1) The Tennessee trip is winding to a close. Gunsmith Bob and I had lunch with Unc, Michael Silence, Insty, and Helen today at Stir Fry Cafe. One of these days I'm going to remember to jot stuff down at these things because the conversation is always witty, and I thought to myself at least a half-dozen times "Oh, that's perfect; I am so blogging that..." I will hopefully be seeing Jen for lunch tomorrow. It's back to Far Off Frozen Cold North Yankee Land on Friday morn.
