2009 Fest (post #88836)

Not meaning to kill the buzz from Peachfest but Kathy and I want to throw our names in the hat to host the Fest in 2009.


Dieselpig has dibs in my book, (maybe others do, too, I haven't been around much lately) but if he doesn't want to host, we'd like to be considered.  Not going to campaign or anything - let us know what the group decides.

I've already been privately agitating with some of your PacNW neigbors to organise a Westfest, so i could be easily persuaded to campaign on your behalf if Dieselpig doesn't exercise his 2009 options.

Your name came up in conversation around the fire when asking where do we go next.  Most agreed it was time to head west.  Colleen needs the break!!


 Always wanted to see your digs after visiting http://www.asmallwoodworkingcompany.com


Are there any posters of Gunner in the local sherrif's office out there? We need to make sure he can go.



(post #88836, reply #5 of 390)

    Might be. I did shoot my Mom in the butt with a bb gun when we lived there.


    With this much head start I might be able to make a West Coast deal . My wife has always wanted to to an out West trip. I'd like to spend a couple of weeks retracing my roots.


   I wonder if Ministers get any kind of discount on airfare. Somebody's going to either have to die and have their funeral at the fest. Or get married. I'm already looking for cheap travel deals. :)

You could make a coffin for your wife with some air holes in it, ship her out on the same flight.  If she can lift the lid and get out, she might even be able to climb up the ladder and join you for the rest of the flight.  Otherwise she'd probably sleep better by herself anyway.  


Reminds me, I once tried to drop a friend's ashes out the side window of my little airplane.  Some of him came back in.  Had to be vacuumed up and deposited, without ceremony, elsewhere.

   I'd feel better if you ran that scheme by her. While I was out of the state.

I've been told that I give good phone.  Will that do?

(post #88836, reply #30 of 390)

    No. You need to be on site and take the punch yourself.

    Smart move. About ten minutes ago she took a steak knife to the head and never wobbled. I'd hate to try her toe to toe.

Stick and move.  I'm pretty good at stickin' a drywall hatchet from across the room.  Maybe you should learn that technique, in case you need to move up from small utensils.

   That would be a great demo at the fest.

It's pretty easy really.   Just make sure that the inside end of the handle hits first.  That drives the hatchet head into the drywall.  


I first tried it after noticing the similarity between the tomahawk, often used as a throwing weapon, and the drywall hatchet. 


I found that the tool has enough balance and feel to make it easy to judge how much spin to put on it.  One revolution is ideal.  


BTW, it's not a good idea to try it more than once in each house or apartment, prior to taping of course.  Not all tapers are impressed by attempts to emulate American Indian customs.   Multiple attempts are really frowned upon.

   With my luck she'll snatch it out of mid air. Then what do I do?

Beg for mercy, I guess. 


I pretend to be bold but I've been fully domesticated and approved for further service to the female of our species, by my mother and grandmother.  I believe there's a stamp or mark, signifying that, somewhere on my butt.  


It's either that or my heavily endoctrinated deference toward women that tips them off.   My wife avoids the subject entirely, confirming in my mind that there's a grand conspiracy going on behind our backs. 

(post #88836, reply #85 of 390)

    There's a whole nuther world going on behind our backs. Trust me.

That's cool with me. I've never been to that part of the country.


Dustinf mentioned during the golf that he was getting married near the end of May next year. I suggested to him that we have a wedding fest, and BTers could all show up and party with him.


For some reason, he wasn't real crazy about the idea. <G>

(post #88836, reply #9 of 390)

Um, no.


Although my bachelor party is going to be in Vegas.  You guys are invited for that.

"bachelor party in Vegas"


You just want some patsies if things go awry. Call Gunner.

Don't know why they'd be necessary, but he's probably got some pasties he's harvested as well.


(post #88836, reply #25 of 390)

Gunner's good for all contingencies. LOL

C'mon. Get on Facebook and get some kids to attend the 2009 Fest!!

Hmm. Don't think so. Some hot black chicks maybe.


(post #88836, reply #118 of 390)

That ship has sailed, my friend.

Another west fest has been long overdue.  When was the last one?  Quakefest at LisaL's in 2003?


I think there are many more regular posters from the west than there used to be, too.


I have a lot of family up there in Shelton, Federal Way, Seattle, and Tacoma, and of course my best girlfriend out in Index.


I'm there for sure.  Let me know how I can help.

I've never been to those uber liberal states that get washed by the mighty Pacific. DW's been on me to take her on a left coast holiday. A Crazylegs Fest  might just be the ticket. There's free weed out there, isn't there?
