Friday Night in Bluffton, Ohio

Following my cousin's visitation at the church on Friday night, my family and I ate at the Mustard Seed Cafe at the Depot.  After a day of travel and emotion, it was a time to just sit and be in a restaurant that was open late.

Once upon a time, one of our relatives had an antique/furniture restoration business there.  And of course, before that, it was a train depot.  

It isn't a large space, more like a cozy space.  Little lights and pictures hanging from the ceiling.  An easy place to order for the family vegetarians.

I knew, of course, that there is now alcohol served at a couple of restaurants in town, but this was my first time actually experiencing it.  Surely it was controversial at the time it was implemented.  I wonder, did it take more than one vote to get it through?  Was there a vote or did it happen some other way?

At any rate, I enjoyed the pumpkin flight, four seasonal beers, all of them good, a nice touch with my vegetarian flatbread.

My condolences on your loss. It gets harder each time we lose someone --at our age.
I feel the clock ticking.

It was a bittersweet occasion. It was so nice to sit with the family after so long for a nice dinner. But it was so sad to go to Bluffton and not see Gregg. There is no way to properly express what a gift he was to our family.
