The Luther Lions club owns and loans out several wheel chairs at no cost. However, several chairs are missing and they are asking that you check and see if perhaps you have one that you are no longer using. If you do, please return them to the Lions Club so they will be available to anyone who needs them now. The Lions Club is very generous with the medical equipment they own, and it is available to everyone. The Lions Club would like to thank Jay Wallick for his contribution of a new lighted sign at the front of the Lions property. Once again I remind you that the 23rd Luther Lioness Club Blood Drive will be held on August 26 at the Luther Lions Building, from noon until 5:45 p.m. If you have not been contacted, and would like an appointment, please feel free to contact me at 797-5541. Please remember to bring a picture ID and\/or you donor card. One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over breakfast. They hear the announcer say, \u201cWe are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through.\u2019 Norman\u2019s wife Annie goes out and moves her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer says, \u201cWe are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street so the snowplows can get through.\u201d Annie goes out and moves her car again. The next week they are again having breakfast when the radio announcer says \u2018We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park\u2026\u201d Then the power goes out. Annie is very upset and with a worried look on her face she says, \u201cHoney, I don\u2019t know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?\u201d With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, Norman says\u2026 \u201cAnnie, why don\u2019t you just leave it in the garage this time.\u201d Bubba and Billy Joe are walking down the street in Atlanta, and they see a sign on a store which reads, \u201csuits $5.00 each. Shirts $2.00 each, trousers $2.50 each. Bubba says to his pal, Billy Joe, \u201cLook here: We could buy a whole gob of these, take \u2018em back to Sand Mountain, sell \u2018em to our friends and make a fortune.\u201d \u201cJust let me do the talkin\u2019 cause if they hear your accent, they might think we\u2019re ignorant and not wanna sell that stuff to us. Now, I\u2019ll talk in a slow Georgia drawl so\u2019s they don\u2019t know we is from Alabama.\u201d They go in and Bubba with his best fake Georgia drawl, \u201cI\u2019ll take 50 of them suits at $5.00 each, 100 of them shirts at $2.00 each, 50 pairs of them there trousers at $2.50 each. I\u2019ll back up my pickup and--\u201d The owner of the shop interrupts, \u201cYa\u2019ll from South Alabama, ain\u2019t ya?\u201d \u201cWell\u2026yah,\u201d says a surprised Bubba\u2026.\u201dHow come you knowed that?\u201d \u201cBecause this is a dry-cleaners.\u201d Last night Mitzi woke me up at about 1:30 a.m. She was standing on my chest. She does that when we are going to have a storm, and although I heard no thunder and there was no lightening, she persisted in trying to get close to me. Then I saw the problem: we had a BAT flying around the living room ceiling! So we chased it around, opening all the doors, hoping that it would fly out. Finally, I decided to go upstairs to my room and shut the door, which we did. I don\u2019t know what happened to the bat. I hope it flew out one of the open doors, but I can\u2019t be sure. In the meantime, I am keeping my fish net and my badmitten rackets close by. Did you know: August is the month that bats try to take up residence in our houses? It is my understanding that the bats that were born in the spring are now kicked out of the nest by their mothers, and are looking for a new home. I wish I knew where they are coming in, but they tell me a bat can get in through the smallest little hole, just like a mouse can. Last night was not fun, and I will be happy when August is over and the bats go wherever they go for the winter! Thought for the week; A real leader faces the music even when he doesn\u2019t like the tune. Have a good week.
