She said Jeaneace is also doing well. Introducing the "new" Burgman to Rella's. Mmmm... fresh graham cracker pie! I get the first slice. Nice dessert after a hearty burger. Rella likes scooters! Another photo with Rella to add to my archives. ********************** For those of you who have never been there, I've added some photos below of past visits. She is located on Rt 20, about a mile south of the lumber mill at Hacker Valley, which is just south of Holly River SP. It's about 20 miles south of Rock Cave. You can call the diner at 304-493-6658. It is truly a unique dining experience. Tell her I said "Hi". Southbound on Rt 20, it's on your left just south of Hacker Valley. Now GREAT-GREAT-GRANDMA Rella. Cookin' up a storm for one of our gatherings. Rella checking with everyone to make sure the food is good. It's always good! The famous pie fridge - always stocked with home-made goodies. Shall we gather? One of our ADV gatherings. That's Rella in the back (R) with her daughter, Jeaneace (L). Enjoying the great food and company. Another day in the pie fridge. Mmmmmm.... And ANOTHER gathering. The ADV gang. Good food, as always. Mmmmm, homemade pie. Enjoying a good home-cooked meal. Just like Mom used to make. Rella's house burned down in 2011, and we had a gathering for lunch. Almost all of her belongings were destroyed in the fire. Our ADV group collected over $1,300 to help Rella through the tough times. Later that year, she had a trailer moved onto the lot. She is living in there now. The ADV riders met a group of Canadian riders at Rellas for lunch last year. Fun, food, and meeting other riders. And, once again, the pie fridge was full of delicious goodies. And, once again, great home-cooked food. Canadian riders, ADV riders, and translators. :d OK - Please RSVP for Aug 17 or Sept 7 (or both) .
