Homecoming at Graham Friends Church

Tomorrow is homecoming at my church. Big meal afterward, so I guess I will definitely get to eat good tomorrow.  I'm not sure whether this will be the second or third homecoming at GFC for me.  The years all run together.

This past week I ate at the Mellow Mushroom in Durham on Thursday night for the THMMC Tranquil Triangle Thursdays.  Pretty good restaurant.  Got a calzone and a Greek salad.  Can certainly tell it is a chain though.  Speaking of chains, one that I really despise even though I find myself eating there quite a bit is Subway.  I would much rather have a Jersey Mike's any day of the week.  The problem I have with Subway is how everything is so measured out.  On a footlong - four slices of meat, four slices of cheese, four slices of tomato, etc.  This past week on the 2 Guys Named Chris show I heard Dave (this was all best of stuff) make a comment in disbelief about Subways being around back in the 80's.  Indeed they were.  Back then there was a Subway on Hillsborough Street at the corner of the NCSU campus.  Only a short walk from Sullivan Dorm, so a favorite place to get subs.  Back then they still cut the meat themselves and actually built a real sub (like Jersey Mike's does now).  That was when Subway was good.  Alas, change.

Meanwhile, looks like we have stumbled upon our next great adventure for the MINI club.  Or at least a long weekend of motoring.  Will be doing some research into a route nicknamed "The Snake" which is basically Hwy 421 from Boone heading northwest.  Until then, I have to get ready for my Howl at the Moon Run.  Question is, will I be able to get my new GPS before then?  And this coming weekend I get my head shaved for a St. Baldrick's event as part of the THMMC team.
