April eBoard and General Membership

Base Commander Sends...Tuesday, March 31, 2020

I seriously doubt that we have any real chance of having a meeting for April. The extension of the Stay-at-Home guidelines to/through April 30th is pretty much going to put the kibosh on the meeting schedule.

It is, of course, still possible that it may be extended into the future. We will have to wait and see.

To that end, I believe that the best way to proceed for this week (eBoard) is to simply send me your reports, either eMail, video or telephone. Another virtual meeting for the General Meeting is likely a possibility, for which I would once again need your video presentations. Through today, we have had nearly 350 views of the March General Meeting. More than fifty members participated by "checking in" via comment or eMail.

As of today, I think that this is the best we can do for April.

Things have been pretty crazy at work, as you might imagine. I am pretty tired and in a good deal of pain, but we keep pushing forward. Like my old days in Social Services, just when you start thinking that it's just not worth the effort, you come across somebody who really needed you. It has been remarkable and uplifting. And very tiring.

As I am being called into work almost every day, if you need me ASAP the best way to get me right now is via text. I will get to calls as quickly as possible.

Anything else?

Monthly General Membership Meeting

3rd Sat, 10 AM (ON-LINE This Week)

(Except Summer Picnic & Dec Christmas Party)

FRA #29, 521 National Avenue, Bremerton


Subject: Spoke before Thinking

 A husband walks into Victoria's Secret to purchase a sheer negligee for his wife.

 He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price -- the more sheer, the higher the price.

 Naturally, he opts for the most sheer item, pays the $500, and takes it home.

 He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on, and model it for him

 Upstairs the wife thinks (she's no dummy), 'I have an idea. It's so sheer that it might as well be nothing.

 I won't put it on, but I'll do the modeling naked, return it tomorrow, and keep the $500 refund for myself.'

She appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose.

The husband says, 'Good Grief! You'd think for $500, they'd at least iron it!'

He never heard the shot!
