what happened to the dinosaurs!"
Allerheiligen recently bragged that he
celebrated the "30th anniversary of his 37th
so he had a check for $30.00. Makes
sense to me.
Carl Glaser recently had a $5 brag, because
his son, Adam is now the LEAD BREWER at Fort

reason to have kids!!!
Brad Burns had a $20 brag 'cause he's walking

had) because he "got to eat lunch with us
today". Hear, Hear!
Jim Manning had a
brag for Bradford Albert (see above)
congratulating him on his new wife, Lori.
Seems he, Ed Caffrey, and their wives
attended the ceremony two Saturdays ago,
officiated by Dan Kaup. Brad is a
married man again!!
told us we recently received a nice "Thank You"
letter from Christy French thanking us for our
usual donation of $2,500 to Abby's Concert Series.
They always multiply this money by a factor of 10,
but this year over $42,000 was raised to benefit
Respite Care and Pathways Hospice.
J. Blomberg received a (belated) letter from
Sertoma saying he had received 2011-12
"Presidential Growth Incentive", becoming a
"second century recruiter". He also received
a Presidential Growth Award. Picture not
Green was officially welcomed to Sertoma with a
new-member welcome packet.
The bumper sticker IS mandatory, Bill.
Bernecker, our V.P. Projects guy, reported that
"we", as a club, contributed 683 hours "in the
football side of things", and 1273 hours in
community contributory hours in working at
Crossroads Safehouse, Realities for Children, etc.
This makes for a grand total of 1,956 HOURS!!!!
only that, but he figured out that we earned an
average of $33/hr. WOW!!
(the Enforcer) thanked everyone who paid their
dues already 'cause we can really use the money.
He also said
for those who haven't paid yet, he's easy to
MOVING DAY at Colorado
This isn't even
everyone who came! E. Scott was a huge help,
and Mr. Miller provided a MOVING TRUCK!! I
know there were others as well, but they've gotten
off without recognition.
If you ever need
something HEAVY moved, these are the guys
for the job!
Almost half a ton of roaster, and we just
rolled it out!
Some eggs are
needed to go with this ham!
'till the bitter end!
Everyone seems to be
wondering why Muslim terrorists
are so quick to commit suicide.

Nathan Weinland told us that if you
would like to go with the other 29
Sertomans who have signed up to go to
Cirque du Soleil's performance this year
on Feb. 3rd, you'd better hurry!
Several seats ARE left in the
Sertoma Area (in the right field
bleachers, behind the 18'-round light
pole), and he will be buying them next
week. $56.50. Call him!
We had a "cool" project for Crossroads
Safehouse on Wednesday. Cliff
reported that about a half dozen guys
the airport to gather 22 doors to take
to CS to make shelving. This
upcoming Wednesday (the 18th) we will
cut these doors to size, if needed, then
make 'em into shelving. There will
be some painting as well, so come with
drills with screwdriver attachments, and
"paint clothes". We'll need about
a dozen guys, Cliff says, from 9 -3.
Oh yeah . . . . the project was "cool"
because, at 10 in the morning, it was 17
degrees with the wind chill!! We
didn't CUT the doors, but we got them
moved to CS, and ripped out a 20-foot
work bench that was in the way.
Rob told us today how
he went to a pub with his girlfriend last night.
Locals were shouting "Pedophile", and other names
at him, just because he's 50 and his girlfriend's
21. Completely spoiled their 10th
Which reminded ME of the
time MY girlfriend called ME a pedophile . . . .
pretty big word for a 13-year old.
Rob also told us today that his wife
suggested he get myself one of those penis
so he did .... she's 21 and her name's Lucy.
had two items to brag: (1) The
Loveland Library is having its annual Valentine's
Day Dance (below), and (2) He was laid-off from
First National Bank after 22 years! He say's
he's now self-employed. Personally, I think
that any place that would lay-off Norm
doesn't know what they are doing. I
certainly wouldn't trust them with MY money!

I had an "un-brag",
'cause it was the first time I've been put out of
business by my "employer", Foothills Mall.
At least it feels that way. So I TOOK a
dollar from the brag box.
As I mentioned though, you don't really know who
your friends are until you move. Bernecker
called for a work party to help me move my 18
years of accumulated "stuff" from my shop, and
15-20 guys showed up and DID IT, and did it well!
Seriously, everything was packed so well,
nothing was broken!! I was amazed!!
Tim Miller gave me a MOVING VAN to use, and he and
Bernecker tracked down about 50 moving boxes!
It was well worth $5 to say "Thank You" to
everyone who helped.
Of course, Stoner said they all showed up 'cause
they heard I was leaving town,
but that that can't be true.
Monday, the 16th, is the first of our Flag Days.

Tom Bryan tells us he
is taking registration for a Classic Bicycle Tour
on March 20, in conjunction with McKee Hospital.
You can ride 62 miles, 37, 30, or 10 miles.
The cost runs from $5 to $55, depending on
distance. He even said he would pay YOUR
registration, although he'll pay it into the
Foundation, so I guess what he's doing is matching
Call Him! Cell:
On Tuesday President
Rob told us that the Board voted to give
$200 to the Wellington Boys and Girls
Club. He also reminded us about
the concept that Ron Young brought up
last year, and that was that every
member is EXPECTED to commit to giving
10 hours per quarter to the club.
This is how we raise money and get
projects done . . . . through our
There are many ways to help. If
you are in doubt as to HOW you can help,
just show up at a project (see above),
or ask Rob (or Ron Young, or Ken Reiter,
or ME). Now, if you're 80 years
old and have "paid your dues", well,
that's fine. But the club can
certainly use a little more
participation from many more
members. Of our official 78, we
have about a dozen who can be counted on
to show up, and that's just hard
on that dozen guys!
Foundation Funds are now at $62, 801
(goal is $75K)
Our SOW, Jim Bernecker, had some new rules
today. As the "SOWEE", he says that is
his prerogative. If you volunteer to
answer a clue and you're WRONG, it will only
cost you a quarter. If he has to call on
you because no one volunteered and you're
WRONG, it will be fifty cents. Strangely
enough, there were plenty of volunteers!
1: Our SOW was actually born in a log
cabin! Rob guessed Abraham Lincoln.
He paid his quarter.
Clue 2: This guy, in real life, had to
go milk the cows when he woke up.
Clue 3: He rebuilt his motorcycle on his
mother's kitchen table!
Clue 4: Our SOW is really a latent,
well-deserved artist with a brush!
Stoner muttered that he was a
latent something-else, but he thought I
was leaving town, too!
Clue 5: This gentleman is always
teaching his grandchildren how blessed we all
are in America, and all of the opportunities
we can make for ourselves.
Clue 6: When our SOW moved to Colordo to
go to school, he had a second-grade teacher
who taught him everything he knows.
Clue 7: This gentleman was a coach
of young folks, and, interestingly, always
wore an orange crush T-shirt.
Clue 8: He had lunch with Brad Pitt and
Angelina in Malta (!!)
Clue 9: He retired from KODAK! On
THIS clue, our SOW was finally guessed!
who was it? If Jim had mentioned
his Air Force Academy affiliation, or the fact
that he FLEW JETS, it might have been easier!
