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.

I couldn’t figure it out either ~ their website is wonky. It looks to me to be two cottages and a house/cottage. Each of them can sleep up to eight people. I put a call into them to see if it is handicap accessible ~ just in case the Robinson’s join us next year.

I have previous looked at the website of the first one ~ their range price are pretty high. The second range seems to be members only.

My Rib eye was “so so” but it was a good dinner.
Great venue, and good friends.

The Beer was awesome and the ranch fries rocked.

I think I will stick to the “fall a part” ribs next time.

Did I tell you how well behaved your kids are? (I meant to.) I enjoyed having your son in the pool room with us. He seemed to be having a good time.

Thank you.

He’s so cute. I just had to tussle his hair one time. Think I embarrassed him.

LOL. He's not used to pretty girls paying attention to him yet.

I’ve already told that story to DrO and he roared. Showed the obama poster to him also. I’m trying to talk him into attending next year, provided Allen attends too. I know DrO would love everyone. His kind of people.

Whoo!

WHOA! We made a couple of pee stops and one to eat, at Ramsey's in Victoria. Great breakfast, but no grits, after 11:00AM. :( Their biscuits are and gravy were wonderful.

This one contains plenty of fine and interesting people. I almost didn't post it, but upon closer inspection, I found a great bunch of folks. And some strange woman.



Here's Eaker having margaritas with LuvW.

Not pictured: All the rest of the TCMS shooters, their families, and some strange woman are out of the frame, LOL!

If you don’t mind posting them, that would be great. Hubby is now looking online for grills and I would also have to sign up for a pic posting account somewhere to do it too and it could be days before I get it done....lol.

Good idea on the accessibility stuff. Hopefully by then Jim will have his new chair too and can jump bigger humps with ease. Ask about the johns too. Like how many in each cottage and the house, etc. i read something about no ‘paper’ in the toilets...does that mean tp too?? That might be gross....lol.
I will also call a friend and see what places she knows around those parts. They have huge family reunions every couple of years down that way and she probably knows many of the places that are set up for bigger groups.

The place you found looks really awesome though, so hope it works out!

You and humblegunner, both. Hubby saw it sitting there, all lonely and blue, and he stashed it in its little black bed and put it back in the car. (WTHeck???) I wasn't even done with the stinkin' thing.

He heard about that for a few seconds on the way home, I'll tell ya what. However, I do not go on and on about that stuff. A short but scathing comment, and I'm done.

We were going to stop by and let Gunner shoot it on our way home, but he didn't have time anymore. Sigh...

Y'all will just have to shoot it next June 8. And it's not getting put up until everybody who wants to has fired it.

And we'll just go on ahead and load up the 50rd mags as well, and we'll convert our one 30rd to 50.

Yep BK is fine....vet thinks it is just a bad bite that is trying to absess. Taking him back on Friday to make sure it is going away and not a tumor. It isn’t a tumor though because it wasn’t there last week. I rub his belly all the time and never felt it before. Got all his shots and tested him for feline luekemia and Kity aids and he is all clear on that too. Now time to let all the cats get to know each other and get rid of the plyboard thingy....lol.
