A few weeks ago, I tried to call Rella's Diner in Hacker Valley WV and was surprised to get the "sorry this number has been disconnected or no longer in service" recording. :eek1 I waited for word from fellow riders but no one was in the area to check on her. Today, Stedlo and I rode down to see what was going on. We were relieved when we rode up and saw her car out front. Stedlo anxious to get some good food. Her springtime ramp dinner is coming up soon. Group photo with Rella, Stedlo and me (pnoman) Time to eat. Rella had just made a pot of chili and baked cornbread, so what other choice was there on a cool day? It was GREAT! Mmmmmm......... Riding down there with temps in the 40s made warm chili taste even better. Some of the groups have left their "signatures" on her pie fridge. OK, the rest of the story. Rella hurt her hip a few months ago and could not work. She had the phone disconnected because she wouldn't be using it and because they just raised her monthly rate $20 more. She is open for business now, but said it has been a very slow winter for business. Let's show our support and stop by for some good vittles! Thanks! .
