Thanksgiving at the Gas Station?

This is a short blog…because I said so.

When I went to fill up my truck with gas yesterday, I was surprised by an invitation posted on every pump:

To thank all of our customers for their support, we would like to invite you for a FREE turkey meal!

Happy Thanksgiving

All these years of celebrating Thanksgiving with my family and friends on Thanksgiving, I found it hard to imagine spending it at the corner gas station.  It seems a nice gesture for those who can afford the gas to get to the station for dinner.  With gas prices being so unbelievably high in recent months, is serving a Thanksgiving dinner at the station a good idea?  What do you think? 

I’m really not sure what I think about this…but I have questions.

I grew up in Golden, CO in the 50’s, the child of a middle class housewife and a lifelong employee of the U.S. Post Office. My professional career spanned 25 years with the U.S. Government and I retired early. Today I am an Aging-in-Place Specialist (which does not mean I just sit in a recliner and watch football), a devoted “Papa” to my grandchildren and partner to my lovely wife. I’m a crusty old fart who appreciates a good cigar, an old car, an occasional game of golf, Blue Collar Radio, NASCAR and my Denver Broncos. At, I hold the title, “Chief of Questions.” Let’s see what you think about my questions and answers. Chime in!
