I have been very busy this week. Finished up the stage for Victor's wedding.
Again the canteen has been very flat during the week. Had a great day on Thursday with the Wham-bam Bingo. We did have a good weekend, Queen of Hearts Friday night followed by Mambo Wally, Bill and Ruth's wedding reception on Saturday and Victor's wedding on Sunday. The hunt for the Queen was the slowest I have had since we started the game. Mike & Mary were the sheriff for the night and again she got away. If you like music you should of had a great time this week with live bands Friday night and again on Saturday and Sunday afternoon. I was suppose to have got the plans back from the engineer today, but it didn't happen, maybe tom0rrow.
I have a hard time this week loading into my blog. I have had a busy week getting the stage ready for Victors wedding on Sunday. Will post some pictures in the gallery later today. The engineer still has all the paper work needed to go for the permit. He has been working with the plan checker as well as the architect so we should get it right this time. Friday nights hunt for the Queen again was unsucces full, when she found out who the sheriff was ,she shook in her boots and ran. It was Larry Ashes second or third attempt to capture her but was out foxed. Reward for Friday will be $2,800.00. After the Queen Mambo Wally will be playing for August Birthday's. We will be having a busy weekend so if you have nothing to due come on down Ellen still has spots for the parking lot sale on August 30th W also would like to send our prayers to the Steve Brock family. Steve was the person who provided the concrete pump used to fill the block in our retaining wall. He passed on the the job earlier this week. Have a great week.
Well, finally some progress. The Paving Contractors showed up on Friday. They busted their butts and knocked out the job in one day and it looks great. Got the concrete bumpers down today, thanks to the help from the 1st Vice Bob. Received the lumber this afternoon in order to fix the stage before the Patriots run this Saturday. It will be roughed out but will get the tile on later. Got a call from the Building Dept. saying that they have talked to the Fire Dept and we will not have to install Sprinklers . I will have to sign a waiver for some other changes that they were requiring. Tomorrow I will be going to the engineers office to see what his hold up is seeing that he is not answering his phone. Friday night Ellen came charging in on her horse in an attempt to lasso the Queen for the reward of $2,500.00, again she escaped, the reward will be increased to $2,700.00 for this week. Uncle Dan's Jam was a great success on Friday Night so they came back Sat. night. We will be having Country Music again this Friday after the Queen. NASCAR winners for Sunday were Larry Ash for $125.00 and 12 points Deli Bob 2nd for $75.00 and 10 points that gave him the lead in the points chase. He also won $40.00 on the $1.00 board. Japana won the other $1.00 board. If you haven't been down to check out the new sod and all of the other changes we have made do it to it and have a beer, that how we pay for these changes
