We can't take him anywhere.
We had some money left over from the Homeland Security thingie so I took the liberty of commissioning a few things for us.
We now have an official drink. You can tell it's aged. It says Old right on the label.
Our own coffee mug. I probably should have gotten the metal ones. These will be all over the floor but I figured there's enough bad words flying around the Official Command Center Converted to a Kitchen without guys burning their fingers.
I even had an official insignia sewn up. That makes us kinda official official.
And I purchased some jackets for the security detail.
I want two of the patches and a case of brew. Is an order form available?

Oh, you silly. Just show up at the next meeting. I think BBQ'd bacon is on the menu. I know 2D's mule likes the dry rub BBQ and since the mule is cooking I'm sure that's what we'll have. Brew's in the box, on the two rescue vessels, in the metal truck and under the kitchen sink in the Command Center Turned into a Kitchen. The patches are......oh, crap....I forgot where I put them. I'll get back to you. Where are those things?
At last, something I really know about! Y'all need a Coxswain ta man the helm?
Surprisingly ('specially fer a Choctaw) I know how ta do it, including standing the danged boat on its transom without turnin' turtle. (Also know how to circle back an' retrieve crewmembers lost overboard during the previous maneuver.)
Experience gained in St. Andrew's Pass, Panama City FL, though with a smaller vessel...

Good heavens. You already have AAA and AARP discounts. Ya'll gotta pick up the ball, too. I've been doin all the foot work and I'm pretty tuckered out just typin' all that.
Crash jiggled my memory so I gave Mohammed a call over at the local Homeland Security Office. I told him how we used to have an airplane but the mule managed to crash it. He said drones were pretty popular right now. I told him I wasn't talkin' about bees. I was talkin' about airoplanes. He just chuckled. Anyway, he said he had a few used airplanes that he might be able to fix us up with. He emailed me this photo and told me all we had to do was pick out the one we wanted.
Land O Goshin', I said. How could a fellah choose one plane out of all those. He said we could have two then. I asked him about flight attendants and he just chuckled again. That Mohammed is a chuckler if you ask me.
So...all we have to do is mosey on over to that big field behind the Homeland Security Office and pick out the airplanes we want. I asked him if they had any of those leather helmets but he just chuckled again. Let's all meet over at the Command Trailer Turned Into a Mobile Kitchen and have some bacon sammiches tomorrow after noon. We'll have a short nap and then go pick out our planes.
The Homeland Security Office is at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson? Will wonders never cease...?
Oh, they probably have one there, too. But we got one right here in our own backyard. I've thought a spell about those airplanes. Why, if we had one when you know who lost the boat we could have just flown up river to search for it instead of driving up there and thinking about walkin' around lookin' for it. Of course, we did find Fatty Shuster's Hamburger Emporium on the drive. That lost boat sort of of lost it's importance when we came eyeball to eyeball with a Shuster Double Decker Bacon and Cheese Jalepeno Surprise. With fries of course.
I want to thank all you guys for showing up at the Command Center Turned Into a Kitchen, eating all the bacon sammiches and then leave me to hike the field in search of a couple of airplanes. You know how much I hate hiking on a full bacon belly.
Anyway. I've come up with a couple of candidates. I was kinda concerned about the wings sticking out too far to park them in the parking lot so here's what I came up with.
I just liked the red and blue color scheme on this one.
And Mohammed offered us a two for one special with this one. I love a bargain.
for an old fella, you don't forget nuthin,, I keep saying that boat deal was a little axledent. But I am right proud of your eye for aero craft, must have been tough to choose, full of bacon and all
.45 ACP Because shooting twice is silly... The avatar says it all,.45 because there isn't a.46
That red and blue kept me circling back time and time again. I don't know what it is but that color scheme is kinda eye catchin. I'm gonna park it right across from the Command Center Turned into a Kitchen so we keep a close eye on it.
For the new members that may not know we do have an organization here at the forum that does high risk rescues and such. We're the Fairly Agile Response Team better known as the F.A.R.Ts. We have quite a record for missions. So far, we've rescued 27 pounds of bacon, 18 pounds of coffee and 11 jars of hot sauce. Meetings are held when bacon goes on sale at Meijer. We generally start our meetings with an opening ceremonial nap followed by rescuing bacon followed by the closing ceremonial nap. It takes a years of specialized training and a high degree of intelligence to work up to a F.A.R.T. but we encourage everyone to apply. If you can pass our intelligence test you can be considered.

Can you repeat the question?

Do you have any plans for the little planes in O, say, 9 months? Do they hatch? I thought this was a family friendly forum by the way. Plane porn, sheesh.
