Eating Great In The Neighborhood.......

That is the ad for Applebees..............

Yesterday, Terry and I had lunch at Applebees here locally. Now that in itself is not too exciting except for us. We both had steak dinners. What happened was that when we got in and sat down and ordered our drinks, I went to the restroom. Nothing exciting there either. LOL! When I returned to our booth, I just happened to look up at the wall right over my head. Usually, it is a picture of Marlryn Monroe, or Jimmy Stewart, or Elvis, etc., nostalgic stuff. However, when I looked up at the wall this time, I saw this:



I believe it was autographed too, but I'm not sure. It was about 3' by 5' or almost lifesize. It wasn't this cover of the Specials, but just the picture itself with no wording. I was surprised to see Shania up there on the wall with all the great actors and stars of all time.

I love when that stuff happens. My family hates it, but it is funny.

Yeah, I think each one has a little different nostalgic atomsphere. All the ones I've been to always have the local highschools memoriabilia up on the wall and you usually see pro sports things and of course all the famous history of famous movie stars and singers like Frank Sinatra, Louie Armstrong. Wonderful memories!
So, I was not looking for Shania as the Mrs. thinks. I didn't see it when we walked in to our booth. It was when I came back to sit down is when I noticed it. I think that is weird because I had to face it when I originally sat down. Anyway, it was big and up on the wall with all the other famous folks. Very nice.

The next time I go to our Applebees I will be checking out the wall more carefully!!! Like you said what I remember in ours is mostly local high school stuff and sports in general.

My radio station 94.9 WHOM-FM has this ad for the music they play. The ad is always done like this: "Whenever you hear a great song like this......or whenever you hear a favorite song like this........" They play a little bit of each song. They have at least six of these ads they do during the day that I've heard anyway. So, here is my favorite. "Whenever you hear a great song like this...Stay, just a little bit longer [Jackson Browne]...or a favorite song like this..."From This Moment, Life Has Begun....tune to 94.9......"

Terry and I ate at our local Applebees in Augusta for the first time in a long time, and guess what??? Shania's still there on the wall!!!



She has Elvis on one side and James Dean on the other.

I don't know if being on an old poster between two long dead guys is a great thing or not...

Remember This???



Well, fast-forward to a year later, October 2012.

We went to our Applebees here in Augusta last Sunday. We hadn't been there for several months. The first thing I always look for when I go in is the above poster. It has been there since they opened the restaurant. It was sandwiched between each booth by Marilyn Monroe and Elvis. Guess what? It wasn't there!!!

When the waitress came over she asked how we liked the restaurant's makeover, and how they had replaced all the former things with local sports and memorabilia. Of course I said it was nice and of course then I knew why Shania's poster was no longer there.

But , in any event, we had a great meal even though it was pouring cats and dogs....Waiter "Don't" Bring Me Water......... Oh well, as my grandma used to say "all good things must come to and end".
