right there with us.
We carried our tray of food to the sidewalk dining area. (That's fancy talk for a picnic table.) (What silly photographer left her little pink camera case right there to ruin this shot, and then did NOT EVEN have the sense to edit it OUT of the picture?????)
The food did NOT disappoint!!!
Goooood stuff - - - sodium and all.
