Lunch with a friend.

Well, I was in Gary's back yard at the acadamy and we got together for lunch at a Chineese resturant. After the meal I brough up the subject of opening a BBQ joint when I get closer to retirement and asked if he would be interested in the venture. He told me to ask him again in 10 years. I said, "Lets open the fortune cookies and let them decide."

Mine read:

You will take a chance in something in the near future

Sounds like there will be a Q joint in our future.

Ahhh if life was only so simple as basing it on fortune cookie promises...

I had one last year that said I will soon be independantly wealthy....

I'm still waiting...... unless "soon" is a different time span in China...then I'm still in good shape!

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

Be sure that you can get a liquor license--you ain't gonna make any money on BBQ.
I see you've eaten their BBQ before.
