GAAM's Magic & Money Machine

A Magical Fall Picnic from GAAM
On this past Saturday we went to the picnic sponsored by our investment firm, GAAM (Gilbert Advanced Asset Management). The theme of the picnic this year was MAGIC. We took Kara and Zachary and we all had a great time! After some fun games for the kids, and lunch we had a magic show. The following picture is scan of the picture they took of us on arrival.

After the magic show GAAM drew 5 names of the lucky people (all adults) to get to try for loot in the GAAM Money Machine. We did not get picked. But after the lucky 5 got their turn, they decided to select a girl and boy to get a chance in the money machine. A friend of Kara, Morgan Wilmoth, was the girl that got selected. Then when they picked a boy, it was Zachary! Check out this short video of him in the money machine.

Zachary snagged twenty-two dollars and he was one happy boy. He clutched that money tightly the rest of the day.

We had a great time!

Joke of the Day
A Retiree's Tale...
The other day I went downtown to run a few errands. I went into the local coffee shop for a snack. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was this cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. His insensitivity annoyed me, so I called him a 'Nazi.'

He glared at me and then wrote out another ticket for having worn tires.

So I proceeded to call him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.'

He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket when I called him a moron in blue. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I talked back to him the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't really care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had one of those bumper stickers that said, "Obama in '08". I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. The doctor tells me that it's important to my health.
