Jimmy Warner is recovering from a successful operation at Kingsbury Hospital in
Claremont. He is going to be house bound for at least a month and I am sure would
appreciate some visitors. He will be in hospital for a day or two before he returns home so I
suggest you contact Louise for an update. Visiting Hours are 15h00 to 16h00 and 9h00 to
20h00. On behalf of the Club I would like to wish him a speedy recovery. Ed


We have come to the end of yet another Rotary year; pretty successful I think.

Congratulations to Paul Roux on the way he has led the Club, and for his initiatives, particularly the
Outreach Project which has enabled us to share some of our income with smaller, rural Clubs in
our District. I particularly liked the way he handled meetings and his dry sense of humour, which he
really needed on a few occasions!

Good luck to Peter Rogers. I can assure him that to lead this Club is a pleasure and a privilege
which he will enjoy.

   1. Sergeant Roy Cheek open meeting at 18.45 sharp.
   2. Bill Phillips said Grace.
   3. President Paul Roux did toasts.

           a) John Burdes reminded everyone about the cheque handover/s for the FNB Big
              Walk on Thursday 26th June and appealed for more members to attend due to only
              having eleven on the list as of tonight.
           b) Peter Rogers appealed to whoever was assistant editor to get the minutes to him by
              Friday night before the meeting.
           c) Ken Sturgeon updated the meeting on the status of next years Argus and
              mentioned that due to road works on Main road through Muizenberg and Kalk Bay,
              they might have to divert riders over Boyes Drive or over Ou Kaapse Weg. The
              Argus team is hoping this will not be the case as this is not the ideal route for the

Sergeant Roy Cheek then had his turn at the Sergeant’s spot and had everyone in top form with
his Trivial Pursuit session. It is obvious that he favours certain groups and ignored others!!!!! Good
fun and laughs all round and a job well done.

                                    FOR A LAUGH
A Danish alternative newspaper wondered why Americans would even hold an election based on
the following rationale:

"We in Denmark cannot figure out why you are even bothering to hold an election. On one side,
you have a woman who is a lawyer (Clinton), married to a lawyer. Alternatively, you have a
lawyer (Obama) who is married to a woman who is a lawyer.

On the other side, you have a war hero (McCain) who is married to a good looking woman with big
tits, who owns a beer company.

Is there really a contest there?"


Mike was going to be married to Karen so his father sat him down for a little chat.
 He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off
my pants, handed them to your mother, and said, 'Here - try these on.'
She did and said, 'These are too big. I can't wear them.' I replied,'
Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will.'
Ever since that night, we have never had any problems.' Hmmm,' said Mike.
He thought that might be a good thing to try.
On his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen,' here - try these on.'
She tried them on and said, 'These are too large. They don’t fit me.'
Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will.
I don't want you to ever forget that.'
Then Karen took off her pants and handed them to Mike.
She said,’ Here- you try on mine.'
He did and said, 'I can't get into your pants.'
Karen said, 'Exactly. And if you don't change your smart-ass attitude, you never will.'
