Ambush 2011

Recommended Posts

1,000 $20 gold pieces. That's highway robbery. I say these Union Midgets is getting out of control. It's time to break this union. With the economy like it is, I recon we can truck in some Scab midgets for the weekend. Maybe we could go by the local elementary school and hirer some small 1st graders. The posibilites are endless.

Tomahawk throwing? Marbles, or if we got enough, "Simon Says"? :) MT

I've got an original Mohawk tomahawk,though the handles been replaced three times, I've only put a new head on it twice.

We are not going to change our plans for a midget tossin'. Union or no union. Cement feet or no cement feet. I will just bring "the family" with me. As BLB said, we are not succumbing to pressure from the "little" unions. You either put up or shut up. Now, How far do you think you can toss a 55 lb. midget? How much are you willing to bet that he/she won't hit the rim. That's a foul you know. (and it hurts too)

 

LSC has a secret weapon for getting the little rascal in the pool and after he gets the first one in and we win all the money I am sure there are going to be some mad folks. In this old world you have to be just a little smarter than the average bear or wind up with your bells in bear doo-doo.(I said that) :lol: :lol:

I just found out that we are going to have a celebrity on our posse.

Hint: He was the only one who survived the ambush.

According to the 1981 movie, it would.

Don't know about the 1981 movie, but I thought I remembered the surviving Ranger's name as John Reid.

 

At any rate, I'm referring to the one the only, Silver riding, black mask wearing, silver bullet toting, Tonto partnering, William Tell Overturing masked man - The Lone Ranger!!!!

OK---I did not remember his real name. Bama you win the contest. That Masked Man (TLR) is going to be on our posse and will dress the part.

Now for another surprise. The REAL Little Bertha has made a visit at my house and has her hair up and is ready for the water. She says that BW doesn't have the strength to throw her that far and says he probably throws like a girl anyway. Here she is.

In the radio and TV series, he's only identified as Ranger Dan Reid's brother. In the 1981 movie, "The Legend of the Lone Ranger", he's identified as John Reid.

It's easy to tell the weather in Alabama. Whatever it's doing in Jawja today, it did in Alabama yesterday.

 

Hope that helps........ :)

I think I would be more concerned about how I was going to hold onto Little Bertha when I toss her.

Lawman Mark is correct in this. The official use of his name John Reid is never used in either the TV, radio or comics, newspaper or comic books. He is never named as John Reid till the 1981 movie. Though, in Gold Keys comic book on the re-telling of the Legend, he is instead named incorrectly as Dan Reid, same as in Fran Strikers obituary as writer of the series Lone Ranger is named Dan Reid. In the 60s, a book Golden Age of Radion refers to him as John Reid,were they got this from is unknown, this is were the writers of the 81 movie get, and use the name John Reid for the first time, and is now part of the Legend. Also item of interest, Lone Rangers nephew is named Dan Reid, he is the father of Britt Reid, the Green Hornet.

As bad as some people may make the 81 film of the Lone Ranger, the first half is actually very good, especially in re-telling a part of the Legend many people never knew, That the Lone Ranger and Tonto knew each others as childhood blood brothers. Later when Tonto saves his life after the massacre of the Rangers, he recognizes his friend and saves him as John Reid had saved him when they were children.

I was lucky in watching some of the filming, and yes Klinton Spillsbury was a poor choice, his ego, and drinking on the set was bad. Though he looked good in the costume and adept at handling the firearms. The movie had so many re-writes, plus 2 directors with different visions. But again the first hour is excellent. MT

Hey MT.....was Bertha in the movie too? I was thinking she may have had a "minor" part....perhaps a "small" roll. If she was in the movie that'd mean that now you have another union to deal with....SAG (Screen Actor's Guild). I'm athinkin old BLB mighten hafta hire out as a union negotiator or at least make Bertha "an offer she can't refuse" so's not ta cause too much ruckus about all this union stuff.

 

Of course BLB would be the right man for the job. I hear tell he's been know to make offers to midgets before :)

HTF,

Your job will be to come over to my place and keep an eye on Little Bertha and see that she doesn't get kidnapped. I got hold of a rumor that someone might steal her and fit her with a harness so that they can hold onto her and throw her farther than anyone else. It's your job to see that it doesn't happen. I just can't see you pulling out any tubes doing that unless you have to tackle some big ole' boy. Best you handle that some other way. Git ma drift? :rolleyes:

Attention all units BOLO

 

There's a short pants wearing, midget rasseling, margarita drinking, stove up, cantankerous, HOMBRE heading this way on Tuesday. He is guilty of something or another so arrest and hold until further notice. He thinks he is a Competition Cowboy Shooter........don't beleive him he can't see that good. He is hard of hearing also so shout at him that way he will hear ya. I believe he may be travelling with an accomplice of some sort in a motor home. He will say he is from Jawja but is actually from New York City born and raised at least that is what she says. He may be travelling with family also from New York City............at one time he may have been dangerous but time took care of it................ I hear in some circles he may be known as Peaches. That's Jawja Peaches he says. Anyway he is not to be trusted after crossing the state line. Some say he is going to rob the bank at Cavern Cove. He is a sporting man so gambling houses are the first place to look. If seen approach very fast cause he is slow. He maybe travelling with a midget known as Bertha. :lol::lol::lol:

I was drunk and there's no video footage of the event so it didn't happen.

 

Not guilty, Jury trial.
