QUOTE OF THE WEEK: 9-4-12 And other things

"How can you say luck and chance are the same thing? Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterwards."
--Amy Tan, American writer

Hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend. Ours was pretty quiet. We did take an afternoon to go to Lakeside Amusement Park. This park has been around for almost 90 years or more. I haven't been to it since I was like 17. It seems much smaller now than it did from when I was a kid. Kathi rode the ferris wheel for the first time in her life. She said that it didn't look to big, and it didn't look like it was that high. Well, that changed when we got on and they stopped it at the top. I have fingernail marks on my wrist to prove it. Or it might have been from my rocking the car just a little bit. After about 4 hours or so, we were done. I noticed that on some of the rides I didn't have as much leg room as I did years ago.

My friend Bob and his wife made it to Denver, and their son's wedding was on the 2nd. We will get together with them on Thursday evening for dinner.

I'm also going to see about a jjjjjjjjob this week. Could use some extra income, as we all probably could. So cross your fingers and toes.

Also, we are still working on raising some money for my friend Bob. We have enough for me to shave my head, which I will do as soon as Bob leaves town. He does not know what we are all doing, and that would tip him off. We are also almost to the level for me to wax the top half. Trying to find a thong has been a bit of a challenge. But, we will make it work. So please keep on passing the word around. And to those of you who have already helped in some way, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Those of you who want to see a guy get his head shaved, body waxed, and in a thong? Donate and ask others to do the same. Again, a huge thanks to those who already have. It's for a good cause. I haven't done anything crazy like this in years. You can ask my wife. Really, you can!
