Everyone, have a great weekend. GerryWrite comment (0 Comments)
It is an 80 degree day on the patio of the General Store as the four of us gathered to exchange experiences and talk about people who were not there. As you can see from the photos, everyone was intent on something...either food, aggravations, fun or travel. Frank was still upset from his attempts to get Ryder Cup tickets from the PGA for next years competition. He was left disappointed and empty handed after a two hour on line waiting experience only to find out that a third party event company was given access to most tickets and they contacted him to let him know tickets were available at three times the PGA rate. Anger issues were abundant. Dave Schoenbeck was in attendance for the first time this fall, but unfortunately, he tweaked his back on the way down to the patio....first back pain in three years. Let us hope this is just temporary. He said he had visited with Tom Dieterele and his wife while they all were touring Paso Robles wine country. A great time as had by all, and the photos show that Tom and his wife looked fantastic, with the biggest nod to his wife...sorry Tom. Dave and Ellen have been visiting his children and grandchildren and are also planning a trip to New Zealand in March 2020. Bill Harbeck looks great but has been fighting some back issues as well. Hopefully he too will get some relief. Dave indicated that he had seen Richard Staiti and he hopes to make it to a Friday gathering with Russ Coon, who has been fighting a tough lung disorder. Dave also said he is taking golf lessons and the pro is looking to only changing 8 fundamental changes with his swing, stance, grip and ball positioning.....oh boy!

It was a gorgeous day on the patio of the General Store for the Fall kickoff of Romeo gatherings where five eager participants forego the waiting in line for an new iphone11 to have lunch/brunch with ole friends. Tom Endicott to time off from grease paint and stage presence to join us. He came by his acting career naturally in that he worked for Osco Drug in the 80’s and early 90’s along with Prism and other merchandising ventures. You have to be sort of a chameleon to survive in retail endearvors. Ton Nielsen was chowing down on his eggs benedict with the hollandaise on the side (I love that part) and telling us about his recent trips the most recent of which was a river trip to Portugal. The man is on the who’s who of world travelers.....Interpole has him on a special wartch list. Frank Stock, also an adventurer, just recently returned from Scotland and Ireland where he attended the British Open. Why watch TV when you can spend hours in airports and multiple hours in the air. He indicated the course created some havoc on his knees....still trying to relive his football days. Stan Petersen took some time off from his golf course to report on the great progress his mother in law has made from some recent surgery. She recently move to Anthem from South Dakota and is doing extremly well even after a minor fall. Deone has retired and just had some elective surgery on her foot and is running circles around Stan...who can’t. A man named John Spellman (pictured), he looked like John, was there today after a lengthy absence. His business is doing well and he has been busy with some health issues of his son who is on a heart and kidney transplant list. He is doing well and patiently waiting for his time to come up. The Bays recently returned from a fabulous trip to Israel and Jordan..what an adventure. I will say that the jet lag is second to none...maybe it’s age....nahhhhhhhhhhhhh.
