Had wonderful OC breakfast at Shoney's on West Broad Street.

Sidestreet was there and brought a friend - his Sunday school teacher, the same man who perfected the Brunswick stew that JC makes.

Completed my outside OC day yesterday with stops at Walmart and Lowe's both on Sheila Lane, and Food Lion on Meadowdale.

Was a good day.

Breakfast was waiting for me as I approached the counter at Burger King near Providence Rd.

Two young lads sitting in a booth were especially interested in my 1911, not afraid.

Left there and OCd for my haircut at Nu Tribe barber shop near by - haircut AND shave $12.00
The owner works the first chair - give him a try, you won't regret it.

OCd at usual Burger King on Midlothian near Providence Rd.

Had lunch at Arby's opposite old Manchester MS on Hull St. - good conversation there with the staff/managers.

Leaving Arby's and waiting to turn onto Hull St., I saw a lady driving a 2001 Sport Ram almost as nice as mine. I honked and give her a big thumbs up - she grinned from ear to ear.

Ate at DoubleTap's mother's house yesterday - had old world Lebanese food.

Today I started my outside OD day at the Burger King on Midlothian near Providence. They do the sausage biscuits right.

Traffic was backed up for miles going towards Chippenham - bad accident next to Capt D's.

Went to Food Lion on Meadowbrook for sodas and a can of BBQ Stax chips - can't eat just one.

From there I did my civic duty at Walgreen's where I removed illegal signs from the right-of-way.
Had great interaction with a lady who observed what I was doing and commented that she wished more people would do that, just look at what the mattress stores do on Broad St.

Headed for our OC dinner next.

Began my OC day at the same Burger King.

Next to Wal-Mart on Hopkins Rd to resolve ordering issue with online order. They couldn't help because they do not have a computer - said only the Super Centers do.
Proceeded to the closest Super center on Shelia Rd where (wait for it) they said they cannot help with online orders because they have no computer. :banghead:

I will solve the problem and order from another vendor.

OCd first thing at Burger King near Providence Rd.

Made a special trip to Dick's Sporting Goods in Fashion Park Shopping Center. While they did not have what I'm seeking, I was shocked that they did NOT object to the OCd 1911 on my hip. Here I was all primed to point out that they have banned guns, destroyed some, and now are going out of business in central Virginia - you can't color me but so surprised that they have failed in this locale.

Please note that they are one of the original Dicks.

Really nice OC breakfast at Shoney's this morning.

DoubleTap and I enjoyed the Pickle Barrel so much (site of last OC dinner) that we have a "date" to go there by ourselves tonight for some personal quality time. Yes we were both OCing - no screaming panic, but numerous acknowledgements.

Really do like this establishment - good food, generous portions, efficient service too.

The only negative is a high level of noise in the far left room - nothing to defuse or absorb the sound.

Solution - don't sit on that side.

Been under the weather a bit (retaining too mush fluid), but back with a vengeance.

Tried to get breakfast yesterday at the Burger King just before Providence Rd. Some minutes before the 10:30 am cut off, they had already dumped all the biscuits so went to Hardee's where they fixed biscuits-n-gray to my liking.

Then OCd at Kroger on Midlothian near Chippenham for essentials and gas.

Had breakfast at home this morning.

Have afternoon appt with primary care doctor, where carry is not allowed as property is owned by Bon Secours.

They seem to prefer that all of their fish be tightly packed in one barrel.

Made breakfast at home again - sweet summer sausage links - BLAY !

They tasted like sawdust. The garbage disposal found it most satisfying though.

OCd at Wal-Mart on Hopkins Rd where i scored some wanted items at excellent prices.

Will start outside OC day at Burger King near Providence Rd.
No power for miles both ways on Midlothian.

Went to Burger King on Jeff Davis near Cogbill. They were pleased to see me back.

Took home 2 Oreo milk shakes. Ate one, put the other in freezer for later.
