Sunday...a very good day.

On Sunday, a few of us got together to give Old NFO a proper send-off...and to celebrate his birthday.

Some of the Usual Suspects assembled. There was me, Proud Hillbilly, Wandering Neurons, Stretch (who really needs a blog), John from Excelling at Mediocrity, and the original Most Interesting Man in the World, Old NFO himself.

He's finally retiring and moving out west, but we couldn't let him go without one more lunch together...especially with it being his birthday and all.

Needless to say, the ladies all found him irresistible.

It was a nice lunch indeed, and then we capped the day by wandering over to Wal-Mart and buying a cart full of toys for the Marines' Toys for Tots program, which we then dropped off at the local Holiday Inn.
It only took a few minutes, but I like the idea of a couple dozen kids getting some presents this year. And a Fart Gun. Who picked out the Fart Gun? WN? Stretch? I'm looking at you guys.

Heck, we should have gotten Old NFO one too. For his birthday.

You will be missed, my friend. Gun shows won't be the same. Safe travels.

And happy birthday.


  1. Dammit! Why did you not call me? I would have made that trip to see friends on that occasion!

    1. Sorry was totally a last-minute thing. But we talked about you so you were kinda there.

      You gotta move closer.

    Fart Gun? I dunno nuttin' 'bout no steenin' Fart Gun. Nope, you got nuttin' on me. Didn't do it, weren't there.
    OK, guilty as charged...

    Yeah, had a great time visiting, shopping, and stirring up trouble.

  3. Fart gun. Perfect! I checked out his new home on line and it's a beautiful house. He's going to so love it - though I know he will miss all of you.

  4. Sounds and looks like you all had a great time! Fart gun aside...
