    Down South there ain't nobody buys 'm (but I said I will).


    Got the table reserved for eight peeps. Lindy says she might come. I'll be there at three sharp to grab the table. The place will probably be a little crowded (game day) so I'll be timely to stake our claim.

    For those who can’t make it... is there going to be a FaceTime or zoom meeting provided?
    This would be for the less fortunate who might drinking remotely (alone) and might enjoy watching/listening to the grandeur of Tennessee giants, WBF legends and other great fabricators (a glimpse into a world only others could speculate about).

Unless you want to be the man who wasn't there about whom we will certainly be saying potentially unflattering things, we strongly urge you Volunteers, Rednecks, Tarheels and/or carpetbagging Yankees to attend as well. This means you Dunkirk, Vince B. and Anthony Z. as well as anybody else in the general vicinity. Oh and you too, Lee. Who have we missed? We won't know unless you speak up.

    Nashville area location and time to be determined.

    I will be there. Paul says he will too so all we need are eight more people for a minion or two more for bridge.
    A minyan of minions. One's a quantity. One's a species. My work is done here.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    Will some random stills taken haphazardly as an afterthought do?

    We should have known. You are forgiven for this one but it won't soon be forgotten!

    Film at 11. We're still hanging and gabbing.

    Well, there’s amazingly good. This was absolutely freaking amazing. Pretty sure I could hallucinate with eyes closed sitting on the couch.

    Alright, got there early, had a beer and snack, didn’t find a barber but found two little shops next to each other up the street. A tea shop wth a huge selection and very nice staff. Got three kinds of puer tea. Next shop over a cutlery store specializing in Japanese knives. My need for $400 knives and $500 stones isn’t that great so I got couple books and very fine strainers that I’ll hide from the grandkids.
    Back at pub and found Lew and Lindy upstairs, What weight he lost compared to nine years ago I easily took on but we were recognizable. It’s a full on sports bar so a bit noisy. Tony Zucker, the Marshes and Chad filtered in.
    Really good to flesh out the online characters. I had figured Paul was in the ER after a car accident and so that deserved another beer, Will pulled up Pauls WBF post so I ordered another beer in relief that he was not hamburger.
    Retired to Lew’s so we could hear each other and gab some more.
    Two thumbs up.

    Oh, Lew you are right, there were some messy drivers out there. Right of way rules optional. Middle finger salutes popular.

    Driving in snow, it's an art.
    Glad to hear nobody's dead or in jail.
    I'd have to call that a big success!
