James is 50!

Still young, virile and hunting for fun.|Special to the Daily|

Howdy and welcome to Town Talk, the column that agrees with George Carlin when he asks the question, “When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?”

Movin’ straight into it.

Snowboard coaches needed

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

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.

Idea wild

Wine and dine on the wild side. Idea Wild raises money to buy gear for biologists who are working to maintain the planet’s biodiversity. It’s great work, and we just have one planet. Be part of it. Dec. 6 at Vail’s Savory Inn, they’re hosting “Wine and Dine on the Wild Side.” The evening’s exotic fanfare features live animals, costumed servers, a silent auction, a red snapper entree, and stunning paintings by international wildlife artist D. Arthur Wilson. For reservations, call 331-9824.

Your joke du jour

A pompous Baptist minister was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Oklahoma. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were being taken. The cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and placed

before him.

The flight attendant then asked the minister if he would like a drink. He replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by a brazen hussy than let liquor touch my lips.”

The cowboy handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “I didn’t know we had a choice.”
