There is only two things that I can say about the subject matter.

That is a pan full of prime beef and letting Tiny around with it a fork is like allowing the fox to guard the chickens.

How many Larry Browns does it take to open a wine bottle?

Mike, it looks like the flames got away from the grill and burned a little ground behind you. When I close this topic, it take a few seconds for the smoke on my computer screen to clear. :lol:

With TREMENDOUS apologies to H.W. Longfellow:

The Flatwater Smith

On Grandpa's Sporting Acres,
the Grill and Smithy stands,
the smith a TINY man is he,
with gnarled UNcheckered hands! :P
And in his hands there is a BEER
his apron now adorns a deer! :shock:

Tiny later confided that the leather welder's gloves were the best thing he's EVER brought to Flatwater. :D

Brought. As you'll recall Tiny didn't leave anything behind this year, he only thought he did.

Of course, they improved his grip while handling the non-checkered handles of the fork and the tong.

Since these gave him control and a good grip on a non-checkered surface, one must wonder if Tiny continues with his bias against checkering, might we see these as part of his 'shooting apparel' on the course next year? :?

Ha! I didn't even bribe Larry to say that (since his bottle of tequilla has NOT yet been delivered :evil: ). The gloves really were a Godsend- last year the hair was singed half way up my arms. Truth be told, Larry had a new regulator for the grill that we didn't get around to putting on, and the grill was either Dante's inferno or the burners went out. The fat on those strips made it extra challenging. I gave my driver a steak that was cooked way past what he wanted, and if there were others not done properly I do apologize. I really do smile more at Flatwater, but the last shot had me trying to recover from a face full of smoke for the last 30 or 40 minutes. I'm already planning my arrival attire for '09, and my grilling attire (assuming I am not fired) will probably be a full fireman's suit with oxygen mask. Maybe Wes can help with that...

A Top Fuel driver's suit (Big Daddy '60's style) would work as well or better. I have no steak complaints, mine was as desired and for that I remain grateful.

Hang in there, Larry- I received a secret message stating your tequilla should be delivered soon...

Only appropriate, Stack. Officers are used to having their wine opened for them, at the O Club, by some enlisted puke who's working part time to make a few extra bucks--or said enlisted puke's wife, mistress, teenage child, etc. :)

Sorta like the remark the American made at Purdey's, when he had difficulty closing a self-opener and remarked: "Wow, this gun is hard to close!" To which the gentleman at Purdey's replied: "Sir, our clients don't close their own guns."
