    OC on Black Friday a chapter in the Ferry Tale

    Grapeshot was working today and OCing as usual. I wasn't carrying anything but 5 cameras.

    I'd like to say that the Jamestown/Scotland neck has new Security and they didn't even blink at his Purdy gun.

    Yes, I cut their heads off in this video frame grab because I'm not ready to let the cat ot of the bag yet.

    you were down that way today? .. I was at Jamestown and the Yorktown Victory Center this afternoon (you know how it goes, sometimes you leave things locked in glove boxes because of who you're with, etc). Logan had a great time exploring the ships in Jamestown, and didn't even flinch when they fired the cannon in Yorktown at the artillary demonstration.

    We stayed on the other side of the river Scouser/

    Kind of an uneventful day with major consequences.
    I haven't felt well this week but was about to pass out when we got back.
    Grapeshot kept on plugging away and got everything done.

    My other side is my "good side" Peter.

    That was a special stop detour to make sure that the message of thanks was delivered.

    It was obvious that the new security company personnel at the ferry had no concerns about my 1911. There were several cars parked in line, waiting for the ride across the mighty James, that were all abuzz as we walked past though. Welcome to Virginia folks - home of freedom.

    So which security company got the contract?

    Don't know. I was concentrating on locating one person and didn't bother to ask.

    We were doing more than just seeing the sights.

    Was this the same one person that was the recipient of a famous finger pointing?

    Is that picture capturing the posting of a judicial notice?

    More on this topic next week, I think. Including the general availability of certain public documents.

    For now, I would point out that the door in the picture is that of Mrs. Mable Lee Wyche, mother of the "captain" of the security guards on duty at the ferry on Oct. 29, 2010. One of three addresses we got during the criminal proceedings for his residence.

    I don't think it would be premature to show a picture of The Honorable Sheriff Clayton, Peter. I loved the look on his face.

    By the way, we could use some logistical support from someone who lives in Norfolk. Send me an email if you can assist to

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion.

    Just a quick note about responsibility.
    All photo's, Video's, Screen Grabs, audio or other images, are the responsibility of Old Virginia Media Productions LLC. Any mention of Dan Hawes is done as part of a larger news/documentary production, and can not be considered advertisement on his part.

    Loved the comment that the Sheriff made just before we left: "Don't you guys ever take a day off?" No one gave him an answer to that as it was obviously rhetorical frustation on his part, but I was thinking, "Nope, not where righting a wrong and where freedom and rights are concerned. Beside which, it was such a nice day for a sight seeing drive.

    The gentleman in the red shirt is Mr. Dan Hawes.

    That's Dan Hawes. Both he and Skidmark have been likened to S. Claus.

    As to me, don't let the rumpled fenders and paint job fool you. All of the drive components run/work great

    I find my present appearance to be advantageous, though I'd gladly revert to past fighting form, in that people tend to underestimate what they think they see

    Peter Nap is seldom seen in pictures - he is almost always behind the camera. Imagine Grizzly Adams with an impish grin and a mean streak.

    Wow. Real metal awnings. (wistful sigh)
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Those aren't good representative pictures of either Grapeshot or Dan. That was taken with an extreme wide angle lens and it made Dan look heavier than he is. For lack of a better word, Dan is stately looking.

    Grapeshot doesn't look anything like that. He looks like he's made up of rawhide and hickory splits with a big grin.

    Might as well embarrass myself while I'm at it:

    All joking side, peter nap & Grapeshot are 2 of the nicest people I've had the pleasure to meet in person and go a long way towards proving true the quote that "an armed society is a polite society" ('Beyond This Horizon' by Robert A. Heinlein)

    Sometimes those days just turn out not quite as pretty as you thought they were going to be. I'm glad things worked out so well for y'all.
