Preventice maintenance

Howdy and welcome to Town Talk, the column that agrees with the Army’s magazine of preventive maintenance when it says, “A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what’s left of your unit.”

Movin’ right into it.

Negotiating with the

Hormone Hostage

The Hormone Hostage knows that there are days when all a man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his life in his own hands!

This is a handy guide that should be as common as a driver’s license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other.

DANGEROUS: What’s for dinner?

SAFER: Can I help you with dinner?

SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?

SAFER: Gee, you look good in brown.

SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?

SAFER: Could we be over-reacting?

SAFEST: Here’s fifty dollars.

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?

SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.

SAFEST: Can I get you a glass of wine with that?

And our personal favorite…..

DANGEROUS: What did you do all day?

SAFER: I hope you didn’t over do it today.

SAFEST: I’ve always loved you in that robe!

Gentlemen, remember: Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Pancake kids

The Buddy Werner League is ready to cook. They’re running a pancake breakfast at McCoy’s in Beaver Creek, 7:30-10:30 a.m. next Sunday. It’s just your good fortune that the World Cup Super G starts at 11 a.m. Breakfast will cost you $6 a plate, and the plates are big. It’s simple: Just show up, hand over your money and overeat.

Snowboard coaches needed

While in Buddyland, the Buddy Werner League needs a few more snowboard coaches, and they need them in the extremely near future. You get to hang out with great kids almost every Saturday. Tom Atkinson is the Buddy Werner League Leader. Email him at
