70 Sonny’s Way
Category: Dining Out
My meal: Full rack of baby back pork ribs, french fries, garlic bread, corn nuggets and Coke®
Several weeks back I had some relatives in town and took the opportunity to have lunch at Sonny’s with a “cousin-in-law.” We had a good chat on the drive over and I even promised I’d try to find my golf clubs for the next time he visited.
Now, the new Sonny’s seems a lot more spacious than when they were at their previous location and obvious consideration for handicapped patrons was put into the new design. As a result, wheelchair ramps on the sidewalks, a large entrance foyer between the double sets of doors and plenty of tables in both smoking and nonsmoking sections should enhance the dining experience for all disabled patrons.
It was a little after noon and we were quite hungry when we got to our seats. Once there we were quickly offered menus by our waitress, Genetta. She seemed very friendly as she took our drink orders, Coke® for me and a root beer for my cousin, which she promptly brought to our table.
Sonny’s menus are very complete and nicely done with photos and descriptions of quite a few items. I wanted to compare the baby back ribs to some others I’d eaten recently so I ordered a full rack.
My cousin may have been in more of a feeding frenzy than I since he ordered the “all you can eat” special of St. Louis style ribs. I chose french fries but later remembered the excellent baked sweet potatoes available here. Oh well ... next time. I also ordered the corn nuggets that my wife introduced me to several years back. Yum.
April evokes memories of 1974 Super Outbreak
Spring is a wonderful time of year. Everything is in bloom and, of course, there’s baseball.
But every time a nasty storm begins brewing in April, I think back to 1974.
Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the so-called “Super Outbreak” — a violent string of tornadoes that cut a swath across middle America and killed more than 300 people in the process.

I come from the era of vinyl records. Back then folks looking for the subversive accused bands of planting “messages” in their songs that could be heard when the record was played in reverse.

The pain (and joy) of being a Jets fan
January 12, 1969. I was 8 years old and ended that day on top of the world. My favorite football team, the New York Jets, had shocked the experts and won Super Bowl III.
That was 45 long — very long — years ago.
