Having a Nostalgic moment!

I don't know about your corner of the world.... but where I live in my tiny part of the U.S. of A no matter how much I might want to get out of this small city and experience someplace different..there are places, people, and things that have engrained themselves into a place in my heart where memories are stored and tucked away.

Wolfy's is no exception.

Wolfy's is a historic restaurant which has been a landmark in my city for many, many years. It's been here since my mom was a child. It's nothing extravagant but it's just something that's always been around, everybody knew what Wolfy's was.

I have alot of memories of Wolfy's.

Well, it burned down last night. For a few years my eating there has been kind of sporatic. But nonetheless it made me sad when I heard about this.

It almost made me want to cry, isn't it funny that a restaurant can do that to you? Sure it can be rebuilt and they might just do that, but it will not be the same. Driving by it is 10x worse. So they would totally have to knock it down and start from the ground up again. The interior will not be the same which I don't think had changed in about a million years. The smell when you walk inside wouldn't be the same. The same smell which you had always come to expect when walking in the doors. It was a comforting smell. It was a smell that brought the comforts of home, the comforts of the small town life.

This might all sound silly..... but it got me to thinking no matter what, things can burn down, restaurants can burn down, houses can burn down with all the material things inside of it. But the memories, those are the things that no fire can take away EVER.

And the memories of Wolfy's didn't go down with the fire... I can still picture in my mind the interior and the smell of the food, and can picture the waiters and waitresses that had been there for years that now no longer have a job.

But the memories, those still remain!

And now I'm laughing.... because did I just dedicate a whole blog post to a restaurant!!!

I'm sentimental, what can I say.

Simply said, this city just ain't right without Wolfy's!

I don't think this post was silly at all! I live in a small town as well and there are many places that I would be sad if they were to burn down.

It's totally bizarre that Wolfy's is gone. My mom actually worked there for some time (until January this year) so that makes it feel even stranger. Lots of memories.

Awe, that is sad! And it's not a silly post at all. I would feel the same way about some of our favorite restaurants.
