I'm assuming you mean the 21st (of May), since the 20th is a Friday.

My wife and I will be there.

I would think that Sea Dog and Workin', along with their significant others (or not) might make appearances.

I'm a qualified MAYBE; it depends on whether or not my travel schedule changes again. It's changed three times in the last week.

I should be back from McKinney Tx. May 18 and don't have to fly back out to Dallas until May 22. Assuming I'm in town, I will try to join you.

Yes, Workin's soon-to-be significant other is interviewing for a supervisor position at Whores 'R' Us. And people say there's no work!
:lol:

I believe I'll be attending, but I'll have an answer on or before Wednesday. That would make put me in the "definitely interested and probably" category. I'll reply in this thread ASAP.

EDIT:

I'm in, gentlemen. Let me know where, when, and how. Consider me RSVP'd!
And may I say, from a moral point of view, I think there can be no justification for shoving snack cakes up your action.

Get this: I was just told today that I'm supposed to TAD in San Diego from the 16th-22nd of May. I might be able to make it...

Don't know the schedule yet/what exactly it is that I'm doing, but I'll at least be in the area. If someone can hook me up with some contact info, it might be short notice, but I'll call if I'm available/when I have more info on the schedule.

Hell, if Jim wasn't moving in, we would have loved to have you hang at our place since we've been cleaning out the guest room. :D :D

Of course, you would have needed to tolerate a couple of cats and the rest of our mess, but I bet you would have enjoyed the spa (prescription for my wife's continuing back problems)! Unfortunately, we're not even CLOSE to the center of the night life in San Diego.

In any case, you need to get a-hold of us locals so we can go out to lunch or something! I see you've already been sent info regarding our BBQ, so we hope you show up for some tasty food and good company!!

Update:

The work schedule and scope has changed again. :evil: 8-) The update has postponed my travel to the Tx. sites for 3-4 weeks. Unless they throw ANOTHER curveball, I should be working out of my home facility up to then. The odds of me joining you has increased to 60/40.

Assuming Uncle Sam doesn't make me work that day I should be arriving along with JAG. Not sure on the better half yet.
JAG: So why do you need armor piercing ammo?

JAG: For when they hide behind engine blocks?

Has anyone else noticed that there is a Gunshow in Del Mar that same weekend. Would it be too stressful logistically to hit the gunshow in the morning then BBQ/potuck in the afternoon?

I would like to do that, but... Mrs. Rumpshot would probably put up with it, grudgingly. The Boy Scouts are having a big shooting (black powder) event at Camp Mataguay (50-60 miles northeast of downtown San Diego) that I would like to visit and touch base briefly. There is a rodeo in Ramona that weekend.

Will be playing the vacation by ear the way it is. May do one of the above, may not.

I am already working to support the Boy Scouts as NMLRA Field Rep from afar.

BE, speaking of the SD Meet-Up, Albertsons still has their meat counter TWO-FOR-ONE offer going for their seasoned 1/4 chicken pieces and drumsticks. Unfortunately, they're no longer on sale for $1.99 a-pound (making it $.995 a-pound at two-for-one prices) - and it's actually a pretty good flavor.

Just recently, Henry's Market had filet mignon on sale at a savings of $6 per pound.

Do you have a freezer I can dump some items (I get a damn-good prices) if I pick them up for the meet?

Today the official curveball has been thrown. The Tx. trip has been postponed due to more pressing matters locally which means I will be in area for the next two-three weeks. That means I can join you next weekend. Got room for one more?

Plan is to start the coals at 5. Feel free to show up then. Earlier than that, the fellowship is welcome but I might have you digging ditches or footings. :-)

Yeah, geographic bachelors just get yerself here, we'll have enough to cover. We pretty regularly have larger groups than this. This shouldn't be a stress.

Of course, any salads, chips/dips or such would be welcome. PM me with any offers and we'll adjust our plan.
I'm planning to put enough chicken and brat's for 10 guests plus whoever's around from my brood.

PM me as needed for directions "Help I must have missed your place and am in Tecate" backup contact info.


Meantime I'm cooking for 15 men at church tomorrow morning and need to make a Costco run... Ciao for now

Lookin' forward to it!! I might have more books for you, but have to see which we want to sell, and which we want to keep.

I hope the magazines went well, once they got them all sorted out.

If you have one type of book which sells better than others, please let me know so I can separate them out from the rest of the groups for easy identification.

Been communicating with several of the folks via e-mail.

