    Greater Richmond OC Breakfast Sat 11/27 - 9:30 AM Cracker Barrel @ Mayland Drive

    Map for location is here http://www.mapquest.com/?le=t&q=2658...=1290598963140

    West End location, far off the route of shoppers and other crazy persons.

    We discussed setting up a breakfast for Black Friday to serve as cover/an excuse for those that needed such to get out of being at the malls, but then realized it would have to involve being awake, or at least up and about, at an undecently early hour.

    So join us for breakfast and conversation about Turkey Day. Who spilled the cranberry sauce? Which relatrives are now going to be getting a divorce? What new surprize did your college student bring home this time, and can you sell it, get a presecription for it, or otherwise make it go away? And most importantly of all - how many stampedes did you start at the mall?

    stay safe.

    The coffee and food are consistently good at this Cracker Barrel + we can check the pond to see if the geese avoided being the main course two days prior. The conversation is always the priority though and there has been a lot happening.

    See you there.

    It depends on the weather. If we get enough rain to make it muddy, I'll be there.

    We didn't get much rain but I need to work on the Landrover and feel like playing hooky.
    I'll be there!

    I actually won't be there. Haven't been able to sleep a wink all night and now I think I'll finally be able to. Hopefully catch y'all at the next one. If you order a side of crispy bacon for me, you can eat it too!

    Adam did not show up.

    I was there on time but for once everybody else (grape, Peter & Mrs. Peter) got there early so I was waiting for them to show up.

    We had a wonderful breakfast. Curtis, your bacon was extra crispy & delicious.

    The waterfoul were not willing to come up the hill anywhere near that nylon netting someone had laid down - to stop erosion? Hold grass seed? Anyhow, they had ignored a whole lot of breadcrumbs someone had thrown down earlier. We ended up pitching bisquits to them in the water.

    Much conversation was exchanged. Do ask grapeshot about Indian (as in the sub-continent) food.

    stay safe.

    No biggie Adam. A lot of information exchanging, a lot of laughing, some dickering and dealing, some jokes and a lot of double brewed coffee.

    I did discover that the Taurus Tracker in 45ACP had enough headspace for autorims.

    For some reason my thumbs nearly froze on the way which amused everyone a lot. My wife drove a car though.

    I don't get there every weekend so I hope I meet you when you come.

    As usual, no problems and we usually get a few inquiries about the legalities. Today, the only people that stopped, wanted to talk about the GoPro on my helmet

    Breakfast by the pound is my new thing - given enough time.

    Does anybody know whether KennyS is up yet?

    Had a couple waiting for me in their vehicle when I went to leave - they parked beside me having seen the VCDL and GSL magnets. Members of VCDL that did NOT know of the breakfasts and dinners we regularly schedule. Talked for about half an hour - always good to meet fellow members of the choir.

    Damn Doghunters!
    Careful about what you say there. The Chief of police sights his rifle in there and dog hunts. Last year he got so mad at me he huffed off and forgot his rifle rest.
