A woman scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive man standing alone. She approached him. 'My name is Carmen,' she told him.
'That's a beautiful name,' he replied, 'Is it a family name?'
'No,' she replied. 'I gave it to myself. It reflects the things I like most -- cars and men. What's your name?' she asked.
He said, 'B. J. Titsengolf.'

WINNERS!

Just so you don't forget what Trader Rick's Looks like...


It is 5:45 and 64 degrees F. out and Junior and Patrick are downstairs asleep on a couch and Boarder is in Room Number Four with two cats.

Junior won Top Choice Friday Night and Best of Class Saturday in Marion at the Kruisin Matter Park Car Shows. Photos to follow if we ever get off our arses. Also had a CarToon done of the car by "Mikey"--came out pretty good. Rained like the Great Flood Saturday morn, but sunny and HOT in the p.m. Went to the Lagro Show Saturday Night--pretty bizarre judging there--kind of rigged...

So, we be pretty worn out from all that.

BFT

Travel Bug....


It is 6:11 a.m. est and 70 degrees. Patrick is outside, Junior asleep on a couch and Boarder and cats in Rm#4.

We went to the 9th Street Gang's Kroozin' in Matter Park Car Show last night, and Junior won a HUGE Trophy! So we are 3 for 5!

There was an Elvis Impersonator at the band shell and he was fairly good and a Christian. Jack came with us and we ate giant tenderloins, popcorn, peanuts and ice cream. We will go back today, then to the LaGro show tonite.

Photos later on.

There was an old guy there with an old hot rod Lincoln, about a '57 and it had cool Elvis Graphics on it, hand painted.

Also had a ton of Pyle Woofers and Amps in the trunk, neon all over. I told him I thought I recognized one of the woofers, that I might have built it, or at least wound the voice coil. He wasn't all that impressed. I think he must win a lot of trophies. Since this is James Dean Country, he had some graphics of James dean also...



A disturbing thing was one vendor--He was a Vietnam Vet. He had his Army Unit Ball cap on display as well as three framed pics of his Obedience Champion Siberians. He was serving tiny free samples of Spaghetti Sauce and bread (Tasted like RAGU) He was selling very small baggies (1 oz.?) of herbs to put in your pasta sauce for four or five bucks-- Oregano, basil etc. looked like dope.



Now those little jars of spices sell for a dollar or two a pop--he was giving you about 35 cents worth for five bucks...none of this made sense.



It was a total scam.



Now if he was handicapped or something it would have made sense--but anyway I found it rather odd...



Now, this was not a blind man selling pencils. He seemed quite able bodied.

More later.

THIS IS REALLY SCARY!!!

small white animal...


It is time hwat?7:14 am est and how 68 degrees hot and where patrick and junior down and boarder up in her room.

GOT SUCKED DEEP, DEEP IN THE INTERNET THIS MORNING FROM MY EMAIL--THOUGHT I'D NEVER GET OUT--TOOK TWO HOURS TO GET BACK. EVER HAPPEN TO YOU???

Well, well, well. The Boarder is dissatisfied. Probably time for her to go. She is insane and physically and mentally handicapped and homeless and we took her in. Perhaps she would like it better living in a cardboard box at the underpass? Might be time to buy her a shopping cart, and take her out to the interstate or the inner city somewhere.

She certainly has no appreciation for any help given her. Her delusions are now affecting our happy little home in a huge negative fashion. I can't suffer mean-spirited people.

NO GOOD TURN GOES UNPUNISHED.

Ok, rant over, back to business:

Three car shows to attend in the next 24 hours.



Maria out of Wimbledon early--WTF?



Bobby Jindal's Louisiana is going to castrate Child Rapers. Good for them. Junior says Bobby For President!! If the Commies can have a mulatto, we can have a Continental Indian!!! And Sheriff Joe for VP!! The Dream Ticket...


SCOTUS, those old morons, finally got one right. After siding with the Jihadists, and the Baby Rapers this week, they finally upheld the 2nd Amendment as an individual right. But, 5-4. FIVE TO FOUR????

