Coyote has puppies!
Lucy's dog, Coyote, had four "little shepherdy things" on
Friday, the 23rd. Yeah, only four. "But they're big puppies," says Lucy.
This is the third litter for Lucy's Nightshadow Kennels. And, pursuant to AKC Rule 60609,
the names of these puppies must begin with the letter "c" ("c" being
the third letter of the alphabet, you see). Billy Club humbly offers these
suggestions: Calling All Cars, Cat's Pajamas, Crustaceous Anthropoid, Common Cur, Clubhouse
Chat, Cotton Picker, Coyote Breath and Cricket Smasher. Since Lucy most assuredly
won't use any of our suggestions, maybe you should call Lucy with some suggestions of your
own at 209-???-????.
Jeannie named 4H leader
In a bold political move, Jeannie, mother of two, has taken over as Lathrop's area 4H leader. "Sweeping changes will be made!", Jeannie declared. When Billy Club asked Jeannie what "4H" stands for she said, "That's not important. What's important is that sweeping changes will be made."
Doug goes to Vermont
Billy Club's roving "photoventurer", Doug , phoned our Surfside Way bureau the other night from Washington, D.C. He had just returned to D.C. from Vermont because he had to go all the way to Vermont before he got to any snow, because they've been having a warm spell in D.C., and he really wanted to see some snow before leaving for Florida. Are you following any of this? Anyway, he's probably in Florida by now, playing golf with his old pals from Clearwater.
Tiffany wins race!
Over the weekend, Tiffany and her mom, Jeannie, ran in the one-mile segment of the City of Ripon's prestigious "Almond Blossom Charity Run." Tiffany's aunt Lucy ran in the five-mile segment of the race. And, okay, so Tiffany didn't actually win her race, but if it wasn't for all those people in front of her, she would have. Congratulations, Tiffany!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
"I'm still in Germany and don't plan on returning [to the U.S.]
just yet. Through Doug's inspiration, I plan to visit Dresden, East Germany, where many of
the [redacted] family resided. I doubt if anything will come of it, but it gives me a
wonderful excuse to visit "the most beautiful opera house in the world."
