Large crowds don't bother me too much, but I prefer a good mix of ages and a good mix of songs. Another thing that bothered me was that there were three police cars with lights ablaze in the rear of the building. Normally, this type of scenario usually spells trouble and I had one drink and left.The new owners are probably just experimenting and they had a good crowd, but young people are sometimes fickle and when they get bored, they move on. What's hot this month could be quite dead next month. We'll see.
I left Lakes to visit some friends who had called me earlier in the week at a very chic cigar club. I rarely go to cigar clubs, but I promised I'd meet them and so I did. As it turned out, the club was small and relatively smoke free. The lights were pleasingly low, the music smooth and a nice glass of chilled white wine was the perfect punctuation to the evening.
From the cigar club (I really don't remember the name), I went to The Billiards Club for a nightcap and arrived home sometime early Saturday morning. It was a pleasant evening with great friends.

A young newlywed couple wanted to join a church. The pastor told them, "We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from having sex for two weeks." The couple agreed and came back at the end of two weeks.
The pastor asked them, "Well, were you able to get through the two weeks without being intimate?" The young man replied, "Pastor, I'm afraid we were not able to go without sex for the two weeks." The pastor inquired, "What happened?"
The young man said, "My wife was reaching for a can of corn on the top shelf and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I was over come with lust and took advantage of her right there."The pastor said, "You understand, of course, that this means you will not be welcome in our church."The young man said, "That's ok, we're not welcome at the grocery store anymore either."
A fireman came home from work one day and told his wife, "You know, we have a wonderful system at the fire station. Bell 1 rings and we all put on our jackets, Bell 2 rings and we all slide down the pole, Bell 3 rings and we're on the fire truck ready to go. From now on when I say Bell 1, I want you to strip naked. When say Bell 2, I want you to jump in bed. And when I say Bell 3, we are going to make love all night."
The next night he came home from work and yelled, "Bell 1!" The wife promptly took all her clothes off. When he yelled "Bell 2!", the wife jumped into bed. When he yelled "Bell 3!", they began making love.
After a few minutes the wife yelled, "Bell 4!" The fireman said, "What the hell is Bell 4?" His wife replied, "Roll out more hose! You're nowhere near the fire!"