WE ARE ONE SENILE OLD EGOTISTICAL TOTALITARIAN AWAY FROM LOSING OUR GUNS!!!!!
IF BARACK OBAMA APPOINTS ANOTHER OF THESE BASTARDS TO THE COURT, WE ARE FRIED!!!!!

The Second Amendment, which is REALLY easy to understand,(for those with English as a first language, and those who are not assholes with a socialist agenda) is the one that ensures all the others in the Bill of Rights.

ANOTHER SHOW



It is 5:31 a.m. Patrick got up with me and went downstairs to sleep with Junior on the couch as he is wont to do every morning. Boarder is in Rm #4 with two cats.

That guy that killed his wife and baby got convicted yesterday and will go to prison for life. Shepherd Smith of Fox commented "He killed His wife because he didn't like his sex life. Wonder how he'll like it now?" BURN!

Another show:

Kroozin in the Park to be better, promoter says

June event to change a little this year

BY GEORGE DICKEN
reporter@comteck.com
Published: Sunday, June 8, 2008 1:09 AM EDT
It might never be as big as James Dean weekend for antique cars, but Jerry Hendey, show chairman for the Ninth Street Gang Car Club, couldn’t be more pleased with the progress of Kroozin in the Park set for June 27 and 28 at Marion’s Matter Park.

In its third year, the show has seen significant growth each year. Hendey anticipates more than 600 cars this year.

“I have goodie bags for more than 600 car owners this year,” he said. “Hopefully, we will have that many. Our first year we had 275 cars. That broke my heart because I wanted 1,000. The second year we went to 407. If we have the same increase this year, we should be over 600.”

Counting the entrants is easy. Determining attendance at the show proves more difficult.



“We’re so busy with the show that we don’t have time to make a count, but we have estimated the crowds at 4,000 to 5,000,” Hendey said. “We are hoping for a lot more. Our goal is not to equal the James Dean weekend, but to build toward that. Eventually, we hope to hit 2,000 cars.”

The show will run from 4 to 9 p.m. June 27 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 28.

“We will have all kinds of craft booths,” Hendey said. “We will have automotive parts dealers. A Lifeline helicopter flew in last year and that will probably be back again this year. We will have everything. We will have cars from $4,000 all the way up to $250,000. Last year we had a Duesenberg and a Cord This year we're hoping to have Trader Rick Jr.'s hot 2002 "Last of the Breed Trans-Am, as well as some other rather famous local cars.”[Ed. Just kidding!]

The club has made some changes for the 2008 show.

“We are changing the judging area to speed things up,” Hendey said. “We had a really good band, The Bel Aires out of Fort Wayne, on Friday night. This year we aren’t doing that because Friday is a poor night for us. Last year, we only had 85 cars there. Instead, I have hired Brandon Howard from Fairmount, an Elvis impersonator, to perform for a couple of hours and we will have the top 50 awards on Friday instead of the band. In addition we will be giving some specialty awards.”

Also, last year the show presented 93 awards on Saturday. This year it will have 130.

“We will be separating the cars into classes — the 2000 cars, the 1990 cars, the ’80 cars,” Hendey said. “When we get into the ’70s and before, we break those into categories — roadsters, coupes — 41 different categories altogether. With that many, we think we have just about everything covered.”

The club donates all proceeds for its shows to charity.

“Not a dime is spent on the club,” Hendey said. “Each October we meet to decide whether the money will go to one charity or distributed among several. Whatever charities we donate to have to be 501 charities. This year it will go to the Marion-Grant County Senior Center. We have donated to them three years now. Last year we donated $8,750.”

WE JUST LOVE THAT BOY WITH NO SLAVE BLOOD

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their
days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and
into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out,
there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on,
man, how about giving a retired person a break'? He ignored me and
continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and
wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a 'doughnut
eating Gestapo. He finished the second ticket and put it on the
windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on
for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that
he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, 'Obama in
'08.' I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's
important to my health.

