With This Ring<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

An older man walked<br />

into a jewelry store one<br />

Friday with his beautiful<br />

young girlfriend at his<br />

side.<br />

A journey of a hundred miles starts with an argument over how to load the car.<br />

Providing a warm and comfortable<br />

home for our residents.<br />

The jeweler looked<br />

through his stock and<br />

brought out a $5000 ring<br />

and showed it to him.<br />

The old man said, “I<br />

don’t think you understand,<br />

I want something<br />

very special.”<br />

At that statement, the<br />

jeweler went to his special<br />

stock and brought<br />

another ring over.<br />

“Here’s a stunning ring<br />

at only $40,000”, the<br />

jeweler said.<br />

The young lady’s eyes<br />

sparkled and her whole<br />

body trembled with<br />

excitement.<br />

The old man seeing<br />

this said, “We’ll take it”.<br />

The jeweler asked how<br />

payment would be made<br />

and the old man stated<br />

he would pay by check.<br />

“I know you need to<br />

make sure my check<br />

is good, so I’ll write it<br />

now and you can call<br />

the bank on Monday to<br />

verify the funds and I’ll<br />

pick up the ring Monday<br />

afternoon,” he said.<br />

Monday morning a mad<br />

jeweler phoned the old<br />

man.<br />

“There’s no money in<br />

that account!”<br />

“I know”, said the old<br />

man. “But can you<br />

imagine the weekend I<br />

just had?”<br />

Pursuit<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

A group of 100 people<br />

were attending a<br />

seminar.The speaker<br />

stopped and decided<br />

to do a group activity.<br />

He started giving each<br />

person a balloon. Each<br />

person was then asked<br />

to write their name on<br />

it using a marker. Then<br />

all the balloons were<br />

collected and put in<br />

another room.<br />

After a few minutes the<br />

people were let into<br />

that room and asked to<br />

find the balloon which<br />

had their name written<br />

on it in 5 minutes.<br />

Everyone frantically<br />

searched for their<br />

name, colliding with<br />

each other, pushing<br />

around others causing<br />

utter chaos. At the end<br />

of 5 minutes, only few<br />

had found their own<br />

balloon.<br />

The speaker then<br />

asked each person to<br />

randomly collect a balloon<br />

and give it to the<br />

person whose name<br />

was written on it. Within<br />

minutes everyone<br />

had their own balloon.<br />

The speaker then<br />

began, “This is happening<br />

in our lives.<br />

Everyone is frantically<br />

looking for happiness,<br />

not knowing where<br />

it is. Our happiness<br />

lies in the happiness<br />

of other people. Give<br />

them happiness; you<br />

will get your own happiness<br />

in return.”<br />

What Are The<br />

Chances?<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

One sunny day, two<br />

men were sitting in a<br />

pub drinking pints of<br />

lager, when one turned<br />

to the other and said,<br />

“You see that man<br />

over there? He looks<br />

just like me! I think I’m<br />

gonna go over there<br />

and talk to him”.<br />

So, he went over to the<br />

man and tapped him<br />

on the shoulder.<br />

“Excuse me, sir,” he<br />

started, “but I noticed<br />

you look just like me!”<br />

The second man<br />

turned around and<br />

said, “Yeah, I noticed<br />

the same thing, where<br />

you from?”<br />

“I’m from Minot,” the<br />

man said.<br />

Stunned, the second<br />

man said, “Me too!<br />

What street do you live<br />

on?”<br />

“McCarthy Street,” the<br />

first man replied. “Me<br />

too! What number is<br />

it?”<br />

15th Anniversary Party<br />

at Royal Oak Room<br />

Bert Asselin<br />

& Jenn Demers<br />

Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.<br />

Testimonial<br />

My husband and I are the parents of<br />

two children that have been receiving<br />

lessons from Main Street Music for<br />

about 10 years. Both of our children<br />

have excelled under the excellent<br />

lessons provided by their<br />

teacher Steve Grenier.<br />

Our family has recently experienced<br />

major health issues that have led us to<br />

mounting medical bills. This was leading<br />

us to making cuts in spending effectively<br />

