HRC and SRC will once again offer reservations for the play “CABARET” to be held on October 15, 2008 at the Arizona Broadway Theater, 7701
W. Paradise Lane, Peoria. Reservations will be taken by Betty Fennell. So that we can reserve enough tickets (we ran out last time) please call her at 602-439-4344 and reserve your tickets.

This is sure to be a good time, as we visit the tawdry Kit Kat Klub in pre-war Berlin. I’m sure many of us remember the movie version starring Lisa Minnelli and Joel Gray.

Member feedback has been very positive. Members can sign up by contacting us via e-mail at: . Please send your: 1) name, 2) e-mail address, 3) if you wish your e-mail address not published in The Bridge periodically, and 4) if you want “ electronic only ” or both electronic and hard copy.

We can help Honeywell retirees or surviving spouses with fix-it jobs around the house that you are not good at or are unable to do and prevent these jobs from becoming budget busters. The Fixit Guys are Bob, Dick, Gene, Sam, Perry, Matt, Paul, Ed and Clint.

Call us at this number, (602) 765-4466, and leave a clear message containing job information, your name and telephone number. We probably can help and will get back to you as quickly as practical. We furnish the labor at no cost to you; you furnish the cost of the parts.

Please contact the phone number above if you would like to volunteer as a Fix-It Guy or Gal.

Bran Muffins

The couple was 85 years old and had been married for sixty years.  Though they were far from rich they managed to get by because they watched their pennies. Though not young they were both in very good health largely due to the wife's insistence on healthy foods and exercise for the last decade. One day, their good health didn't help when they went on a rare vacation and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven.

They reached the pearly gates and St. Peter escorted them inside.  He took them to a beautiful mansion furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen and waterfall in the master bath.  A maid could be seen hanging their favorite clothes in the closet. They gasped in astonishment when He said, “Welcome to Heaven. This will be your home now.”

The old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost.  “'Why, nothing, remember, this is your reward in Heaven.” The old man looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth.  “'What are the green fees?” grumbled the old man. “'This is heaven,” St. Peter replied. “You can play for free every day.”

Next they went to the Club House and saw the lavish buffet lunch laid out before them, from seafood to steak to exotic deserts, and free flowing beverages. “Don't even ask,” said St. Peter to the man. “This all free for you to enjoy.” The old man looked around and glanced nervously at his wife. “Well, where are the low fat, low cholesterol foods and decaffeinated tea?” he asked. “That's the best part,” St. Peter replied. “You can  eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven!”

The old man pushed, “No gym to work out at?” “Not unless you want to,” was the answer.

“No testing my sugar or blood pressure or...” “Never again. All you do here is enjoy yourself.”

The old man glared at his wife and said, “You and your Bran Muffins. We could have been here ten years ago.”
