    Repeating my claim of dibbs on handing out GSL stickers at the bounce house. Gonna send those West End kids home covered in them.

    Also consider saving August 5th for Richmond's National Nigt Out - several locations to hand out stickers

    and

    August 6th for Henrico County - also several locations possible.

    Neither PD has announced the exact locations yet, so keep tuned.

    stay safe.

    Change of venue noted. That does not in any way negate my prior call of dibbs.

    See all y'all there.

    stay safe.

    Except under the overhangs and walkways around the buildings. Expect that some of the event displays will be in the courtyards.

    Have had a call in to the HPD's watch commander for about 45 miniutes now, as nobody else seems to know anything about Community Day let alone if it has been cancelled or moved from the parking lot.

    Why am I not surprised about this?

    See me for Rem Oil wipes. I'm also going to load up a few more golf umbrellas if someone would like to use one.

    stay safe.
