Seventh Anniversary

The following is a brief excerpt of a conversation between Shannon and myself.

Shannon: June 3rd is coming up do you know what that marks?
Me: It’s a very special anniversary.
Shannon: Yes it is.
Me: It’s the anniversary of when the Beer Barrel Polka hit #1 on the charts back in 1939.
Shannon: ?????
Me: I really love the rendition that was later performed by Chico Marx! I think you can find it on YouTube.
Shannon: That is NOT what I was referring to.
Me: sorry

So it is Lost and Found’s seventh anniversary coming up on June 3rd and you should join us for food, live music, karaoke, and an all around good time.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day last year was fantastic with the parade coming past our store. A level of pride could be seen in our community as everyone watched the participants. During the parade I overheard a kid’s question to his mother:

Kid: Mom, do soldiers ever go to heaven?
Mom: Of course they do! What makes you ask?
Kid: There are so many soldiers with beards but I never saw any pictures of angels with beards.
Mom: Oh, that’s because most vets who go to Heaven get there by a close shave.

Jesus Revolution

Next week we are showing the recently released movie, Jesus Revolution. It will be on our screen Wednesday the 17th at 5PM.

Since we are getting ready for a good Christian movie, I feel compelled to share some Christian humor

As someone that runs a pharmacy, I though it was important to point out when medicine is first mentioned in the Bible.
It was when God gave Moses two tablets.

Jesus, LEGOs, 3D printers, and more….

Recently someone was boasting to me that they could 3D print a gun….
I wasn’t impressed. I’ve had a Canon printer for years.

So we have lots of things to look forward to, including a LEGO competition in a week and a half, the Jesus Revolution movie in mid May, our first big cookout of the year at the end of May, a 3D printing service soon, lots of board games with unique add-ons, and more than what should be crammed into an introductory sentence.

You get a cheese ball, and you get a cheese ball, and you get a cheese ball…

So I was trying to come up with this week’s topic when I realized I needed help. I could have turned to my trusty help mate that happens to be a wise advisor, or I could go to the internet in search of something completely random. I chose the latter.

I landed on a calendar of obtuse holidays. Here is what I found:

April 13th: National Scrabble Day – I find myself at a loss of words for this holiday.
April 14th: National Look up at the Sky Day – Unfortunately people already accuse me of having my head in the clouds.
April 15th: Husband Appreciation Day – While I will be sure to let Shannon know about this, I’m not sure it should be my email topic this week.
April 16th: World Semicolon Day – Considering the plethora of punctuation errors that I make, I need to skip this one.
April 17th: National Cheese Ball Day – Now this is a holiday I can get behind as I know much and more about this cheesy topic.

To answer the first question that probably pops into your head the answer is, “No I am not making this up.” Also, to answer the second question, “We are not getting ready to sell cheese balls.”

Cheese balls have an interesting history, including:

  • The first cheese ball was officially presented to President Thomas Jefferson at the White House in 1801.
  • The first cheese ball recipe didn’t appear in cookbooks until 1944 (Food of My Friends by Virginia Safford).
  • But what is probably the most memorable cheese ball event didn’t occur till December 2012….

I have a Movie Idea

So we have three great movies coming up at Lost and Found, including The Book of Daniel, Clue, and the Jesus Revolution.

With all the bevy of big blockbusters coming our way it reminds of a movie idea I tried pitching to some action stars from the 80s. It went like this:

Me: I have this idea where the three of you would be cast as classic composers.
Stallone: I’ll play Vivaldi.
Bruce Willis: I’ll be Mozart.
Schwarzenegger: Stop it guys I’m not saying it.

Can you buy an entire chess set in a pawnshop?

So I am super excited for this upcoming board game night! I have been making an overly complicated expansion for an overly complicated board game. Anyone that knows me probably realizes that it makes sense. While making this expansion, I needed some additional game pieces. I walked into a board game shop and met a very pedantic clerk. Our conversation went as follows:

Me: I want a dice.
Clerk: The correct term is ‘die’.
Me: I want 2 die.
Clerk: Plural is dice, alone it’s die.
Me: I want 2 die alone.

What followed was a lot of confused blinking from the clerk.
