We started a short bowling summer league last week. We will only go for six weeks! It’s on Wednesday nights at 7:00, so it breaks up the week for the ones that want to get out and about!!
I’ve got raccoon problems at the Standaert House!! I’ve tried live traps but this fella must be a really smart raccoon!!! Marshmallows are gone every morning but he doesn’t set off the trap! Any ideas out there??? Let me know!
FYI: We’re having a Birthday Bash this coming Friday night from 7:00-10:00 at the Ol’ Rockpile!!! We’re featuring Mark Stary. He’s a great musician and plays a great variety of music!! Come join the party!!!

Bless Your Heart
Two ladies happened to start up a conversion while waiting in the Los Angeles airport.
The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man. The second lady was a well-mannered elderly Wyoming rancher’s wife.
Eventually the conversation centered on children. The California woman started by saying, “When my first child was born my husband built a beautiful mansion for me.” The lady from Wyoming commented, “Well, bless your heart.”
The first woman continued, “When my second child was born, my husband bought the most expensive Cadillac Escalade for me” and the lady from Wyoming interrupted and said, “Well, bless your heart.”
The first woman continued boasting, “Then when my third baby was born, my husband bought this exquisite diamond bracelet for me.” Yet again the Wyoming lady commented, “Well, bless your heart.”
The California lady asked, “What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?”
“My husband sent me to charm school,” the rancher’s wife declared.
“Charm school?” the first woman cried. “Oh, my gosh! What on earth for?”
The Wyoming woman responded, “Well for example, instead of saying, ‘Who gives a darn?’ I learned to say, ‘Well, bless your heart.’ ”
A Thought to Ponder: If walls and guns don’t work, then why are celebrities and politicians surrounded by them??.
