Following lunch, Sarah Purcell "embarrassed" George Schlatter by reading something he had written many years ago which contained several instances of the "f-word." Our honoree was not the only one in the room feeling a bit uncomfortable at hearing his own four-letter words. On the other hand, George Schlatter is not known for subtle humor!
