Take lots of pictures!

Well, if we are counting down, I have reserved a room at the Holiday Inn at Ft Payne as I am too old to sleep on the ground or in my small car. I may allow my son to bring my Baby Nambu, but don't anyone give him any ammo to shoot in it! Plans are to spend the night in Birmingham on Thursday (Trey will be gone and I can plunder his toys Very Happy ) and get up early and drive to the Blevins plantation with my grandson, G4, on Friday. I think he has 3 ammo cans full of various calibers. See you all there. Safe driving to all!

D-Day - 5 (Sunday) through D-Day - 2
The festivities began shortly after local Church services on Sunday. Diamond Dave rolled in to town in the Green Dragon (green and drags horses and stuff to market) with a truckload of beverages and wares.

The days progressed quietly and 'grease was applied heavier and thicker the longer we went'. We took mini-trips to 'Little China in AL', 'The Grasshoppers Den of Sin', The world renowned 'Birmingham Pistol Parlor', and 'Southern Appraisals'. Bargains were noted at each station along the way, and some purchases made and others planned.

Food and beverage was sampled. Movies watched. A parallel was drawn between the age old battle of Godzilla vs. Megalon to the more modern Southern battle in regards to Kudzu vs. Wysteria. While I personally think Godzilla rules, (a more powerful name base and just overall much cooler in general), I would tend to support Wysteria over Kudzu, Defuc was so distraught, he felt more medicinal beverage was in order.

A 'Chinese Mouser' weighing in at about 20 lbs (Mausers tend to be blue and brown while Mousers are rusty and black), was 'bathed' and reweighed in about about 8 lbs...the other 12lbs is in the floor and various cleaning cloths used, good fertile original chinese soil and rust... A one-eyed midget Chinese import rifle (Type 97 short rifle of onknown caliber) received a make over and slimmed down considerably. That little beauty was about 4 fried chickens and a replacement bolt from finding a new daddy.

A few I took: Trey,in his formal attire...Weldon and a comrade comparing notes,battle scars or something, and Weldon and Pal recieving instruction in the T-99 light machine gun from S.Zeigler.

The shootout was great.ILL probably write a report ,once I recover a bit.
