Katie DeMeulenaere has asked if anyone would take her hubby Ed for a day.

Ed fell two weeks ago, nothing broken - but does use a walker and is staying home a lot !!!

Katie needs some alone time..............HELP !!! Just Kidding ???

• Packer Pool winner this week was Bob Letsch. His 3rd win this season.

• Cribbage: Bobby Letsch teamed with his younger brother Tim Letsch for his 1st win in November. Tim said his back was hurting, still carrying his big brother.

The victory celebration was short-lived.

The 2nd game went to Rick Ropiak and Bob Letsch almost in a "Skunk"..........

Rubber match not reported.

Table #2: Don "Donnie Dozens" Klemt and his partner Joe Macareno split with Dan DeMatthew & George Gordon ------- Rubber match winner not reported.

• Racine News............

• Your laugh for the day !!!

I stopped at McDonald’s on Saturday to pick up a Diet Coke and a Diet Dr Pepper.

Both drive-up lanes were very busy with a number of cars in each lane.

I waited for my turn, then pulled up to the speaker and waited to hear from the attendant.

I waited and waited; meanwhile cars in the other lane are no doubt being waited on.

After the 2nd car in the other lane was waited on, I called out, “Can I get Some Help?”

Still “NO ANSWER” and cars in the adjoining lane are being waited on.

My patience was running thin, but before I asked a 2nd time for help —


To add insult to injury, as I drove off I realized my back window was open.

Deer Hunters:

Earl Wirtz was absent today, he's up North hunting for Bambi.

Dave Benjamin will miss next Monday, as he too will be up North hunting for Bambi.
