Sixty Seven Honeywell and Sperry Retirees had a great day at Turf Paradise. Some of the attendees did a good job of picking the winners, but I think the majority of us won a few and lost a few. The luncheon format was change this year to a buffet which was abundant and delicious. Coincidentally, the trainer of the winning horse in the Honeywell/Sperry Race, is the husband of a Sperry Retiree.
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.
The above 8 guys and I are getting older. Getting under that sink or cramped down to get that electrical outlet is a bit more difficult. We do about sixty (60) jobs in a year and wouldn't you like to help? Call the above number if you choose to participate in all our GLORY. Thank you, Clint Langford.
