A Visit to Waverly, Iowa

A Visit to Waverly, Iowa
Shortarmguy Diary Update for May 29, 2011


For Memorial Day Weekend, we drove down to Waverly, Iowa to see our old friend, Ron "Sugarman" Myers and his lovely family.  They recently moved here and have a beautiful new house that we were just dying to see.  They even let us inside which was nice.



The reason for their move was because Ron recently accepted a new job as Deputy Sheriff in Black Hawk County.  He just graduated from the police academy a few weeks ago and was tops in his class for driving skills and 4th in shooting.  We're real proud of him, but are also a little nervous to be around him since he now has the authority to put us in jail.

   
Krazy Kory also brought his family to town to spend the weekend with us.  Luckily for the rest of us, Kory is not an officer of the law.  Because if that were to happen it would mean our society has fallen into an unrecoverable state of anarchy.


The sun was shining so we headed to the Waverly Municipal Golf Course to hit some balls.  We have a lot of balls between us.


We used to get in a lot of trouble on golf courses.  But we can't do that kind of stuff any more since Ron has gone legitimate.  So now if things get a little out of control, Ron takes charge of things and beats the offender with his golf club.  Jason gets hit a lot.



I played in a foursome with the other men, while Miss Sheri took the boys to play in a group ahead of us.  The little guys are starting to get pretty good on the links!!


While in Waverly, we thought it would be a nice idea to stop by Miss Sheri's Alma Mater, Wartburg College, and tour the campus.  They sure do have nice bells here!

We stopped by the Music Building where I was shocked to discover that they actually had two pictures of Miss Sheri hanging on the wall near the choir room.  And these were like literally the only two pictures on that wall!!  I guess she really made an impression while she was at college for them to keep those pictures after all this time.  I mean, it's been like 50 years since she went to college there! 



This is where Miss Sheri lived on campus.  We didn't see any pictures of her here, but I'm sure they're around.


We spent Saturday night re-visiting many of Miss Sheri's old college hangouts.


We did have to follow one of our gang's oldest rules, though.  When Jason starts taking his clothes off on the dance floor, it's time to go home.
