August Meeting

A great time was had by everyone who attended the meeting in August at Patriots. They had great drink specials with some imports for one dollar! Dangerous Dan did a great job entertaining us! Rosie and DeWayne racked up with the 50/50 drawing!


Pour me a Hurricane, before I go Insane! Hurricane party at Tropical Escape Cafe!

A parrothead will find any reason to have a party! And that we did when about 25 Sandlappers converged on Tropical Escape for a party to thumb our noses at Hurricane Charley.

Drink of the Month

Lemon Drop

One shot of quality Vodka chilled
One half of a slice of lemon dipped in sugar.
Drink the Vodka as a shot and immediately suck on the lemon….
tastes just like a lemon drop

What happens when you send four Sandlapper Men to pick up a hot tub? A Trip to Hooters…of course!

You see….Ron, Mark, Roger and DeWayne all went to pick up a hot tub for Billy.  Ron donated the hot tub to aid in Billy’s recovery. We were feeling so bad for them…they had to spend a Sunday afternoon working so hard! Mark explains below:

   “We got Billy’s hot tub and after much tugging, lifting and straining we got Roger off the table at Hooters on Sunday. You see the cute, young, 1st day on the job, waitress became convinced that it was Roger’s 21st birthday and had him on the table being sung to. We have NO IDEA where she got that concept, or why she thinks DeWayne’s last name is Wachovia! Needless to say, we all have back strains and pulled muscles (from trying to keep from falling out of our chairs and rolling on the floor during this escapade). Oh incidentally, there is now a new addition to the James’ pool area. It needs a bit of TLC, but will be a wonderful item to assist recovery. Thank you Ron!!!
