85 tomorrow, yes it’s my husband’s birthday.

So the restaurants have been sending him coupons for a free meal.  There are only so many you can accept.

Last week it was a free Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘n’ Fruity from iHOP.  With Len’s diabetes he couldn’t eat that, so he had an omelette, and I ate one third of it, and brought the rest home.  Just too many carbs, and sugar.

Today it was Golden Corrall, so we went after his electro-cardiologist’s visit.  If you don’t know it is an ‘all you can eat buffet’.  We haven’t been to one in several years.

I was bad, had a little breakfast, soup, ham from the carvery and the chocolate fountain.  I did dip with strawberries if that counts.

Tomorrow it will be Dennys, and Len gets the Grand Slam, so I can choose a lighter meal.  Saturday when I drive down to Treasure Island, we always stop at Sonny’s B.B.Q., so he will get his for free.

These are a few of the offers we chose to use, but the list is endless.  Most give you 2 weeks to use the coupons, but a couple insist you go on your birthday, and take your driver’s license with you.

I know that a pub chain do this in England, but do other countries too?


  1. First of all Happy Birthday for your husband. I think it’s nice that there is such a possibility. Here in Germany I have not heard of such a gift campaign.

    Have a nice time together.

    best regards

  2. Hi! It’s my birthday today and my insurance company sent me a voucher for a free coffee and muffin in a pop chain place. This is a first for me here in Ireland. Sounds like you guys are getting a better deal on your side of the pond!
