Our clubhouse has withstood the test of a huge dump of snow.  Now, if we just had some heat. Having some windows would be a logical first step I suppose. See it here.
Clubhouse finally painted. ( Well, actually we stained it.) Almost looks like someone lives there now. Wonder if that transient is still in there?   What do you think?  
First sleep-out ends in failure !  Yes, the clubhouse was finally put to the test. After lining the floor with cushions, setting up the TV and VCR, and watching "Signs", it was back in the house by midnight.  Must have thought Jerry was an alien. 
Occasionally, Jerry is released on a day pass and allowed to surf the internet. During a recent session, he encountered this little match-the-tool game, and we can't get him to stop.

Jerry's Tip of the Week:

Cutting SOS pads or steel wool with scissors will actually sharpen them.

Jerry says:  Why would he need sharp SOS pads? But he does admit that using scissors is way better than tearing them with his teeth.

Rgregson: When are your members going to see updated pictures.
Or should I say , a picture. We cannot give our ideas to Jerry when we cannot see his lousy work or how far along he is. If you find a transient* inside give him a hammer as he couldn't be any worse than Jerry. One picture can show a thousand mistakes...
reference to Jerry's recent newsletter where he talks about a latch for the door to keep transients from moving in.

Jerry: The fact is that there really hasn't been a lot of progress to photograph. I keep waiting for members input, but nobody has been posting anything. I'll get some up soon. As soon as I get a digital camera. So go buy a coffee mug so I can afford one.
