Military jail? Eep!

I wonder what they do with all those named golf balls... Bah, they fly well enough when smacked written on or not. It's be a lot easier to figure out which one is your ball.

"I think it's over here." golfer 1
"Naw, that one says Adam Smith, mines John Wilson II." golfer 2.

Can't wait to hear the "military jail" story

Bargoo-only experience I've had with fundraisers was at a private school where I taught a few years ago, they always have a HUGE rummage/garage/gym sale where everyone donates lightly used and nice items and all proceeds go to the school. It's a huge event-3 days-and the gym is always completely filled with items going for excellent prices. Keeps the place running and decreases the tuition for the students by a lot. Otherwise, what Gary said seems to work, as well

And, still, all those golf balls dropping just keeps making me think of the turkey drop episode of 'WKRP in Cincinnati' for some reason

Have a good one, everyone!!

I made a stroganoff with my BIG pan! It was exciting.

Almost as exciting as killing a thread. Almost. Now my big excitement is the anticipation of hearing Gary's stories!!!

Oh... My... Gosh.

Ladies and Gents, it's official.

I am having a week out of the twilight zone (and no, not the sparkly vamp version, ew!).

My work computer just let out a burning smell right after it snapped and popped like a set of firecrackers!!!

Luckily I wasn't typing on it at the moment, but I still almost jumped out of my skin!

Now I'm jumping whenever the phone rings, fearing that it'd be next!

I'd take the rest of the day off if there wasn't something I need to be packing, watching the Xerox guys, messing with trucks, dumping recycling, or entering into an available computer.

I'm thinking that I've got a less popular version of the Midas touch, everything mechanical I use lately is being unfriendly!

Ok already...my stories will turn out to be "not so much"....

Knucklehead nephew got back into town from Virginia last Monday....said he needed to report to the NAVY base here in San Diego by the 10th...he will stay with Angie and I on week-ends and with my daughter and sil during the week, since they live close to the base. Well my daughter texts me on Thursday and says pray for Knucklehead...he was supposed to report on the 3rd and is "shaking".....

I tried to get a hold of him...finally he calls back and says all is OK...there was a mix-up and he was not in trouble....he still had time to report but went to work anyway...which, according to him when he came by tonight on his way to the beach to surf, was a good deal...he says his new boss loves him for reporting early...

which is fine because I am gonna kill him for tracking sand all through my kitchen

plus I had to loan him $20 for gas so he could go watch his sister cheer for the last basketball game....aaarrrgggghhhh

GOLF ~ A little over 4 years ago we had a young man from church killed in Iraq He was an outstanding young man, a couple of years older than my son, and someone my son looked up to and a kid I admired for his kindness to not only my son but other kids at our church school. Each year since he passed away we have had a fundraiser golf tournament in his honor. This year will be the 5th one...we have raised over $40,000 and all that money has been given to kids in need for scholarships to attend our church school. I sponsor a 4-some each year which is usually my son and son in law and 2 of their friends....they then use the money they would normally pay to golf...$100 each...to buy tickets and stuff that goes back into the kitty...this year they are selling 500 golf balls which will be dumped on the first hole from a helicopter...the first ball that goes into the hole wins $500...or the closet to the hole. I bought 5 balls....

well kinda...I was talked into it 5 balls but had no cash...no problem, Angie was going down on Thursday to teach yoga...she can pay...well...tonight she tells me she thought it was $20 per ball...so she wrote a check for $100...instead of $50....

All I can say is Sunday is Valentine's Day...I better get paid back.....

Ya know, I just can't help enjoying myself. All I keep hearing about is nasty snow all over the east, but here in the Mtn. West we're just cruising along in pleasant weather. Dang I love El Nino.

Plants? We just got a dump of snow so no plants here. My amaryllis did come into bloom overnight though. It was nice to wake up to Valentine flowers. The dogs aren't much for cards and gifts on special days.

Tomorrow is Family Day here. To celebrate, my friend Holly is bringing over a box of six puppies, Jazz's half siblings. His daddy committed adultery with a charming Cairn terrier. Dogs have families too you know!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL! I'm hoping to go to the casino this afternoon and see if I can't win big (yeah right, playing the penny slots!) for my birthday! I've had lots of Birthday calls this morning which is nice. Got champagne chillin'. That should take the edge off of getting another year older!!

Take care everyone and have a great Sunday!!!
