The Sheriff just stopped by. He pulled up to the RV and called out “I want to talk to you about some goings on the porch last night. You’re my only possible credible witness”.



I ain’t got time to tell the story now but it involves Big Hat Dave swinging from the rafters of the smoke shack, a parolee, a knife, a bunch of tourists, and yours truly standing empty handed in the ghost town parking lot.

Carol’s gig starts in a couple of hours and I gotta start drinkin’ soon.

More to follow

A couple of days ago I was hanging on the porch when things started to get strange.

First off the wind picked up. It seemed to spring out of nowhere. Dirt and rocks were blowing sideways in from Mexico. I was huddled up in a corner with a bunch of tourists.

In the middle of the parking lot is an old adobe building which is often used for nefarious purposes. It is known as the “Smoke Shack“. I had stopped by and took note of a guy I hadn’t seen before. He was seated at the picnic table with a half empty bottle of Crown Royal in front of him. He was in his mid thirties, tattooed and wiry. He had that crazed look in his eye.

He started to rap about just getting out of prison, all the money he has been making “slinging dope”, that the truck he was driving was stolen and generally what a bad ass he was.

On the table in front of him he had opened a wicked Kershaw folder and stuck it deep into the wood top.

Well I’m no genius but I could see trouble brewing and thought I’d better avoid this FNG.

I returned to the porch and the tourists. A few minutes pass when I witnessed this…

I looked towards the smoke shack and see Big Hat Dave standing on the table. I can’t see all the way into the adobe building and I kind of laughed and assumed someone was getting a table dance. Within seconds I see the Kershaw knife come flying out. I hear yelling and knew something was wrong. I went down to investigate.

I often have either a 9mm or .38 caliber gun with me. Not today, fuck me I left it back at the trailer.

I close the distance and find Big Hat Dave squared off with the FNG telling him, “Get the fuck out, it’s over. GO NOW”. I stood behind Dave and told the dude, “You heard him, get”. Several other men were in the shack but only Dave and I were confronting the FNG.

After some jaw jackin’ the FNG starts to head for his truck. I laid back to allow him the space to retreat and leave, I was about 20 yards from him and his truck. Well, once FNG gets to his truck he really starts to cussing and puffing up. By this time I’d had enough of his shit and advanced towards him with the intent of getting a little more “hands on”.

He saw me coming. I was within 6 feet of him when he reached under his front seat, as if going for a gun, and said to me, “I’ll shoot all of you mother fuckers”.

I froze in place standing empty handed in the middle of the parking lot without either cover or concealment. I was calm but my mind was chewing on the possibilities - Is he bluffing or does he really have a gun? Was I prepared to bet my life on the fact he didn't have a gun?

Decision, decisions...

Seconds passed between the FNG and I - a Mexican stand off in Texas.

Big Hat Dave came up behind me and touched my shoulder. He whispered in my ear, “Mike I think he has a gun, just back up”. I walked backwards towards the porch keeping an eye on the FNG. He glared more and kept his hand under the seat. I asked the tourists on the porch if anyone had a gun I could borrow. They were unaware of what was going down and laughed. I was serious.

After a couple of minutes FNG fired up his truck and left.

I later learned that what I thought was a table dance was Big Hat kicking the knife from FNG’s hand after he tried to stab skinny Mike. Mike had called the FNG a fucking pussy and that set him off. The FNG had also taken a couple of knife swings at Big Hat too.

That was the end of that. I haven’t seen the FNG since. When Deputy Paul interviewed me I did tell him if and when I find the FNG I’ll have a few things to say to him and that I will assume he is armed.

The FNG should be careful. Terlingua is a town where vigilante justice waits just under the surface.

Rat, you know never to leave home with out protection.....
Glad it all turned out Ok but the FNG would be wise to keep on driving away from Terlingua. The desert is a realy really big desolate place and many a ahole has been turned into fertilizer.
