Mon., Nov. 11 - Today is Veterans' Day and Ken is a Veteran of two wars -- The Korean War when he was only 19 years old, and Desert Storm in 1990-91.  A lot of well known establishments pay honor to Veterans every year with special offers.  We usually enjoy some of the "freebies" that are offered.

We were headed for Denny's for free pancakes, but we saw Bob Evans first and stopped there  instead.  Their pancakes were delicious, but we felt Bob Evans Free pancakes cost more than Free pancakes at Denny's.  But then, Bob Evans gave Ken a coupon for a free entree in December.  What can I say!!  Thank you, Bob Evans!

We had already planned to go to Great Clips in Citrus Tower, Clermont, FL for hair cuts because we have used Great Clips the last few times we needed hair cuts.

Imagine our surprise when we saw a sign in the window that Veterans were given a Free hair cut on November 11.

Not only did Ken get a Free hair cut on Veterans' Day, but Great Clips gave him a Thank You card that offered another complimentary hair cut in December!!  Thank you, Great Clips!!

For dinner on Veterans' Day, Ken chose to go to Chili's, only a couple of miles from TT Orlando.  We LOVE their "Onion Strings and Jalapeno" appetizer!!  We were expecting to order Ribs for dinner; however, Chili's offered a very limited menu to Veterans, and Ribs were not on the list.  While we did enjoy our dinner at Chili's, I think next year Ken will choose TGI Fridays as in previous years.  Thank you, Chili's, for honoring our Veterans!

THANK YOU to all Veterans for your service!!
