For several years now, IHOP has been sending mother and me “happy birthday” coupons for a free meal.  Today I went to pick her up so that we could have breakfast together.  When I pulled up into her driveway, my “low tire pressure” light came on.  After we ate, I took her back home and downloaded all her birthday pictures off her camera onto her computer for her.

On my way home, I stopped off at my oil change place to have them check my tires and fill the culprit(s) to recommended pressure.  While I was waiting my turn, I noticed a sign on their waiting room door:

Guns are Welcome on Premises
Please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises.
In such case, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.

Oh, did I mention that I live in Texas?
