What's In This Month's Issue
- Hurricane Charley
The Metro sent reporters Steve, Kristen & Megan into the eye of the hurricane, but they report the hurricane was no match for what happened in the aftermath.
Margaret & Brad return from Australia with their photo gallery. ED NOTE: I lowered the number of pictures from 687 down to 66 for the web. You can see all the photos in a scrapbook coming soon.
- Jerry's World
Jerry takes a look back when kids would talk about their schools and say the magic words, "...AND I LOVED IT!"
- Dan McCarty Golf Classic
The final numbers are in, and the 2004 DMGC turned out to be the most successful outing ever.
- AND MUCH MUCH MORE
Including the latest news, birthdays, anniversaries, Peanut & Jocko, a Quiz, and of course, ramblings from the McCarty Metro reporters.
Here's a little Australian souvenir for you. It's called a "Kangaroo Lucky Pouch"
The pouch was first observed by Captain James Cook in 1700 when he observed the aboriginal tribesmen wearing this piece of leather around their neck to carry things. Today, it is considered a good luck charm when people store their valuables in it.
The kangaroos stored their valuables in them (all their family jewels) as it is made from 100% Kangaroo Scrotum.

What Are These Miller Lite Girls Thinking?
Metro Sound Off
Beautifully written article by Jerry Klotz (Van Halen, 2004). I laughed, I cried, I felt ashamed, but most of all I laughed. A wonderful time was had by all......well almost all. See you at the DMGC! -L.Wendt
Last month's quiz (The McCarty scalp challenge) should have been sponsored by Rogain. -Raiff
I think Larry was offended. Don't attribute any of this to me since I don't want to be told that I'm hurting the family.
Larry: You asked for some help with your daughters' contestant speeches at the Lebanon Beauty Pageant. Here are some thoughts. Since you're from Tennessee, the following introduction should be a winner:
Amanda: Daddy says I'm the best French kisser.
Lauren: No, Daddy says I'm the best.
(OK, I stole this from National Lampoon's Vacation). When the girls get a chance to talk about themselves and are asked about any special awards or recognition they've received, here's some help:
Lauren: I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.
It has painfully come to mind from almost everyone I know that owns a computer in the last month. Everyone is having some type of trouble or problem with their cpu. And It is just a thought, but in my humble opinion, you would be the perfect person to do some question answering about little tips for keeping everyone's computer in better condition. -RB
I was just thinking that it would be nice to have a MM archive where you could have all of the past issues online and accessible through a menu.
ED NOTE: Your wish is our command. We now have an archive section at the bottom of this page.

|Joke Of The Month|
Maria is a devout Catholic: She gets married and has 17 children. Soon after the last child is born her husband dies. A few weeks later she remarries and over the following years has another 22 children with her second husband. After the last child is born her second husband also dies. Within a month Maria is engaged to be married a third time. Unfortunately she becomes very ill and dies.
At her wake, the priest looks tenderly at Maria as she lies in her coffin, looks up to the heavens and says, "At least, they're finally together." A man standing next to the priest asks, "Excuse me, Father, but do you mean Maria and her first husband, or Maria and her second husband?"
The priest says, "I mean her legs."
Please Note: The Metro prior to February, 2004, was a quarterly newsletter.
