Just Havin Fun Newsletter
August 28, 2016
From Mike ...
Okay, let's address this issue and move on - making teams for 2x2 tourneys. As we all know, all tourneys for the day are posted. There is really no reason to wait till 5 minutes before a tourney is set to begin to look for a partner. Waiting till the last minute causes the tourney to run over. And we shouldn't make a team unless we have a partner. We can't assume someone will come in and want to partner up. So please don't wait till the last minute to make a team or make a team without a partner.
Have a great week and good luck at the tables!
JHF's Early Bird Special ...
Okay for all you early risers, we have a tourney for you! Every morning during the week, Regular STD will be hosted at 700am. So grab your cup of coffee and join us at the tables!

Another JHF'er has been greased and roasted! Congrats to DaDevil on winning Aussiee_mischief's roast! In addition to winning the tourney, DaDevil got to rename Aussiee for the week. Aussiee's new name is DownUnderHussie. For being roasted, Aussiee_mischief was to pick who would be roasted next but since she was missing in action, DaDevil got the honors and T_ma5us is being prepped for the firepit. Way to go, DaDevil! Thanks for being good sports, Aussiee_mischief & T_ma5us!

We do ask that names not be totally offensive and that you remember you might be roasted next! IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ROASTED, PLEASE LET THE HOSTING TD KNOW SO SOMEONE ELSE CAN BE PICKED! Good luck and have fun!

On The Lighter Side with JHF ...
Bibles to Boats - A young man from Nebraska moves to Florida and goes to a big "everything under one roof" department store looking for a job. The manager asked, "Do you have any sales experience?" The kid replied, "Yeah, I was one of the best Bible salesmen back in Omaha." The boss liked the kid and gave him the job. "You can start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did." the boss said. His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the store was locked up, the boss came down and asked, "How many customers bought something from you today? The kid responded, "One." The boss said, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was the sale for?" "$101,237.65." said the kid smiling. "$101,237.65? Holy Mother Mary! What did you sell to him?" asked the shocked boss. "First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then, I sold him a medium fish hook. Then, I sold him a larger fish hook. Then, I sold him a new fishing rod. Then, I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast. I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Boston Whaler. Then, he said he didn't think his car would pull it, so I took him down to the automobile department and sold him a 4x4 truck with all the bells and whistles." answered the kid. "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a truck?" questioned the boss. "No, the guy came in here to buy feminine products for his wife, and I said, '"Dude, your weekend's shot. You should go fishing!'"

From Our Members ...
Walking on Water - compliments of Sweett_sassyblues_4u
A rabbi, priest and a minister are out fishing in a boat on a big lake when the priest realizes that he has to go to the bathroom. Not wanting to disturb the fishing of the others in the boat by having them take him to shore, he gets out of the boat and walks across the water to do his business and then returns to the boat. A little while later the minister has to go also and he does the same. He walks across the water, does his business and returns across the water to the boat. Finally, the rabbi feels the urge to go to the bathroom too, so he climbs out of the boat. But instead of walking across the water, he falls into the water and starts to wildly splash around. The priest and the minister finally drag the rabbi back into the boat and the priest turns to the minister and says, "Maybe we should have told him where the rocks were."
