We are airborne and intel is currently being transmitted to HQ. My ride might not be as impressive as Blackhorse's, but she gets the job done:

Mayday! Mayday! Returning to base following release of payload and spied two ominous smoking craters smack in the center of the runway. Opted not to land and initiated evasive maneuvers. Hoping this is just some sort of diversionary strike by agents unknown and not a precursor to a full-on assault, but rather than risk being caught with my bag around my ankles I'm going to put down in a field far from HQ and wait it out. Initiating radio silence through the Target Date, as I have reason to believe I am either the victim of a disinformation campaign or my communications have been compromised. (Also, tomorrow I'm going to the beach!)

Will resume communications when I attempt a return to base Friday...and if I don't make it, avenge me.

Oh FINE!  Now you guys have gone and mucked up USPS’s tracking system. Way to GO.

That’s gotta take quite the shock wave.

Ordinance seems to have hit the target according to intel. Waiting for a damage report now and a confirmation...

Looks like the target was obliterated resulting in communications being neutralized as collateral damage!

Suspect

...I'm hit, boys and lasses, hit real bad. Attempted to return to base this morning but sustained fire before I even reached altitude. Smoke and thunder all the way home, crash landed on the moonscape what used to be the runway...but there was yet worse to come, strafing run after strafing run as I crawled out of the cockpit, weaving serpentine through the haze toward the fume-cloaked bulk of HQ...all to find it a shambles, nothing left, as if smote by the fist of some rogue titan who escaped the wrath of Jove.

Currently hunkered down in a drainage ditch with my radio, waiting for dark to chance a dash for the treeline. If I last the night on the morrow I will submit photographic evidence of the carnage--I hear the damnable droning of another wave, growing louder and louder; must go silent lest this frequency be compromised. More anon...fates willing.

My my, he does go on don’t he? He never knew we had his place wired. Sounds like he was just right here. I’m gonna land and check his place and that ditch.

Hey...wait...THERE HE IS! Blackhorse to all incoming pilots...get ‘em boys! Don’t let ‘em get away!

Much high jinks in the mess last night and celebratory drinky poos. We all raised our glasses to the target, toasted the King, and in time honoured tradition, set fire to the piano.

HUSSAH  cheers

Just when I thought it was safe to step outside....... 5) SHRAPNEL!!!  Very Happy

Some fine tobacco War Horse Bar, Peretti No. 8 Slice & Fader's Barking Dog (all new to me), a GBD billiard with a saddle stem, a Norwegian metal band coozie and a sticker for Dim Shores Press!  

Happy to see that the hi-jinks is continuing here & many thanks to this most gracious bomber. Always remember though, payback's a b&tch. Wink

PS - War Horse Bar smells powerful!  drunken

Looking at the devastation all around me, there's no two ways about it--I've been bombed.



Finally let out of the field hospital long enough to take stock of the scope of the devastation. Here is the wrack and ruin ye have wrought:



Loot:
-Firebird Folding Knife
-Doctor's Pocket Knife (to go with the JKP!)
-MM Cob
-Mount Royal Saddle Billiard
-2 Presumably Handmade Pipes (very curious about these as they came from different bombers but are of similar style...)
-Homemade Teriyaki Beef Jerky
-Lots o' Pipe Cleaners (you can never have too many!)
-Roll on Like the Tide CD from our very own Rande Reed!




-C&D Star of the East Flake
-Erinmore Flake
-Dunhill Flake
-MB H&H Old Dark Fired
-GLP Jack Knife Plug
-McClelland Dominican Glory Maduro (circa 1998!)

Bulk:
-Blackhorse Burley Blend (Uhle derived)
-Ozark Wizard All Things Being Equal Blend (a krumble rope of sorts that resembles a candy bar)
-Just For Him Middle-Earth Blends Sampler
-C&D Night Train
-C&D 3 Friars
-GH&Co. Grasmere Flake
-GH&Co. Kendal Dark
-GH&Co. Sweet Maple Twist
-GH&Co. Whiskey Twist
-Jar of Semois (circa 2014)
-Jar of McClelland Dark Navy Flake (circa 2008!)

So much good stuff here I don't know where to begin--thank y'all so much for your thoughtfulness and generosity! I greatly appreciate the obvious care that went into selecting all these great gifts and plan to enjoy them all thoroughly. Having been a part of the BoB Bombers back in the beginning it's so satisfying to see it carrying on even after all these years, even as the sting of being it's target brings a tear to my eye. Thank you all again, and very much looking forward to next month when some more deserving schmuck gets to experience the horrors of our lovely horde. Cheers!
