The place was Castle Rock, Colorado, I was sent there to head part of the construction crew building the Castle Pines Golf Club. (This Golf Course is featured in my golf gallery.)
We rolled into Castle Rock about 11:00 o'clock pm, I was in my company pick-up truck and my friend and co worker Charlie was following in his El Camino. We quickly found a cheap hotel room for the night and then proceeded to a little local bar called The 'Baby Doll Lounge.' The bar was near closing and there was only two customers at the bar, a man sitting to our left and a woman sitting around the corner of the bar on our right. We got a couple drinks and made some small talk together until we were about ready for a second one. That's when the lady to our right piped up and told the barmaid to let her buy our second round of drinks, which she did. So I thanked the lady and told the barmaid to give the lady one when she was ready for her next, that's when shit started to happen.
The guy to our left got out of his chair, walked up behind us, pulled out a gun and demanded, "are you good guys or bad guys?" He also stated he didn't like strangers buying the local ladies drinks... Well I proceeded to tell him just what really good guys we were. I explained how we were there to build a golf course and maybe we would see if we could find him a job. This eased the tension a bit but the gun was still in my back. Suddenly out of the blue a small little gal appeared in the doorway with her hands prominently on her hips, she never said a word. The reaction that followed will always amaze me. The guy apologized for giving us a hard time, said, "I gotta go now," put his gun in his pocket and hauled ass out the door with the little gal. We were stunned at what had just happened, I ask the barmaid, I said, "Just what happened here and am I really awake or am I dreaming?" The barmaid nonchalantly said," I saw he was giving you a hard time so I phoned his wife, that was her at the door, I knew she would come here and take him home. He does that every now-and-then."
A first impression indeed, we were there several months building the golf course and frequented the 'Baby Doll Lounge' many times after that but it was never again quite like that first time.
