    Ok, only one guest and it seems maybe Scotty doesn't know who died on Lake Weir. A little History lesson on a old Americana criminal history.

    Ma Barker died with Freddie, her son, in a famous four-hour shoot-out with the FBI at a hideout cottage in Florida on Jan. 16, 1935 in Lake Weir. Ma was manning a machine gun and ended up with one to three fatal bullets in her, according to various accounts. That's the FBI and Hollywood story. The counterversion has Ma stopping only one bullet--compared to Freddie's 14--and then committing suicide, while an embarrassed FBI took it from there. George Barker, who had left the family around 1927, buried Ma and Freddie in Welch, Okla. Of his wife and sons Barker later said: "She never would let me do with them what I wanted to."

    History lesson over.

    And for you northerners out there. Here in Florida right now, 10 PM, it is 32º [​IMG] Please stop blowing that cold down this way. Vlap, Scotty and I are going to have to wear long pants and shirts tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I had a brain fart at that moment... and don't call me nice dammit! [​IMG]

    On a different note, the wife and I are thinking about making a trip down there in a month or two. Her folks live in The Villages (between Ocala and Orlando)... they are overdue for our intrusion... more on that as details unfold.

    Well, when you were in Cedar Key, I was only 20 minutes away. [​IMG]
    Not sure how the food was in Frogs, but next time hit the downstair bar in Seabreeze. Great food down there. Hamburgers are great and the grouper sandwhich will cover the plate. [​IMG]

    Well, my first one. Family history, so I was due. I was watching the good looking nurse put on her scrubs, heard the doc and turned to say hi!! Then heard the head nurse say, "the good stuff is rolling." Turned back to watch the cute nurse and figured I would shut my eyes and wait till the doc came over to talk to me. When I opened my eyes, there was my wife. [​IMG] "What are you doing here, are you going to watch?" [​IMG]
    Didn't realize I was in the recovery room. [​IMG] Never felt a thing.

    I took alot of ribbing over on the Florida Sportsman forum, especially from one member. I told them I had to have a polyp removed and provided them with a photo.



    [​IMG] That's Capt Ed's head representing the Polyp.
