Happy Dollars:

Two Happy Dollars were collected:

$1 from Don Nelson for winning
$1 from Dick Metz because his recent visit to Dartmouth Hitchcock found normal Brain Wave Activity. (In fact his doctors said his brain was in such good condition it looked as though it had never been used).

That isn't a blank stare...it's "normal brain wave activity."


None tonight.


Tonight's meeting was adjourned at 6:57 p.m.

OOOPS...Correction Noted:
In last week’s bulletin it was reported that Dennis Denoncourt correctly identified five of the 10 individuals in the picture. The fact is: Dennis correctly identified six of the individuals. Initially it was believed that the Thurston in the picture was Mark Thurston and not his identical twin brother, David, as Dennis Denoncourt had correctly noted. Prior to publishing last week’s edition, Mark Thurston was contacted in efforts to get a correct identification. Mark noted that the individual in the picture was in fact his brother, David. However, your editor inadvertently failed to go back and give Dennis additional credit for his answer. The moral of the story is: When looking for accuracy always depend on a good CPA. Congratulations again to Dennis Denoncourt!
