Welp, Waimea and Mrs Waimea will be on the road 6 days from now.

Preacherman will be riding in luxury in the crew part of the cab.

 

REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ONE. Almost like the first.

 

My little buddy Jace the Ace and his whole family will be there. That's always a blast.

 

We'll have stuff for sale that we never had before. 

And something special for my Outlaw pals.

 

Yeeehaaaa!

I’m getting ready to party!!  We’ll be there on Monday.  It is sadly apparent that I won’t be in shape to compete, but I hope that I can maybe shoot a couple of stages.  The doctor has not released me to even walk, but I can hobble around a little and I can help with chores and such.

 

Got a few items for the yard sale, some  guns and some gear!

 

AND NOW FOR AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

 

This will be the last year for MILKBONE to perform!  Between retirements and family considerations, we will be disbanding the band around the end of the year.  It has been a privilege to entertain all of you for all of these years!!  The guys that have done this for so long have looked forward to the next Black Gold year after year!

 

 I will still be coming every year for as long as I am able and hope that I can get back to shooting this fabulous match and other matches around the country!

 

We’ll have a few of our T-shirts left for sale and the gang is STILL looking forward to seeing you all and partying all night!!

As for shooting maybe you can get a stool and shoot from a stationary position.

Just a thought.

 

I am SOOOO GLAD I'll be there to see you do your last Black Gold!!!

 

I suspect tears will be shed.

I’ve considered the stool idea, but I am so out of shape with my hands and shoulders that I don’t want to put anyone at risk.  I’ll poke around and shoot a couple stages, very carefully, and work on getting in shape the rest of the year.

 

Gonna’ be so damned good to just get out and see everybody!!

A big part of me wishes it wasn’t.  The joy of making music is beyond explanation and the kick from the audience is better than booze!

 

Mark and I have been together in this for more than twenty-five years and traveled thousands of miles. We’ve played for crowds in the thousands!!  We’ve played for cowboys and cowgirls. We’ve played for bikers. We’ve played for college kids and weddings.

 

It’s been a long road and really great, for the most part.  We’ve also lost some great friends and musicians along the way and we have fought through some tough times.

 

The good far outweighs any bad, but like I’ve heard it said so many times, all good things come to an end.  When it does, later on , we’ll still all be friends and that’s more than anybody could ask for.

 

Y’all help us make it a party to remember!! Not that it wouldn’t be anyway!  :lol:  B)

You will not believe this but there was actually a fire in the fire place at the Pines last night and it is nice and comfortable this morning. See everyone in a few days.

Weather forecast looking good. Lows in the 60s and highs in mid to upper 80s. Front coming through on Wednesday so hopefully humid won't be too bad. Heading out Wednesday morning. About a two hour drive depending on traffic.

Wait a minute.  Since I am loosely managing the food wars, I need to know: 1) thought dessert had to be PIE with whiskey in.  Need clarification.  Will also be accepting entries into grill & snack/appetizer/aperitif/horsdoovers category.  Would like at least two entries into each category to make it a real war.

Nobody said anything about it having to be a pie as far as I know. Schedule just states that the dessert must feature whiskey

I volunteered for desert war judge and any other but didn't hear back.

So if you're short a judge I am available.

 

I decided not to make my whiskey Pie but put the ingredient to good use anyhow. :lol:

Yes it has to be pie, with whiskey.

 

Iron Maiden said so. It's on Facebook so it had to be so.

 

Just finished a fine shrimp supper.

Facebook ain’t the official Black Gold website!  I went by the printing of the official match schedule on the ponderosa pines website and it doesn’t say anything about no PIE

It was all we could hope for!!  Folks ate copious amounts of fish and smoked pork. I saw brownies and other sweet desserts and beverages were flowing well into the early morning!

 

Good fun! Good food! Good shooting! Good friends!!  It don’t get no better!!

Another one is in the books and it was a blast as always. New friends and old aplenty.

Copperhead Joe and his team sure know how to throw a party.

Blackwater, we're gonna miss Milkbone but we hope to see you next year.
