"People like to deal with farmers. They like to buy stuff from the farm. They think it's fresher . In their mind, it's better and they're willing to pay more for it." --Bob Evans, Sausage King
Good mourning, Widows.
Joy to you and me.
Welcome famous widow, Jewell Evans, wife of famous sausage king restaurant owner, Bob King, to our joy-ous club. The club nobody wants to joy-n.
Jewell joy-ned our joy-ous club on June 21, 2007. Her beloved husband, Bob, was 89 years old.
After World War II, Jewell's husband founded a $1.6 billion in sales restaurant chain from a 12-stool 24/hour-a-day steakhouse in southeast Ohio.
Anyone smart enough to purchase 1,000 $9 shares of Jewell's husband's stock would own shares totalling more than $2 million today.
We wish Jewell Evans, her five children, and her 12 grandchildren, mourning joy all the days of their lives.

"We're on a mission from God." --from The Blues Brothers screenplay by Dan Aykroyd and John Landis
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open your joy-nal. Set the timer for ten.
What is your mission? Do you have one?
What are you waiting for?
Write something. I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day, Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
