“And there was this toy, this snowstorm ball, with a tiny castle inside, except it was like a whole world, a world inside the ball…
It was like a little glass bubble of somewhere else.
I lifted it, starting a blizzard. I knew it wasn’t real snow, but I couldn’t understand how it fell so slowly.
I figured inside the ball was some different sort of time.
…And inside there was only water.”
Alan Moore – The Watchmen
I started eating in this neighborhood about 20 years ago. Huffman’s Bbq was my favorite spot to get fried chicken. Sadly while the building looks much the same they sell cell phones instead of my favorite crunchy fried chicken in town. The strip mall where Bonnie Jean’s is located looks much like when I first visited except the paint has faded and cracked on Bonnie Jean’s sign. Inside I feel like I have stepped into the past. Bonnie Jean still greets her guests and lets you decide where to sit. I appreciate the southern hospitality here. There are old board games. If my kid was younger I’d bring her and we would game. I notice they longer serve bbq ribs but there are many other fine dishes to try.