FREE KITTENS


It is 6:14 a.m. and 67 degrees. Patrick and Junior are asleep downstairs, Boarder and cats in Rm #4.

We have been watching Army Wives on TV. we fast forward thru the mushy parts that are just too much to bear...

Richard Gilmore's Parole Board has recommended him for release despite a negative psych evaluation. This animal was a serial rapist and among his victims was a 13 year old girl. I would really like to get some face time with these heinous assholes to try to understand their reasoning...Look them dead in the eyes and see If I can find a hint of a soul there.

OPTICAL ILLUSION





It is 8:16 a.m. and 57 degrees F. Everybody's asleep.



Four old retired geocachers from Indiana are walking down a street in

Clearwater, Florida. They turned a corner and see a sign that says, 'Old Timers Bar - all drinks 10 cents.' They look at each other, and then go in, thinking this Is too good to be true.
The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, 'Come on in and let me pour one for you!
What'll it be, Gentlemen?'
There seemed to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini. In short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis...
Shaken, not stirred,and says, 'That'll be 10 cents each, please'
The four men stare at the bartender for a moment.
Then look at each other...
They can't believe their good luck.
They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are
produced with the bartender again saying, 'That's 40 cents, please.' They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.
They have each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar.
Finally one of the men says, 'How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?'
'I'm a retired tailor from Boston,' the bartender said, 'and I always wanted to own a bar.
Last year I hit the Lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime - wine, liquor, beer, it's all the same.'
Wow!!!! That's quite a story,' says one of the men.
The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice seven other people at the end of the bar who didn't have drinks in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there.
One man gestures at the seven at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, 'What's with them?'
The bartender says, 'Oh, they're all old muggles from Illinois. They're waiting for
happy hour when drinks are half price.'

It is 7:32 a.m. and 57 degrees. Patrick and Junior are asleep on a couch in the living room and Boarder is in room with cats.



Speaking of Flamingos and coconut palms--they only show up in SOUTH Florida, like Miami--our only MUST WIN football game this year...

MENU

A cannibal was walking through the jungle and came upon a restaurant operated by a fellow cannibal. Feeling somewhat hungry, he sat down and
looked over the menu...

+ Tourist: $5
+ Broiled Missionary: $10.00
+ Fried Explorer: $15.00
+ Baked Congressional Democrat : $100.00

The cannibal called the cook over and asked, 'Why such a price difference for the politician?'

The cook replied, "Have you ever tried to clean one? They're so full of shit, it takes all morning."

For this event, you can only log caches you or the group you were with physically picked up in the field, even if you had previously logged them in the past.

Thanks to those of you that deleted your finds on caches that were on the list that were not picked up and those that were picked up by others.

Hope to see you all at the next hot dog and root beer picnic. Cache on!

Just before takeoff, a U.S. Marine sat down in the aisle seat. After takeoff, the Marine kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, 'I need to get up and get a coke.'

'Don't get up,' said the Marine, 'I'm in the aisle seat, 'I'll get it for you.'

As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marine's shoe and spat in it.

When the Marine returned with the coke, the other Arab said, 'Th at looks good, I'd really like one, too.'

Again, the Marine obligingly went to fetch it. While he was gone the other Arab p icked up the Marine's other shoe and spat in it.

When the Marine returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.

As the plane was landing, the Marine slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

'Why does it have to be this way?' he asked. 'How long must this go on? This fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity? This spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes?'

THE FEW.
THE PROUD.
THE MARINES.

PBR LIGHT IN CANS...


On December 12, 2007, ESPN reported that Chuck Norris had sent a congratulatory letter to Tim Tebow, quarterback of the Florida Gators, following his Heisman Trophy win.



GO GATORS

HIGH SPEED DOWN, AGAIN.

"Donna" never looked this good on that 70's Show...


It is 7:50 a.m. and 68.9 degrees outside. Patrick and Junior are asleep in his bed, Boarder in Room #4 with cats.



We have a stray cat hanging around, very friendly. Followed Junior and I around the property yesterday. Has a puncture wound through one leg, but no infection present and no limp. We'll see.



