Legion Feed

Saturday there was a feed at the Legion and I do believe it was the largest crowd I've seen there so far. All of the tables were full during the meal and about four of us sat outside in the cool wind to eat. One of the guys (Dennis) had a tripod setup with a large cross section of a tree trunk on it for a target and we threw tomahawks and knives at it. That is a very addictive thing and I plan to build my own here to practice. I actually got pretty darned good at it.The actual targes is a playing card right in the center of the wood and Juan managed to get a bull's eye on that throw. Scoring goes like this. Hitting the wood target anywhere other than the card is one point. Hitting the card is two points and cutting a piece off the card gets you three points.
Picture above is a couple of the women line dancing to the music. There were a number of musicians there and they took turns playing and singing and some times joined in with each other.
And then... One of the local Sheriff's deputies (Paul) showed up with his guitar and finished up the entertainment by playing and singing. I think he missed his calling because he is a hell of a musician and singer.

Lee supplied the pig for the feed and it was cooked under ground in a 55 gallon barrel.
Needless to say everyone had a great time.

BTW it rained and misted off and on yesterday and last night. The gauge shows about 1/3 inch. I think its over now though even though its totally cloudy.

  4. Wish we could've been there, David. As kids, we used to throw knives at the trunks of trees, and you're right, it is addictive fun. We used to also play that game where you'd throw the knife at the ground near your feet, then step over to where the knife was sticking in the ground, or something like that. It's been so long ago that I've forgotten exactly how it goes!
    Any time there's live, acoustic music being played is a good time. Really wish we could've been there for that part. I've been playing and singing for a number of years, now, and always enjoy a good pickin' party.
    Pig slow cooked in the ground = excellent eating!

    1. Ah No... I hear she was probably at the Terlingua Saloon for a pajama party or something like that.

  6. You're being modest in not mentioning that killer batch of fudge you brought! Dangerous stuff, but mighty fine.

  7. It looks like once again the Legion Feed was a success.

    I love it when musicians come together for an improvised jam session, the winners are always the lucky ones that got to hear them.

    1. MsB, there was no lack of entertainment and it was great. I'm pretty sure there will be more functions like that down the road.

  8. Never been to a feed at the Legion, maybe next time we are down there we'll time it right.

    Seems like Charlie (accordion) and Judy (Guitar) show up at every gathering to play! I really like some of the stuff they do, maybe I'll get to hear the Sheriff play some day. Did he do that Bob Marley song, I shot the Sheriff, but I didn't shoot the deputy?

    1. QKid, Nope and I guess no one was brave enough to request that song. ;) I like that song though.
