Lunch at the Gristmill with "Toby Keith" and Steve

Steve and I were out doing a little sightseeing in New Braunfels, TX and we decided to head over to the Grist Mill restaurant in Gruene.  We were enjoying ourselfs and lunch was great when we couldn't help but noticing one of the young waitresses spending quite a bit of extra time with one of the other parties.  A closer look and we realized that it was Toby Keith.  You just never know who you will run into.  He might have been playing at Gruene Hall over the weekend. 

Steve mentioned that he was very popular with the military because he has made numerous trips overseas to entertain the troops.  Steve saw him on his tour in Khandar.  He decided to go thank him for coming to Khandahar, Afghanistan to put on a concert for the troops there.  He walked up to him and apologized for interupting his lunch but said "I was at Khandahar in 2010 when you did your USO tour and I just wanted to thank you and tell you how much we all appreciated it. 



Toby said, "Thank-you but I'm not him. I'm a look-a-like."  He then googled an article and showed me on his smart phone. I think he was actually embarrassed and I know I was a little disappointed but then it's not every day that you see any kind of a celebrity.