Boarder spotted two hummingbirds yesterdayfeeding on some of our flowers. I have been resisting paying ten bucks at Wally World for a new feeder to replace our destroyed one. Guess I better bite the bullet.



I wish I could find one of those dollar ones, that you just screw a 2 liter plastic bottle into...maybe since they stopped putting the black dish on the bottom of those, they aren't practical any more... won't attempt a photo today. Bye-Bye!

Later: Hi speed back up. made a hummingbird feeder out of a rabbit waterer.



TICK WARNING!

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it
myself a couple times unintentionally... but this one is real, and it's
important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks
due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance
around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want
to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

HODAGS WIN AGAIN


It is 7:20 a.m. and 67 degrees and raining. Patrick and Junior are asleep downstairs and Boarder is in Room Number Four, with cats.

Watched the Gators go down in defeat to the Wisconsin Hodags in Collegiate Ultimate on TV last night. Don't know much about Ultimate, but Junior says he has played pick-up games.

Hodags are animal devil demons local to Wisconsin. They are the defending national champs. Gators had a 41-1 record, and were ranked #1...

This is not NCAA, but club teams...

Gators were National Champions in 2006.

PRINCESS HILLARY, THE WICKED QUEEN


It is 5:23 a.m. and 76.5 degrees outside. Patrick and Junior are asleep downstairs, Boarder and cats in their room.

Hillary Rodham Clinton's "concession" speech Saturday was a farce, and Baraxo Osama knows it.

She raved on and on and on about herself and her accomplishments and her goals and her pants suits for thirty minutes. She devoted maybe three or four minutes to Osama.





KATIE IS TOO HOT TO TOUCH!!




Boy did she have a tell!!! When lauding herself and her over-the-hill groupies, she was all SMILES.


When giving her obligatory due to Osama, she was all stern and monotone-ish. Like the BILE was coming up in her mouth, and she couldn't stand it. Gritting her teeth. She was doing it on purpose. She wanted us to know this was just lip-service. She just don't like that uppity darkie. GO GATORS!

BIG BROWN? horse shit....BIG RED FOREVER!!

Today's TV coverage of the Belmont stakes by ABC or whatever incompetent network it was was abominable. For 90 minutes all we saw was Big Brown, who must be the first branded, sponsored racehorse, with UPS on his colors, or his trainer or a sick child.

It was like the producers were yelling "Camera Three--that last shot had another horse in the background--do that again and you're fired!"


90 minutes of this hype and you'd never know there were any other horses in the field--The other eight horses got maybe a combined four minutes of coverage, if that.

The sick kid had more coverage. I'm sorry, I didn't tune in to see that. I've got my own problems, so does everybody--can we focus on the race, please?

Sickening and shameful coverage. If Brown loses, do we get to see the kid cry???

When they show the race, they'll have to show the rest of the field, right? Or will they just do a closeup head and shoulders of Big Brown and Jockey. Boy, he better fuckin' win after all this hype. Guess he will, since his best competitor scratched...

OK, they're off!! There ARE other horses in the race. In fact, one goes wire-to-wire to win!!

So, Brown can't win, so the the jock pulls him up, and he just cantors over the finish line. WTF?

If he's hurt, I want to know about it. Don't see anything, and believe me the cameras are all on him, not the WINNER, who frankly we don't even get to see...
So shoot the fucker and do an autopsy--I want to know if he just got beat or did he hemmorage or something.

What a joke. Still don't know the name of the frickin winner...

FROM THE NET:Secretariat remains No. 1 name in racing
By Ron Flatter
Special to ESPN.com


Seldom does performance match excessive expectation.

Super Bowls are rarely super. Pay-per-view fights are hyped without money-back guarantees. And there's that old expression that applies so perfectly to horse racing: There's no such thing as a sure thing.

Secretariat
Secretariat was sold to a breeding syndicate for a then-record $6.08 million.

Then there was Secretariat at the 1973 Belmont Stakes.

