F.B. & Company in Waubeek on the river is where I go for lunch amid the work of cleaning out this old farmhouse.Fomerly a general store downstairs and hotel upstairs at the turn of the century, F.B. & Company offers a lunch special for $6.75. Tracy, a descendent of the warrior Waukon Decorah, is an excellent cook. If one is a drinker, the violence there in the evening and on weekends is quite manageable. One need only stay out of the way.
During lunch I can chat with Jack, who is reliably present, and catch up on news from the outside world.
Which is my own little joke. Jack has not had any contact with the outside world in years.
