I stopped by on the new Burgman to say hi on Thursday (July 25) and she is doing fine. She said Jeaneace is also doing well.

Introducing the "new" Burgman to Rella's.


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...Burgman5sm.jpg
Mmmm... fresh graham cracker pie!


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...Burgman6sm.jpg
I get the first slice. :D



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...Burgman7sm.jpg
Nice dessert after a hearty burger.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...urgman10sm.jpg
Rella likes scooters! :evil


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...urgman13sm.jpg
Another photo with Rella to add to my archives. :D



**********************

For those of you who have never been there, I've added some photos below of past visits. She is located on Rt 20, about a mile south of the lumber mill at Hacker Valley, which is just south of Holly River SP. It's about 20 miles south of Rock Cave. You can call the diner at 304-493-6658. It is truly a unique dining experience. Tell her I said "Hi".



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...RR1Rellas2.jpg
Southbound on Rt 20, it's on your left just south of Hacker Valley.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...ellaVousI2.jpg
Now GREAT-GREAT-GRANDMA Rella. Cookin' up a storm for one of our gatherings.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...RR1Rellas7.jpg
Rella checking with everyone to make sure the food is good. It's always good!



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...RR1Rellas5.jpg
The famous pie fridge - always stocked with home-made goodies.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...os3/SRGT30.jpg
Shall we gather?



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...os3/SRGT31.jpg
One of our ADV gatherings. That's Rella in the back (R) with her daughter, Jeaneace (L).



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...os3/SRGT33.jpg
Enjoying the great food and company.


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...os3/SRGT34.jpg
Another day in the pie fridge.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...os3/SRGT36.jpg
Mmmmmm....



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...llaVousI18.jpg
And ANOTHER gathering.


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...ellaVousI1.jpg
The ADV gang.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...ellaVousI5.jpg
Good food, as always.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...ellaVousI9.jpg
Mmmmm, homemade pie.


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...llaVousI12.jpg
Enjoying a good home-cooked meal.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...llaVousI13.jpg
Just like Mom used to make.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...RellaFire1.jpg
Rella's house burned down in 2011, and we had a gathering for lunch.


http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...RellaFire8.jpg
Almost all of her belongings were destroyed in the fire.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...llaVousI17.jpg
Our ADV group collected over $1,300 to help Rella through the tough times.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4.../CUSTARD17.jpg
Later that year, she had a trailer moved onto the lot. She is living in there now.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...6/CUSTARD1.jpg
The ADV riders met a group of Canadian riders at Rellas for lunch last year.



http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...6/CUSTARD3.jpg
Fun, food, and meeting other riders.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...6/CUSTARD4.jpg
And, once again, the pie fridge was full of delicious goodies.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4...6/CUSTARD6.jpg
And, once again, great home-cooked food.




http://s207653679.onlinehome.us/wsb4.../CUSTARD15.jpg
Canadian riders, ADV riders, and translators. :d


OK - Please RSVP for Aug 17 or Sept 7 (or both)

I like PIE!
 
Sounds like a good idea pnoman. I can't do the 17th. Youngest granddaughters birthday party.
So I vote for the 7th.

Guy Young 07-27-2013 06:41 AM

I agree. The 17th. is out for me too; wife having a family reunion here for her side of the family.

5punksdad 07-27-2013 07:09 AM

sept 7th

H14 07-27-2013 09:52 AM

Mike, we've got a group heading that way Aug 17. Even though I can't make the Sept 7 date it gets my vote since two groups over two weekends would probably be better for her.

Good idea. Maybe I will post who's going to be at each one so you can avoid the scooter crowd. Hey wait, I resemble that remark! :rofl

Ooooorrrrrrrrrr........ you could come to both!

WVhillbilly 07-27-2013 10:53 AM

Don't want to vote on a date, because my work schedule could kill it at a moment's notice.
But "in" for what ever date is decided.

I'm working Sep 7, it would be nice to see you on the 17th. I think we'll have 10-15 in our group, how much notice should I give Rella?

I told Rella I would call a week out and she said that is plenty of time. Thanks for thinking of it. We want to give her as much notice as possible as to the number of people coming either day.

6USMC6 07-28-2013 09:05 AM

We're good for 7 Sept for sure and maybe 17 August.

wvrocks 07-29-2013 12:07 PM

Looks like I'm free for Sept 7th.

HBN 07-29-2013 12:10 PM

IN

I'm heading out that way Aug 17 weekend so that's my pic...company or not :deal

WVhillbilly 07-29-2013 01:23 PM

I'm out for Sept, 7th.

pnoman 07-29-2013 02:31 PM

Both Dates
 
How about both dates?

That will hopefully simplify things. I will make a "guest list" (subject to change, of course) so you can see who's coming.

There's nothing wrong with having 2 gatherings. If you can make both - great! If you can only make one, or if your schedule changes, then you can still meet folks. Or if it rains on Aug 17, then we have a backup.

Plus Rella gets to have visitors two times.

Everyone OK with that?

No problem here. I'm still planning on the 7th. due to the family reunion. Hopefully, the docs will have corrected this medical issue by then so I can ride.
