    Just got off the phone with User - he will be in town Monday (something about wanting to get some papers served) so is going to blow us off for Saturday breakfast.

    My attendance at breakfast is iffy. Depends on what the folks at the VA Hurtspital have to say.

    stay safe.

    Well, it's been a heck of a week...,

    and it's no where near over yet. I might be able to get by for a few, but it's doubtful. Will not be at the Tomato festival, so have fun all, maybe see some of you after the weekend.

    Will you need a ride from the airport? Or are you coming in on Greyhound?

    Seriously, I'm going to try delaying dealing with the VA Hurtspital until after breakfast just to meet you.

    stay safe.

    See you guys there!

    After 2 weeks of heavy fighting I must regretfully say we were unable to take Gettysburg yet again. So you can expect this old rebel to swing by for some R&R.

    15 hearty appetites were satisfied both with food and good conversation.

    It was great seeing the members of the Ol' Phart's Club, the young bucks and our newest attendee, CavTrooperCason who drove up from Tidewater.

    Dale, I "Bruce" have been to several breakfasts with you guys and I drove from Staunton. "Feeling really loved :-P" I think you are thinking about the guy from Washington state who is attending school in the tidewater area. Vitaeus I beleive.

    After everyone but Joe and I were gone, we were at our reserved smoking table (Newspaper stand outside) and a fellow with no nose rode up on a Harley.

    He looked at my bike, then at us, then went inside. Then he came back out and asked if we were security. I said, no, we're just exercising our second amendment rights to keep and bear arms.

    Then he told us how he carried three guns plus had XXXX guns at home and one he had taken off of a Viet Cong somebody, he'd killed

    Then he said he liked big bullets, which of course necessitated me pulling one of my purdy boolits out for show and tell. All he could say was..."that'd hurt".

    It was time to go so we said goodbye to each other and the fellow with no nose, who replied..."Nice bike". So ended another legendary Saturday breakfast.

    Trying to keep the association between screen/user names and real names is not one of my strong suits -sorry guys.

    DoubleTap can hear a name once and never forget it. Don't know how she does it.

    thats funny because I had another idiot approach me at the festival....he had all of my guns plus 20 more and a gold desert eagle and the same gun in the rifle version.....how many horses do I have he said....I said one....oh we have 400000 in Texas.......the police wouldnt allow him to carry his desert eagle because it was armor piercing....I felt this guy getting closer and closer and then actually walk with me one my strong side....he was toothless and meth'd out....strange how guns make stupid people even stupider....good thing he didnt grab my strong side open carried because my.38 was palmed in my left pocket......never boring
