Happy Bucks 

Lion Pete had a happy $20, one for each of the states he drove through on his recent three-week trip back to Mississippi, and he was sorry he didn’t bring back any moonshine.

Lion Jamil was happy he made it to the meeting today and was happy to have his wife with us today. (this is two weeks in a row we have had a police presence at our meetings; interesting) 

Lion Brad had a $5 happy buck because he had not heard from Lion Tom Links’s lawyer because of the dog “incident” a week ago at Brad’s house.

Lion Bob Line was happy he got to play golf this morning and that his great-granddaughter had graduated from Golden West this past week. He was also happy he recently got a Lion tattoo. 

Lion Pat was happy he was going to see the Masters of Harmony musical group in Sothern, California, with his Daughter and Son.

Lion Tom Link was happy that he had played golf at the country club recently and had two pars, and also played this morning and had two pars on that course.

Lion Allen was happy to see Lions Justin and Jamil at our meeting and happy Jamil’s wife was with us. That was a $3 happy buck.

Lion Pat was also happy to see Lions Justin and Jamil with us today.

Lion Mark Olson was happy that he had been to a Rawhyed game and had a lot of fun, though he fined himself for first saying he had gone to an Oaks game.


Lion Tom Link was fined for being late. 

Lion Dee fined both Lions Justin and Jamil because they had not been to a meeting in a long time.
