|My Grandpa Theabold in the 1930's to the 60's at one of his cafes "Theabold's Lunch|
For Christmas this year my wife surprised me with this framed photo of my Grandpa in front of his cafe. It was the first I had ever seen this photo. I was so thrilled. It is now hanging in my office. My grandpa owned and operated cafe's in Gallop New Mexico for years. His cafe's were named The Luxury Cafe, Club Cafe, Theabold's Drive In and Theabold's Lunch He was a restaurant man, which explains where I get it from. He was really old when I was a boy. In fact he was about 20 years older than my grandmother. I never saw him cook, he was retired and worked in his wood shop when we were around. But his legacy of food was in our family. I have in my house his meat knife that he used in his business and a large mixing spoon, treasures to be sure. My grandmother was a great cook and worked for him as a waitress, that is when he fell in love with her. She baked all the pies for the cafes and her pies were amazing.
