Addison

The Baptist Cowgirl

A cowgirl, who is visiting Texas from Arkansas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. She sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When she finishes them, she comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender approaches and tells the cowgirl, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."

The cowgirl replies, "Well, you see, I have two sisters. One is in Australia, the other is in Dublin. When we all left our home in Arkansas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my sisters and one for myself."

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

The cowgirl becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. She orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

One day, she comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When she comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."

The cowgirl looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in her eyes and she laughs.

"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," she explains, "It's just that my husband and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

"Hasn't affected my sisters though."

Addison makes it to NYC

Well in so many words...6 of them to be exact. I was quoted recently in an article by the Columbia University News Service about DL. You can read it here "Social club offers liberal politics and pints"

Also thanks to everyone who came to our Mardi Gras party. Get ready for St Pattys Day next!

Early voting

Just a reminder to everyone, early voting for the primary runs Feb 21st through March 3rd. So get your vote on early! Then you dont have to run like a chicken with its head cut off on March 7th trying to vote.

Also make sure to go to your precinct caucaus on the 7th when the polls close. You can become a delegate to your county convention this way. Just show up and be known. Get involved!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Since Mardi Gras falls on Feb 28th this year, we've decided we are going to have a Mardi Gras party at our Feb 16th meeting. So be sure to come out and celebrate Fat Tuesday at The Quarter. Beads, king cake, and more!

No candidate forum

I had previously sent an email inviting everyone to a forum for candidates. The bar has decided against allowing candidates to use a microphone. So, the forum itself is cancelled. The meeting is still on. So if you all want to still attend, and mingle with the members in a social setting, you are always more than welcome. Sorry for any misunderstandings.
