Radio Happenings May 9, 2022..

Writing this on Monday, May 9th, 3 PM. Mostly Sunny, temperature a great 69.4, wind out of the South at a sustained 22 mph with gusts up to 33mph according to my Ambient weather station.
Just came in after picking up dead branches and found that my USA flag broke the cord… I did not hear the flapping of Old Glory right after 2:30pm. Anytime the temp reaches a nice temperature, something else happens and I cannot fly my kites… If I tried today, I may have had to tie myself to a tree… OK, I’m not that light..

Brat Barn Fund Raiser
Our fund raiser was at the Brat Barn at the Festival Foods on the West side of
DePere on Saturday, May 7th. Was an event not easily forgotten.
Usually it is the best weekend with the sale of Mother’s Day flowers and brings in the hungry customers..
We lost some 40 minutes of cooking time.. the cooking started off great going through 2 cases of brats in good time… then the grill loaded up with ash—the air could not get under the charcoal. The grill temp dropped to below 150F.. Problem two.. all the brats were super frozen..
  The grating (very thin) under the embers was flat against the ash plate.. In order to stop the customers from leaving for the rest of the day, we pulled the embers off the plate, dumped the ash into an overflowing ash bin and basically started all over..
Although we lost some time and some customers, the fire came up and we ended up selling a total of 6 cases of Brats … not sure how many burgers were sold… Listen to the report at the meeting on Thursday..

     Not to brag, but a lady drove up and handed me $10 without purchasing any product.. Must have been my M&K Club Shirt being displayed on a great model. .hi..