Still on for 1700hrs. Grill will be available for any who are bringing dead flesh to roast but my wife and I have made a late change of plans and there will be a sooper-seekrit-full_supper-substitution for the primary meal. It will either delight all ya'll or give you the runs.
(Tom, feel free to continue with the green salad).

Be there or be square.

Well, there was a good turn-out. We got to put several faces with names and aliases/handles/nicknames. Unfortunately, I'm TERRIBLE with names, and I get them mixed up with other faces - so rather than make a fool of myself and misidentify people, I'll leave that to someone else. Besides, I'll wait for approval from those involved before posting their faces and names/handles online. Not everyone wants their identity identified online, and not everyone has a FaceBook page (or engages in "social networking" - particularly if they have a clearance).

Rumpshot's Rattlesnake Venom was passed around, and one of the unsuspecting daughters of BlackEagle603's decided to give it a try even though she didn't really know what was in it. When I was looking at Rumpshot's bottle inside the house, she remarked that it was "pretty spicy!!" :lol: :lol: :lol: Now that was one BRAVE face to say it was only "pretty spicy!!"

I'll let Rumpshot tell you what was in it, but it made a few of those who partook break out in a little sweat (yes, I saw it on your forehead ;) ).

Here's the bottle (workinwifdakids is in the background):
IMG_8671_RattlesnakeVenom_x1000.jpg


Grandma Kathy's cherry sippin' juice was pretty tasty too.

BE knows how to throw a backyard cookout. We woulda' been there sooner except we had to wait for the sun to go down a little bit more since my wife is VERY sensitive to light (particularly direct sunlight). Too much sunlight can make her violently ill. I tried to get her to wear one of my NOR t-shirts, but they were too tight across the chest (and she's very modest).

I neglected to get any photos of the toys BE passed around, including a top break-open .32, a sweet .22LR S&W revolver (with a DAMN HEAVY trigger pull), and a very nice Model 70 in .300 Win Mag (I think I would have preferred a heavier barrel and a MUCH lighter trigger).

The food was GREAT and was chowed down with enthusiasm, as was the oatmeal cake dessert. BE and his wife were GREAT hosts, and their home was a great location for such a gathering. Flintlock Tom and his lovely wife were there, BE and his great wife were there (obviously, as were a couple of their gun-enthusiast kids, but they weren't even close to being kids except related to the dinosaurs in attendance). But rather than leave someone out or misidentify them, I'll leave the roll-call to someone else (yes, mousegun and workin' were there, and it was GREAT to see how well everyone was doing, and workin' was getting a chance to relax and be amongst people who cared about the crap he's going through even though we didn't discuss it. We were there, and we support him, and that's what mattered).

And if you ever decide to sneak up to BE's house, his ferocious dog will simply lick you to shreds!! :lol: :lol: ;) ;)

IMG_8682_Cropped_x1000.jpg


Personally, I'd LOVE to do this again, and would also love to bring some other dead animal portions to throw on the grill to share (maybe have Termite send us some 'gator with instructions on how to cook it), or make up a HUGE salad and throw in some avocado, radishes, green onions, red onions, sunflower seeds, raisins, red-leaf lettuce, green-leaf lettuce, romaine, iceberg lettuce, etc., etc. (this is not to diminish the awesome salad that was served - it was wonderful and I got seconds), it's just that WE LOVE to cook, but HATE cleaning up afterwards.

Next time I'm sure we can get there sooner, especially if we might be doing some of the cooking. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Glad you made it Mike -- and everyone else too.

Yeah, daughter #1 went straight to the Rattlesnake piss venom. I dare say she got everything she deserved for her curiousity. 8-) /sinner/ :lol:

I have renewed motivation to finish working that patio shade plan out. The setting sun comes through that partition wall with a vengeance. It doesn't need a cover so much as it needs a more complete wall/barrier on that west end. Bamboo and some lath are going to fix that up shortly. That'll give enough shade to relocate my epiphylum in the open and got in search of a staghorn fern.

I've been working projects off the list progressively from the back part of the yard. The patio shade and water fall are next on the list. Hopefully we'll have a more comfortable situation for the late day sun shortly -- and we'll do it all over again.

Though showing up near sunset Mike may have looked a wee bit purple and sparkly... Hmmm, could be a collaborator

Don't you like the pretty stars and sweeping lines in the label border. Makes you feel all warm and cozy doesn't it. Take a sip/slurp/glug and you WILL feel all warm and cozy from the tip of your tongue to the ..... (end of the digestive tract)! You may even relive the pleasure of the first sip sometime after the lights have gone out for the evening.... :mrgreen:

Recipe to be posted later tonight or in the morning.
