Next.....

..... you guys aren't going to believe this, but I have absolutely ZERO photos from this weekend's blogmeet..... (except for the one that Teresa sent me....) ..... bad, BAD host!..... how the hell can I have a blogmeet and completely forget to take photos!?....

.... I do have a video, though..... a surreal, spiraling, tangly sort of vodka-induced bongo/back-of-a-guitar showdown between Jimbo and John Cox...... good thing that Zonker gave me a pith helmet.... it went perfectly with the African beats that those whiteboys were churning out in my living room......

... but anyway, sorry about everyone's hotel catching fire..... hey, it wasn't MY laundry, but still..... I should have been out there with a bucket and a hose trying to keep all of y'all safe instead of snoring peacefully in my bed three miles away!.... although, Dax managed to keep a fire all night long in my back yard without the slightest singe....... so, perhaps I should just provide tents for everyone next year!....

.... so thank you all for coming to visit.... it was wonderful having you guys and gals here......

so, Jimbo & The Bodyguard
Denny
Zonker
Bou, Morrigan, & Stephanie
Jerry
Dax
Oddy
Richmond
Teresa
Erica
Johnny-Oh & Jennifer
Tommy
John Cox
Elisson & SWMBO
Redneck
Rick & Georgia

... and Confabulator, Yabu, & T1G for the phone calls!.... all of you rock..... oh, and those stains came out of the carpet just FINE!......

.... I'm off to stuff some bell peppers with my Secret Formula bolognaise and bake'em for dinner........ but, my goodness..... next October can't get here quickly enough, folks...... and yes.... according to The Missus, there will be another meet-up here next year..... so mark your calendars and start stockpiling ammunition........ and firewood..... and vodka......

And thank YOU for the fine hosting. And well hell - what's a little itty bitty hotel fire amongst friends... Really...

And for the record I was on the *second* floor - not the third. I sooooooo didn't do it. :) Promise.

Thank you and the Mrs for hosting and truly accommodating for a pregger one. It was really appreciated.

As I told you on the phone, I should have gone to Houston and had El Captian drive us there as I am unable to do so...

It was good talking with you as always...

Amazing. You host an amazing weekend-long party and then you thank us for showing up and having a good time.

Can't wait until next year!

Well, I have more pics - if I can find the time to get to them and send them out to you. (and if your computer doesn't go wonky and make them look strange ;-) )

Fire, schmire... we now have a story to tell for years to come. LOL.

Eric,
It's just too far a drive for me. I'm just gonna have to move to Tennessee.

Thanks again!

Springtime, dude. Oktoberfest in Helen and the SWG Spring Festival. Having them two weeks apart makes it hard for a lot of people.

When Obama is elected I hope he will spread the airline tickets around and some extra foldin money so I can be there with you partaking of fun in TennisShee and at the US taxpayer's expense! God breast Obama's America!

Great Reader, KIM Jong IL

Thank you again, kind sir. Thank you for the hospitality, for taking care of my kid sister and making sure all was well for her and my unborn niece/nephew, for the guns and shooting, for the laughs, for the warmth of your home.

As always, one of the highlights of my year. I'm good for ziti next year too!

And Zonker... why don't they move Helen until Spring? Tennessee is so wonderful in the Fall!

Sounds like y'all had a great time. Sorry we had to miss it again this year. Sooner or later our schedules will work out and we can hook up. Speaking of which, shoot me an email. I actually have next weekend off for a change and we are looking for something to do. My new digs are linked to above BTW. Still blogging at Shadowscope, but strictly crime stuff now.
