It was only two weeks ago that I was at Jim’s for Strawberry Pie Week. The tip of the pointer finger on my right hand is still a little bit numb from cutting pies for six hours straight on that last trip. I am here for a little bit of research, and I am happy to report that I have already collected some delicious information. I brought the girls along this time, and they work pretty hard and eat pretty hard too. It is a true joy to share the family restaurant with them, and they seem to understand and appreciate all the levels of magic that are wrapped in the mystique of Jim’s. I’m not sure that they are really developing a “work ethic” here, but they do sincerely enjoy running the register, seating guests, and gathering to-go orders. This is already our second trip out of town since “summer break” began last Friday… I am grateful to be their dad.
