A daily dose of Jack Handy’s Deep thoughts have been added to the right hand column towards the bottom, enjoy.
The Bengals, yes, the Cincinnati Bengals are 3-0. No, not Thirty, but 3-0. Three Wins, and Zero losses. Unbelievable.
Granted, the beat Cleveland, any high school team can do that. They beat Minnesota, which as it turns out isn’t really very good, and now the Bears, who’s offense is extremely suspect, but has a pretty good defense. Even so, it’s the Bengals we’re talking about here, and I even watched half the game. With my wife in a sports bar! Hows that for hell freezing over? In 16 years of marriage, that’s never happened. Pinch me see if I’m dreaming.
And to top it all off I was finally allowed to replace my decrepit old office chair.
What a bargain:
I’ve been looking at this at Costco for about 8 months now and today was my lucky day. This baby is leather, real leather, and comfy too.
Today I played in the Countryside YMCA Golf outing as I have done the last couple years.
It’s a great outing for a great cause. The Y is one of the largest if not the largest in the US. The Golf outing benefits their scholarship and learn to swim programs. I know that their two top double-eagle sponsors each donated or were responsible for bringing in over $20k each. But that’s not what I’m hear to write about.
The YMCA is a customer of my fathers company Duplicator Sales Co. so I get to play in his foursome. Every year we play with absolutely no hopes of winning. There are always a couple foursome’s of ringers. But we have a great time. The beer is cold and free.
The Y outing always has a door prize for every participant, and they usually have a few decent raffle prizes too. For a $20 donation you get as many raffle tickets as your arms are long, in my case that was 35.
My door prize was a Tiger Woods wall plaque thing and two free buckets of balls at the Golf Ranch. Something I can use. However my big raffle prize was get this…
A $150 gift certificate for plastic surgery. Or Micro electro-epi-facial-skin peeling or something like that, for me and a friend. Now what the heck am I going to do with that? One year I won a basket of shampoos and hand creams, but I traded that with Bernie for something else. I think golf outings he couldn’t use or something.
Now I’m not against feminine gifts, but there were only 4 women golfers out of 26 foursomes, and it seemed to me there were an awful lot of girly gifts.
I think they need to work on their gift recruitment. We golfers don’t need to bring something home to our wives that bad, and I certainly don’t need to bring her a $150 gift certificate for plastic surgery! That’s a dangerous message there.
