Day 24: Hard Rock Cafe Package

Hard Rock Cafe Package – February 4, 2011

Day 24 - Hard Rock Cafe Package

Hard Rock Cafe – Seminole, Tampa

Just because General Sarge got a package from Build-A-Bear last week with his dress uniform in it, he now thinks every package that comes is for him.  I tried to tell him this package was addressed to me, but he grabbed it out of my hand and ran to a chair as he wanted to see what was inside the Hard Rock Cafe bag.

Just what did he find….

Day 24 - Hard Rock Cafe Pin

First off, I have to say a special thank you to Linda. She’s also known as SVUgirl on Twitter. Linda lives in Florida and found out I collect Hard Rock Cafe pins. So when she went out for dinner last weekend at her area Hard Rock, she picked me up a pin! As you can see in the picture above, General Sarge figured he would try it out on his uniform. It took a while, but I did finally convince him that it was not an Army issue pin. He did put up a little bit of a fight, but when I threatened to put a call into a TWO star General, he quickly handed the pin over to me.

Now The New Hard Rock Pin Is With My Collection

Hard Rock Cafe Pins

As you can see, the collection is growing. Ben once suggested I just start buying the pins off eBay as he figured that would be faster. But he came around to my line of thinking when I told him it would be too quick and easy. Instead, it’s more fun for me to visit Hard Rock Cafe’s and get my own pins. It’s also great to have wonderful friends who get me pins from all over the place!

Like this Leprechaun one from a Hard Rock Cafe in Dublin…

That one came from Rich, a friend of mine who works with News & Experts in Clearwater, FL. He took a trip to Dublin, and returned with that special pin for me.

So, as you can see, it was another exciting day in the life of General Sarge. Ben always loves to see the new Hard Rock pins when I get them, so it seems very appropriate that General Sarge would be interested too.

  1. Those are some good-lookin’ pins. Love the Dublin one. Neat. I collect small jewelry boxes from all over the world. My step-daughter and her husband travel a lot, and so they are always bringing me back one. Maybe I will blog about it and show pics! General Sarge is getting around!!!

    1. Now that sounds like a cool collection – small jewelry boxes. Yes, I think you should do a blog post about that with pictures. I know I would love to see them! Thanks for leaving a comment here. I appreciate it!
