Bring back T.K.’s stuff
A bunch of you people have a bunch T.K.’s furniture and personal stuff. It was in a front yard on the east side of U.S. Highway 24, past Lionshead Park in Minturn, just before the gas station. While T.K. and his pal were returning with a truck to put it in a storage unit, a bunch of you swooped in and grabbed it – apparently thinking it was free for the taking.
It was not.
It took about five minutes just to run off the people who were taking T.K.’s furniture. Contact 390-8308. And if you happen to find a gray Siemens cell phone that wandered off about that time, bring it back, too. You can leave a message in either English or Spanish.
Coed Inner Tube water polo
It’s back! Inner Tube Water Polo is almost the most fun you can have while using latex – if you know what we mean and we think you do. It’s at least as much a sport as anything you’ll find in the X Games, and way more fun than getting road rash from street luge. You need three women and four men for your team. Registration must be received prior to the organizational meeting that will be held at 5:15 p.m. Feb 13, in the lobby of the Avon Recreation Center. This league is limited to eight teams and will run for nine weeks. Games are Mondays, Feb. 24 through March 31. Call the Avon Recreation Center at 748-4060, 748-8293 or visit http://www.avon.org.
Hammerin’ for Habitat
Habitat for Humanity’s Massive Garage Sale is 8 a.m., Feb. 1. There’s no way to give you directions, so just drive to Eagle on the appointed day and follow the signs. They have lots of plumbing fixtures and fittings, electrical fittings and fixtures, bedding, appliances, and a bunch of household items. They had a garage sale in October, which set new outdoor records for putting people together with cool stuff. Call 748-6718 for more info.
They’re also collecting used hammers to build houses, which is what Habitat for Humanity does. To donate your used hammers, bring ’em to the garage sale, along with your check book.
A well-loved man
The Titans of Town Talk want to tell our spiral arm of the universe about their Reason for Living. She accompanied The Titans to Saturday’s Big Beer, Belgians and Barleywines festival in Vail Village, then drove his inebriated butt home afterward (she didn’t drink a drop). Not only that, but she fed him and let him pick the movies – although “The Perfect Storm” might not have been the best choice for someone suffering from advanced stages of nausea and motion sickness – yet another example of alcohol’s ability to impair judgement.
That’s it. Until tomorrow remember that love is a verb.
Among Vail’s volunteers, we tracked down Bob “Buckwheat” Buckley, Tony White and Brooke Franke Gagnon. They all said it was tough, that they loved it and suggested that if you try it you’ll love it too.
