| Since when does being Audio-Video Captain make you qualified to run a production company. Is there a big call for showin' film strips? -Joe Kumbluvitz|
ED NOTE: You are referring to Bradric Productions, the parent company of The McCarty Metro. And, YES, not only do I run the company with my brothers, but being Safety Boy Captain allows me to cross my employees safely across the street. (and make a little hot cocoa too)
Hey, weren't you that guy that used to walk around Grace Hospital with a bunch of newspapers in a wheelchair trying to sell them to sick people? -Nurse Betty
ED NOTE: Yes I was... And weren't you the nurse that would put 50 cents in the machine, take all the papers out, put them in a wheelchair, and try to sell them to sick people before my brother Danny caught you? BUSTED!!!!
| Apparently someone stole the title of the Cockroach song "Swimming in the Secretarial Pool and made a low budget movie to match. Did you guys get any royalties? Also, Dig out those records ... There is a website selling your record for $34.50. Awaiting my share... -L.S.|
ED NOTE: Coincidence??? I think not!!! An adult film director approached me last year to use our title "Swimming In The Secretarial Pool" for one of his adult movies. I told him he could as long as I could star in it, and I got to write the score for the picture. He took one look at my physical and songwriting attributes, offered me $34.50, and told me never to come back. Hi exact words were " Are you 21? Get outta here!" Of course I took the money and ran!!! Now he's just trying to recoup his losses.

|Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields that go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies. It's a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB. Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as described in Executive Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter; each Stripe is 30 feet wide. This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants, with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers. You can drive by this flag on V Street south of Ocean Ave. in Lompoc, CA! |

July Joke o' The Month
An elderly man lay dying in his bed. In death's agony, he suddenly smells the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookies wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort forced his way down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.
With labored breath, he leaned against the door-frame, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for deaths agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven: there, spread out upon racks on the kitchen table and counters were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.
Was it heaven? Or was it the one final act of love from his devoted wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one final great effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a rumpled posture. His parched lips parted... the wondrous taste of the cookie already in his mouth.
The aged and withered hand , shakingly made its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when it was smacked with a spatula by his wife.
"Stay out of those," she said. "They are for the funeral."

|To All Metro Readers...|
I am going away on vacation for most of July, and I need someone to come over to water my plants while I am gone. I'll be gone for a total of 21 days. The plants are mostly geraniums and begonias. In the hot weather they'll probably need water twice a day. I've attached a photo for your reference, the ladder is in the garage if you need it. Thanks a lot. I'll send you a postcard.

|If Dolly Parton married Tommy Smothers, then went even further back in show business and married Mr. Lucky, then divorced and married Martin Short, then divorced and married football kicker Ray Guy, we could all nod understandingly when we heard, "Dolly Parton Smothers Lucky Short Guy."|
Metro Investment News
If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock a year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original 1,000.
With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.
But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of Beer a year ago, drank all the beer, then returned the cans for a refund at an aluminum recycling center, you would have had $214.
Based on the above information, current investment advice is drink heavily and recycle. It's called the 401-Keg Plan.