impacting the children’s lessons.<br />

Without hesitation, Steve stepped in<br />

and offered to help. He explained to us<br />

that this was why the Main Street Music<br />

Lessons/Roger Renaud scholarship<br />

was enacted. Steve reached out to<br />

his Facebook community and with the<br />

generosity of others he was able to<br />

provide lessons for our kids allowing<br />

us to get back on our feet.<br />

Our family wants to deeply thank<br />

M.S.M.L./R. Renaud Scholarship fund.<br />

We sincerely thank the individuals who<br />

provided the donations that make the<br />

scholarship possible. We would also<br />

like to recognize Steve for his sincere<br />

thoughtfulness in helping our family<br />

by recognizing us for the M.S.M.L./R.<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

There was an engineer<br />

who had an exceptional<br />

gift for fixing all things<br />

mechanical after serving<br />

his company loyally<br />

for over 30 years, he<br />

happily retired.<br />

A few years later the<br />

company contacted him<br />

regarding a seemingly<br />

impossible problem<br />

they were having with<br />

one of their multimillion<br />

dollar machines. They<br />

had tried everything<br />

and everyone else to<br />

get the machine to<br />

work but to no avail.<br />

In desperation, they<br />

called on the retired<br />

engineer who had<br />

solved so many of their<br />

problems in the past.<br />

Join us on the Golf C<br />

before for our sile<br />

featuring sp<br />

He spent a day studying<br />

the huge machine.<br />

At the end of the day,<br />

he marked a small “x”<br />

in chalk on a particular<br />

component of the machine<br />

and stated, “This<br />

is where your problem<br />

is.”<br />

The part was replaced<br />

and the machine<br />

worked perfectly again.<br />

Let’s Bet<br />

Submitted by Pam Ashby<br />

Patty and Morgan were<br />

watching a John Wayne<br />

movie.<br />

Patty said to Morgan,<br />

“I bet you five dollars<br />

John Wayne falls off<br />

this horse and the<br />

horse goes over the<br />

cliff.”<br />

Morgan replied, “Ok<br />

Patty.”<br />

So there they are,<br />

watching the film and<br />

John Wayne falls off<br />

the horse and the horse<br />

goes over the cliff.<br />

Patty turns aaround<br />

to Morgan, “I told you<br />

what would happen.”<br />

Morgan said, “You’re<br />

right Patty, here’s your<br />

five dollars.”<br />

Patty thinks, and at the<br />

end of the film says,<br />

“I feel pretty bad here,<br />

Morgan.”<br />

“Why is that Patty?”<br />

asks Morgan.<br />

“Because I’ve seen<br />

this film before,” Patty<br />

replies.<br />

Morgan says, “So have<br />

I, but I didn’t expect<br />

him to make the same<br />

mistake twice.”<br />

In a world full of roses, stand out like a dandelion in the middle of a green, plush lawn!


Is marriage just two people taking turns mashing the trash down in hopes<br />

of the other one emptying the bin?<br />

Romeo Stebbins<br />

“The definition of watchful is:<br />

‘engaged in or accustomed to close<br />

observation.’ Well, Romeo has<br />

been the watchful eye and ears of<br />

Roopers for over a decade.<br />

He has been the grunt, the leader,<br />

and the dynamic personality of the<br />

301 Main St Auburn location for<br />

over 12 years.<br />

He puts smiles and laughs on peoples’<br />

faces when they enter. Romeo<br />

is a blessing to our culture and is<br />

an example of loyalty, courage and<br />

compassion. Well deserved<br />

Rome-Dawg we are proud and love<br />

you!!”<br />

“SHE WAS HELPFUL, INSIGHTFUL AND A HARD WORKER. Very knowledgeable of the industry<br />

and was able to clearly explain any questions I had with the process. Whenever there was an issue that<br />

came up she was always on top of it, and things were resolved in a timely manner. She was always on<br />

time, and was very patient with me as I was looking at different properties. I never felt forced to put an<br />

offer on anything. When I finally found a home she was great during the negotiation process, and was<br />

able to get me to close on the home super fast! Anytime something came up, I was confident we would have<br />

an answer that day.Cindy was great, I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market for buying/<br />

selling a home.” — Michael G Norton<br />
