A Message from Madame President
Hello All, May was a busy month! We had two UBSCC events; the Drive-In movie night and the Drive with Costanzos. Things are starting to happen for us!
I helped Katie C do a pre-run of the Costanzo drive. We had a great time; I am sure it was fun for those of you able to go.
Honey and I had a May birthday celebration in Oregon; our daughter, Jackie, turned 42. (I don’t understand how that could be… I am only 35!) Honey traveled to Springfield/Eugene and got to go to the party in person, while Dan and I attended virtually. Those silly party goers even gave me a hat to wear!
Honey was gone for 10 days. Silly me; I thought I would have my own party time while Honey was gone. Maybe a trip to the coast. I even set up a get away to the mountains with my sister. Then dog disaster hit the very day Hon-ey left.
It started with our 13-year-old beagle, Elvis (The King), demanding to go outside every hour. All day and ALL night. It was too cold to leave him outside, but I finally fixed it so he could get out at night without my assistance. But I was sure “pooped” after a couple of nights like that. After no improvement on a pumpkin and rice diet, I took The King to the vet. She determined it was “something he ate.” (Perhaps the steak bone I have him on Mother’s Day combined with the baby bird he got a hold of three days before that?). With the meds she gave him, and a personally prepared diet of chicken and rice, he is much better now. This was not my first rodeo with Elvis-who-eats-almost-anything. If you’ve ever had a beagle, you know what I mean.
I planted some tomatoes just before Honey got home. This year I put them in wine barrels instead of orange Home Depot buckets. I hope they do as well!
Here are the jokes for the month:
Q: Why don't dogs make good dancers? A: Because they have two left feet!
After the English sheepdog gets all the sheep in the pen, he reports back to the farmer: “All 40 accounted for.” “
But I only have 36 sheep,” says the farmer.
“I know,” says the sheepdog. “But I rounded them up.”
Looking forward to seeing you at an event soon!
Your Prez, Katie O
