SHIP OF (16) FOOLS




Well, it felt like a ship with all the water splashing around us.

Rain or Shine the GOBAG people meet and eat… I know, I know, that rhymes.

Maybe we can say:

Rain or Shine the GOBAG people meet,
And eat,
And shoot the sheet.

It was pouring down rain all day today. I thought that surely the rain would let up by around 4pm… just in time for our meeting. The Lord will take care of us.

The Lord pulled a trick on us. The rain stopped shortly after we finished eating.

Chili was the menu. Delicious chili! Monty found another super recipe he duplicated and improved on. It had just enough spice and just enough meat, beans, and other juices.

As I mentioned it rained hard. Luckily for us, only 16 (give or take 1 or 2) showed up. If several more came some people would be pushed out in the open where it was bombarding rain by the buckets.

The plans are being planned for the upcoming Billy Joe Royal concert, which will probably be New Years Eve at the Strand Theater in downtown Marietta.

Y’all come.

Paul,
Beer, a full stomach of warm, and rejuvenating old memories on a weekly schedule - what more could anybody ask for? Well, probably plenty, to answer my own question - but once a week step out of the rat race and enjoy life as we used to know it.
Only now, there are no teachers keeping an eye on us to make sure we don't get too disgusting.

You're all retired and entitled to do what you want (well, within reason)... you've earned it.

No more authority like teachers, parents, etc. Hey, you can get as disgusting as you please, right!

Odd, isn't it ... now that we're entitled to be as disgusting as we want, we choose instead to behave.

That reminds me of a song, something like "An't Mis'behaving..."
