John grayFather’s Day this year will be one that John Gray doesn’t forget.  John had an “episode” last week, but didn’t think much of it.  Annie convinced him to go to the ER on Wednesday.  Tests showed that he indeed has blockages in his arteries so he was scheduled for the triple bypass on Father’s Day.

The surgery was successful and John will be in the ICU for 48 hours.  If things continue to go as expected he will probably be going home near the end of the week.

Having an “episode” after the big Memorial Day Pignic is not unusual for most Gluttons, but it’s usually the next day when we feel the effects.  Hats off to the cooks who perhaps contributed to this long lasting epic episode.

Seriously, our thoughts and prayers go out to Jon and we wish him a speedy recovery as he recuperates at home in Florida.

Mike Big Byrd Mathews is winding down his golf trip in Ireland and will be coming home on Wednesday to nearly 100°F temperature after two weeks of highs in the 60’s and near 70°F.  Byrd and his left-hand man, Larry Petersen being the wusses they are, opted for good old Budweiser instead of the local brews in the Irish homeland.  Apparently Larry has coined the phrase, “When in Ireland, it’s only money”.

Bud men

Mike sends along this photo that almost looks more like a painting than a photo of his golfing group taken shortly after one in their group got a hole-in-one at the Royal County Down course.  Of course it wasn’t Mike or Larry that got the hole-in-one.  They played ten rounds of golf on ten different courses.

When they get off the plane and step out into the hot and humid St. Louis weather it’d be nice if someone was there holding a sign saying, “Welcome to Hell”.

Paulsen hospital

Mark Paulsen had a knee replacement replacement on Monday at DePaul Hospital.   Apparently the replacement he already had didn’t take so they replaced the replacement.  After he heals from this surgery (in about a month) he’s going to have the other knee replaced.  Bad knees and no beer. Sucks to be him. Photo courtesy of Mary Halverson

Retired Dan

Dan Sucich who has been counting down the days until his retirement for the last two year or so to anyone who’d listen, made it official Saturday night with his “surprise” retirement party at the club.  A great crowd was on hand to show Dan how much they cared.  And for the free beer and food!  A job well done.  Congratulations Dan!
