Gotta Respect a Business Owner Who’s in the Trenches with the Crew!
I spend a fair amount of time at the China Dine-ah and it seems whenever I'm there at the same time Lisa Wardwell, the owner, is, she doesn't have time to talk because she's bussing tables, serving orders, greeting customers or cleaning tables.

Dad just turned 80 this month and, for the first time ever, neither he or I had anyone to celebrate Thanksgiving with.

It was bound to happen eventually.
