Good morning all. I wanted to provide a space today for the Dinerzens to get the band back together, so to speak. I miss you firepups, and on most days I don’t see many of the same faces in the Roundup thread. fatster has been kind enough to offer us space in the comments there, but not many have taken that offer.

I wanted to invite you all in, to make this thread today a place to touch base and catch up. I know many have suggested making a new regular hangout, something in Richard’s honor, but I don’t think I’m the guy for the job. Just wanted a one-off kind of thread for us to meet and say hey.

So here it is. Coffee’s on, water’s on for tea, and I’m going to be parked over here in the corner booth. Hope folks show up.
