Withdrawal

Cafe del Sol is closed this week while owners Frank and Sally Walker refinish the floors and do some remodeling. Which means I'm without my morning jolt of Java. True, I guzzle several cups of caffeine before leaving home each morning but the ritual stop at the Cafe is an ingrained part of my daily schedule, often turning into a multiple-hour sojourn. It happens like this. I drop by for a cup of coffee. Somebody I know comes in and we start talking. Then somebody else drops by and, before I know it, the morning is gone.

It happens like this. I drop by for a cup of coffee. Somebody I know comes in and we start talking. Then somebody else drops by and, before I know it, the morning is gone.

Sally and Frank’s coffee shop has become the gathering place for a diverse group of people, from the locals to the newcomers. In many ways it is the town square where people gravitate throughout the day.

I will miss that for the next week.
