At last! A whole week with no forecast of 100+ temperatures. The mornings should all be wonderfully cool for a while; we should all get out and spend a few moments enjoying them before the busy commotion of the day. Our Bingo group is slowly getting larger – last week there were a total of 27 players. Jesse Locke hit the jackpot on Friday with 10 bingos, but not even that could give him first place over Rosa Lea Skelley who won consistently all week long to make her top dog. Each day had a few blackout prize winners, but each day the luck came to different ones. Betty Arter, Noma Johnson, Jr. Murphy, Norma Moler, W.T Bryan, Mike Patrick and Judith Winn were all prize winners. During Story Time with Margie on Friday, she read about some of life’s funniest moments as listed in the Reader’s Digest; then the group shared some of their own funniest moments for some pretty good laughs. Sometimes real life can be even funnier than what you read about, and those times can make the best and longest lasting memories. The big screen in our lobby was a gathering place for those who enjoy a good western movie on Saturday, and on Sunday afternoon the NASCAR race was playing for all of our racing fans. We’d again like to express our gratitude for those who come each Sunday morning to provide worship services and communion for our residents. Devotional times through the week are appreciated also. Since several of us are not able to join our own home congregations each week, the chance to become a ‘congregation’ here and worship together is a valuable experience for all those who take part. We’d like to say “good luck” to all those entering their best efforts in the county fair this week, and we hope everyone has a good time there as well. Since we are not able to be there this year with our food booth, our apologies to those who were looking forward to a great burger, but watch out for us next year! Stop by any time for a chat over a cup of coffee – we’ve got stories to share. See you soon.
