No place like home

The Friar Tuck’s loss is felt miles away. I grew up in Nevada City and Grass Valley, living there for many years. Although I no longer live there, most of my family does. I visit most every chance I can, and I always try to make my way to have dinner at, you guessed it, Friar Tuck’s. I now live in yet another small town in southern California called Rosamond. It’s near the Mojave Desert. Let me tell you, we have no place like Friar Tuck’s. I really hope Friar Tuck’s rebuilds, because there is no place like home.
