Wii bowling brings out the competition in seniors

Ermine senior citizens are getting back in the groove after their two weeks off.

We had our weekly Bingo games, and about 60 senior citizens were there. Some are playing the Wii games. Jim Craft bowled 202 on Thursday and Flo Mayhew bowled 243 on Friday. Betty Cook is doing good bowling, but I didn’t get her score. Come on, Jim. See if you can beat Flo next time.

Bob and Flo Mayhew are coming back to the center. They were there three days last week. I hope to see you both five days this week.

Lennon pointed at Lizzie Mae and had her give him his 75 cents back for The Mountain Eagle because she didn’t put any news in the paper last week.

Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day, will be in next week’s news, and we’ll see who won Mr. and Mrs. Leprechaun. They will each win a gift certificate.

Charles Day has been very sick but is better. He and Shirley were at the center last Friday.

Dorothy York has been sick but is now feeling better.

Jack and Sue Stallard missed Thursday and Friday due to sickness. I hope how soon this cold weather breaks and everyone gets to feeling better. We miss our people when they don’t come in.

Helen Bentley, who is in her 90s, and her son, Randall, and wife Tammie, have returned from a visit to the Southwest. They spent much time on South Padre, an island off the southwest coast of Texas. There is much to see and do there,the wildlife preserve and museum, as well as the Botanical Gardens. They also visited the Alamo and the Space Center at Houston, Tex. The center was named in honor of President Johnson.

There were museums, Botanical Gardens, and many other historical sights all over. A wonderful time was enjoyed. Glad you’re back, Helen, after being away a month.

We’re getting ready for the Senior Games at Knott County. Come and join us and see the fun we have. Our center won lots of medals last year.

Come on, senior citizens, and have fun and join in the games.

God bless until next time.
