The Throwback


“I’m hungry,” Larabie complained to Miz Kitti.

“Let’s go in there and have some hot dogs or something,” his friend suggested.

“Very funny, Mac,” she admitted.

    Larry, with all the flash cooking shows you see these days, good to hear this dive receive a bit of free publicity. By the sound of it, it could use an “Eat here at your own risk” sign out the front.
    I was down at our local beach yesterday checking out a beached yacht and was chatting with another local. He filled me in on a local takeaway where he popped in to get breakfast and was served a pie out of the freezer and an instant coffee. We were both ashamed. Fortunately, the place has closed down!
    Best wishes,
