Guests:  n/a

Fines:    Tommy Fry was twice burned. First, for shirking his duty and not displaying the club banner, and second for sneaking in a posh comfy chair while others were confined to the regular folding chairs.
Tommy did collect a couple of quarters from tardy members. His batting average was low since as many as 6 to 8 members slipped in on the QT.
OOOPS! President Ken did not provide a “quote of the week,” did we miss an opportunity to level a fine?

Announcements:  Bob Buckland reminded us of the scuba tank and aquarium outing on Sept.-13th.This will involve patients from Craig with severe physical limitations. On that date there will be no club meeting. We will meet at our regular location, have lunch at 1:00PM and move as a group to the scuba presentation then on to the aquarium.

Jim Rees has King Soopers coupons. The club receives 5% but only 4 people regularly use the service. The card is like a debit card so it’s easy to use.


SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:  usarmy.gif

Dick Johnson: Born in small town Tennessee. At the age of five his family moved to a farming community in Iowa. At age 9 he was so bored his dad built him his own special golf cart to roam around the farm area. Dick said there was nothing to see or do in his piece of Iowa so maybe the cart kind of put things on fast forward so days and years there didn’t seem as long to him.

He moved to Denver when his sweetheart decided she was coming here to attend nursing school. Meanwhile Dick became a King Soopers’ grocery man. Later he did a tour of duty with the Army – apparently non-combat.
He said his last three months were the best as his duty involve performing medical checkups on the professional ladies of the evening along our southern border. Way to go – Helping keep our soldiers safe!.

Dick and his sweetheart did marry and have been blessed with two sons and a daughter. Other notes:
He must claim Iowa as home because he listed the Mississippi as his river. His High School still stands although it has been demoted to a grade school. He has also spent time Coaching Softball

There is an interesting article that I recommend you read.  Go to  Two lessons here:

      1. The extent of senior exploitation, which is much greater than most realize.

      2. The serious problem with our social security numbers. 


A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into  the lion's cage. 
Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. 

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her
 to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. 
A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.' 

The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.' 

The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page...

So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?' 

The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.' 

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

That pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days
