It was really great seeing that foursome from Stony Point, Hughie Dunne, John Maher, Bill Ryan and Ed Schoales out on a work release program and playing in the Golf Outing the only one missing was their Parole Officer Des Flanerty. These guys put a new meaning in the “Sprung Outing” and “Closest to the Pen”. They said they would have golfed better but their ankle bracelets were affecting their back swing.
Ran into Jack Madigan at Shoprite he was buying beer and his innuendo indicated that I was less than manly buying flowers. He must have had a pang of conscious because when my ex-friend was leaving he did say that my Lilac Shirt was very becoming and complimented my eyes. Shoprite, that’s the new meeting place for the boys in fact John Hornig has a coupon exchange setup at the Northeast corner of the frozen food aisle. In the cold weather you’ll find him closer to the bakery (geez maybe Madigan’s right about the flowers).
If you get a chance stop into the Pub and see Francis Duffy’s beautiful Teabag Display, Francis spared no expense they not the kind you get in the one star hash house these are the expensive flow thru teabags (but don’t check the expiration dates).
Our Social Director John Draper A.K.A. Nathan Detroit is putting together what could be the ultimate golf challenge. Participants will play nine holes in Tappan then shuttle to play nine holes in Broadacres then shuttle to Tappan for refreshments and I’m sure laughs. There will be Porto sans in route in both NY and NJ on either the last or first State depending on which (expletive delete) course you are coming from or going to (even I don’t know what I just wrote). There is a rumor that Nathan is contemplating an event next year where we ride the bumper cars in Coney Island and then helicopter to Hershey Park for the water slide. We must this guy a full time job.
Kudos for Tom Mallon, Rocco and crew for the installation of two new four-ton air condition units, the hall is so cold now we were thinking of converting the beer cold room into a confessional for visiting padres, tell me one guy who couldn’t use a trip to the box.
In addition a well done to Ray Lowry and Sean Sparow for updating the electrical system and you can now turn on the light in the men’s water closet without knocking off the TVs.
There must be something in the water in Carlow. John Lowry while working removing poison ivy at a friend’s home did not even get a watery eye while his assistant Carmel Reilly is on her fifth steroid treatment.
As of this writing Jim Fitzmaurice is on his 57th consecutive day of not buying Pete Dunne or McKeever a beer in the Pub. There is a very good chance that he will break Hughie Dunne’s record. Stay tuned the clock is running.
Please make an effort to support the Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society on June 18th and 19th even if you can’t participate you can always donate a few bucks for one of the teams; the particulars are posted in the Pub. In addition let’s see if we can get a few foursomes for the Michael McDermott Scholarship Golf Outing on July 1stguaranteed a great time for a great cause.
Say one for the troops, Larry McKeever
