Oh what a wonderful week we had at Ermine Center. We did . . . what? What did we do? Oh yeah, we talked, ate and discussed what we’ll do next. We played Bingo, and I won.
Some of us went to the Grill to the Heart Health Screening. They did blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol checks. Also, the lady talked to us about the foods we should eat and she made a breakfast trifle that was delicious. She also had some recipes for us. ARH had some really good snacks. They had a vegetable plate, a fruit plate, blueberry muffins, sandwich wraps and yogurt. I’m probably leaving something out, but it was very good.
Also, they gave away lots of nice gifts. Patty Majority and I both won a really nice umbrella.
We had a party last Thursday for our site manager’s birthday. We gave her a gift certificate and sang ‘ Happy Birthday’ to her, and had her a birthday cake that said, “Happy Birthday Debbie, from your Senior Citizens.”
There were 44 seniors there. Joe Bentley went out and came in with a lot of switches, but he didn’t use them, and we wouldn’t have let him if he’d tried. Way to go, Joe.
Last Friday was sort of quiet. We were saving our energy for Saturday, which was Judith Vermillion’s birthday. There were over 100 that attended. Judith’s daughter and granddaughter had decorated the center beautifully. They used orchid and pastel colors. They had streamers all over the ceiling and also ‘Happy Eightieth Birthday Judith’ in large letters on the walls, beautifully decorated tables and large wreaths around the window into the kitchen, pictures of Judith, and I’m probably leaving out a lot.
Well, I know I am, but it was decorated really nicely. They are professionals (I think), because they did a great job, and the food was delicious. Best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten.
Don and Nancy Fultz, two of our good seniors, a few months back moved to Richmond, Ind., and they came in Friday to see us as they were on their way back to Indiana. Feb. 14 was their wedding anniversary of 58 years. We were glad to see you both, please come back real soon.
Our own little Ruby Caudill of 97 years young is out of the nursing home and back with us. She has two good ladies taking care of her.
Also, Shirley Day has finally let Charles out of the doghouse and they’re back. Charles, be a good old boy and stay out of that doghouse, okay?
Last Saturday afternoon I went to the hospital to see Patty Majority, who was in ICU. She went in Wednesday evening. Here’s hoping she’ll be home when you read this. She was doing better, she said.
Hello to my good friend Ben Caudill in Georgetown.
We are planning our next parties, so if you seniors want to have some good, clean fun, come to our center at Ermine, across the road from Walmart and Food World. We will gladly welcome you in and treat you like family. We’ll really be good to you and show you a great time. Our ladies quilt Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you like to quilt come and join them. They quilt for each other.
It’s time to say so long and God bless until next time.
