From the President:

Salutations to all who are receiving this month’s short missive.  By now, many of you and your family have probably have received both doses of the Covid vaccine.  I wish you all success against the virus as we move ahead in this year.

I was hoping to hear from the POA regarding the opening of the POA Hall for the hosting of our monthly meeting.  No word as of this writing; I will pass on any change as soon as I receive notice.

From the PBA, our heartfelt sympathies to the family of PBA member Sgt. Fred Kingsley.  I would also like to pass along swift recoveries to the retirees who have recently experienced injuries and those dealing with medical concerns.

Cheers to the members celebrating their respective April birthdays.  Thank you, Ken Yules, for contacting me and providing an updated mailing address so I could resend your gift card.  It is a small gesture, but the gift cards give all the members an opportunity to get something back from your PBA.  I really appreciate your support and continued membership.

The April drawing was conducted and the winners of the $25 gift cards are:

  1. Joe Ross Peets Coffee
  2. Don Meade Target
  3. Dale Harris Bass Pro Shop

As always; if you may have a question, concern or comment and would like to reach out, my email is:

Be safe out there and good health to all,

Ernie Alcantar

PBA President

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!

BOB HOPE IN HEAVEN
For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your grandparents and thanks for the memories.

On his deathbed they asked Him where he wanted to be buried…
 
Bob Hope replied: “Surprise me.”

ON TURNING 70 – “I still chase women, but only downhill.”
ON TURNING 80 – “That’s the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing.”
ON TURNING 90 – “You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.”
ON TURNING 100 – ” I don’t feel old. In fact, I don’t feel anything until noon. Then it’s time for my nap.”
ON GIVING UP HIS EARLY CAREER (BOXING) – “I ruined my hands in the ring. The referee kept stepping on them.”
ON GOLF – “Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.”
ON PRESIDENTS – “I have performed for 12 presidents but entertained only six.”
ON WHY HE CHOOSE SHOWBIZ FOR HIS CAREER – “When I was born, the doctor said to my mother, congratulations, you have an eight pound ham.”
ON RECEIVING THE CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL – “I feel very humble, but I think I have the strength of character to fight it.”
ON HIS FAMILY’S EARLY POVERTY – “Four of us slept in the one bed. When it got cold, mother threw on another brother.”
ON HIS SIX BROTHERS – “That’s how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.”
ON HIS EARLY FAILURES – “I would not have had anything to eat if it wasn’t for the stuff the audience threw at me.”
ON GOING TO HEAVEN   
“I have done benefits for ALL religions. I would hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.”

This is a tribute to a man who DID make a  difference

I had forgotten that he lived to be 100,and also didn’t realize it has been over 17 years since he died.

Let a smile course across your face and your tired body relax as you view a few good humor pictures.

A VARIETY OF GOODIES











BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!

You Will Not Believe the INSANE Proposals Austin Is Considering for ‘Reimagining’ Public Safety

COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU?

Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced that he wanted to “reimagine” public safety in the city. If the use of the word “reimagine” pinged your “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” radar, you will soon know how right you are.

EDITOR: I HOPE I NEVER GET THAT DRUNK!

Got to Love the Irish.

 

For those of you men over 80 thinking about remarrying, a cautionary tale. For you younger folks be warned!




I WALKED ONE DAY WITH MY FATHER WHEN SUDDENLY HE ASKED ME, “DO YOU HEAR ANYTHING?

“YES,” I REPLIED, “THE NOISE OF THE WAGON”

EXCELLENT, HE SAID, AND IT’S EMPTY AND HOW DO YOU KNOW? WE CAN’T SEE IT.

VERY EASY BECAUSE THE EMPTIER THE WAGON IS, THE MORE NOSE IT MAKES.

WHEN I HEAR SOMEONE BRAGGING TOO MUCH AND BELITTLING OTHERS, I HER MY FATHER’S VOICE SAYING, 

“THE EMPTIER THE WAGON IS… THE GREATER THE NOISE IT MAKES”
