The past couple of months have been a whirlwind! Starting in June, we held our annual Roop Brothers Bar/Woodland Cigar "Knucklehead Open" golf outing. With several teams participating and a 6 pack of beer for each player on the cart, it was a guaranteed good time. Thanks to Chris from Alec Bradley cigars, Josh from Oliva and Leigh from General for participating. We'll do it again next year, the second Thursday in June 2015.
In July, I found myself smoking cigars on the Carnival cruise ship Victory. As we sailed the western Caribbean with the clan from Duck Dynasty, we had to hunt for a place to smoke. The nice thing was, we were only asked to move once. Barb and Tim Dodge celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary with us and renewed their vows. My wife and I celebrate 25 years this December, but I let her go ahead and renew her vows early. ( Ha Ha ) The vow renewal service was performed by the oldest of the Robertson boys. After the service, Padron Anniversaries were smoked!
This past weekend, ( August 9th ) we returned from our annual trip to Island 10 fishing retreat. Tim, Eric, Jimmy, myself and Brad, spent the week about 7 hours north of Toronto, Ontario. Several great cigars were smoked and several nice fish were caught. The best part is that several new friendships were made and several friendships renewed. Oh, and I got to meet "Drunk Dave." More on "Drunk Dave" later. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
