PP RAY’S RAMBLINGS:
Richard had 2 -50-yard line seats for the Super Bowl. A stranger noticed the open seat and inquired why. Richard said he wife of 60 years had always come with him but not today – of course the stranger suggested he could have brought a friend but Richard responded that they were all at his wife’s funeral.
.Warren $50 to the Foundation. PP Bob Moreau got him a bottle of Makers Mark 46 bourbon and Prez Chris tried to auction it off since it was sitting at the podium. Lion Rob bid $40 but when Warren said Chris had stolen the bottle Rob had to withdraw his bid as he couldn’t have stolen property.
2nd Veep Gary Z thought this entire story was great and he also donated $50 to the Foundation. Thanks Fellow Lions for your generosity and a good story.
.Paul W $7 in memory of Judy Hollingsworth
