Men’s Club Humor by Arnold Miller
MEN’S CLUB HUMOR by Arnold Miller
As St Patrick’s Day approaches, I would like to share a personal experience with you about drinking and driving: As you know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time,
often on the way home after a “social session” with family or friends. Well, two days ago, this happened to me. I was out for an evening with friends and had more than several beers followed by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine and a few vodka shots. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the alcohol limit. That’s when I did something I’ve never done before… I took a taxi home. Sure enough, on the way home there was a police DUI checkpoint, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don’t know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage I don’t know what to do with it. So, anyway, if you want to borrow a taxi, give me a call.
Create a Booklet for Your Family
This is the response to an autobiographical booklet called “Experience is the Best Teacher”. The booklet was written by member, Rudy Schindler and is now in the library of the Temple.
Thank you for thinking of me on my birthday this year and every year. I also want to thank you for writing me your book about your life and your wisdom. I have gotten through most of it and I would love to talk to you about it when I see you on Thanksgiving. Also I will write you when I finish reading it to tell you what I think and ask you any questions I might have. I love reading about our family’s history. It makes me feel more connected to my roots. And reading about you being a young man has given me a good perspective on my life.
I love you, see you soon,
You may want to create a booklet of your own for your family and get the same kind of response from your grandchildren.
Men’s Club is planning to offer any member this opportunity. Paul Feigenbaum has come up with an unusually low cost for any member inclined. You may contact Paul Feigenbaum at 206-1666 for more details.
Our Daily Minyan
Perhaps the one activity at Temple Judea that never takes a vacation is the Minyan. Twice a week, the faithful gather in Smotrich Chapel to maintain the century-old tradition of public worship. More often than not, the core group is joined by those who, in grief, come to praise the Almighty by means of the Mourners Kaddish. Please consider joining us for morning services. Monday and Thursday at 8:30am.
Donate Your Old Car
As most of you know, the sale of cars donated to Temple Judea has been the source of much needed income to our Temple. I put out a request for help in this project and lo an behold, a member of our Men’s Club, Norman Kingston has volunteered to aid me in this endeavor. Thank you Norman! Norman can be reached either through the Temple office or at his home number 679-2216.
Gold for Temple Judea
Men’s Club will cash in your gold for the Temple and we’ll save you the effort to do so. Call Jack Berger 949.829.8270 to arrange it. A little or a lot – broken or not, it sure will help. Please look around in drawers or closets and cash it in for Temple Judea.
