A Report from the Southwest
from Sr. Member Roger Webster
We have had Heavy rains and floods here in Arizona. Last week the city of Phoenix needed to shut off the water treatment plants as the rains washed a lot of surface soil into the creeks and rivers, fouling up the plants. Recently, at a Kiwanis meeting, we had three people give the club a lecture on Identify crisis[sic]. Believe me, it did not hold a candle to the talk the Laconia Police Dept. gave us. Plenty to do with the Club, with peanut sales, going on now, flea market, estate sales. On Feb. 20 the club is having their annual pizza party at the Organ Pipe Pizza. Close to 80 members and guests will attend. Regards to all.

Some Thoughts from Steven Wright
Submitted by Sr. Member Ed Chertok
1- I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
2- Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.
3- Half the people you know are below average.
4- 42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
5- A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feels so good. 6- All those who believe in psycho-kinesis, raise my hand.
7- The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. 8- I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met. 9- OK, so what's the speed of dark?
10- How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?
11- Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
12- When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
13- Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to avoid work. 14- Hard work pays off in the future, laziness pays off now.
15- I intend to live forever--so far, so good.
16- If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
17- Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines. 18- What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
19- My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder." 20- Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
21- A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
22- Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. 23- The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread. 24- The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
25- The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up. 26- The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it. 27- Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.
