Yep it's that time again I'm thinking for the main meal we'll have brisket, pulled pork, some sausages, and chicken.
I have a new smoker rig this year, old rusty got ran over by a sleeping driver in the parking lot at the shop. It's a wild story.

My plan is to be there with any number of girls. I will have the heaters and tarps as usual. There is a possibility that my plans will be changed as I am now at the upper level of the transplant list. I received my first call on grid as y and spent the night in the hospital before the decided the kidney was not viable.

Hopefully Gary will give me a ride in his new boat.



I'd be happy to bring some coyotes and do a coyote grading demo also.

Re: TWIN BRIDGES T-MAN gettogether Spoonbill time - 02/20/19 11:15 PM

Coolstucco, I hope you can make it, and go fishing. Above all, we pray for your health. Marty B, we'll go fishing for sure.
I hope some warm weather blows in for the week before the festivities, along with some warm water and flow, to get the spoony's moving!

Re: TWIN BRIDGES T-MAN gettogether Spoonbill time - 02/21/19 10:34 AM

Gary, we have a site reserved starting Wednesday. I look forward to visiting with you and everyone else and hopefully fishing. Thank you for the prayers, God has a plan, I just hope I don't screw it up too bad.

too bad.

God will keep you straight, but may hold back some saurkraut balls for ransom. We should be there by Monday. Gotta reserve a site still. We like the site we normally get, because of the parking for the boat. We will come by on Wed. to visit, and get a plan together!

Cletis, we aren't going to make it down. My last aunt on Dad's side past yesterday and services are going to be Saturday morning. Sorry we will be missing seeing our friends, but it just isn't in the cards this year. Hope everyone has a great time and eat some extra fish for me.

I'm not going to come down. My county, town, and more specifically my kitchen is full of water.

I apologize for any inconvenience, things are a little out of my control right now.


I'll see you guys next year.

Re: TWIN BRIDGES T-MAN gettogether Spoonbill time - 03/18/19 06:29 PM

Well another T_man event pulled off successfully had 65 attend fish fry, about the same for Sat breakfast and almost a hundred for the noon activities....Thanks for all of the help and donations....Missed all who could not make it....maybe next year. The dirthole contest for the youngsters was a great success again.

See you next year.....don't forget the NTA will be in Springfield Mo at the Empire fairgrounds in July
