Terrell Denny's and US Marines Toys for Tots

This is Butterfly, our usual server at the Terrell Denny's restaurant. We hit Denny's maybe 3 weekends a month. I only have a glass of water and a slice of tomato, cause I'm on a diet ;-) She is always on top of her game, but everyone who works there is nice.

This year Denny's has teamed up with the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots. You can donate $1 for a Denny's Cares $1 Holiday Tag. You can write your name on the tag and display it on the holiday tree they have in the store. The money raised will be given to the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots to purchase and distribute toys for needy and disadvantaged children in our area. For every dollar donated you get a coupon for $1 off your next Denny's visit. You can always give more than $1.

We donated $3 and will get $1 off our next 3 visits. You can donate up until December 10th. If your in the area drive over to Denny's have a Grand Slam and make a donation to Toys for Tots.

Congratulations to the Kaufman Lions. They have advanced to the third round of the football playoffs. They next take on New Boston 6:30 Friday night at Royce City.

What a good thing Denny's is doing. Hello to Butterfly--I usually order the two egg breakfast:
2 eggs over easy
wheat toast well toasted
hash browns
no meat.
It's pretty good and even makes a good dinner. MB

So how did butterfly get her nick-name? I am guessing it is because she flutters from table to table but there may be a better story behind the name than that!

I just love this time of year. It really brings the generosity out in people. This past weekend here in Mac-Town we gave away, yes gave away, clothes, furniture, toys and other items to about 3500 families in the community.
