Well guys, here's my first and last dinner pic. Had to celebrate the last of the venison. Grilled backstrap, smashed taters, crowder peas, mixed vegies, fresh radishes from my garden, and a fine glass of Rabbit Ridge merlot. Colt Gold Cup .45ACP, handmade knife by a friend. No napkin needed, I'm single and have a sleeve. No stupid tape measure. Whadda you think? [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=12238[/img]

I would guess it's because he eats off of pink plates. -Nuke

Nope, the plates were purchased by the ex-wife. It is about all she left me. Being a guy, I don't care what color they are.

Very nice! But why the last dinner pic? (edited because my question was answered in the above post)

Please tell us that you did not pay good money for a pink plate! It was a hand-me-down that your Mom wanted to get rid of, right?

They always forget the stapler.

The pink highlights reflecting off the gun look pretty.

No problem. As my (former) friend TomJefferson points out, looking at my picture, it obvious that I eat every day.[:)]

Man dont rag on the "china." That is some valuable stuff if it is origional. Fiesta Ware. We have the complete set (made back in the .50s) and we came to find out it is quite valuable. The Cobalt Blue stuff is especially valuable cause they used cobalt in the pigments -- sets off the gieger counters. Do not rag on the pink plate. Thats a fine looking 1911 btw

This is what I love about this site. Who wouldda thought that someone on a gun board would recognize Fiesta Ware? And thanks. The Gold Cup shoots just like you would expect. One ragged hole if I do my part.

Everythings cool except the pink plate. Fiesta Ware? Is there a Barbie face on the back?

The plate looks ceramic...possibly Frankoma, but I don't think they ever used such a eyeburning pink glaze (though they did do a Terra Cotta Rose that is bright pink..don't have a ref book handy) & the pattern doesn't look familiar. McCoy possibly? It's disgusting how much I've learned by osmosis about ceramic dinnerware just by my P&M being collectors. BTW, the knife handle *looks* to be celluloid, probably the same vintage as the plate if not older. The neat plate & knife make up for the lack of tape measure or stapler.....[;D] egad, I'm not the only goof who payed more attention to the damn plate.

Belfry_Express is correct....the pretty pink plate is Fiesta Ware, while surfing a collector site they had this exact style plate in the Fiesta Ware section. If I ever get set up to host pix (& I actually cook something...) I'll be sure to have the vittles on some of my Woodland Moss colored Frankoma plates, along with my 50's style anodized aluminum drinking cups & celluloid handled knives & forks....[BD][:E][%|] And I won't forget the tape measure or stapler....[;D]

For those of us who have not followed all of these dinner pics--what in the hell is the stapler for? The tape measure, yeah, but stapler?

It is a simple matter of drawing the line in the sand. Dinner pics should consist of: 1. Meal 2. Firearm 3. Knife That's it. The addition of the ruler and/or stapler, or anything else, is crossing the line. We must put our collective foot down. It has to end somewhere.

Even though I was being a smart-ass, who started the whole tape measure/stapler bit anyways? I agree, left unchecked this trend could snowball into yard tools, cordless drills & other power tools, Zuni fetish dolls, etc.....

Point being--I can see how this dinner pic thing evolved or devolved into a dick measuring contest--requiring tapes. But the stapler doesn't make any sense to me. What? Staple your nutsack to the edge of the table would prove you more manly than all the rest? Curious minds would like to know.

These guys got it all wrong. Staplers are for BREAKFAST pics. Dinner pics don't require it.
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 4:40:10 PM EDT
Not a big veggie person here but it looks very nice. I wouldn't rag on your plates either.. Hubby has some odd aztec lookin crap we don't use. But hey..if you ever wanna borrow it I've got a nice turtle one my daughter uses. [:)] Very sturdy surprisingly...hehe. Better to have a plate I say than to see such a nice meal on a paper one. Might I suggest perhaps the firearm pointing almost directly across the table is why women are afraid to eat with you?

Thanks, HeldHostage. The only valuable piece of advice I've gotten so far. I'll point my gun elsewhere. Thanks.

Not to be a sea lawyer but "breakfast" & "dinner" might need to be qualified. I never eat typical "breakfast" food for breakfast. Eggs, bacon, cold cereal, oatmeal etc I usually eat later in the day while watching primetime TV/late night after being out all evening. First food in the morning usually entails reheated leftovers from the night before...steak, burgers etc. So, if I cook up a Denver omelette & hashbrowns to eat in the early evening, do I include a stapler or tape measure in my pic? [:D]

No, I believe that unless you slept all day, and the eggs/sausage meal you're eating in the early evening is the first meal after waking up, then it is still dinner, thus no stapler required. Might need to get ETH in on this one....[8D]