He carried a lot more than jockey Ron Turcotte when he went to the gate a 1-to-10 favorite. He had the weight of Secretariat Mania on his back. The international buzz surrounding him was deafening. He was being counted on to win the race and become the first Triple Crown champion in 25 years -- the first of the television generation that had already put him on an unrealistic pedestal.

Secretariat's response went beyond unreal. He won by a jaw-dropping 31 lengths. His time of 2:24 for 1 1/2 miles set a world record many argue may never be broken.

Secretariat became so popular, Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated featured the horse on the cover the same week. The William Morris Agency booked his appearances the way it would for a hot movie star. At the time, no movie star was as hot as "Big Red."

"This red horse with blue and white blinkers and silks seemed to epitomize an American hero," said Penny Chenery, who owned the playful, barrel-chested colt during his racing days.

In a career that spanned only 16 months, Secretariat started 21 times, won 16 and finished in the money in all but his first race. He was an odds-on favorite 17 times, winning 13. By the time he went to stud, he had won back-to-back Horse of the Year awards.

The true measure of Secretariat's greatness was his performances in big races. As former Pimlico general manager Chick Lang said, "He looked like a Rolls-Royce in a field of Volkswagens."

Secretariat was born on March 30, 1970, at the Meadow Stud in Doswell, Va. He was the third offspring of 1957 Preakness winner Bold Ruler, the greatest sire of his generation, and Somethingroyal, who raced just once but whose breeding was of top quality. Secretariat was the brightest of chestnuts, deep-chested with the muscular quarters of the speed horse and the length and scope of the stayer.

In Secretariat's debut on July 4, 1972 at Aqueduct, he went off as the favorite but was impeded at the start and finished fourth in the 5 1/2-furlong race. Eleven days later, he broke his maiden in a 6-furlong race at Aqueduct.

Secretariat's only other defeat as a two-year-old would be on a disqualification, in which he was placed second for bumping Stop the Music in the Champagne at Belmont. His seven victories in nine races enabled him to become the first two-year-old to be voted Horse of the Year.

Before his 1973 season, Secretariat became the solution to a financial crisis. Christopher Chenery, Penny's father, died in January. As the builder of Meadow Stud, he left behind hefty estate taxes. His family decided to pay the bill by selling Secretariat to a breeding syndicate that would assume ownership at the end of the horse's racing days. The price tag was a then-record $6.08 million.

Secretariat won his first two races that year, but in his final tuneup before the Kentucky Derby, he finished third behind Angle Light and Sham in the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct. At 1 1/8 miles, Secretariat seemed to hit his limit. The Derby -- all 1 1/4 miles of it -- was only two weeks away.

It turned out that just hours before the Wood, an abscess was found under Secretariat's lip. When the abscess broke before the Derby, the pain he was suffering was gone. But was the abscess the reason Secretariat lost? Or was it an excuse?

The answer came soon enough.

The 13-horse Derby shaped up as a duel between Secretariat and Sham. The two held back early -- Secretariat at the rear; Sham just off the lead. Then Laffit Pincay moved Sham to the front just before the final turn. Turcotte moved Secretariat to the outside to close on Sham, who was picking up steam.

"I didn't think anybody would be able to catch him," Pincay said of Sham. "I knew we were going to win."

Secretariat had other ideas. He caught Sham halfway down the stretch and won by 2 1/2 lengths in a world-record time of 1:59 2/5, the only Derby winner to crack two minutes.

Two weeks later in the Preakness, Secretariat went from last to first on the clubhouse turn, never relinquished the lead and beat Sham again by 2 1/2 lengths. Clockers timed him in a Pimlico-record 1:53 2/5 for the 1 3/16 miles, but because of an apparently malfunctioning clock, the official time was recorded as 1:54 2/5, two-fifths of a second off the track record set by Canonero II in the 1971 Preakness.

Only four horses challenged Secretariat in the Belmont, even though the previous seven horses to have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness withered in the 1 1/2-mile race, unable to match Citation's 1948 Triple Crown.

ZONE POLL

"Big Red" changed all that on June 9, 1973.

