    TT_W bolts at the first awkward silence...

    "So guys, do you think Star Trek was better than RoTS?"

    Other awkward things to say at Between the Buns this Thursday:


    "But yeah, before I knew Chewy was a boy, I thought he was kinda cute."

    As BDZ walks in...

    "Yeah, but BDZ and I haven't experimented like that since high school. Oh, hi!"

    It gets funnier as I consider the players, and which one would be most likely to say that.

    Hopefully it would be WOBDZ or Ovr30xrs. Speaking of...what ever happened to Ovr30xrs?

    Yes, I am hoping BDZ will be bringing both of them with him on Thursday.

    WOBDZ will be watching the kids and ovr gets up at 3am for work so I'm sure he is going to pass.

    i was informed that CH will not be coming. Also, I could be a little because my wife is working late tonight. If BDZ gets there for me, and then I am big trouble.

    That was a lot of fun. I really appreciate all of you taking the time to come out, its always great to see y'all because my chances to do so are so limited.

    A special thanks to BDZ for making the Herculean effort to get there, and to mercsailor for coming out of hiding for a night. And a VERY SPECIAL thanks again to MT for the AWESOME E-11. It will get a lot of use. Thank you, my friend. :)

    OK, I have more time to post, do you have more time to read?

    If so, than I suggest that you hustle off to the latest posting of the SBFF meeting notes.

    My thanks to all for a great trip to South Bend:)

    driving time there, 6-hours,
    And on the way home, left BTB at 10-pm and arrived home at 11:30-pm (2 hr and 30-min)
    Total mileage equaled 307 there and back.

    And my specific thanks,

    To the amazing X, for setting up reservations and getting things started for us later arrivals

    To G59, for the opportunity to watch a master note-taker at work. Once again, you have achieved
    Greatness by presenting a clear and concise and accurate account of why being with the SBFF is
    Great fun as well as an opportunity to participate in many goals and projects of this vast and complex organization whose sophisticate membership is rarely obfuscated by rules and regulations.

    To TL, for putting up with all my antics. A great guy with a wicked sense of humor,
    Love the salon reference:D

    To BDZ for managing to make room in his busy CR schedule to squeeze in time for this meeting.
    note; That was a most amazingly large stein of?.hhhhhhmmmm??ale??I have seen for a while.

    To: Jamie, you are most welcome_______ Just Keep On Trooping:cool:

    To: WOBDZ, who tho not physically there, many members reporting sensing something.

    To Merc, please o please take another chance and come visit again soon.
    Also, please remind me (ok to pm)
    of the event you were planning on attending that we kinda talked about.

    OK, now I am off to struggle with my photo-s. Seems I have forgotten how to use my camera,
    My computer, and Photobucket (which just changed how they do things)

    OK, have just woke up, and think I have my photo-s ready to go.

    They are all posted here in the order in which they were taken.


    First photo of wonderful sight of SBFF Star Wars fans already having fun.

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1656.jpg]


    Next, I get X to document that it was me that arrived. (see his photos)

    and then I manage to capture the arrival of TaunTaun_We

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1657.jpg]

    and then BDZ

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1658.jpg]


    Finally, a test photo (pretty good actually) to show the manager of BTB how to use my camera,

    and then two photos he took of all of us.

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1659.jpg]

    and then

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1660.jpg]

    and finally,

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/South%20Bend/IMG_1661.jpg]

    in looking back, I should have noticed that the papertowel stands were kinda in the way.

    Once again my thanks to all for a truely fantastic Star Wars time.

    and as always,

    wishing you all the best as always,

    and looking forward to next time:)

    Why yes.. I believe he is.

    And for some reason, the fact that it was caught in a picture makes it all the more funny to me..

    Great pictures, MT. You can really see the difference between a real camera with a flash and a cell phone camera.

    Thanks X, still wish I had taken more and had better framing,

    but, sure was fun to see the "walker to the groin" observation.

    anyway, well worth it for me to take the day off of work and visit

    you rabid SBFF Star Wars fans for a 1-day vacation:)

    also,

    a note, to Merc,

    I think I have found the 501st event you are planning on attending,
    and can tell you that I will miss it for sure if it is the
    weekend of Sept 12/13, as I will be in Ohio attending a
    Cincinatti pops SW concert that weekend.
