Off The Cuff

November 14th, 2018

It’s always a fun lunch when we have the students to recognize. Principal Hudson Thomas led the boys in the pledge and Rev. Wayne Myers led us in prayer and blessed the high school seniors.

A memorial for Joe Ryan was held by Reverend Wayne Myers at The Pink Church. After some Psalms and touching words by Rev. Wayne we heard from Jim Terlizzi, Steve Izzi and Dan Cline with some humorous insights to Joe Ryan. It was a fine memorial to remember a member of the Greatest Generation. We raised a toast in Joe’s honor afterwards at BoneFish Mac’s.

Why Ethel changed motels.

 Ethel checked into a Motel on her 65th birthday; she was lonely, a little depressed at her advancing age and so decided to risk an adventure.

She thought, “I’ll call one of those men you see advertised in phone books for escorts and sensual massages.”

She looked through the phone book, found a full-page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony, a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo.

He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six-pack abs.

She figured, what the heck, nobody will ever know. I’ll give him a call,
“Good evening, ma’am, how may I help you?”

Oh my, he sounded sooo sexy! Afraid she would lose her nerve if she
hesitated, she rushed right in, “I hear you give a great massage.
I’d like you to come to my motel room and give me one.
No, wait, I should be straight with you. I’m in town all alone and what I
really want is sex. I want it hot, and I want it now.
Bring implements, toys, everything you’ve got in your bag of tricks.
We’ll go at it all night… tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and
whipped cream, anything and everything, I’m ready! Now how does that sound?”

He said, “That sounds absolutely fantastic, but you need to press 9 for an outside line.”
