2 dads and 2 sons met up with pots, pans and other assorted cooking implements to feed some folks at Breaking Bread on a Sunday evening.  This is how it all got eaten: -Warmup:  lug all Lab Rat’s crap up the steps.  Let Cliffhanger know that he’s cooking. -THANG:  The Chicken Bog:  Saute some onions, garlic and sausage and warm up the broth.  Combine above with fresh pulled chicken and rice.  Cook for 20 minutes.  Load up bowls and serve with butter bread. Mary:  mint chocolate chip ice cream (plus some other kind, who cares?) plus chocolate chip cookies. NMS: …

For all of those who are interested and available to go with me, I am planning a trip to Wilmington, NC to assist in hurricane Florence recovery and donate time and goods for the weekend of 10/26-10/28.  Here is the basic plan: Friday 10/26: Load up the trucks and leave Hampton Roads after work (approx. 6pm). Drive to my in-laws’ house in Angier, NC (arrive approx. 9:30pm).  They have plenty of room for anyone that wants to come (they can comfortably house about 15 visitors).  We will spend the night there. Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to…

YHC and his 2.0’s took several warm pizzas over to Breaking Bread this evening.  My kids were able to help serve dinner while engaging in conversation with some of the residents.  What a beautiful thing to see as a parent coupled with the invaluable experience for the children.  Labrat, thanks for putting this program together, we love it! -Slurpee

4000 ~ That’s the number of time YHC worried about this event. 0 ~ That’s the number of times God didn’t provide all I, F3 Nation, and Speed for Need (SFN) needed. This was the first time the chariots left the hallowed grounds of the Carolinas and it was imperative that everything go smoothly. Well, as the event drew closer, it was becoming more and more obvious that this was going to be anything but smooth. We will get to that later. First things first: Why did Speed for Need make the voyage to Virginia? Based on all that I…

Gumbo and his 2.1 and 2.2 (Redbird and Snare) and two 2.0 friends filled up the Gumbo-mobile with Chicken Fiesta and headed to The Daily Planet to “break bread” with the folks there.  We dished out some delicious rotisserie chicken, rice, salad and, of course, some fried Yuca.  It was a great time.  The 2.0s all took orders, served plates of food, and engaged in great conversation. Just like the first time I Q’d Breaking Bread, this is a wonderful opportunity for 2nd F and 3rd F and to meet and share some food and fellowship with some great folks who…

Gents – If you have not been to a Breaking Bread, or if you haven’t been back for a while, consider coming with me and my 2.0s this Sunday. I have the Q for the upcoming Breaking Bread this Sunday, 8/26.  It is a great 2nd/3rd F opportunity from 5:00/5:15 until about 7:30 p.m. at The Daily Planet (180 East Belt Boulevard, Richmond, VA 23234).  We will be preparing/bringing and serving dinner to patients recovering from illness or injury or surgery in the Medical Respite Program.  I’m looking for a couple volunteers to attend with me and help out. Not sure…

Disclaimer: This backblast is not meant to be a complete recount of this past weekends festivities, only YHC’s recollection of the highlights. PAX, please add your memories to the comment section.

Naked Man Moleskin (NMM) Thursday: Gunner showing up with converter block with enough USB ports to charge a small army’s portable devices. Naming of our two Friendly New Vehicles (FNVs).

The following showed up for Breaking Bread this evening:  Kubota (and his 2.0 Husky), Mr. Roper (and his 2.0 Charlie), and YHC (2 out of 3 of my 2.0’s = Ellie and Charlie). We had the honor of serving some bbq and fixings to a group of Richmond’s less fortunate this evening, what a great experience.  YHC enjoys exposing his 2.0’s to these experiences as often as possible…. Needless to say, YHC’s daughter (Ellie, 7 years old) and son (Charlie, 5 years old) had lots of questions about the wonderful folks we were able to serve, what a great learning experience for them.  It was fun…

The team is set. Training almost complete. Here are the logistics. If you have any questions, please reach out to either Space Monkey, Screen Door, or YHC (Dreamliner). Note: If you did not sign up and starting to feel like you are missing out, let us know soon. We can probably make some magic happen. Logistics: Thursday, April 19 1200: Bachelor Pad and YHC retrieve 15 PAX van from Enterprise (3004 W. Mercury Blvd., Hampton, VA). ONLY Bachelor Pad and YHC. 1700-1730: Arrive at Bachelor Pad’s home and pack van. 100 Pear Avenue, Hampton, VA. 1800: Depart for rental house.…

YHC along with Oyster and Spike visited the Medical Respite this evening and had a bit of fellowship and faith with some of the less fortunate among us in RVA.  There were eight wonderful people there that we blessed and fed a meal of BBQ (beef and pork), coleslaw, baked beans, rolls, dessert and beverages.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and we had great conversations with them.  YHC’s 2.0 asked him if he could go help, but due to age restrictions, he could not.  I’m just glad that my 5 year old son knew that I was going to help feed some…
