A Night With The Elks

I went to my first meeting with the local Elks lodge last night. It is a small group of folks that are trying to do a lot of good for the community and I have to give them my respect for that. They focus on kids and Vets, two very well deserved causes.

The meeting didn’t last as long as I thought it would. They kept it up beat and interesting. I just might have to join them after all. It’s all good!

Five Dollar Foot Longs

Subway has always been one of my favorite places to get a good sub. Now since they expanded their menu to include even more of their foot long subs to be purchased for $5 the joint seems to be much busier each time I go there. Hey a good deal is a good deal and I say “Go For It!”

We Got Rain!

After suffering for so long without a single rain drop, with the threat of rationing looming around us, I’m pleased to see that we are finally getting a nice steady rain fall today. People like me that have planted gardens have been resorting to using our garden hoses and racking up a high water bill, which really bites.

Old Folks

A little old guy is walking around in a supermarket calling out, Crisco, Crissssssscoooo!’

Soon an assistant manager approaches and says, ‘Sir, the Crisco is in aisle 3.’

The old guy replies, ‘Oh, I’m not looking for the cooking oil. I’m calling my wife. She’s in here somewhere’

The clerk is astonished.

‘Your wife’s name is Crisco?’

The old guy answers, ‘Oh no, no, no. I only call her that when we’re out in public.’

‘I see,’ said the clerk.

‘What do you call her at home?’

‘Lard ass.’

You gotta love old people!!!

World Cup on TV

Having grown up in a very small, country town, I had never really paid any attention to Soccer. No one played soccer where I was from. It wasn’t a school sport, and there wasn’t even a league that kids could join to play. I was never interested in watching the game & really didn’t understand how people could watch such a “boring” sport. That all changed when I was in college in California and became friends with some people from Greece who loved to watch direct tv international packages in california. They could not understand my lack of interest in their absolute favorite sport. After watching the World Cup with them, I realized how enjoyable soccer was to watch, once you really got into it.

To this day, four years later, I still enjoy watching soccer on TV. Watching a good soccer game at a sports bar, full of other soccer fans is one of the most exciting times in sports to me. With so many people that are so passionate and fanatic about soccer, it’s hard to not get excited about what is going on. The atmosphere around the sport is like no other. I recently started watching the 2010 World Cup on my satellite TV and I still enjoy it today just as much as I did with my fanatic friends four years ago.
