Shanghaied!

Friday morning I was kidnapped by several members of my volunteer fire department, packed into a non-descript vehicle and transported against my will to a secluded cabin in Pipestem State Park...
It was there I was forced to eat hamburgers, hotdogs, steak cooked on a grill, chips and various other munchies...
Sit around and swap old 'war' stories for hours...
Saturday night I was taken to a place where a live band was performing and saw a very large member of my squad flat-foot to bluegrass... Then later that night I was taken to Mulligan's and consumed more adult beverages in one night than I have in a very long time...
Only to be unceremoniously dumped on my doorstep this afternoon with a major headache...
Now if I can only survive work tonight...

Poor you! LOL! Hey, did you attend the convention? I saw in todays paper that Randolph Mantooth was there. If I'd known, I'd have trekked over and got his piccie and autograph. Or at least stalked him a little bit ;D

Sounds like you have thoughtful friends :-) Wouldn't mind being kidnapped like that. Bayer works great on a headache.

SOunds like a great weekend to me. Drink lots of water. You may be dehydrated.

Linny: It was horrible! I don't think I'll ever be the same!

Outdoorsey Girl: I'll say! It took all my strength to hold on... The old Ranger willpower to survive pulled me through!

Lisa: Ya' think?
