Whether you swim or not Saturday you are welcome to our season ending celebration "Krufest" at Kahuna's.  Here is his invitation to all:

I hope you can stop by my house Saturday afternoon. The plan is, swim at noon, then head over to my house for a cookout. Don't worry, "She Who Must Not Be Named" is happy to hear your coming over. Our address is 3529 N. Frederick Avenue, Shorewood. If you are not swimming I would expect people will be arriving at my house between 1 and 1:30. We'll fire up the grill, and provide hamburgers, brats, buns, chips, dip, veggies, a big green salad, beer, wine, mineral water and soda. Spouses, significant others and kids welcome. Please bring something to share. You might also want to bring a lawn chair, as I'm a bit short of that type of chair. I don't think it's going to rain, but I think it could be cool that day. So I have a better idea of how much stuff to buy the evening before, if you believe you are likely to be able to join us on Saturday, please send a text message to my cell no., 414.418.4469, telling me whether you plan on coming, and how many others you are bringing with you. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Saturday!

That nickname just doesn't work for me. There has to be some connecting story behind it. Maybe I could go the old Prince route and just be a symbol?

Showgirl said...

Nice try, Vern.

Patriarch said...

I agree with you Vern. There's no connection, other than the lunatic ravings of a beer soaked Kahuna. But if you want a different nickname you have to give us something to work with. Or Nancy does.

How about "Handymsn Hank"? :)

Hey Vern:

Ideas for you for Ted's Halloween Party:

(Fyi, quickest way to make a nickname stick is to say you're against it.)

Kahuna said...

Fyi, are we letting the streak end at 100?

rsm said...

I do find him kinda handy. and handsome.

Mark MeyerRD said...

Well, I was for it before I was against it. Vern must have been preparing for his rock swim.

I do seem to have this natural ability to restore abused and traumatized bicycles that juveniles ride. That's right, the bike whisperer. Although Captn's suggestion fits as well. Or Mr. Fixit.

Gumdrop said...

Looks like another good Boogie Board day!

Kahuna said...

Fyi, there will be hot cider, coffee and other warm drinks, and a backyard fire at my place today. Looking forward to seeing as many of you (and friends and relations) who can stop by, even if it's only for a quick bite and/or bear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU5cMZymSr0

I mean beer.
