    Golden Corral - Mon Nov 15 6:15 pm - Impromptu OC Event!

    I know this one's coming in just under the wire, but in less than an hour I'll be leaving for the Golden Corral on the North side of Woodman, just West of Powers, in Colorado Springs in celebration of their Military Appreciation Monday Free "Thank You" Dinner:

    "The free meal is a special "thank you tribute" to any person who has ever served in the United States Military. If you are a veteran, retired, currently serving, in the National Guard or Reserves, you are invited to join us for Golden Corral's Military Appreciation Monday dinner."

    The military issue is just for the free buffet. You don't have to be or have been in the military to eat there this evening.

    I'll be arriving at 6:15 pm, and will (hopefully) be sitting towards the right of the cash register line when you walk in. I'll be wearing a tan floppy hat with the sides buttoned up, and am wearing a black sweater.

    We'll probably have to make do with smaller groups, but it would be nice to see one or two of our regulars there this evening!

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Follow-up

    The meal was wonderful, the place was packed, and the company was friendly. I wound up sitting next to three other retirees, and we mainly discussed religion. On the way out, one of them asked me why was I carrying a firearm, to which I replied, "personal protection." Another asked me the same question outside, so I answered with something more definative, along the same lines as the letter I just sent to Golden Corral for honoring those of us who served our country:

    As a retired USAF veteran, who protected and defended our Constitution for more than twenty years, I would like to thank you both for the wonderful dinner, as well as your support of and respect for our Constitutional freedoms, in particular the right to keep and bear arms in defense of self, friends, and family.

    THANK YOU!

    All three of them grinned, and one of them said, "I like that."

    Not surprised it was packed. A lot of us in the Springs. And hats off once again to Golden Corral for what they do every year. Plus, they have great fried chicken!

    I was wondering why there were lines out the door of Golden Corral.

    I need to check the forums more often.

    I went after I got out of school and there were no lines outside. Just inside. Not too bad though. I really love their ranch dressing. MMMMmmmm
