The February 2006 meeting of the DBC was held at the Pink Galleon Pool Hall, Bar and Grill in South St. Louis, MO.  Though this was just a few short steps from the front porch of the infamous BooBash Castle, Julie chose to save wear and tear on her lithe appendages and graciously accepted our offer to cart her to said destination. The meeting was originally scheduled at Frailey’s Bar and Grill but upon inspection, and after taking note of the rather subdued atmosphere, it was quickly decided the Pink Galleon would be more conducive to the special needs of the DBC.  Cell phones were manned, calls were made and members were informed of the change. 

The Pink Galleon was a lively, happenin’ joint, where the beer was frosty and nachos and cheese abounded freely.  Luckily this offset the extremely slow waitresses and loud music enough to ensure an overall enjoyable evening.  Though the BooBash’s had been neighbors of the Pink Galleon for many years, up until this night they (or at least Julie) had never darkened its door.  She can offer no good explanation for this but vows to make amends in the coming months.

Laura, Julie and Elaine had barely settled in when Matt and Jeannette joined them some minutes before 7:00.  It didn’t take long for Nancy and Teresa to arrive and as we always say, 7’s a party, and so we did.  Mark and Fred kept us waiting until approximately 9 bells and the meeting was finally called to order at 9:10 p.m.    Julie wanted us to take it back because Laura gaveled and hence it was not considered official.  Nancy conceded and officially gaveled the meeting to order at 9:10.20

Our Inspirational Guru delivered the following inspirational message.  After hearing this inspirational message, we were all inspired.

"Sometimes the beauty of the world is so overwhelming, I just want to throw back my head and gargle.  Just gargle and gargle, and I don't care who hears me, because I am beautiful."

Meeting Highlights & Conversation Recaps:

  • These tables are very high – What is the purpose of them?  Are they to hold up drunks?  It doesn’t make sense.
  • Ornaments
  • Jeannette in her infinite wisdom has solved the table dilemma and figured out why they are so high.  Thank you O wise woman.
  • Matt loves Mom the most.
  • Nancy is filled with Christmas spirit
  • Jeannette is a go-er and certainly deserves some beads
  • Laura and Teresa are gone again!
  • Julie will not give up sweets this year for lent – not this year or ever again – no way, no how.
  • Matt can’t hear, but smiles politely anyway
  • Jeannette tells Julie a secret
  • Nancy looks pensive and wants to be included in on Jeannette’s secret.
  • Elaine’s pen is at the ready
  • Won’t someone do something noteworthy?
  • No one is talking to Elaine
  • Now Nancy is talking to Elaine.
  • What is Nancy rambling on about?
  • Teresa has returned, but Laura has not
  • It’s 7:50 and Mark and Fred aren’t here yet
  • Clare and Mark can’t come because their dog Jack is throwing up.
  • Clare and Mark must really love their dog Jack.
  • Elaine wishes she could hear what Jeannette is saying to Julie
  • Jeannette is becoming very animated while telling her secret story
  • Do Clare and Mark dress Jack up in little dog outfits?
  • Our waitress is a Christian according to the tattoo she has stamped on her back.
  • Matt uses his straws as chop sticks
  • We don’t want a pitcher of beer because we will get headaches.  Nancy ingeniously suggests that we kindly ask the establishment to fill the pitcher from bottles of beer thus avoiding said headaches.
  • Nancy comments on Elaine’s ruby red ink
  • Elaine believes Nancy is coveting her ink so she will be keeping a close eye on her pen
  • It is toooo loud in here
  • DiMaggio is three
  • We’d be happy to bring appetizers to Libby’s shower
  • Libby doesn’t eat food

  • Teresa wants to know if we have a gun
  • Laura attacked the speakers with a pool cue.
  • Elaine loves nachos & cheese but mostly she loves free appetizers of any sort
  • Jeannette wants to know what’s new and exciting.  We would tell her if only she had included us in when telling her secret story to Julie.
  • Nancy has something to say about a lady she met at McDonalds.  She couldn’t understand what the black lady was saying.  She thought that perhaps the lady was hungry and wanted Nancy’s leftovers, but no, she wanted Nancy to order her 2 hamburgers, fries and a coffee.
  • Why would Nancy have leftovers at McDonalds?  Did she order more food than she could eat?  Perhaps Nancy would benefit from a lesson in hunger management and planning.
  • Laura gave a bum in Washington DC a sandwich that had no mayonnaise on it.  The bum was not happy.
  • A lady in Chicago called Julie ugly and then called her an ugly name.
  • Matt went to a baseball game and asked a bum for instructions on using the parking meter.  The bum wanted Matt to get him a sandwich from 7-11 but Matt thought 7-11 was too far away.  Wendy’s was closer so he bought him lunch from there and ate with the bum.  The bum told Matt that he had been in jail for pushing drugs to grade school students.   All in all, Matt thought he was a nice guy because he wrapped up his leftovers up for his other bum friends.
  • Another story of fast food leftovers.  People should eat what they order.
  • Matt has his ear pierced.
  • Teresa tells a story regarding a student who lost the back to her earring and asked Teresa (the school nurse) for help in getting the earring out.  Turns out the earring back was still attached to the earring post and had gone inside her earlobe.
  • A pencil eraser makes a good back for an earring in an emergency situation.
