Mornin’ all, 50* here this am. 

We are having a around the block party tonite. We are doing appetizers and libations a neighbor is doing dinner and another neighbor is doing desserts and cordials. Probably 8 couples. Starts at 5 and most likely will finish by midnight.

Mornin all you nursing home candidates, and to the rest of us who are still young enough to work, have a great day!

When I walked into the FOP lodge Tuesday evening for the retiree's dinner, I thought I had walked into a nursing home at dinner time.

Sunny and hot today, gonna be in the upper 90s here at the port.

An Oilfield Joke....... Bucky






Someone came out to the rig to see what the fellas would do.....he gave the Company Man ( a Petroleum Engineer ) three small steel balls about 1 inch around.....


.....he gave the toolpusher three steel balls and he gave a roughneck three steel balls......



Later, he went to check on the fellas.....




The Company Man had the three steel balls standing on top of one another on his desk top like a spherical totem pole!!!  




The toolpusher had the three balls racing around his trailer gaining horsepower!!!   




.....umm.....the roughneck lost one, broke another one, and had the third one in his lunch box.....

Okay Ed, what's the punchline?

I had an interesting weekend, but it was a Chinese curse of sorts.

Most of it had to do with the pistol club and our annual meeting and shoot off. I managed to upset the apple cart and ruffle some feathers (imagine that), and I think it cost me in the shoot off.
We elect club officers at the annual meeting, and we've had the same officers (excluding board members) for over 5 years. The officers, especially the president have been getting dictatorial with the club and refusing to respond to member concerns with a "it's my way or the highway" attitude. We had the perfect person to replace our president, so when nominations were opened I nominated him. After 2 votes (the first was a tie), my man won by 3 or 4 votes. There were a lot of shocked folks, and of course it was my fault.
I was in the B class shoot off against 3 other shooters. I started in 3rd place points wise so I only had lane choice against 1 shooter. I smoked the 4th and 2nd place shooters in our shoot off. When I came up against the 1st place shooter we tied. On the our last target we both fired at the same time, bullet impact on the plates at the same time, and both plates hit the ground at the same time. Yet the RO (a friend of the old president) said the 1st place shooter fired first and therefore won the shoot off. Even after my protest and demand for a re-shoot, the claim was the other shooter shot first and won. End of story. There are no 2nd place winners in a gun fight or a shoot off.
Good sportsmanship tasted bitter, but I swallowed it anyway, because I knew I had pissed in their Wheaties.
That was an interesting weekend. I spent a case and a half of ammo practicing for that shoot off.
