Went to a local restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch only. While on a commercial street, it is not a chain (Village Inn, Denny’s, etc.) and the customers are mainly locals. Older crowd, lots of canes and walking sticks present. The wait staff are wonderful but it is not Hooters. All are North of thirty five.
I ended up at a table in the middle. The three tables around me were filled with people solving the problems of the world. In no particular order I overheard the following topics.
Utah’s welfare system.
Salt Lake City gas stations.
USDA agriculture subsidies (in some depth and passion).
The state of the oil business.
If a certain county road will ever be paved past a County
What the green stripes the city has been painting on the
streets are for.
Cruz, Shillary, Bernie and Trump. Nothing favorable.
The merits of different types of carpet kickers (stretchers).
I did have the small chicken fry (didn’t overlap the plate), hash browns with extra gravy on them, scrambled eggs and added sourdough toast for a more healthy meal.
Fortified, I then changed the spark plugs on middle son’s car. I don’t do anything heavy anymore but this was a simple job, and under $20. I use NGK with Iridium tips. A bit more money but I’ve had good luck with them.
Yes sir, living the wild and crazy retirement life right here in Northern Colorado.
