Hole-in-One 7/22/2012

This good looking fella with the white hair just hit a hole-in-one on the 17th Hole at Crystal Lakes Country Club in Hampton, Georgia. After 33 years of playing not-so-serious golf…a miracle occured.  Who would a thunk it.  On top of that, he shot a 73…unbelievable. So the moral to this blog is…Even blind squirrels gotta eat… Keep your feet on the ground and your chin up…and hope like hell someone doesn’t knock you on your keester…keep on trying…sometimes they just “Fall in”         Remember memories should last a lifetime…this one will… Must have been the company…Thanks Randy, Daryl, Chet, Monty, & Lance…we played 2 threesomes…if your counting.

Do you remember this bunch of fun loving guys from “Delta Tau Chi” the academically stellar fraternity of the famed Faber College?

34 years ago?  Wow, to the 50-60 somethings out there, this will bring back some fond memories. 

Library of Congress sez “Animal House” was Culturally Significant…how appropriate…!  Can you remember this cast of characters?

Eric “Otter” Stratton, Larry “Pinto” Kroger, Kent “Flounder” Dorfman, “Stork” Daniel Simpson “D-Day” Day, “Hoover”, “Boon” and his main squeeze Katy. 

How about some of the other cast:  Doug Niedermeyer, Greg Marmalard, Mandy Pepperidge, or Babs Jensen, and Chip Diller played by Kevin Bacon

Or maybe even the adults in the movie…Dean Vernon Wormer and wife Marion, Mayor Carmine DePasto and his 13 year old daughter Clorette who was molested by Larry Kroger.

Who could forget the “Double Secret Probation”.  Oh what memories…bearly memories.

Now and Forever…A Georgia Bulldog

Now and Forever…my support goes to the Georgia Bulldogs.  Oh what memories, the Saturday afternoon football games, the friends, the fun of college life, and did I mention the memories. This cute little treasure chest keepsake box can be stuffed with candy, cookies, gift cards, school supplies, or anything to enhance the school experience. Just go to and shop for gift sets, or customized keepsake boxes. Makes a nice “Back to School” gift.


Ever look for that really different gift idea for a family member or friend that is really hard to buy for?  How about a Keepsake Box that can be personalized or customized for that person.  Here is an example of a new category of boxes Bearly Memories is introducing:  These boxes have the state on the top and the words “Growing up in Blank…” You name the city.  This particular box says “Growing up in Fayetteville” on the front of the box.


 The box is 12.5″ x 8″ x 5.25″ tall and has plenty of room for collectibles, photos, baseball cards, and all your important memories from growing up.   You can find this at   The item is CCNB-med

Growing up in Fayetteville


You see Toto…buying a keepsake box from Bearly Memories is really very simple.

1st:  click on the website or go to their main site at  and click on “Shop for a Cause” the big orange button below the picture.

2nd: pick a category…Keepsake Boxes, Golf Gifts, Keepsake Trunks, Decorative, or maybe even Deal of the Day…

3rd: Select a sub-category such as; customized, personalized, pre-printed sayings, or just plain keepsake boxes….most of these fall under the Category heading “Keepsake Boxes”

4th:  If you already know the item # or the name of the box you can just key that into the “Search Box”  That probably should be step 2.5…but you get the point.

5th:  Select the box you would like to purchase either from the “Our Featured Products” or from a Category / Sub-Category…Then just click the Add to Cart button…at this point you will either select the radio button for the type, style, name under the options or fill in the name or saying on the box…it may even say “Personalization or Customization”

6th: A shopping cart box will pop up and ask the question…continue shopping or checkout…click on what you want to do next….if you continue shopping, every time you hit add to cart it keeps a running total in your shopping cart.

7th: Under the item description will be a “View a list of options” it you filled in a name or saying it will show up in a separate window…if everything is OK…proceed to shipping rates.

8th: Under shipping rates: the box gives you an option of in-store pick-up or UPS Ground.  The in-store pick-up is if you are picking it up here at our facility, or someone here is going to deliver to your house locally…usually by a salesperson.  Most keepsake boxes are shipped UPS Ground.  If it asks for a zip code and state…the system will calculate the shipping and handling charges and add them to the price of the goods.  Products that add up to greater than $100.00 for the boxes / accessories SHIP FREE.

9th:  If you are a returning customer please sign in for faster checkout, if a new customer you can either register or checkout anonymously. You can either pay by Paypal (if you have an account) or pay by Credit Card….Visa, MC, Discover, or AMEX.

10th: Checkout page…billing information, shipping information, then hit place order…If you have any trouble with this process please go to contact us page, or call 404 346-1848.  Someone will help you through the process. 

Now that we have done that once…it will be much easier every time you need a unique gift such as a really cool keepsake box for a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or just any-day gift.

Thanks Toto for helping me explain this…
