    Virtually every Saturday morning I eat a hardy breakfast at the Waffle House on Broad Street near Glenside, next door to George's Big & Tall, at about 9:30 or 10:00 A.M. Great opportunity for conversation 'cause I am not put in a private room.

    I would be pleased to see other OCers there - we are welcomed by the staff.

    Perhaps an informal breakfast meet now and then would be an interesting diversion from your present routine. If you already know me, PM me and I'll give you my cell#

    I'd like to Grapeshot but Saturdays are generally gone before they start. Today is Celtic Festival day so I won't be going to the farm either.

    Maybe we can set up another day. I'd like to get something regular started too. Northern Va has a head start on us in that respect.

    Attention: Central Va. - Richmond OCers

    Okay, I admit it was short notice and maybe the Waffle House is not your cup of tea but how about a regular breakfast schedule each Saturday? Whether two or three of us show up or a larger group, it doesn't matter. "Where two or more are gathered" etc. Another great chance to educate, acclimate, bond and eat good food. Quick and easy - eat and run if you like.

    My suggestions other than the Waffle House would be Bob Evans or IHOPs.
    I'd like to set/select a location so that walk-ins could routinely find us.

    'Til further change, I arrive at the Waffle House on West Broad St. just above Glenside 'tween 9 - 9:30 each Sat.

    I'd show up, but unfortunately, I'm in Germany for the next year or so. I know the Waffle House you're talking about, though. Maybe a mile away from the apartment I used to live in. Been there several times.

    OK, I missed breakfast today.

    Waffle House used to be my most favoritest place to eat, because I got to see so many of the wonderful men and women who had been released from the prison system. Alas, no more! They just aren't hiring ex-cons like they used to do.

    Anyhow, I still like Waffle House,no matter ifit's at 9:30 AM or 2:30 AM.

    I'm making plans to meet Grapeshot next Saturday. Hope to see some others there as well.

    stay safe.

    Dale was late today because he was surfing porn on the computer - or so he said. Personally, I think he was trying to catch up on all the gun boards before he showed up.

    It seems our Grapeshot has spent quite some bit of time cultivating his Waffle House associates. He filled me in on more stuff about them and about him, than I think I wanted to know. Then again, I may have to personally check up on a few of the things he told me.

    stay safe.

    Be nice - I had your back all morning. Good food, great conversation.

    A couple of my favorite porn sites are: http://jpfo.org/

    There are others of course but I don't want to put too much pressure on the members here.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Oh well, there's a harp player that will be at Blue Ridge on Thursday. I'll go see her.
