We had given a little history of Rich Grimm's Let's Eat Care, and mentioned it was moved in- to the former Sherrod Furniture and Undertaking building. Mattie Lee said she and her sister ran the Let's Eat Care in the long, narrow room two doors south of Riley's. Then Gone decided it needed to be in a larger building, so he went to talk to Mrs. Sherrod, who said she would rent it, but only because it was Gene who asked her. She had turned numerous other people down. Gene also bought the equipment of the old White Way or White Castle care where the Perkins Body Shop is located today, and moved it in- to the new care. When we came here in 1954, Gordon Hughes and his wife had just bought the care from Mrs. Whipple. Following that, ff our memory serves us right, the local restaurant has been own- ed by Lawrence and Rosalyn Baker, who sold it to Rich and Rosa Grimm, who sold it to Arlis Riley.

You've heard this before I'm sure, especially from the teen- agers, "Isn't there something different to eat?" {You want to remember there wasn't any Mc- Donald's, Hardee's or Burger King's at that time.} In the evenings when there wasn't much stirring around town, Rosalynn was willing to prepare about anything we wanted as 10ng as she had the fixings in the kitchen. I especially remem- ber those cold winter evenings we'd put away a half
