Hart family gathers for reunion

Ermine Senior Citizens Center has been entertaining family the past week, and having fun.

Rhuford and Coleen Hart had a family reunion the Fourth of July. They had 35 members of their immediate family, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including in-laws.

Colleen, did you say inlaws or out-laws? Just kidding!

Some came from Ohio, Georgia and western Kentucky, and the rest of them live here. The one ones missing were Cadie and Hallie, twins of Stephen and Wendy Hart, who are spending the summer in Lynchburg, Va., with Wendy’s sister and her family. She said they had a great time, but it sure was lonesome when they all left.

My daughter, Janet Albright, and grandson, Rick Swagert, came up from Alabama and stayed a few days with me. I really enjoyed having them, but sure hated to see them go back to Alabama.

Bobby Bates wants to know why hamburger is called ‘hamburger’ when it’s made from beef. Can anyone tell him?

One of our good cooks and a great friend, Ann Adams, has been off sick with her leg. I hope how soon you will be back, Ann, as we all miss you.

Our site manager, Debbie Slone, has had surgery and missed three days. We really missed her too. You both had better get back soon.

Lots of people ask me if the bear has been back. I tell them I don’t think so, but I’ve never seen it. I was told that I would scare it. Oh! That’s OK, as long as it stays away from me.

We are planning a shopping trip or a picnic this month some time, but we’ll have fun on either one. Maybe we’ll get to do both as we didn’t get to go anywhere last month.

You senior citizens come out and visit us. If you quilt, you can quilt or sit with me and have a great time talking. That’s what I do best.

I hope to see you this week again, Oma Hatton. It was good talking to you.

See you all. God bless until next time.