Secretariat and Sham broke together and stayed that way into the first turn. They were by themselves on the backstretch when Secretariat made the biggest move ever seen in a Triple Crown race.

"Secretariat is alone. He is moving like a tremendous machine!" track announcer Chick Anderson yelled. "He's going to be the Triple Crown winner. Unbelievable! An amazing performance. He's 25 lengths in front!"

"I kept hearing Chick Anderson," Turcotte said. "I finally had to turn to see where the other horses were. I know this sounds crazy, but the horse did it by himself. I was along for the ride."

Secretariat paid $2.20 to win and his 2:24 remains a world record for 1 1/2 miles on a dirt track, and it's still two full seconds better than subsequent challengers to his Belmont Stakes record. The 2 3/5 seconds by which he broke Gallant Man's 16-year-old track record was the equivalent of 13 lengths.

But most impressive was the 31-length gap. It was so big, even the widest angle of the CBS camera covering the stretch run could barely show Secretariat in the same shot as the next-nearest horse, Twice A Prince. As Charles Hatton wrote in The Daily Racing Form, "His only point of reference is himself."

The ensuing months were anticlimactic for Secretariat. Suffering from a fever, he lost the Whitney Stakes at Saratoga to Onion in August and the Woodward Stakes at Belmont Park to Prove Out. But he went out in triumph. On Oct. 28, 1973, he won the 1 5/8-mile Canadian International Championship Stakes by 6 1/2 lengths in the cold of suburban Toronto, raising his career earnings to $1,316,808.

In stud, Secretariat sired such future champions as 1988 Preakness and Belmont winner Risen Star and 1986 Horse of the Year Lady's Secret. But none of his offspring came close to matching the standard he set.

He remained a popular figure even after Secretariat Mania subsided. But his life ended tragically. Suffering from laminitis -- a painful hoof disease -- the 19-year-old superstar was given a lethal injection on Oct. 4, 1989, at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky.

"It was a terrible day for all of us," Claiborne president Seth Hancock said. "We just couldn't stand to see him suffer."

To this day, Secretariat remains one of the first names everyone thinks of whenever the topic of horse racing comes up. "It's hard to believe after all these years," Chenery said, "but hardly a day goes by that I don't get mail about Secretariat."



That bit about the Rolls Royce in a field of VW's is true. He DID stick out in a crowd. Big. and Red. and MAGNIFICENT

We know. We were in the Belmont Grandstands when he won the triple crown by 31 lengths.


And we were at the rail in Saratoga when the little speed horse Onion beat him...



To this day No horse has ever run a faster Derby or Belmont...



So it goes.

Join Us for a Gamma-Theta TKE Fall Kickoff Event
Alumni Fraters,

This fall is an exciting time for Gamma-Theta Tekes and Gators everywhere. After a Heisman-winning season, Tim Tebow and the Gators embark as national favorites on a quest for a BCS National Championship.

Meanwhile, more exciting news continues to come out of Gainesville. Your Gamma-Theta Chapter, now of almost 100 men, will be renting a new house at 1904 West University Avenue right across the street from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and Florida Field. Every thrilling Gator game will start with an alumni tailgate just steps from the stadium.

With this in mind, the Gamma-Theta Alumni Association is pleased to announce the beginning of a new series of alumni events. Join us this summer for TKE Alumni gatherings in Orlando and Tampa.

Come meet up with other Gamma-Theta alumni from all different generations as well as and today's young chapter leaders. Bring family and friends and recount your timeless TKE memories with each other over food and drinks.

Saturday, July 26-Orlando, FL (location and time TBA)
Saturday, August 2- Tampa, FL (location and time TBA)

If you are interested in attending either event, please RSVP by June 16th via e-mail to Andrew Shapiro at shappy67@ufl.edu. It is an exciting time to be a Florida Gator and an even more exciting time to be a Gamma-Theta TKE, come celebrate!

Go Gators!

Yours In The Bond,
Andrew Thomas, President
Gamma-Theta Alumni Association
