No Laughing Matter, Bang!, -and- Willard

No Laughing Matter - Wal-Mart to own all smiley faces?
Bang! - dad protecting family fatally shoots would-be robber
Willard - rats trained for landmine searches

POSER: (Congratulations to Cap'n Jack for solving!)
Q: What do you call a synthetic champion golfer?
A: Arnold Polymer

The weather was beautiful all weekend. We snacked and played a Scrabble tournament Saturday. I was victorious. For dinner, we had grilled chicken breasts and garlic/Jalapeño mashed potatoes.

Sunday, we snacked and played a Trivial Pursuit tournament. Laura was victorious. While Laura tended the grill, roasting baby back ribs, I prepared a large batch of Cajun beans. It was a delightful meal.

It appears that we shall have wonderful weather for our annual Car Show. There will be burn-out competition and a cruise Friday evening and burn-out finals, a car show, raffle, and awards on Saturday.
