Nobody asked us, but …Here’s to a healthy and happy 2011

Carolyn Tate & Maizie Harris Jesse
For the Nevada Appeal

A new year coming up … may it be a good one for all of us. Jonni Moon celebrates her birthday today on the “Feast of Stephen,” (remember “Good King Wenseslas walked out…”) (Carolyn erred and had her down for last month), so she would appreciate more presents. Karen Hinton and Margaret Montes also are celebrating their natal days, while Susie and Pete Lusich are celebrating their first anniversary. Congrats. A belated HB to Rose Ascuaga … C says she’s a saint for putting up with that devilish John.

And on the sad side, Leah Chiara, Fr. William Avila and Howard Landis passed away this month. Our deepest condolences to their families and friends.

Bruce Smith found this one on the Internet: “While creating husbands, God promised women that good and ideal ones would be found in all corners of the world. And then he made the Earth round. That God … he’s such a joker.”

Proscenium Players, Inc. will present a murder-mystery dinner, “Eat, Drink and Be Murdered,” at the Gold Dust West on Jan. 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29. Doors open at 6 p.m. with a no-host bar, and an Irish dinner is served at 6:30. Tickets are $35 General, and $32 for PPI, GDW Players Club, seniors and students. This is an hysterical feud between two Irish families regarding a secret whiskey recipe, and you are asked to help solve the mystery. Call Carla Wilson at 781-0664 for information or group seating. You also can go to http://www.showtix4u.com and buy tickets. They must be purchased in advance. Lot’s of fun.

Nichole Hardeman will be home for Christmas. She was just presented the “Blue Jacket” award for excellence at NAS Annapolis. Quite a feat. It’s nice to see our service men and women commended for their work.

How about those UConn ladies? A new record of 89 straight wins and going strong. They just broke the UCLA men’s record under John Wooden, and deserve our congratulations. Quite the feat. Congratulations, also, to Robin Williamson, our outgoing supervisor, who served Carson City so ably, so long. Good luck in whatever you do.

Great news for the “eating out.” Walley’s in Genoa has reopened as “Walley’s 1862,” and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. They have all kinds of interesting food on the menu, and reservations can be made at 1-888-737-1862. Worth a tasty try per some NDOT employees.

Ken Fraser sent us this one from the Internet: “After their baby was born, the father ran to the obstetrician and said, ‘She has red hair … she can’t possibly be mine. All our family has black hair.’ ‘Nonsense,’ the doctor said. ‘One of your ancestors may have contributed red hair to the gene pool.’ ‘That can’t be,’ said the man. ‘Well,’ said the doctor, ‘how often do you have sex?’ The man looked a little ashamed. ‘Because I’ve been working so hard, about once every 2-3 months.’ ‘Well, there you have it,’ the doctor said confidently, ‘it’s rust!'”

Happy New Year to you all.
