50/50: The 50/50 pot is $434.  Justine picked the lucky number of 347, which was her number (oops).Anyway
she didn’t pick the Queen of Hearts.  Come again next week for another try at it.

Presidential Minute: Lois was on vacation.

GUEST SPEAKER: Our scheduled speaker has rescheduled for this fall, so, President Glen gave us a
'Classification Talk', his chance to tell us about himself and the business he is in. Glen grew up in Needham, and
is the son of Past President Rick Davis, and Grandson of Past President (1966/67) of Ed Davis. Glen went to
River's School in Weston (when it ws not coed) and from there went on to Muhlenberg College in Allentown PA.
He majored in history, and like every other good history grad, went into the insurance business! First he
went to work for Aetna Insurance, and then went to his Dad and Grandfathers business known as Provider Insurance

He and his fiancee Diane own a home in Andover and a home in Chatham.

We have been fortunate to have 3 generations of Davis's as members, and we are so thankful that Glen has
agreed to serve a second term as President. Thank you Glen!

HUMOR: (Courtesy of Tom Savino):
A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.  She was very good looking and was determined
to keep the ranch.  However she knew very little about ranching so she put an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.
Two cowboys applied for the job.  One was gay and the other a drunk.  She thought long and hard about it and
decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around that the drunk.
He proved to be a very hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.   For weeks the
two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.
Then one day, the widow said to the hired hand,” You’ve done a really good job and the ranch looks great. 
You should go into town and kick up your heels.”  The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday
One o’clock came and he hadn’t returned.  Two o’clock came and no hired hand.  Finally he returned around
two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher’s widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.
She quietly called him over.  “Unbutton my blouse and take it off,” she said.  Trembling, he did as she directed.  “Now take off my boots.”  He did as she asked, ever so slowly.
“Now take off my socks.”  He gently removed each and placed them neatly by her boots.  “Now take off my skirt.”  He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.
“Now take off my bra.”  Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.
Then she looked at him and said, “If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you’re fired.”
