Our anniversary party is Tuesday, August 8.
Thanks go out to Colleen, Dick, Rob, and Dave, who already kicked in their $6 for cake, ice cream, etc. If you're coming to the party, please bring $6
(per person) next week. If you plan to be at the party, but you're not coming before then, you can e-mail me to let me know, and I'll lay out the $6 for you, and you can pay me when I see you.

Kia joined the 1600 club. #6:
Jeff had a major upset over Agnes. #7: Bob was PREACHY for 105 points.
#8: Jon had a 504 game.
We had five puns. The first two are from Bob. The next three are from Jon, Dave, and Colleen, respectively. While our "puns" are rarely actual puns (anymore), Colleen's actually is one.

Kia thought she had iced the game when she played INVOLVER, taking a big lead, and the last of the tiles. However, Agnes bingoed out with IONIZERS to
"charge" ahead and steal the win.
#11: Two of this week's Top Bingos are CARANGID and LEMPIRA. In the unlikely event that these words are not part of your everyday vocabulary, here's what they are:

Around the middle of
January, 2012, it occurred to me that I should probably save our TOP
