 in a monster storm off the cape and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as they were pullin' me out a school of sharks
 appeared and one of 'em bit me leg off". "Blimey!" said the seaman. "What about the hook"? "Ahhhh...", mused the pirate,
 "We were boardin' a trader ship, pistols blastin' and swords swingin' this way and that. In the fracas me hand got chopped
 off." "Blimey!" remarked the seaman. "And how came ye by the eye patch"? "A seagull droppin' fell into me eye", answered the
 pirate. "You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously. "Well..." said the pirate; " it was me first day
 with the hook."

 DBYC’s 11-Year Office Manager trades in
 California for Texas – Jeannine McGovern has just ended
 eleven years of valuable service for Discovery Bay Yacht
 Club. On August 23rd, a successful surprise “Good-Bye”
 luncheon was held for Jeannine with about 50 Long-Time
 Club Members wishing her well on the next chapter for her
 and her husband, Jack. Their planned physical move to
 Texas is November 1st. Jeannine’s last official work day
 was August 30th. Jeannine has been our Office Manager
 handling the club billings, payables, payroll, and being the
 glue between ever changing Boards from year-to-year.
 Jeannine will be sorely missed – she is loved by so many
 that she simply has her own fan club.
 Jeannine – THANK YOU for all your support and dedicated
 effort. We will miss you. I will miss you – especially when it
 comes to reconciling our monthly bank statements !
