Ok, I have seen some discussion of the mechanics of transaction fees, still not completely clear on those, but I wanted to straighten something out I was wondering about.  Assuming bitcoins deflate slightly, to the point where a 10,000 bitcoin transfer can be expected to generate a fee (which would be 5 bitcoins, if I understand correctly)  If I send 10K bitcoins to Bob, does that mean he receives 9995 and whoever processed the transaction receives 5?  Or does it mean that I am debited 10,005 and he receives 10k?

The sender pays the fee, so you would send out 10,005 BTC and the recipient gets 10,000. There's an article on this in the wiki:
