March 2018 Newsletter
Around the Campfire
Wanda is down there with the Winter Texans having a fun time so Linda and I are the backup team for the newsletter. Us winter Nebraskans had a good St Patty’s Day dinner with a good turn out and Sharon even did corn beef & cabbage. Brent Phillips was there with his mom, Robin, and is selling raffle tickets for a real nice wood American Flag. He is raising funds for a Special Olympics trip to Seattle. Roy & Caroline sure know how to throw a good party.
President Dennis Gregory called the March 17, 2018 meeting to order at 7:00pm with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. Roll call had 10 rigs present and 2 guests.
Brent Phillip’s mom, Robin, gave a very interesting presentation on Special Olympics and Brent’s participation, the many awards he has won, and explained about his pending trip to Seattle. The sale of tickets for the flag is to raise the funds for the trip.
The minutes of the February meeting was read by Secretary, Sharon Gregory. There were no corrections. A motion was made by Bonita to accept as read and seconded by Carolyn. Motion carried.
Treasures report was given by Treasurer, Bob Boots. There were no bills this month. Motion was made by Karen to accept the report and seconded by Carolyn. Motion carried.
Old Business – We talked about the highway clean up and decided to forgo that at this time and stay with the can re-cycling as a fund resource. We need to think of other sources for revenue.
New Business – Jeannette reminded us that we need to make reservations for next month’s campout by April 1st. A motion was made by Carolyn and seconded by Lurleen to make a donation to Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy. Motion carried.
Thank you to our hosts Roy & Carolyn Austin.
Meeting Adjourned – Karen made a motion to adjourn and Bonita seconded. It was a unanimous vote.
50/50 was won by Charlene Manke and Sharon Gregory
Our next campout will be April 27th – 29th at Robidoux RV Park. Jim & Linda Vance are our hosts. We will have a pot luck at 12:00 noon with the business meeting immediately following. Come out for our first camping weekend of the year.
Birthdays and Anniversaries were announced last month.
All too rarely, airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight “safety lecture” and other
announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported.
1. On a flight with a very “senior” flight attendant crew the pilot said “ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort, and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants.”
2. On landing the stewardess said “There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways off this airplane.”
3. As the plane landed and was coming to a stop, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker, “Whoa big fella, WHOA!”
4. After a particularly rough landing during a thunderstorm, a flight attendant announced, “Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because after a landing like that, sure as h*&# everything has shifted.
5. “In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite.
That’s all for this month. I saw where the Roy Rogers Museum was closing and all of Roy and Dale’s memorabilia was auctioned off. It brought back a memory of one of my favorite childhood songs.
Happy trails to you – Until we Meet again
Linda and Jim
