Father's Day

Or is it Fathers' Day? Either one, I'm taking the day off. We set out for a new breakfast place since it was a special day and ended up in a classy place that we wouldn't ordinarily visit. Going in, the maitre'd or the worker who met us said that the buffet is over here where you can get potatoes, fruit, bacon, rolls, sweet rolls, scrambled eggs, etc., and over there is where you can get omelettes, bagels, toast, hot rolls, etc., help yourself.

We dug right in. I chose an omelette with ham, cheese, green peppers, jalapenos, onions and what not and the omelette maker whipped it right up. My wife had a bagel with cream cheese, fruit, bacon, and so on. We enjoyed it immensely with hot coffee and water and a nice atmosphere. There was a ball team of some sort and other people stuffing the food and enjoying themselves. After we had had our fill, we asked the waitress where we paid the bill and she said.....she said...."You're not guests?" We shook our heads in the negative and she said, "It's free, then. We don't have a cashier for breakfast."

"Ahh, Father's Day! What a great day!" I whispered as we left the hotel by a different entrance than we came in.

We hope yours was good, too!


  1. Sounds like a dream meal to me, free food is always very, very tasty!I had a great day also, nice picnic with our youngest and his famly and calls from my other kids.

  2. My conscience bothers me doing things like that, but it didn't ruin the day. With family is the best way to celebrate, like you did.

  3. I had a good outback steak lunch for Father's day.
