The Deming wrecking crew minus 2 made the trip to Williamsburg for the VFW Halloween party over the weekend. Stu and I arrived first closely followed by Hector, Betty, Wanda, and Pam. It was around 12:30. All got settled into rooms quickly and met at the VFW. We all wore our new “Wrecking Crew shirts” which everyone loved. The first order of business was to wet the whistle from the long (hour or so) dusty dirty ride from Deming to Williamsburg. It was rumored that the four in Hectors car were wetting before they got there but it was never proven.
Friday evening Sam set up all his karaoke stuff and got a good start on the evening. At one point during the evening I was presented with a gift which I was quite surprised. The reason, you ain’t gonna believe this. They did not know anyone else that would cut off their leg so that they could be a pirate for Halloween. Those people are flat out crazy. Loved it..
Saturday morning started out well enough, Bloody Mary’s and Coffee with or without Brandy. We finally made a corporate decision to go get some chewable food and off we went to Denny’s. This was an interesting experience as the waitress had a hard time with us and the orders. I asked for Pumpkin pie 3 times and she then finally brought Pecan Pie. OOP’S, I’ll bring the pumpkin………DUH! Afterwards we headed back to the “V” as it was decided that we were getting too late a start for going to the ghost town that we had intended to visit.
That night there was a costume party which was a real hoot. More Karaoke, and a couple more drinks. We closed the place at midnight again. Damn, hate it when that happens.
Sunday morning early. Earlier than we though as someone change dthe time on us in the middle of the night and forgot to tell us. Stu, Wanda and myself headed for Hillsboro. Wanda wanted to visit a friend there that had had a heart attack. It was a nice drive over from Williamsburg but we got there a might early. We drove on to Kingston, looked around then turned around and went back to Hillsboro. The cafe was finally open. We met Wanda’s friend Sonny and had breakfast there. Good ole biscuits and gravy………Then it was off to Deming as we have a pool tournament to play.
What a great weekend. I think that I can say that everyone enjoyed it.
Now for a few pictures.

Is it next year yet???
For those of you who are wondering how I am doing when not out running around and having fun here ya go.
I received my semi permanent prosthesis last week. I am working with it as long as I can tolerate it and as much as possible. I am not completely healed yet so things are still a little slow. Therapy has a whole new meaning now, and I am now able to put approximately 50 percent on my weight on it. My plan next week is to daily go out to the truck and work with the clutch and see how it goes. I ended up getting a Caucasian pink instead of Black or Mexican brown. There is a joke behind that comment.
While at the VFW in Williamsburg a lady came up to me and asked me if I would dance if she brought me a leg. Slightly confused, I said sure why not. Next thing I know she is standing in front of me with a leg in her hand. OOP’s…Sorry lady that’s the wrong leg and I can’t dance with 2 right legs. Her husband was an amputee, so she stole his leg……… Damn Vets, ya gotta watch em…………….
So long for now.
