And so begins our annual 7th TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot.

Photobucket

Thank you humble gunner for the graphic.

TexasCowboy (aka COB1) was a true Texas gentleman, great friend, patriot, and a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment. It is truly an honor to continue a tradition he started many years ago, hosting shoots for FRiends around the great state of Texas.

Many FReepers are coming into town on Thursday so that they can have a tourist day on Friday. Those lucky people are going to be made (a good) miserable Thursday evening by enjoying TheMom’s Kick Ass Enchilada’s.

The only set tourist place is The Lady Lex.

Friday evening we will meet at Captain Benny’s, 103 Fulton Beach Road Fulton, TX 78382, at 8:00 p.m., for a delicious seafood dinner. (They do not take credit cards or serve liquor ~ so remember to bring your cash & booze.)

Saturday morning we meet for breakfast at Alice Faye’s, 910 North Fulton Beach Road, Fulton, TX 78358, at 8:00 a.m. The shoot is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. at, Schwenke’s Gun & Pistol Range, 4407 FM 1069 Aransas Pass, TX, 78336. Mr. Schwenke has reserved the 25 yard shooting station for our group to use as “home base”. The only major rule at this range is do not shoot the livestock. A BBQ lunch will be served at 12:30ish.

Once the shooting is done some of us will be going to the Rockport Seafair, while others will go back to the Pelican Bay cottages for some R&R. Saturday evening will be filled with yummy junk food and margaritas!

According to the forecast, it looks as the weather will be perfect. Lows in the mid-sixty’s, highs in the mid-eighty’s.

Dang it - it meant to hit the edit button instead of the post button. Guess I have not had enough caffeine this morning.

I believe it is the best way to honor his memory.

Each year he is right there with us.

Awesome. Living in New Jersey and moving to Texas must be like dying and waking up in Heaven for us gun-people.

Y’all have great time this weekend, wish we was down yonder with y’all. It’s been a long day keeping the chair warm in the waiting room :-(

Just talked to the O/R liason nurse and everything has gone well with Mrs alfa6’s surgery. It will be another hour or two before I will get to see her.

Will give an update later, probably tomorrow.

Y’all stay safe out there

Best Regards

You Texans sure know how to have a good time.

I remember T.C. well-—I can’t believe he’s been gone so long.

I’m from MA. Oh well!

TheMom made her famous Enchiladas for dinner tonight.

I served up four batches of Margaritas. Onyx had to be poured into bed. And everyone else is sleeping VERY comfortably tonight...
