Golf Tourney Update...

We have now cleared over $17,000 from this year's golf tourney and that will fund three student full-ride scholarships for next year. We spent more money than ever and made more than ever. Something must be going right thank God.

The band and sushi bar will be a permanent fixture from now on. If we have to go to morning and afternoon flights because we have so many people playing golf, that would be a wonderful problem to have. I'll handle it.

Next year when you are done playing golf, bring your significant other and let's burn the joint down with a huge party. Or just come for the dinner. We did not stop until 11:30 pm. The bar was open from 10 am until 11:30 pm. Say what you want about me (and many do) but I know how to throw a party.

See you next April 25, 2014.

Welcome home Leona Helmsley.

For those of you sleeping at the switch out there contemplating the end of the war on terror, here's a new thought for you. Has it crossed your mind that the Obama administration has taken on a certain "Nixonian" flavor to it lately? Nixon had an "enemies list" and he was out to get them. Even the great Paul Samuelson was on that list. Now we have the president blowing the "dog whistle" and we have the IRS business along with the investigation of leaks and the harassment of the AP and Fox news and all of a sudden it is 1972 again. Welcome home Leona Helmsley.

Golf Fun

Golf Observations

1. These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.
~ Sam Snead

2. I was three over today: One over a house, one over a patio and one over a swimming pool..

~ George Brett

3. Actually, the only time I ever took out a one-iron was to kill a tarantula. And I took a 7 to do that.

~ Kevin Costner

6. I don't fear death, but I sure don't like those three-footers for par.
~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

7. After all these years, it's still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye.

~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

8. The ball retriever is not long enough to get my putter out of the tree.

~ Brian Weis

9. Swing hard in case you hit it.

Clowning around at the golf tournament.

Here is the Disgruntled Clown at this year's event. Looks like we are going to clear over $16,000 to fund student scholarships this year. It keeps getting bigger and better and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
