Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

The Galley Tradition

More Short Family tradition was carried out tonight. My dad every year likes to visit one of his favorite dinning places, called the Galley for his birthday dinner. The Galley is located in Decatur, Indiana. Every Monday and Tuesday they have an all you can eat fish and chicken buffet for $9.99 from 4PM to 8PM. If at all possible I get a personal day and my dad, mom and brother and I go for dinner. We also do this again in August for my parents wedding anniversary. My dad loves the fish here and thinks it's the best. I think it's good. A lot of people must agree with my dad though in as it's always busy. The atmosphere is as you might expect from the name. It's decked out to be the galley of a boat and there is even a little boat where the salad bar is actually located. I go for the family time since family means everything to me. Today I really have not felt that well. Still trying to get well and still afraid to eat almost everything since I don't know what it is that is causing these episodes of rashes and swelling. I doubt I was the best of company tonight but I tried to go and have fun. I actually feel better now than I did earlier today though. With the economy the way it is these days I am hopeful that places like the Back Forty and the Galley can hang in here through the economic slump. There are a few of the "special" places that we don't go that often. Sometimes these types of places have a tendency to go away. Memories we hold forever in our heart though. So if you get an opportunity and don't mind the drive down twenty-seven to Decatur you may want to check out the Galley and their Fish. Whether for buffet or just a sandwich it's a nice little get away from the day to day. It's also part of a family tradition. One my dad really looks forward to and I'm glad I get to be a part of. Again I don't know how my brother and I got so lucky, but we have truly been blessed with the most wonderful parents that children could ever ask for.
