Restaurant Stageout

Whoops. I got excited and ahead of myself--Restaurant STAKEout.

My son and daughter in law think they might like to open a new restaurant in Chadron after he retires from the navy in a few years. I've seen at least 6 open and close in the last 10 years just in my little town and am worried about it sucking up their whole lives and then still failing and secretly want him to teach school or deliver mail and her to take some classes and get her nursing certificate. I think those are jobs they would each like and each be good at. In that respect I'm just like my mother--get skills so you can always get a secure job with benefits. None of this high risk, exciting but might fail stuff.

I keep telling them to watch Mystery Diners and Restaurant Stakeout so they can see what is in store for them and prepare themselves.

If it comes to it I hope I can keep my mouth shut and be supportive though. Currently I'm talking to them about moving me (and maybe themselves) up to Spearfish in a few years--up in the Black Hills. More likelihood of a success in the food business too what with the tourist trade. We will see.
