We talked for darn near three hours and I'm not usually a talkative person until I've had 18 or 20 beers in me Maybe If I did have, I would have thought to tell them how the restaurant got its name

Your bread was very tasty Joe, and I can't wait until tomorrow morning to butter some up and have with my morning coffee.
I didn't notice this before I started the new thread about our meeting (the pictures are there for anyone who hasn't seen it).

We were wondering about how it got its name. How funny, when we went in James noticed the t-shirts, but he also noticed their beer. He said he hoped you didn't think he was weird leaving the table a little early, but he didn't know if you would think less of him if you knew he was buying a 6-pack of their beer, along with the t-shirts he got me! He didn't get 18 or 20 though! LOL

Think less of him? Uh-Noooo
If I didn't have to go back to work I would not have been drinking iced tea Believe you me.

Yeah, a couple locals want to change the name of the town to Freeport. I wish they would, but it will never happen. Apparently we would rather be associated with the other corner of the state
