Thanks, Calendar Girls and Others

Thanks, Calendar Girls and Others - 03/20/06 07:15 PM

The rumor of my death has been greatly exaggerated. (somebody said that)I know you have missed my humor since I have been away. I want to make one final post regarding the Auction. Many people worked very hard behind the scene to make the auction such a success. They did so without, in my opinion, just recognition. Joyce, former owner of The Hideaway Lounge, put in many hours without a whole lot of help deserves a standing ovation! R.B & Judy (Lovey&Thurston) refinished and repainted the chairs, poor R.B. had just returned from Honduras after serving several weeks with the Medical Missionaries and still found time to do the rebuilding of the chairs in time for the auction. A standing ovation to both of them! Winning bids came from every direction, Pedro 1, Chap, Casey, Gary out bid everyone on several items and then donated the items back to be auctioned again! I can't name all the winners but to all of you, I say THANK YOU!!! The actual amount of money raised has been uped by $450.00 for a total of $8,750.00 !!!!! I am proud to have had a small part in this effort. Thanks again.

Ernie

wish I would have been aware of this auction, but then again, I could have never competed with Pete for Paisano's chair. Nice bid. Any idea what he plans to do with it?

Great job to all involved.

Re: Thanks, Calendar Girls and Others - 03/23/06 01:24 PM

Pete bought the old Hideaway Lounge from Joyce. I think he just wants it for fond memories. Pete has been in SP for many, many years and is a fine man.

Re: Thanks, Calendar Girls and Others - 03/27/06 08:29 PM

RMT - I seriously doubt this crew needed any encouragement, either :rolleyes: besides, I've pretty much always been a California girl - it's that cute Texan that's gonna change the mix!
C - we will be appropriately chauffeured and chaperoned - bail necessity highly unlikely! (But just in case, please keep reserves handy...)
K- we'll be incognito - no pix! and we may be on the left coast, but it's still the right coast! :p
