Dang...only reason why I went was because they said James Hand was going to play...Only they thought he was going to do it for free, and he was forced to inform them this is his job and he plays for money...So no James "Slim" Hand...dang!...But because I can't go anywhere with out bringing food, I made an apple cobbler(and one for Babs) okra fritters and green chili hush-puppies...The cobbler and the okra fritters were a big hit but the hushpuppies were too salty...and the green chili flavor sort of faded in the cooking, so will have to rethink that recipe. But damn, the okra fritters..they rocked..I knew I should have made a double batch...they were gone in minutes..I stayed about 2 1/2 hours..one diet Dr pepper and one water...I actually ended up busing some tables and getting some beers for people to help the bartender out. She was really busy..Saw some people I haven't seen in ages...saw my kinda sorta cousin Ricky Maler...every time I see Ricky I remember all the drugs we did..I'm surprised we survived our misspent youth..ha!..Youth my ass...that was 25 years ago..I wasn't a
'ute' as Billy Pilgrim calls them..I was in my thirties..I took all the pictures up there and Pasty took the ones of her saying damn my ass is big and put them in her purse..Then she went and got her ass locked in the bathroom...I thought she was gone a long time, then Chief's new girlfriend told Merle that Patsy was locked in the bathroom and he had to go jimmy the door to get her out..Patsy said she was sending a carpenter down first thing in the morning to fix that fucking door..
I got a phone call from Vicki(junebugg)
saying barring tornadoes, floods, or the second coming of Jesus, she would be here Thursday afternoon...She's coming from M. Alabama for the Westfest..I haven't heard from Sooner, but the last I talked to him, he was coming too...I'm so excited...2 of my friends are making it for Westfest..Now hopefully by next year after I rave and go on about how much fun we had more of you will show up ...You can put in your vacation for next year now and have an entire year to save up and plan your trip..I'll promise to make lots of okra fritters, stuffed jalapenos and cobblers...might even throw in a pot of chili..
Well, have to go do laundry....argh...I have to..I can't get in my bedroom with out a gun bearer and a guide..It's not to late for you to make this years Westfest...grab a pillow and come on down...
