Benton gave us an update on Mabe. He is recovering from surgery last night. He has a tumor in his pancreas. He must be doing okay, he is entertaining the staff with magic tricks. He tried to old trick of putting apple juice in a specimen bottle, then drinking it but the nurse had already heard that one. (I wonder if they have fed him chicken yet).

news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: 

Dick Laskey, born August 15, 1948 in Detroit, MI (so were two other members of the club). Attended Catholic schools, then on to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. where he graduated in 1970 in accounting. Dick worked in Detroit for 2 years, was certified and decided it just wasn’t safe in Detroit. He flew out to Denver for a job interview in Feb of 1973, where it was sunny and 50 °, fell in love with the area and went back home and sold his house for $16,000. He paid $16,500 a year earlier (he’s a CPA huh?). After moving to Denver, he worked at a couple locations before deciding to work out of his own house.

Dick joined the club in 1980 when Sam Anderson was the president and was brought into the club by Walt Erwin Dick has held most offices at least once, including President in 1986-87 and bingo captain for ever. He has been married to Linda since 1971 and they have one daughter and one son and 2 grandkids. Just about everyone in his family are bean counters.

Dick had no military, his lottery number was 89 but after he got the notice, he saw a Dr. for a sore foot and was declared 4F. The river was the Detroit (when it wasn’t on fire from pollution). The apartments he moved into when coming to the Littleton area were built by a past member, Bill Storey.


Program:   No program this week but starting next week, we should have a full slate.

Subject: Test

Here's a one-question IQ Test to help you decide how you should spend the rest of your day......

There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth, he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Now, if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?
Think about it first before scrolling down for the answer...

He opens his mouth and says. 'I would like to buy a pair of Sunglasses.'

If you got this wrong, please turn off your computer and call it a day.
I've got mine shutting down right now.

(You know you missed it too, so shut down your computer)


One more:

An Alabama preacher said to his congregation, "Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate.

I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this. Now, I want the party who did this to stand and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian Family."

No one moved. The preacher continued, "Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression." Again all was quiet.

Then slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde with a body that would stop traffic rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quivered as she spoke, "Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets."

The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the congregation roared.
