After reading about all the free stuff being offered to veterans today by everyone from Macy's department store to the local pub, I decided to invest in one of those camouflage outfits and I've been walking around in it all day. (I didn't spring for the matching combat boots, so I'm wearing the felt-soled boots that I wear with my chest waders when I go trout fishing). Anyway, I started out the day with a free breakfast at a local chain restaurant, followed by $200 off my purchases at Macy's, then another free meal at another local eaterie. I caught part of the local Veterans Day parade, but I think I strained my back from all the stooping over to allow all those women to give me a hug and kiss while thanking me for my "service." I'd better take a nap now I'm within walking distance of at least a dozen happy hours that get started in about two hours.
