OOT


A gathering of my tribe has been called, I can but obey.

Headed off to Alexandria until Sunday.

I might post, I might not.

An After Action Report will be forthcoming.

I haven't seen some of these folks in a while, some are the best friends I've never met, which will be corrected on Saturday evening. I suspect that The Hobbit and maybe even SNO will be in attendance.

We gather to remember this guy...


Be seeing you...




Those who know, know.
OOT can be Canadian for "out," but in this case it means "Out Of Town."

  1. Keep your eyes open out there, it'd be pretty silly to drive with them closed....

    1. You mean....I gotta keep Beans under control????

      I need to run to the Class VI. Jamison's and Guinness. Lots of Jamison's and Guinness.

  5. Enjoy the pilgrimage. Must drink the holy beverages. And take your eyepatch with you, if you haven't left already, because drinking like a pirate can be fun.

    1. The eyepatch was left behind. Orders man. Orders.

    2. I may try to join you in a distant toast if you inform me as to the expected time. Bean's, you're free to join me, assuming Juvat plies you with sufficient quantities of Jamison's.

    3. Tuna, the gathering begins at 1700 local. That's 1400 out there.

  6. Enjoy the pleasant and scenic drive down I-95 - I've always thought the part on the NJ turnpike and then the part thru Baltimore was the most enchanting and had the most courteous drivers!

    (do I need to add /sarc ??)

    Seriously, watch out for the other guys on the road and stay safe!

    1. We flew as driving to VA (and back) on a three-day weekend is just too much.

  8. Hope you all have a great time, drinking stuff that's apparently good for your health and such. My best to Hizzoner's fam.

  10. Failed to follow the right patch to the rendezvous. Maybe next time. Sadly, I thought I'd see the details here but we were mislead to Oberlin instead. Glad you took out the memory brush and had a few to recall Lex. He had a way with words second to none.

    1. Ouch. I should have made a better effort to get you there Cap'n. Mea culpa.

      Note that a lot of the blog and Rhythms is going to be published by the Naval Institute Press. The Hobbit indicates it's a done deal.

      It was awfully nice seeing her and Kat.

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
