The locksmith eyed this birdfeeder and mentioned it might attract more bears than birds...oops.

Today, Fed Ex was delivering my much-feared (by me) Droid X cell phone. I was to stay in the house all day waiting for the knock on the door. However, an unexpected emergency came up in the form of hearing Mama and Daddy were eating at Matthews Cafeteria today because it was catfish day and "would I like to join them?"

Matthews Cafeteria.

 Just saying the name makes me sigh, and want to loosen my britches to make room for more vittles This family-owned establishment has been nourishing me and my kin for as long back as I can remember.

 In fact, the very first outing my son went on was to Matthews. He was all tucked in a snuggli like a papoose and I kept dropping fried chicken crumbs on his head. Not much has changed at Matthews. Ever since Diners, Drive-ins and Dives featured it, the crowds have increased, but the food is still the same. Fried chicken, green beans, macaroni and cheese, catfish, black-eyed peas, biscuits and tea, oh the ecstasy!

They always have a big ol' mess of fried chicken! Becky, if you're reading this, can you even count how many times we took the kids here for a big night of eating out?

And when you're done with supper, you can do a little produce shopping. Tomatoes, $1.75 a pound.

I found a tomato that was bigger than a man's fist. It was almost two pounds! I remember reading about a couple who ate tomato sandwiches for a month. The husband lost 15 pounds.

 Mmmm....a bacon, tomato, and lettuce sandwich with mayo on white bread. That's right...white bread. There are just some things better left alone.
