Dealing with disappointment?

newspaperThe Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce & Industry held its annual meeting Tuesday night.

And I have two observations:

  • Jon Stetson
    Jon Stetson

    Jon Stetson was the best after-dinner speaker I’ve ever seen at this particular banquet. I don’t know how he did the things he did, but I’m very glad he did not call on me to reveal the dark secrets kept hidden inside my bald head.

  • A table mate teased me about excessive blogging, saying she only reads some of this nonsense because she doesn’t have enough time to read all of it.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t think I had been posting that much stuff here. But my dinner companion is in luck because it may take at least a few days to recover from the disappointment I feel today. And that may mean no more blogging for a while.

Why am I so blue?

Well, I’m a little behind in my reading so I didn’t realize until today that the local newspaper on Tuesday published the photo of Muscatine Mayor DeWayne Hopkins shown here at the upper right. He was pictured with Eugene Newton and Jeanne Pankow.

me and hoppiI thought for sure this picture of, from the right, Pankow, Hopins and some big, dumb guy would be the one to get published.

Maybe next time.
