Hello to all senior citizens on this great day. Every day is a great day when you get our age.
This last week was a busy week for us. It started out on Tuesday as we went to Breaks Interstate Park. We had 16 to go. We did some walking, we walked down to the lookout where we could see the tunnel. Judith Vermillion got a picture of the train coming out of the tunnel. It looked like a toy. But it was beautiful there. I took pictures also, but didn’t take the train as where I was standing the trees had my view blocked.
We ate lunch at the lodge and the food was delicious. The weather was great, sunshine and very little wind. We just had a wonderful time. Wednesday, we had visitors from MCHC. Their topic was about respiratory, which was about smoking and our health. We really enjoyed it. We really enjoyed you guys, so come back again soon.
Thursday, three ladies from Faith Moves Mountains were there and it was also our Old Timers Day and potluck. We had 60 or more including the workers and some others who didn’t sign their names. Rick Hall was also there and put us on TV.
We had all kinds of food, even Joe Walker’s famous cornbread. Joe, everyone said your bread was delicious and it must have been as it was all eaten. We had a few visitors to come in to eat with us.
Friday was our Halloween party at Kingscreek and the house was full. Several were dressed up. Lydia Hall won the best dressed at our center. She was dressed as Cher and she really looked good. She received a large basket of goodies.
We had 20 of our seniors there and four workers. Judge Jim Ward and Eddie Meade did the cooking. (I think Jim’s wife did the bossing.) The food was great. We had chicken, pork chops, coleslaw, baked beans, potato salad, pumpkin, orange cake and drinks.
Each center voted on the best dressed and each won a gift. We also had a Halloween king and queen, but I didn’t get their names. Watch Channel 98 and you can see who won.
We had a great time there. Thanks to Kathy Ingram for the decorations. Kathy, you did a great job.
Now the sad news from our center. Our little lady, Ruby Caudill, 97 (I think), has been in the hospital for about a week and Carl Parrott had to have heart surgery. They put a pacemaker in and he has been in ICU. We miss our people when they can’t be with us.
Don and Nancy Fultz have finally gotten off that mountain. We’re glad of that.
Say, are you all calling Jim Craft ‘Red’?
Ermine Center is a great place to go. We have a great center and a wonderful site manager, and we have a great fellowship. So if you want to go to a good center, just come on and be with us. We will welcome you right in and make you one of us. We truly would like to see you there.
So long for now and God bless until next time.
