Chubbs: Back in 1965, Sports Illustrated said I was going to be the next Arnold Palmer.
Happy Gilmore: Yeah? What happened?
Chubbs: They wouldn't let me play on the Pro Tour anymore.
Happy Gilmore: Ah, I'm sorry. Because you're black?
Chubbs: Hell no! Damned alligator bit my hand off!
Happy GilmoreOh, my God!
Chubbs: Yeah. Tournament down in Florida. I hooked my ball in the rough down by the lake. Damned alligator just popped up, cut me down on my prime. He got me, but I tore one of that bastard's eyes out though. Look at that.
Happy Gilmore: You're pretty sick, Chubbs.

love this black and white layout.
quote from matthew mcconaughey in the
newspaper was the color theme choice.
coffee maker made the page - only 3299.00.
stuff that makes me laugh !


checked out e-book from library.
different - probably should have read what the book was about PRIOR to reading.

our house was lacking a chinese checkers board.
found this great one on sale a couple weeks ago.
colin and i finally had a chance to play.
colin didn't know how.
i thought i knew how.
2 extremely quick games went by.
either read the one page instructions 
or watch a you tube 1 minute video.
video seemed shorter.
game # 3 was much more challenging !
should of read the instructions before i
taught colin the wrong way to play !
everyday memory.

but love the bow - it's a keeper !
