July 16, 2006 was to be the 5 year anniversary of the Dockside
Diner. Instead it is just another day for myself and family.
Five years ago my husband Pat and I undertook a project that
everyone said would not make it. We showed them just shy of 5
years not to bad.
Some people seem to think that I owe them a explanation as to
why we chose to close the doors with such short notice. I feel
that is my business and my business only. From what I have heard
they are having the time of their lives swapping tales about
the reason though the rumor mill. If they think that they need
to talk to me, we are listed in the book. I can tell them in
person. That it is none of their beeswax. Or another thought
no parking, no road, no customers - not hard to do that math
To everyone else in the community a big heart felt THANK YOU
for your support, you are as missed as I have been told my cooking
I will be taking the summer off (the first one since moving to
Pat has taken a awesome job out of town, so I hope to be able
to travel with him. We live here and plan to stay, for our family
lives here.. I will be seeing all of you around soon. I feel
as if I am still in the grieving process by our loss.
To all my employees that stayed until the end you are loved and
Bambi, Dockside Dolly, Queen B, and many that I cannot print.
