I am a slave to tradition. And the tradition is when you have a vacation coming up, on your last day at the office you skate out early. So who am I to fight tradition???

 

I'm outta here!

Not long now.

 

Don't know why. Have looked forward to CAC all year.

But having a hard time getting up for it.

 

Hope that changes once I get there.

Grizz,

I've heard Jack has to put on a coat to open the fridge.

Freezer!!!!

After getting Frostbit hands and feet, in -18 degrees in Fargo N.D. in 1964 I've been cold ever since!!

Good luck with your loading gate T-bone.

 

I got some flyers designed and printed up for the Cowboy Memorial Chapel fund raising stage today. Figure I'll get them taped up on Wednesday when I get there.

 

Now all I have to do is overcome the family crap that always seem to arise when you are trying to leave on vacation..... :rolleyes::unsure:

Grizz,

Rig up a vest for Dog Dooley and pin the fliers to it. That way everyone is sure to see them. I was gonna suggest pinning them to T-Bone's vest, but he doesnt stand still long enough for anybody to read the flyer.

Are you going to school me on shooting DUELEST ?

 

Hope to see y'all on Wed ,

 

CB

 

 

Heck. I am still trying to learn how myself.

 

Did you look at the list of Duelist coming to CAC???? WOW.

 

Better than EOT has seen in a long time. I will be lucky to make top 10, let alone top 5.

 

 

Would LOVE to shoot it clean. Never shot a big match clean. (only 2 monthlys clean)

That would be a major victory for me. Then just see where I fall.

 

P.S. One of your Arkansas duelist has been whipping up on me the last few time we shot

together. Dewey. He knows as much if not more about duelist than I do.

I'm already there... well.. I was already there but now I'm gone. Then I'll be already there before you're there anyway because I'm gone but I'll be back before y'all leave out to be there.

 

Can y'all tell Tbone is rubbing off? Dang I hope some of that sticks. :o

Only a couple more days til I hit the trail. Guess I ought to start getting stuff packed up more...but I gotta pace myself, don't want to be totally ready and still have a day to wait, gotta have something to fill the time...

 

King, you want me to bring anything from Colorado for ya? I'd suggest snow but it would melt...

Well, got the ammo, cart box, leather and extra leather, vest, etc loaded in crates ready to load in the buckboard.

 

And found a portable easel and white board to keep track of top man and lady on the chapel stage. Hey Bone, you have tables for that stage? I might be able to bring one, maybe, but I figure we'll need several.

 

Still need to lay my hands on a couple big plastic jars or jugs, one for donations, and one for drawing entries. Anyone have a couple they can bring along? Otherwise I guess I could buy a couple jugs of cheese balls and empty them out...

Or I could make an air powered cheese ball canon! It would be easy to mark the hits on target by the orange stains! :D

OK, got the media player loaded on the laptop, copied over last years vids and pics, vids run fine there with no sync problems. Now I'm burning a CD with the vids for T-Bone, then I'll burn one with pics.

 

Watched some of the vids from last year in testing, Miz Grizz watched over my shoulder as Phantom shot stage 5, Don't mess with Texas, and she said "that has got to be sped up" Nope says I, he is just that fast, "that can't be good for the guns" she says, Just fine, guns are tuned to run like that.

Well, Bordertown is in the history books. Looks like a small convoy will be heading out after the awards either tonight or tomorrow. Lady T and I will be heading East on Monday and should arrive Tuesday evening. Got the Crown ready and looking forward to judging the parking lot wars. See everyone in a few days. Safe travels

Hey Rowdy, mark the trail for us, we'll be leaving about the same time but from a bit farther way. I reckon we'll cut your trail some where around Wichita depending on how you go.

Looking at the forecast I guess I'd better throw the portable awning in the buckboard for the chapel stage. If anyone has ropes and stakes I might could use them if'n there's any wind...

It's 3:15 in the afternoon and I'm a headin'fer bed.

 

You heard me right. I've got one more grave shift to pull and then when I get home, I get to wait until about 10:30 in the morn before they have my 5th wheel hitch installed in the new truck. (I love :wub: my new truck ) Then I get to go and retrieve the camper and bring it home to load up with a weeks worth of cowboy clothes (only one change of underwear for the banquet ;) ) and everything else associated with a major match and a major cook-off. (Tenshot and I are on Doc Eels posse and cooking team.) We'll be making some durn good hushpuppies (I hope).

 

Got stuff for the yard sale ( some nice leather[cheap] and a whole lot of cowboy vests ).

 

This will be a break-in trip for both the camper and truck. Not a good sign as something always happens on the first road trip with a new rig. And in this case, it will be two new rigs.

 

Hope to be there late tomorrow night or early Tuesday morning.

 

See y'all soon.
