This morning I OCd ate Burger King on Midlothian near Providence.

Then to Kroger to get gas for the Ram. Next to Home Depot on Jeff Davis for a new computer mouse.

Stopped at a car lot near What-A-Burger to look at a nicely restored '70 Chevrolet short bed pickup truck.

Home now (still OCing) and will catch up on my day job.

I will be sure to contact you prior to my next excursion to your neck of the woods, for long over due get together. :)
i will look forward to it.

Went to Home Depot on Forest Hill where i bought a new cordless mouse. Was returning a defective one. The manager gave me a healthy discount on an upgraded mouse - no funds needed and even a small credit on my card.

Electric radiator fan quit. OC'd at One Stop Auto Repair on Midlothian and at main NAPA warehouse near Johnston Willis Hospital getting parts.

You just amaze me, you accomplished all this without your ankle bracelet setting off any alarms.

Yesterday had an OC breakfast at Shoney's wit DoubleTap on West Broad St with some pleasant interaction.

This morning I started my OC day at Golden Corral on Gaskins. Also went to several Kroger's and Walmart's looking for an elusive product. Before heading home I went by Capt D's on Midlothian. Never did hear any screams or see anyone trampled.

Just another pleasant day in the neighborhood.

Finished up my outside the home day very close to where I started it - just around the corner from BK at Golden Corral on Providence Rd.

They must have been mobbed earlier before I got there. The place was trashed.

Not a shadow of banana in the banana pudding either.,,:(

Outside OC day began at Burger King on Midlothian near Providence Rd.

From there proceeded to Lowe's on Forest Hill, then to Food Lion on Meadowdale at Hopkins for essentials.

Bought some JackLink's A.M. Breakfast Bacon. I love crispy bacon, but that stuff is nasty.

Breakfast at usual Burger King.

OCd at Kroger on Midlothian near Chippenham and at Walmart on Hopkins. At the latter had good conversation that began with, "Is that a .45?"
