Well, got the truck packed and ready to head over to join "The Rock" Rendezvous of bonafide
red necks, woodsmen, saltchuckers, and old cowboys. Hoping to catch the 10:40 am ferry.
If I miss it I won't worry though, I have 4 nice pies to tide me over, lol!

What a great get together. We had the pleasure of hosting Dave(Big Lew) and Tuk for a couple of days(Thanks for all your help Dave).
The food was seemingly never ending.
Matt/Linda(Mr and Mrs Nog)--some great smoked fish
Steve(Finadict) was responsible for some awesome "appy" plates (sausage cheese smoked fish crackers etc)
Dave/Jeanie(Mr and Mrs Vettman) arrived on their Harley with Delux Nachos galore in the trailer
Glenn/Jackie(Mr and Mrs Nahmint) brought 2 big plates of deviled eggs and a couple of special libations (to be discussed later)
CC put out all the fixins for tacos along with beef/pork and of course the Halibut fried in Panco crumbs. And I produced a pot of "Mexican Strawberries"
And Last but certainly far from least Dave(Big Lew) took care of desert with 4, count em 4 pies(apple, peach, Boo Berry and cheery)

Great day, great company lots of good discussion.

More to come latter.

Great is o.k., but I think FANTASTIC would describe the FEAST!!!!!!!!
everyone enjoyed themselves and to echo JIM, a BIG thank you to the folks who served the endless treats.....JIM being too modest,. he deep fried some AWSOME Halibut ...so good, no added sauce etc. was required.
I did look after our critters on arriving home,then layed down just before 8p.m. awoke about 11.30 p.m
had a shower and then slept until 9 a.m. Thanks again,everyone who part took in the fun....and BIG LEW'S PIES!!!!!!! life IS good when around good people !!!!

Well, after a round-a-bout path from the Ferry, We made it home in good shape.
That gathering was absolutely wonderful! So much good food, and so many friendly
people. I really enjoyed the 'Shindig.'
Most of all though, I want to thank 'Foxton Gundogs' (Jim) and 'CC' for inviting me into
their fine house, for providing Tuk and I complete use of their secondary suite and dog yard,
and for treating me so kindly....one of the best times I've enjoyed while visiting non relatives.
Two very generous and 'down to earth' people. Jim has hooked up with an incredible and
spunky gal.

Now THAT was Some Fun!! :Oh Yeah!:
Really good to see some Buddies (Like Mike but with an L?) and make a few new ones!

Wish we did not have to depart as early as we did, was just getting into it!
Ah, but both the old dawg at home, and the one who made it there were due for pill time. Dammit!
Going to have to make a point of sticking it right out one of these days!

Happy I didn't crush that beauty of a bike on the way out!! :Don't Go There:

Cheers & Thanks!

Thanks again to FG and CC for their wonderful hospitality and great venue. You have a beautiful ranch and we couldn't ask for a better place for the O.F.B.S.L.R.N.A meeting (Right hand raised up , palm forward.....; "Hi, My name is Finaddict and I am an O.F.B.S.L.R.N", Its been 2 months since my last meeting.....") .

The food was an epicurean delight and my complements to the many chefs. The locale and the company was first class

I was just resting my eyes !!!!!!!!
I might just add, for a ''site'' that was doomed to fail ( by changing its name and of poor ''management'' ) T.N.O.F. has become the best damn place to ''hang yer hat''. First class people ,what else would you expect !!!!! proud to be here....
