    Slightly inside joke. Didn't always post anything and another asked if was a secret - so we announce the hidden location now.

    Without bothering to check, I's hazzard to say it is address #2. The location is on Midlothian Turnpike, just 1+ mile west of the intersection with Chippenham Parkway. For those of you who do not use GPS navigational devices, look for the State Police Headquarters - the IHOP is immediately west of there.

    You must forgive Grapeshot when he posts the location of secret meeting places - he remains convinced that it really ought to remain secret so he screws up the street number and/or the street name.

    For anyone thinking of attending - we get space in the smoking section because 1) at least half of the regular attendees smoke, 2) there are moveable tables there as opposed to fixed booths, and 3) walking in and out (as well as any trips to the "little person of appropriate gender" room or for coffee refills if our waitress is busy elsewhere)alllows those so inclined (Grapeshot, you know who I'm talking about) totake the long route so everybody can see whatthey are wearing that morning. The rest of us people-watch for the or or :Xor :?or :shockr or or :what:reactions. Maybe one day we will get a :celebratereaction.

    stay safe.

    Infidel and son&heir showed up - two waffles forthe youngstertoday instead of French Toast. Be sure to ask "Fastdraw" how his new Serpa holster worked at the Nat. Guard training - and remember You can sleep well at night because they are guarding us (old billboard from the 70's for trivia buffs).

    The Lady Friend was convinced to come and dine with us, also. May not do that again, as she & Grapeshot took turns trying to dis me.

    Once the new kid waiter got into gear the coffee pot was kept full and he managed to get all the orders right - including reminding Grapeshot that he only got 2 pancakes with his order while others were entitled (per the menu) to 3. The Lady Friend graciously exchanged with him to stop the tears from flowing down his cheeks.

    We got quite a few states and :what:looks, but either my hearing aids were turneed off or nobody said anything loud enough for me to pick up on it. "Course, that does not mean much, as I cannot hear anything quieter than a train horn even with the hearing aids. All I do is look wise and nod my head, and every once in a while say "Yes, dear."

    Next OC breakfast with Grape & skid is tentatively 9/27. Location TBA - anybody want to suggest a place feel free to say so - as long as it has coffee.

    stay safe.

    Need to hurry up and say this while Skid is taking a breath 'cause he never sees me with my hand raised.

    Had a great time and thoroughly had my tanks filled. Never had a server before that did not know what "sunny side up" meant though. Infidel's son sure did pack the waffles away. The patience of Skid's lady friend is admired - both with kids and him. Don't worry, next time there will be crayons available for everyone.

    I tried to say nice things about you Skid. I really was trying.

    Next Sat. same time, different station?
