    Thumbs up Open Carry Get Together With Our Veterans At Lizzy's Green Cafe Friday the 17th!

    Yes folks we are doing it again! For those of you that missed it last Friday we are having another get together for another group of homeless Veterans. The cafe opens this Friday at 4 p.m. and closes at 10. I'm sure the "usual suspects" will be there (Thanks Guys N Gals!) and I hope to meet some new folks too.

    If you have never been to Lizzy's you are missing a great experience! Lizzy, Adam and Elijah are great as are the staff! Everyone is always treated as family and the ambiance is amazing.

    I should be there by 6 or so! Looking forward to this Friday!

    Added: Lizzy has an Elvis impersonator for this Friday! If you missed the Frank Sinatra impersonator last Friday stop in for dinner this Friday and see/hear the Elvis impersonator!

    I'm still debating. If I do go, I'll be there early (like ~5 and stay until whenever), otherwise I will not be attending.

    Mrs and I lookin forward to it.

    She got something cleared with Lizzy and Marcy so these guys will be taking
    something along with them.

    Should be a good time and We will see ya all there !!!

    RCAWDOR, Will she need someone there early to help unload from the bus??

    Last time it went pretty smooth,but as the night cooled down the p/lot did get a little slick
    in some places.

    Pat, I don't think they will need any help this time. These guys range in age from the low 20's to I believe 70's. Yes, I know....young and back from Afghanistan/Iraq and they have nothing. What a way to go after fighting for your life and country in a foreign land.

    I spoke with Lizzy and she intends for the Vets to arrive by 4:30 and eat at 5. I don't know how long they can hang out but probably about the same amount of time as the last group...say 6:30??

    Thanks Pat and Angel! Looking forward to seeing you two again! I have more to tell you guys as well as Frank and Steve but that will have to wait till Friday night.

    See you then!

    Thanks,...Yeah Mrs was on the phone back and forth with Lizzy to get a head count for the little project she is working on and I never thought to ask her

    I just got an approval to reveal the nature of the project.

    Mrs has a small home silk screen machine so she plans on printing up some T shirts...(I suggested long sleeve or thermal but with the limited funds it would cost more than we could swing)...she went with regular t shirts.

    The conflicts from Vietnam to Iraq listed on the left upper shoulder and on the chest "Thank You for Your Service....(and then under neath that) We werent there but We Care.

    Both Marcy and Lizzy went ga ga at the idea.....I think Mrs wants to take some pics again so we will swing in kinda early 4:30 or so and run till the end like we did last week.

    ETA: Glad to see your gonna be there as well Handy.

    I do not believe I will make it tonight. Sorry for the late notice. If something changes I'll be there but don't count on it. I will be at breakfast in Brookfield tomorrow, however.

    It was a very Elvis Open Carry event. Lots of veterans got to enjoy a good meal and entertainment with the help of some of the members here and Lizzy. As usual, good conversations with fellow OC aficionados were had and the cause represented well.

    Once again I am impressed with the warmth and generosity of Liz, her crew, and the members of WCI, Inc.

    A special thanks to Frank for becoming my personal Guru and for talking me down off the ledge. I am a duck. I am a duck.

    Whew...busy day for us....Glad its over.

    Mrs busted her a+s to get all the shirts done. Which were very well received by The Vets.
    I got a comment from one of The Vets,about how I was the first person he had ever seen OC'ing.....Not quite sure how he missed the rest of us OC'ing plus Handy and Protia were there well before we were.
    Food was fantastic as always.
    Elvis was good....kinda loud tho,for my taste....it was very difficult to hold a conversation with Springfield and Protias while Elvis was beltin out the tunes.

    We had to leave abit earlier than I would have liked,but Mrs was done in.
    By the time I had her loaded up in the truck to head to Lizzy's she was pretty well medicated to get thru the rest of the evening.
    She was dozing while I was listening and talkin with the rest of the WCI bunch after we had finished our meal.

    Hope to see some at breakfast on Sat.
