A great time was had by all


Saturday night was the first ever (to our knowledge) Nebraska Bloggers Bash. Held at an undisclosed location there were four Nebraska Bloggers in attendance and a great time was professed to be had by all.

Two of the attendees have already posted on the event.

That would be Vinnie of Vince Aut Morire




And his lovely wife Merri of Merri Mussings.


PTG of the Plains Feeder was there as well. Vinnie has the scoop on that including a couple of pictures of me and that ole Curmudgeon from the Feed Lot. (I thought sure I was a little more muscular than that but hey you know how the camera lies.)

Outing Myself

Just so you heard it here first (Vinnie mentioned a full expose in detail on the Jawa Report at some future time of his choosing)

Today, August 14th is My and Mrs Gunscribe's Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary, so the Bash was a bit of pre-celebrating for us along with spending time with some of the best Bloggers the Cornhusker State has to offer. ( I was so not worthy, I was so not worthy)

30 years ago when we wed the radio station her Dad worked at dedicated a song to us commemorating our day.

The song you ask?

Put another Log on the Fire by Tom Paul Glaser (<-- Click for the lyrics)

So Saturday night The Missus, Merri and PTG's squeeze conspired with the band. The first I knew of this little conspiricy was when I was called to the bandstand and handed a microphone.

The lead singer then pointed out the wife who had stepped onto the dance floor. Still wondering what was up the band commenced to play the song Put another Log on the Fire.

Now I am not shy about being in front of a lot of people, I have been on stage a lot in my life, but the unexpected situation I had been thrust into caused me to momentarily draw a blank. (okay I admit it I froze) I couldn't remember the words to the song for several seconds.

Regaining my composure and with an audiance of several hundred people I put mic to mouth and belted out a couple of verses of the old song while my wife looked on lovingly.

At that point I noted that Vinnie had slipped up close to the dance floor as well. I have yet to confirm whether he digitaly recorded the event for posterity or future blackmail.

But hey I am off the hook now cause I just told on myself. Put that on the Jawa Vinnie. Hehehehehehe!!!!

Besides that the wife hates that song anyway, but the whole point of her clandestine plan was to put me on the spot. It worked too I was totally suprised (which is hard to do) and I love her all the more for it.

Thank you Merri. Thank you Vinnie. Thank you PTG. Thank you all for a wonderful evening.

And most of all THANK YOU MRS. GUN for a wonderful evening and thirty glorious years.

Note; We all decided that it is worth doing again and would really like to see more of Nebraskas Bloggers attend.

P.S. Vinnie made mention in his post of some Blogger crashers. I have no idea how these Islamotards found out about the super secret location of of our get together, but one of my unnamed sources is tracking down a picture that was purportedly taken of them. As soon as I can get my hands on it (er.. um.. ahhh.... download it from my digital camera) it will get posted. Rumor has it that several pics were taken of the four turban clad crashers, someone else may post it before I can.
