His birthday is Feb 28, so I'll be going to another favorite- Steak n Shake. He lived for those black & white milkshakes! Sigh
Right on xetaprime!!! I had places like that with my dad. Next time at at the OG I'll remember your story and your dad.

So my wife and I are traveling and decided to have dinner in an Olive Garden restaurant. Below is a wallhanging picture that was next to our table. I think itís supposed to make the viewer think itís an old world (Italian) setting. I think itís staged. Those bikes look as if theyíve never been ridden...not the bikes that old Italian guys would be tooling around the town on. I've been there and the old guys tool around on old bikes that are well-use, dirty, rusty, etc.

looks like George Bush asking for directions..........Cheney looks little grizzled.

No reason to believe the photo is fake.

And BTW I like Olive Garden. The salad is great as are some of the dishes.
