EPISODE 140 DETAILS
Gift Certificates… Still Good! We want to give a shout-out to the Muehlebach Hotel in Kansas City, MO. Tim and Melinda O’Brien stayed at this hotel the first night of their marriage in 1983. When sifting thru old photos, the groom came upon a gift certificate in a keepsake box from their wedding 40 years ago.
The voucher read, “The Muehlebach Lifetime Honeymoon Certificate” and that “This certifies that anytime you stay at the Muehlebach during your anniversary month, your room rate will be the same as your original honeymoon rate.” The coupon also showed that the O’Briens had paid $38 to stay for one night in Room No. 314 at the Muehlebach Hotel. Upon finding this certificate, Tim O’Brien gave it a 50-50 chance that the hotel now under new management would consider honoring the certificate and decided to contact the hotel located in Downtown Kansas City and surprise his bride 40 years later. Luck was in his favor, the management agreed this was such a neat story. The same room that was then $38 and all the couple could afford for a one-night honeymoon as they were both college students, now holds a nightly rate closer to $250. Congratulations to the O’Briens on 40 years and if you’re passing thru Kansas City and would like to stay there as well as this hotel has quite a bit of history, it was a favorite of President Harry S Truman as well as the Beatles were said to have stayed. If you’re interested too in staying at the historic Muehlebach Hotel, it now operates under the name Kansas City Marriott Downtown.
Australia – An American tourist recently got into a fight with a kangaroo while visiting a Wildlife Park in Australia. The kangaroo had been following a woman and child when the American intervened to ward off the kangaroo. This resulted in the American tourist and the kangaroo getting into a boxing match… with the kangaroo trying to drop-kick the tourist! The woman that had been followed, being a Mom as she is, walked up to the fighting kangaroo, scolding it harshly, causing the kangaroo to stop fighting and scurry off… Guess a Mother’s yell works on more than just the kids!
Texas – A female angler recently ended an excellent day of fishing, walking away with a largemouth bass catch of a lifetime. Lea Anne Powell landed this trophy fish on Ivie Lake near San Angelo, Texas. The International Game & Fish Association (IGFA) certified the largemouth bass weighing in at 12 lbs 3oz as the new World Record for the 12lb line weight class.
According to KETK, Lea Anne Powell’s lunker was caught on 10-pound Seaguar Red Label line and is considered the biggest largemouth bass ever caught for the line class of 12 pounds. Congrats Lea Anne Powell!
Traveling Heads Up.. on this story, and could happen in a number of situations not just the one I’m about to share… Heading to Miami where an exotic dancer was arrested for stealing $62,000 from a potential client. The exotic dancer kept pouring tequila shots down her to be client’s throat. SO as you can imagine the man became so intoxicated that he could not even stand. She then stole the man’s phone and wallet, and she transferred $62,000 total between his Chase, Wells Fargo and American Express accounts!! Police did arrest her, and she tried to claim that the man had authorized the transactions. The exotic dancer has been charged with Theft. So as said earlier, this could happen to anyone if were “over served”; so please when traveling do be aware and be safe.
Coffee Lovers – A recent study released by Columbia University revealed that sipping coffee throughout the day is terrible for the teeth. They say that even thou tooth enamel is the hardest mineralized substance in your body, prolonged exposure to acid and acidic liquids can cause the teeth to demineralize, erode and become more susceptible to cavities.
Best to enjoy that cup of coffee, tea, juice in a single setting then throughout the day!
How To Enjoy The Fourth Of July Outdoors
Luke Combs shared a little wisdom the other day that many of us can take to heart and do so ourselves. Especially in these busy times while we are all burning the night oil it seems – haying or harvesting at all hours, hauling big loads across the country, or working two jobs to make ends meet. Luke Combs being a newer father with another on the way, sat down recently wanting folks to know how something as simple as a picture of his son or a short video of “Home Life” from his wife can completely make his WHOLE day.
As he put it, it’s a serotonin dump and all the hard work is worth it seeing his family grow, laugh and live. Even just a simple video of his little guy bouncing around in a chair, whatever they’re doing and seeing it, knowing he’s thought of too makes everything worth it.
So there ya have it, remember to be doing that with your loved ones. Send those texts, pictures, and videos to those that might not be right there as they’re working or traveling; let them know they are remembered, loved and missed!
