On Wed 29 June 2011 … the ole catfish were jumpin at Corky Bells

Hello CREW…Red rose 06-30-11

Yep! Party smile The ole  Catfish were jumpin!    Dinner at Corky Bells was fun!

Attendees: Clark True, George & Lois Reinhart, Bob & Diane Likon
Craig and Tammy Likon, Jane Likon, Greg Seitner,
Dan Shoemaker, Myrna Swindell  and ole B-T-B.
OBJECTION YOUR HONOR!   The Indian known as ole B-T-B  was not there!
“Sustained”!   The Court instructs the CREW to ignore that statement!
The Court will subpoena the ole Indian to determine if a Contempt of
Court charge is in order.  Bailiff issue a bench warrant for B-T-B! 

Thanks to Clark True for the REAL STORY !    Maybe all the rain, lightning and

thunder scared the ole Indian!  Or maybe he was attending a Side-Bar? lol
“Bill” elected as new Cherokee Principal Chief!  Winking smile
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. –   More than 15,000 Cherokee Nation citizens went to the
polls Saturday to select their leadership.    The results show Bill John Baker

On The Road: Hi to all –  We are on a cross country tour with another
couple in a R.V.  We went west for the first time Black HIlls, SD
Yellowstone National Park, Montana, Wyoming and on to Canada.
Fly out of Vancouver for Alaska a week and then back to Vancouver.
Pick up R.V. and head home. Long trip full of adventure.

The CREW luvs to hear about our classmate travels!  Keep us informed!
THE TRIAL: Good Grief! The 4th of July came early to the TRIAL,
Fireworks started early and continued through out the day.
By now everyone has an opinion but,  what will the Jury say?
Good News! Ann Driskill-Rudd will be moving back to the Cocoa area early
in July.  Hopefully she will be able to attend a future event!
Her classmates will be happy to welcome her back! 🙂
Remember a pre-nup! A recent article in the paper stated that the average

Our server Pete was exceptional!      Great Job!
A remembrance: Bobby Likon mentioned that this month marked three
years since his brother Ronnie passed.  He is missed by all.
A little humor: One of our CREW mentioned to me that it was a little
objectionable that we were going to a place that stated…
BRA no’s! Surprised smile Possibly we could go to a place that
stated  Pant no’s…     Good Grief!       What Next! Winking smile
Update: A phone call from Barbara Thomas informed the CREW that she
is in some pain but recovering from a recent fall which injured her knee.
Red rose Get well soon, we miss ya!
The TRIAL: Seems to be getting bogged down with forensic people.
Most of them from the FBI labs in Washington, DC
Holy Work Batman!  Who the heck is left up there to WORK!
Guess everyone wants to come to Fla to visit Disney World! lol
CREW, I might not be at the event next week!  Possibly I will be called
to testify for the JURY! WE ARE BORED TO DEATH!

There was a full moon over JDs on 6-15-2011

Hello CREW… Red rose 06-16-11

There was a full moon, but no one could see it!  Only a few “hardy”
CREW members braved the Storm cloud rainey night to travel to the JD’s event!
Food was good and server “Tavon” did her part to make the evening fun!

Attendees: Clark True, Greg Seitner, David Alexander, Susan Ellinor,
Bill Weinberg, ole  B-T-B and a long list of others too large
to reveal.  (wanna buy the Brooklyn Bridge?)

After the event, the ole Indian stayed around to experience the sting of
beer that comes after a few cold ones!  He was a little concerned that the
Cheerleaders from Dallas might return and  “Have their way with him”!
However, in order to keep the peace with the white-eyes… Ole Indians
will make what ever sacrifice is necessary!      (sorry the  Devil made me do it! )

Fathers Day Sunday: Don’t forget dear ole Dad this weekend!
Take him out for some Cold Beer and Hot Wings!
In case you know a bachelor…  Who me? take him along too!
Who know’s, he might want to try to be a Dad someday!

Bon Voyage! John & Sybil Dean left Wed in their Land Yacht for a trip to
the mid west.  They are in search of  cooler weather!
John promised me he would send some back!    (if they find it! lol)

Condolences from the CREW: Jerry Smith’s mother passed away this week.

THE TRIAL: Whether or not you think she is guilty, the trial has been very
educational!   The term “side-bar” has new meaning to me!
And I won’t show anybody… anything…  unless I have…
Permission to publish your Honor?  lol
Hummmm Does anyone know where “Zanny the Nanny” might be? lmao!
Maybe the CREW should visit the FUSION bar to look for her?

A STAR is shining! In case you could not view this one on Face Book,
check out classmate Conrad Koch providing some
vocal at a local Boys and Girls Club at a Fund Raiser
in New Hampshire, called Broadway Showcase.

JD’s the Place To Be 15 June 2011

Hello CREW… Red rose 06-12-11

The last event:
As mentioned in the  CREW REVIEW 06-08-11 a really strange
thing took place later that evening!   A vote had been taken for the
next event location while at Longhorn’s…         BUT!
After leaving Longhorn’s ole B-T-B moseyed over to JD’s Sports Bar
in Rockledge to have some  fire-water & possibly some conversation
with one of the cute squaws that stop by for blanket weaving classes! Wink

Well while there, a posse of  Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders reined
up and stormed thru the front door.  They immediately spied the
ole Indian and proceeded to “rough him up”! A horrible ordeal!
After what seemed to be hours of shear terror, he finally agreed…
(or he would have been tared’n’feathered)      that the:

The TRIAL: A Tribal Counsel recently determined that…
Casey Anthony has two chances…  slim and NONE!
( unless the Spirits in the Sky perform a miracle!  )

Make Betsy Ross proud: Tuesday, June 14th is Flag Day!

Beware… Wed, June 15th there will be a FULL MOON! Vampire bat
Have your garlic, wooden stakes and silver bullets handy!
If you come to JD’s…  Don’t be afraid of the Indians.  :-))

Pandas are People too aren’t they? Cute images after Japan’s Earthquake

Pandas after the earthquake.

The earthquake was right in the area

Where giant pandas live.

Most pandas in this area were rescued.

Particular attention was given to the

Babies..  All the pandas were scared.

The photos were taken right after

Earthquake and during rescue effort.

All the pandas were released back

Into the wild and it was noted that

All of the bears stayed together.

People rescuing pandas

Giving them milk-

After meal

Look at these babies!

Staying here maybe safer…

I don’t want a shot!

You scared me!

These pictures are too cute not to share.
