near the end of the dairy bar
fifty-four out of the seventy-three years that my grandfather's restaurant has been open, this well bow-tied gentleman has been frequenting that establishment. still, he can be found at least three times a week at the bar, usually down towards the end near the grill. it is loyal customers like this that have helped turn my grandfather's idea into a famous institution. he has probably paid any number of my bills with his appetite for Jim's; for that, i am grateful. he was also one of a number of young boys who spent countless hours at my grandparents house... using it as a second home and receiving love from some of the warmest people that i know. as i am in huntington now for thanksgiving, and will soon be heading down to "the store" maybe i will see him at lunch. thanks for eating at Jim's.
