news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Jack Marshall told us about his life which started out April 17, 1957, 2 days before the tax deadline for his dad. Born in Denver, lived in Virginia and Maryland because dad was in Army Air Corp, and returned to Littleton in 68 and graduated from Littleton High. In 1975, he joined the Air Force as a weapons specialist on a bomber and served in England. He served 4 years. When he returned to the state, he got off the plane in Myrtle Beach, SC. and the heat and humidity about knocked him over.

Jack was discharged in 1979 as a Sergeant, and tried being an electrician but got zapped so many times, he decided to change career paths. He went to ACC for architectural technology and ended up with a scholarship to a school in Kansas but bought a house here and started attending CU but didn't graduate. He learned enough from his dad to help him pass the tests.

Jack met his wife, Marcia, who was from NE and they were married in Jan of 1987. It was a short courtship and at least 9 months after they were married, his daughter was born in Oct. (something about being snowed in was mentioned).

Jack's father and others, such as Bill Parchen, brought him into the club. He figured after 10 years in Kiwanis and 9 of those years in a position of office and 4 of those as the President, Sertoma wouldn't be bad but it didn't take long before he started through the chairs and made it to the top.

Jack said he once sat on LBJ’s bed at the White House and played with LBJ’s dog. He also mentioned he took the Enslow School of Speed Reading and Speaking.

I knew someone would find a name for our election process for this year.

Electile Dysfunction : The inability to become aroused over any of the choices for President put forth by either party in the 2008 election year.


On the first day, God created the dog and said:

'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?'

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:

'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'

But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service
