The Filling Station
On Sunday we visited a Bible Church in Dalton. Since we attend First Bible Church here in Decatur, we thought we would see if one was available in the area. Fellowship Bible Church is located on Dug Gap Road about a 30 minute drive from Grimmwood. We entered an empty parking lot only to find out the service started at 11 that morning in stead of the normal 10:30 start time listed on the website. We were welcomed into the gym where they were having a special Memorial Day service. It was a friendly gathering of about 150 people. The pastor was a young man and he told us a bit about the church. We were invited to stay for the Picnic lunch they were going to enjoy but we had already planned to have lunch at The Filling Station.
The Filling Station is a lunch buffet situated in an old gas station...often called Filling stations here in the south. When we arrived at 11:45, we walked right in, paid the flat fee and headed for the buffet. The food was very good and you could go back for refills. I never get my money's worth at this type of restaurant as I try to stay disciplined and eat smaller portions. Marvin however, got his money's worth on Sunday!! By the time we were finished there was quite the line outside waiting to be seated. While we were there we met a couple visiting the area from Huntsville, Alabama. It is a small world. On the way home we also stopped in at our favorite Mexican bakery. We picked up some bread and a few goodies there. I am slowly sampling their sweet treats.:)
Thanks for all the sweet comments on Audrey. She is a sweetheart and we hope we can see her more often now that we have a Georgia House. Today Landon and Kendall will be arriving for a half day as school is out and summer had officially started here in Nanaland.
