MINUTES of the 1st "B" CLUB MEETING


B club 2
Originally uploaded by Tonja Owens
This meeting was called together by member, Jean, who said, "I'm heading south, so you better jump at this chance!" Fellow members, Kat and Tonja, eager to be given voting priviledges, and just being good, all- around girls, proceeded...with haste...and began preparations for the meeting. Plans were made for the opening gavel to sound at 3:00...and at 3:10...it sounded loud and clear. ... Well, maybe not a gavel, but a lot of excited female squealing and jumping about. All this was watched...at a distance...by our own hero/service man...Ray...standing at attention or at ease or something...it just looked very official and military like. And another gentleman who just looked on in amazement...and amusement.

Eager to begin the official meeting, the 2 gentlemen were hastily send off on their merry way...they SAID they were going to CHURCH!
But that has yet to be documented. However they did run into a man named Hemingway.

But, back to club news. The 3 members in attendance...parched of throat as they were, proceeded into the bar . Now, gentlewomen, never fear. We sat right by the door and only partook of diet cherry coke...and posed for several pictures. This first session lasted about 2 hours, and then our need for nourishment began to call. We made a quick trip to the nearest eating establishment , secured an out of the way booth (so as not to disturb others), ordered, and began Session 2. We learned much from this 2 hour session: the need for organization, the benefits and pitfalls of dieting, and the dangers of consuming too many sugar free candies. A near disaster was averted when Jean realized she had left important paraphanelia on the table and was able to retrieve it quickly. Hopefull no evidence was lost. Session 3 commenced in the lobby area of the hotel and rounded out the evening. Much conversation was shared by the 3 in attendance, along with a few tears, and lots of laughs.
Jean's chaperone came and retrieved her and settled her safely back in her room, and Tonja and Kat escorted each other up to their
room.
A learning session for the computer challenged Tonja was planned, but alas the computer genius Kat was only able to impart a tiny amount of knowledge, because the internet connection was faulty. That's what the genius said, the dummy just thought the computer was broken. Sleep came after much laughing and silliness, and a short flip-flop fashion show...very short! Session 4 bagan over breakfast. Jean was in absentia, but was contacted via phone for her 2 cents worth. Plans were made to hold the second meeting soon in hopes that more of the members(YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!) can be in attendance. Thus ended the meeting. All arrived home safely, with warm memories and cute pictures!
And a little Pennsylvania chocolate!

Minutes respectfully submitted: September 3, 2007.

Tonja...you are just HILARIOUS! Where you get that sense of humor and delivery, I don't know, but I DO love it! I think you need to be the 'official' minute-keeper, but of course, being 'in absencia,' does that vote count? I'm thinking the others will agree! Thanks for such a funny recap. I love it.

Musicaljean said...

And I agree with the minutes too and say "aye"!!

When we got home in the wee hours of the night I did two things before I went to bed, actually three. I checked this blog and Kat's blog and got some good laughs. Then I posted my quick "we're home". Now after a short night of sleep, I need to hurry get ready for school.

You all look like you had so much fun. I also commented to Kat that you must have sent a "board memo" about the dress code, as you all have on black/white. ha!

I used to live in Holt (which is in north Okaloosa County in Florida - way up above Destin). We moved to Texas 2 years ago. This is one of the very few, extremely rare times when I wish we still lived there! I could have come to the meeting, too. Geez - the things you miss out on, huh? Sounds like ya'll had a great, great time, though!
