DATELINE: GULL LAKE XXX3

Hope the new year finds everyone in good spirits. It is time to update the group on what will be happening this year and February is as good a time as any. Since the snow will be flying and with the temps below zero what better time to digest the 5 pages of information which are the rules.

In keeping with Mike W's progressive philosophy there have been some updates to this years outing.

1) Continued redistribution of the the entry fees so there is no top 1%. We will continue to try and make the games so everyone puts in $43 and everyone wins $43. We all walk away with participation trophies.

2) Improvement in our golf and total self esteem. We want to ensure that no one is subjected to any conversations on the course or at the bar they feel are inappropriate or debates that they do not want to hear because they disagree with the other person. To accommodate this each condo will be provide with a package that includes the following:

> Coloring book to channel their inner child
> Stuffed toy so they can be comforted by a non talking object
> A game to relieve the mental tension associated with being around me
> Directions to a safe zone which will be located in Kentucky so by time you get there and back "THE GULLER" will be over

Hope these improvements meet everyone's basic rights to free golf, free golf clubs and free alcohol. Any questions contact your attorney. Enjoy!!!!!!!

DATELINE: HUDSONVILLE, MICHIGAN

Trend-setting second-grader Luke McCarty has a cool, new haircut -- and it looks like a return to the McCarty boys' haircuts of the 1950s and '60s. Back then, home barber Jean McCarty gave her boys two 'dos: a brush cut in summer and a longer version in winter with a pomp. The winter cut required a comb. "Looks great," Mike McCarty said of his grandson's summer-style haircut. "Do they still make Butch Wax?"

DATELINE: METRO ARTS, BEATS, & EATS

This past month, the Clinton Township McCarty's had some adventures in dining, music, and shows. On Valentine's Day, Kelly & Margaret were joined by friends and Metro subscribers Mo, Bev, Jon, and Carol on their annual fine dining adventure to the Castle Of White. All three couples offered compliments to the chef.

   

Kelly & Margaret also saw come great shows in Detroit this past month. The couple went to the Detroit Opera House to see "The Lion King". It was a great show, with wonderful music. The couple also did some dining in Greektown (OPA!), and even won some money at the Greektown Casino (well, at least Margaret did). 

The following week, Grandma & Grandpa Editor took Olivia down to the beautiful Fox Theatre for "Sesame Street Live". We were all singing with the cast. It was a really good show, and I am going to name-drop a bit as we saw and met all the stars including Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Grover, Telly, Abby, Oscar, The Count, and of course Elmo. It was a very fun and exhausting afternoon, as seen by the final picture of Olivia, still dreaming she is Abby Cadabby.

   

In this issue, we follow Austin McCarty on his 2 week trip to Europe

WEEK LONG WORK IN ENGLAND

I flew to London Heathrow and taxi'd to my hotel in Luton, England. Taxi'd back down to London to scalp a ticket to the Arsenal - Hull City Game (the only football match that would happen in the area while I was there). Grabbed a burger and few brews at a bar near the stadium, an Arsenal-fan only bar. After the 2-0 win, I walked around downtown near the Thames River and saw the Old Bailey and a few other tourist attractions. I worked 4 days in Luton, England at the Vauxhall office, which flew by. I was there to do Knowledge Transfer sessions for our Infotainment platform. My other nights were exploring the bars around London, trying to figure out the Overground routes, walking around downtown by the Thames River, seeing the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, having a few cocktails on the roof of a hotel's sky lounge (which is 12 stories up Ė a skyscraper for London), hitting a ball-pit bar (would highly recommend), and plenty more. The British Museum was also amazing and I spent 4 hours just walking around checking everything out.

WEEKEND IN AMSTERDAM

I took a flight to Amsterdam where I strolled around the canals mostly, took a bike tour around the city, checked out the nightlife, stayed in a hostel and caught a cold from one of my roommates. A great time, I just wish my immune system had kept me safe. A beautiful city!

     

WEEK OF WORK IN MAINZ / RUSSELSCHEIM / FRANKFURT

At this point, I took a train from Amsterdam to Mainz, Germany. This is when my cold really kicked in and I was just trying to keep it together. I worked for four days to ensure the new version of software was working with our Infotainment vehicles. Outside of work, a Mardi-Gras type of celebration was happening this week. Most of the time I stayed in and just ordered room service, so this was pretty uneventful. Thursday night was my last night there, so a few coworkers and I went out in Mainz to enjoy some brews and go wild. Thursday was ladies night -where men go out and wear ties, and women go out with scissors. A woman can cut the tie of a man, but she must give him a kiss and a shot of alcohol. I didnít get to see a lot of this type of action, but Pat showed up in a cheetah print suit and we hit a few bars where we drank, sang unrecognizable songs, and had conga lines going throughout the bar. I woke up early for the 9 hour flight back home.

DATELINE: FRASER, MICHIGAN

Husband and wife Jim and Mary Thompson were shopping at Meijer. Jim picked up a case of Budweiser and put it in the cart. "What do you think you're doing?" asked Mary. "They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans" he replied. "Put them back, we can't afford them", demanded Mary. They carried on with their shopping. A few aisles farther on, Mary picked up a $20 jar of face cream and put it in the basket. "What do you think you're doing?" asked Jim. "It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful," replied Mary. Jim retorted, "So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price." That's Jim on Aisle 5...
