news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Dick Enslow was born Jan 23, 1942 in Aurora, Ill., near the Fox River. He went to school in the Aurora area and received a BS in Industrial Engineering. Went to work for Allis Chalmers. Came to Denver in 1973 for a job offer in and was amazed at the weather. He went to work for Materials Handling, then he went into the reverse mortgage business several years ago but after being told they were going to train him at his expense, he retired.

Been married to Carol for 44 years (he stumble on that one). She did high school teaching, then computer sales then went to work for a travel company that got bought out by Delta. Great benefits. She last did student information systems for the Jeffco school district until she retired in April of last year.

Dick has two kids. His daughter Kedra who has given Dick his first grandchild. Son Brad is a couple years younger then his sister and is getting married this year. He plays two man sand volleyball “professionally” (about $100 a year).

Dick is currently serving as our Bingo chair.

Dick was drafted when he was 21 but since he had dislocated his shoulder in high school several times he was rejected at the physical, they never contacted him.

Dick has a gift from a college fraternity brother in a hunting accident. A Pheasant flew up between the 2 of them and Dick got most of the shot which is still there.

Was brought into the club by the honorable Bill Parchen and was President with a gold coat and through most chairs.

***************************************************

Program:   John Vierthaler filled in by starting up one of the 2 John Deer tractors he owns and told us all about raising grass hay (not Alfalfa) on some acreage he share crops. He is a share cropper so he can get all the tax benefits without any of the obligations (only a lawyer knows how to do this).

His 2 tractors are a 1968 and a 1980. He also owns many different implements for cutting, raking, bailing, stacking and hauling. He sells a lot of the hay but he also uses about 400 bails a year for his own horse. Since the land is dry land, he doesn’t get the output that irrigated land would produce but then again, he doesn’t have a lot of work because he only gets one crop instead of 3 or 4 per year.

************************

On my way to the mall, getting into a fight was the farthest thing from my mind. Wasn't even on the horizon ... I was in a great mood...and then I rear-ended a car.

So there we are, alongside the road and slowly the driver gets out of his car?.and you know how you just-get-sooo-stressed and life-stuff seems to get funny?

Yeah, well, I could NOT believe it...he was a DWARF!

He storms over to my car, looks up at me and says, 'I AM NOT HAPPY!'

So, I look down at him and say, 'Well, which one are you then?'

And that's when the frickin' fight started?..
