    Greater Richmond OC Breakfast Sat 6/30 - 9:30 AM @ River City Diner Parham @ I-95

    Here we go again. Another week, another breakfast.

    Rumor has it that it will be cooler in the city with all the asphalt than it will be out where there is greenery and such. Guess all that greenery must be wilting on the vine.

    stay safe.

    Expect that this will be an interesting breakfast - much to review and plan - yes it is going to be a long hot summer

    yeah, sure does. Courtney & Dana laugh at him in there because he'll go in and walk around the bar to fetch his own high chair, he takes the booster seat out, puts it on the floor and then pushes the high chair over to a table. When we're finished he puts it all back, pushes the chair over to the corner, picks up the booster seat and puts that back on top of the high chair.

    That's only because Scouser has not yet bought those Super-Soakers he was going on about a while back.

    Yep! A memory like a steel trap - shut and rusty.

    stay safe.

    Tell me about it peter. Was not a pleasant day to be outside standing on concrete most of the day. Gas stations need to put a big old roof over the fuel drops so I can have some shade while working. What I really don't like is that we HAVE to wear long pants even in this weather

    It made it to 108 today and now the storms are heading this way. Doesn't matter if I'm at the farm or the burbs, the storms are going to hit.
    The good news is, the worst storms are north of Ashland.

    Maybe bring a few "extras", my daughter's family lost their power due to the storm and they're gonna be staying with us 'til it comes back on, so we may all show up!!!

    So, there we were this morning, just arrived and sat down at our usual table when in walks Mr Grapeshot. He said he wanted to see for himself Logan getting his own highchair. Unfortunately he was about 5 minutes too late for that. However, it was a very pleasant surprise to be joined by such a nice person for breakfast. Thanks Dale, I really appreciate you taking the time to travel from your part of town to come and say hello.

    It was my pleasure, believe me.

    I see our future in your quiet son's eyes. He takes everything in and processes it before he makes a decision. You both are doing a great job raising him.

    You do know don't you that Gen. Robt. E. Lee named his horse after me don't you.

    I had every confidence that you'd figure that one out.

    A bit of local lore/history for you:

    We had a friend here in Richmond, Bob Moates, who was perhaps the most famous of all the reenactors who was in very great demand playing his role as General Lee for television and movies. Sadly Bob passed away several years ago. His wife Grace still operates the gun shop bearing his name on Hull Street.

    There is another shop in Keysville Grape and it's really the better of the two.

    Sadly I've never been to that one, but as I remember Bob did most of his gunsmithing there from what I heard. Didn't see him in Richmond much the last year or so.

    Yeah, Bloomberg tore the heart of of him. He stayed out there where it's quieter as much as possible.
