Friday afternoon Hot Tub Jimmy and I became the Pennsylvania Posse and made our debut on the Shannon Burke radio show, where Curtis has a weekly segment. It went much better than when I was on in January, when I broke the microphone and was barred from the station.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Hot Tub Jimmy decided to forego being an Amazing Race contestant, and opted for a week-long road trip to Savannah, Orlando, Tampa, Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral. Since his cat, the Famous Grouser (seen here napping), wasn't very social, he invited me along on his trip. The following chronicles some of the highlights.

Remember, next week it's my turn for vacation, so you'll have a substitute host. Chris Ivey is unable to fill in, so I've recruited former Simpsons trivia co-host Chris Weaver (see pic above). Please give him/her all the respect that you would give a substitute teacher. On second thought...
P.S. Next week's themes are both baseball oriented: the Pirates and the Orioles.
Margie and her boy toy were back in fine form, and back in their traditional two-top by the toidy. I mistakenly announced them as the first-place winners, but they graciously pointed out my need for stronger bifocals, and dropped to second. Thanks, guys.

Our Relay for Life team once again competed in the Midnight Madness contest. We did a skit on the dangers of not wearing sunscreen, complete with a song ("My Sunblock's Gone," sung to the tune of "My Boyfriend's Back) and six beautiful chorus girls. If the crowd response counted for anything, we would've won hands down.. Here I am seen in shock at the judges' verdict.
The Relay trivia show at 7:30 A.M. was a much more pleasant experience. 12 teams competed, along with many of the walkers. The Rowdy Rankins one-man team led the entire time until the picture round did him in. That's when Pat's Army and The Fulton Bank-Penn Square team came from behind to take second and first.
Many thanks for Darryl Bloom's support and to the American Cancer Society for supplying prizes. We're going to make this an annual event, so hopefully we'll see you next year. And thanks to all who contributed to the Relay this year!
