or "the Evil One", has officially begun her downward spiral into old-age. The
Ho Down was informed by a reliable source, who wishes to remain anonymous, that

the golf course. Laurel Faye replied, "because our golf date is on Friday
silly!". Struggling with the dilemma of either bursting out with laughter or
thinking maybe its time to give "The Home" a call and book a room, Kathy
replied, "Coog! It IS Friday!". Laurel in a state of disbelief and confusion
replied, "Really?". Kathy, used to these mental lapses, golfed alone and was
heard muttering around the golf course, "I really have to get the number for
