Captain’s Log: Holiday 2016

Well winter has descended upon the Great White North. We have 8 inches of snow already on the ground, single digit (old school Fahrenheit) temperatures with wind chills dropping that into the negatives – and a blizzard forecasted to start within the hour bring another half foot or more before daybreak. To quote some psychopath, “It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!” ‘ELL NO it isn’t, my vision of Christmas is me, Nog’n’Morgan in hand, sittin’ in a bamboo chair on the beach under a decorated palm tree!

The Club’s bowling night toy drive for the Inn was again a success, and truly a family event this time around with the youngsters coming out in record numbers for the event, and just so everybody knows, I’d of had a near perfect game if you suckers hadn’t switched out my ball on me. You thought I would notice my pink ball sudden became lime green, well I did – took five frames BUT I knew something was off, (but I was positive it was the lack of lime in my Corona that was causing my sudden hooking)!

Next I’d like to thank all the folks who came out to Lady Di and I’s Club Christmas party. A good time was had by all who attended and a number of thank you’s are in order. First to anybody who brought a dish, next to Treasurer Lisa and her daughter Megan for the help in the prep department. Her husband (and Club MAL) Rob for the use of his BBQ to supplement our’s, John H. for again picking up the tongs and taking on the cooking duties, this time sharing the duties with new comer (but old Q pro) Mike S. Thanks to our ‘Mercan crew for coming out, Mr. BB in particular for helping with “ginsu’ing” the steak and chicken for the fajita’s, and especially to Mrs. BB for “importing” Labatt’s Blue Light Lime beer to stock the Q cooler! Doc Phlockerson for again providing us with his Mexican lasagna casserole, but dang dude you gotta go easy on that Ghost pepper powder that batch was feakin’ HOT!!!!! Lastly thanks to Mother Nature for not raining (as the weatherman was predicting) and allowing us to par-tA in the driveway and Tailgate outta Rob’s garage bar, and I truly mean tailgate – he has a bar made outta the last foot and an half of a Chev truck box, complete with tailgate!

Well my glass of Captain is down to the cubes, so it’s time to wrap up this month’s ramble by wishing each and every one of you and your’s, a safe and Merry Christmas,  and best wishes for a Happy New Year.

“Away to the window I flew like a flash, nearly spilt my drink and threw up the sash – and found it was feakin’ snowin’ a’gin!!!!!”

Your prez – Denny
