1 red or green pepper, chopped

I talked to the Smokin Hermit and
everything's lined up except for the Combat Controllers.
Depending on my count, Smokin will go to his Amish contact on Friday the 22nd
and pick out Susie Wong, which you're more than welcome to assist with. Here
that Floyd? Susie will get all cleaned up and arrive at
SgtMacsBar during the Smokin and a Grillin' event. I'll talk more about
that in another email, but I hope to have a 6' 7" SOG SF Commander (Big
Bob) Grillin brats from Wisconsin brought in by Roger James. We'll be smokin something
Smokin will set up outside
SgtMacsBar and start smokin Susie that night for the huge feast on
Saturday. He tried to talk me into some beans and potatoes salad, but I
declined. Bill Covington makes a heck of a potato salad and Jill doesn't
do too bad herself.
I pride myself on my beans, but I
ran into a salesman; Smokin is going to win out on the beans. He
about told me I was a fool not to have his "Smoked Beans". He

Now I Got A Problem! SgtMacsBar Open House
& Fun Raiser is a fund raiser and the funds raised are
to "Bring Us All A Little Bit Closer!" Hey, why didn't anyone
tell me I was spelling raiser wrong? I ask you to send
donations, but I don't want to use those donations for the open house; we'll
maybe some to buy a few beers for your buds........ depending on tips.
SgtMacsBar Open House & Fun Raiser is FREE.
However, that won't work if you don't come. I'll end up paying to bus our
homeless folks in to eat Susie Wong. I need your RSVP, like soon, so you
can get a hotel or I can line up some buses.
Will you help me make you have a
GREAT TIME? I promise, or will return all fees!
Did I tell you what I did this
last weekend? A few of us hopped on our bikes and rode to Oleans, MO. population 167........ except when they're hosting the "Testicle
Festival!" It was the first time Jill has had any balls in her
mouth, that I remember.......... me too? Damn that was hard to say, Missouri brings out the Hillbilly in you and the Testicle Festival
brought out the bikers. If you got a little hillbilly in you and have the
Testicles..... join us for SgtMacsBar Open House
