THE WAKKER WEEKLY - Issue #1232 - Posted on: 08-Sep-2014
Bushwakker NewsOur premium wine features for September are Pelee Island Lucky Stones VQA Wines from Ontario. The white is a Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay/Scheurebe and the red is a Baco Noir/Cabernet Franc. Both are $7.95 for a glass and $22.95 for a half litre. Our guest import tap now offers Prairie Sun Yukaflux Belgian-style fruit-ale from Saskatoon. $7.95 for a pint. Work on the washrooms continues. The washrooms in the AZ room will normally be available when either the main men’s or women’s is not available. However, in the event that a function has been booked into the AZ room (It’s hard to predict when both the AZ and the main room washrooms will be unavailable) there is a washroom east of the back entrance to the Bushwakker and another downstairs off the Club Room.

September ArtistOur September artist is Tina Hudson. The following is her autobiography. Being a born and raised a Saskatchewan girl, I grew up in the small town of Ceylon, Sask. I spent my last 23 years in Weyburn, Sask. I use Photography to capture reflections of what I See/Vision and turn my ideas into a piece of Art on Paper/Canvas, to ultimately share with all. Not only am I inspired by the subject, but also in how I can take advantage of the Light and Angles to make the scene come alive. I have always had a love for photography. The purchase of my 1st digital camera in 2003 set of a spark in me that has yet to be dimmed. From there, onto an SLR with my best friend (my tripod) , and multiple photo workshops. There was no holding me back. Many road trips as a passenger gave me the ability to enjoy the landscapes, composing scenes in my memory for future use, to chase the skies, waiting for the perfect sun flare, the amazing sunset, the golden hues and colours to make my photo's come alive. Each day with my camera is an endless opportunity to see what I can create for tomorrow. There's nothing more exciting than heading out on a beautiful Saskatchewan day to shoot, and then hurry home to download and see what my eye had captured today. Imagine, all this from a viewfinder?

We’ve extracted some interesting ratings for nearby states and the best and the worst states for craft beer from the following article. The full article contains much more information.
Time Out; a policeman’s lot.Bob, a lawyer, was driving home over the Golden Gate Bridge after spending a great day on the ocean fishing. His catch, cleaned and filleted, was wrapped in newspaper on the passenger-side floor. He was late getting home and was speeding... Wouldn't you know that a cop jumped out, radar gun in hand, and motioned him to the side of the bridge. Bob pulled over like a good citizen. The cop walked up to the window and said, "You know how fast you were going, boy?" Bob thought for a second and said, "Uh, 60?" "67 miles per hour, son! 67 miles per hour in a 55 zone!" said the cop. "But if you already knew, officer," replied Bob, "why did you ask me?" Fuming over Bob's answer, the officer growled and said in his sarcastic fashion, "That's speeding, and you're getting a ticket and a fine!" The cop took a good close look at Bob in his stained fishing attire and said, "You don't even look like you have a job! Why, I've never seen anyone so scruffy in my entire life!" Bob answered, "I've got a job! I have a good, well-paying job!" The cop leaned in the window, smelling Bob's fish, and said, "What kind of job would a bum like you have?" "I'm a rectum stretcher!" replied Bob. "What did you say, boy?" asked the patrolman. "I'm a rectum stretcher!" The cop, scratching his head, asked, "What does a rectum stretcher do?" Bob explained, "People call me up and say they need to be stretched, so I go over to their house. I start with a couple of fingers, then a couple more, then one whole hand, and then two. Then I slowly pull them farther and farther apart until it's a full six feet across." The cop, absorbed with these bizarre images in his mind, asked, "What the hell do you do with a six-foot asshole?" Bob said, "You give him a radar gun and place him by a bridge!"
Police in Newfoundland have arrested a 30-year-old shop assistant after he was found lying naked with a mannequin in a store window. "We found several bite marks on other mannequins as well," An officer told the CBC. "The suspect said he had gotten somewhat confused after purchasing a book called 'Making Love for Dummies.'"
