          Hey, it was great to see all you guys and ladies again, and the dogs were just great as always.  Hope somebody can post pix somewhere, figuring out how to post pictures on this website is like figuring out how to find Charlies without a GPS.
           
          PS: My friend's name is Jack, but what the heck, as Stan Freberg once said, it's close enough for jazz.

                Were the mealies as good as usual? Well, I had three and Gail had two...
                Our hosts were as welcoming as ever, it was a great pleasure to meet the legendary Hollyeats, and it was, above all, such a pleasure to sit at that battered round table with 10 dedicated eaters all crowded in and talking and talking about good eats and good places and good times.
                 
                People who like to eat are always good company...
                 
                Cheers, John

                  It was again a pleasure to rendezvous with the usual, plus two new, group of dog people. Joe and John Fencz are as delightful as ever and their mealies are still excellent.
                  It was a long way to travel for a hot dog but, again, IT WAS WORTH IT!

                                      Holly, thanks for the link.  I have been to the valley before and had I known about the mealie, I would have stopped and bought a couple.

                                            I got a chance to stop by and visit with Joe and John last week.  Most places you stop by to eat, here, it's like stopping to visit family.
                                             
                                            The boys were run ragged.  The Munch Mobile listed them as the best of the best(would we expect anything less),and they have been swamped.  John said they had over 100 new customers since the article ran.
                                             
                                            I have some pictures, but didn't get a chance to download them yet.  But let's give a tip of the hat to big g in joisey, 76 visits to CPR in two years.  You lucky dog!
                                             
                                            Oh, and the Mealies?  SPOT ON!

Hey Joe when was the last time you had Cebulas.

                                                    Had 3 Mealies and 3 with mustard & onion last Saturday at Charlie's Pool Room. The service and food were excellent as usual. They will be open on certain Monday's during the upcoming holiday season, call ahead to make sure you can get your order in 908 - 454 - 1364.

                                                        Spoke with Joe last week, still working on their improvements, hopefully they will be able to reopen by the Spring. Wishing Joe & John all the best.

                                                          That's really good news big g.  I have wondered many times how the boys are doing.
