1st Saturday LTC breakfast: Terrell/Tyler/East Texas friends.

For a while now, North Texas LTC friends have been having breakfast together on selected Saturdays at 800 AM. We have great conversations and hear all kinds of stories from others' life experiences. It's enlightening to put a screen name with a face.

2nd Saturday = Dallas side of DFW, held at Rudy's BBQ in Frisco, Texas.
3rd Saturday = Fort Worth side of DFW, held at Rudy's BBQ in Arlington, Texas.
4th Saturday = Fort Worth side of DFW, held at Manny's Cafe in Hudson Oaks, TX (population 1,024; near Weatherford).

With this thread, I am kicking off "1st Saturday LTC breakfasts" for those LTC friends who are east of Dallas.

Site : County Pride Restaurant, 1700 Wilson Road, Terrell, TX 75161. This is on the eastbound side of I-20, exit 503, inside the 18 wheeler truck stop.
Date: 1st Saturday of each month. The first one will be October 5, 2019.
Time: 800 AM until whenever we get tired of talking.
Open Carry: Allowed.
WHO: Lena is from Cash, Texas, and will try to make it. I will be there. I'm looking to have LTC friends from Mesquite, Forney, Terrell, Seagoville, Kaufman County, Canton, Van Zandt County, Wills Point, Tawakoni, Tyler, Lindale, Big Sandy, Gladewater. Heck, I can't name every place, but if any of you know where Exit 503 off I-20 is, you are invited.


Finances: Everyone pays for their own breakfasts. Just in case anyone thought that the Democrats were going to provide free breakfasts.

The previously mentioned venues have remained our go-to breakfast places because they have so much seating that we can stay for hours, and not get hated on by the servers since they can't "turn" our tables. I believe Country Pride will be the same way. I had scouted some other breakfast places in Terrell, but they looked like they didn't have much seating.

An additional unique feature of this venue is that the server I talked to used to work in a C-store, was getting robbed, and shot the BG in the stomach with the Border Patrol 1911 in .45 ACP that her grandfather bequeathed to her upon his passing. She didn't kill him, but his life is pretty bad now.

My hope is that this "1st Saturday LTC breakfast" will become an ongoing event for all LTC friends east of Dallas.

I will be attending this first one, and then expect to pass the torch to someone in the aforementioned target audience to keep it going.

Lena and other East Texas LTC friends:

At our Arlington breakfast yesterday, we discussed the new East Texas 1st Saturday breakfast, and there are multiple folks who said they would try to make the Terrell breakfast. Possible other attendees: flightmare, strogg, and C-dub, as well as myself.

We look forward to seeing Lena, and all other East Texas folks.

I hope your meet up is the first of many. I'm a member of the original in Houston and have attended the DFW Arlington meet a couple of times when I visited my daughter in Mansfield. Maybe I'll be able to make one of these sometime. My mom's families on both sides were from your neck of the woods. Most are in the Wieland Cemetery now.

Terrell is about an hour from me. But I am already committed on Oct 5th. I would like to meet some of the people on this forum. Perhaps after deer season I could meet in Terrell.

Lena, et al:

If the restaurant is not too crowded, we can simply take a table, or set of tables, out in the main room.

They do have a breakout room off the main dining room. If we need it, we'll use it.

To ID our group, we will all be open carrying, I will have my white Stetson on, and a light gray Springfield Armory T-shirt .
I will let the manager/server know we are the LTC group, so she can direct you to our area.

Looking forward to it!
