cr1039/wcat: this is just so strange that someone can get married, have kids, or fight in IRAQ and die, or consider to be old enough to drive but cannot buy a glass of wine at dinner, no?

I received an email from a friend. We are making every Friday, "Red Shirt Friday". It is a way for the American citizen to show his/her support for the troops. Wear Red Shirts on every Friday until all the troops come home. Let's have a wave of red across America in support of the troops. I'm going to the store tomorrow and I am purchasing my red shirt.

you can buy your child a drink in Texas no matter what age they are. Texas recognizes the parents ability to know what is best for their own child. I do not often agree with that ability after reading a lot of local news stories, but it is a good principal to base a law on. That waiter should have learned that in the TABC class, but was obviously sleeping during that portion of it. So far only Chili's has refused to follow the law (their option) on that one with me, but both of mine are 21 or older now, so no biggy.

RD....the TABC has left it up to the establishment to decide if they are the proper venue for allowing a minor to drink alcohol. In my daughters case...she is old enough (age 27), but didn't have her ID for proof. And yes...Chilis was the offending restaurant. Chili's has the right to refuse to do it, but my problem was with this nerdie waiter almost yelling at me about it. But to have the MANAGER come over and tell me that her employee was doing the right thing, without allowing me to explain was really bad policy. I didn't even call for the manager. I just wanted that idiot waiter to go away. If the restaurant manager was doing her job, she would have listened to me FIRST....not that I wanted to pursue it. Geesh...it was ONE margarita....my daughter survived without it....and we saved $6 and a TIP.

Speaking of uniforms (in another thread)....I was at an estate sale a few weeks ago and it had three generations of belongings!...all old. There were some very old nurses uniforms, military uniforms (Navy) and hats and gloves and furs! My daughter an I had a ball. I wish could have salvaged those uniforms...they were old but in mint condition. Great for Halloween costumes and all. I don't know what they do with all that great stuff that is kind of useless when it doesn't sell.

Don't see that kind of estate sale very often anymore.

Yes, it is up to the establishment. I had to get TABC certified for a volunteer function when I was active duty and that was one of the many things we learned. Pretty interesting class BTW. My main issue was with Chili's that day because they also would not cook my burger as low as I wanted it. I again realize that is their right, but I really don't like having a restaurant dictating how I live my life. I won in the end because I have not been back to a Chili's since.
and I found this article kinda ironic after what I posted about Texas leaving decisions up to parents.. Texas Law Challenged After Man Allegedly Forces Daughters to Watch 'Hardcore Porn' - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com There's nothing more annoying than people taking advantage of a common sense law like that.

We are going to Jamaica in Dec.!!! Revisiting the honeymoon resort, YAY!

I youtube'd "the office + sandals" trying to find the scene where Michael is singing:

"I've got two tickets to paradise, why don't you pack your bags and leave for Sandals Jamaica with me tonight Jan..."

But instead I came up with odd shots of womens feet under their desks. ~~Shudder~~, ewww.

Yeah, think about that one for a sec...

Well...we all know parents that have not business being parents, but I certainly am not for having "the village" raise my child either. IYKWIM
