  • A bridal veil made of window screen is not only cost effective but also a proven fly deterrent.
  • Its is not okay for the groom to bring a date to a wedding.
  • For the reception, reserve the VFW far in advance, and avoid Saturdays since that's square dancing night.
  • Livestock usually is a poor choice for a wedding gift.
  • Kissing the bride for more than 15 seconds may get you cut. .
  • Though uncomfortable, say yes to socks and shoes for this special occasion.
  • For the groom, at least rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create a natty appearance.

We will have to watch the fall out, and see who got "paid."

I see that this has not made the local news.....

  • Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up immediately after the movie has ended.
  • Do not ask the concession stand attendant for the nacho cheese recipe.
  • Refrain from talking to characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you.

Puck- count me in for talking on Jan 31st. I can't yet commit to the other dates, but I'm interested!

So, what's the agenda? On January 1st, do we give a talk 3 different times, for 3 different classes in Periods 1, 2, & 3? Or are we speaking to one class, 3 different times throughout the next few months?

Whatever the hell happens, it should be fun. Just keep me posted.


PM sent

Still need some assistants here.

Send me a PM here, or talk to me at the meeting.  I'll keep a running list.

And yes, I do know that the DERFTF is the very next day after our first presentation.  One of my staunchest supporters for this event is a major player in the DERFTF.

Mike Q. landed a catfish on that fly, yesterday (2014-01-04).  Another member of the club was going to join us, but got caught up in volunteer work.

 Redneck Etiquette - DRIVING ETIQUETTE
Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded
and the deer is in sight.
When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way.
Never tow another car using pantyhose and duct tape.
When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer.
Do not remove the seats from the car so that all your kids can fit in.
Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.
