While dining one evening with the Hilliard’s (pictured) at the Ritz Carlton in Aspen, I asked our server whether he recommended the salmon or the chicken. With a holier than thou British accent he replied, “only the Colonel makes good chicken sir.” Not being able to distinguish between the various accents of the Brits, I asked where he was from and when he proudly replied Wales I couldn’t resist telling him that I had a Welsh name. Without missing a beat and through clenched teeth he queried “and just what Welsh name would that be sir.” When I replied Johns, he said … Ahh, the son of King John! This, of course, ended any research I may have had on the subject.
