Seniors to board the bus for Senior Day

The weeks are passing so quickly. If you are a student, you realize summer is just about over, if you are a teacher, you have already started working on the next school year. Vacationers are packing in as many days as possible before the school year starts and we get back into the routine.

Daylight savings time rolls over the day after Halloween this year and that seems early. I have heard that your senior years are like a roll of toilet paper, as time passes, it rolls faster! I am beginning to believe that.

If any of you are getting a new dishwasher, we would like to have the silverware basket out of the old dishwasher. We always have more silverware than will fit in our baskets. You can drop them off at the center any weekday from 8-4 or they can be left at the library if we aren’t open. We would very much appreciate this gift.

We had our July Smart driving class on Monday morning. Our next class will be in November, so if you haven’t taken the class, it will save you some money on your vehicle insurance, so it is worth it for that reason, but better yet you catch up on all the new laws and traffic changes that are made throughout the state.

We had our chair exercises and received our daily supply of Kroger baked goods. These are free for you taking and the products are very nice. It is not stale, broken, or dried-up merchandise. We received these Monday through Thursday.

Tuesday we started with our balance class. This class is free this summer and taught by a very capable senior. It meets each Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. The Line dancers were here just before lunch to trip the light fantastic. Don Evans sponsored lunch and explained some of the changes in Medicare and how it works. The computer class met in the afternoon.

Wednesday we had our chair exercises and played games. The Mah Jongg players were out in full force in the afternoon filling the room.

Thursday we had our balance class and played games. Angela fixed one our favorite lunches: Ham & Beans with cornbread. No one is bashful with in comes to eating beans and we always eat more than one bowl.

Friday we played games and ate leftover beans for lunch. They are always better the second day anyway. The County Nurse was not here today and will not be here until October.

Let us visit about next week as we welcome August; Monday Oxford Glen Memory Lane of Sachse will sponsor lunch on Monday after our exercises and we have played games all morning working up an appetite.

Tuesday will start with our free balance class and practice bridge classes. The line dancers will be here at 10:30 to dance right up to lunchtime. We are all hungry after this kind of a workout. The paper craft and the computer classes will meet in the afternoon.

Wednesday we will play games before a sponsored lunch. Thursday we will play bingo in the morning and have our birthday luncheon. This is always a fun time with song, ice cream and cake

Friday we will board the bus to attend the Senior Day sponsored by Angie Chin Button at the Richardson Civic Center from 9 a.m.– noon. Games will be played at the center and in the evening we will enjoy another evening of fun and laughter! We invite you to join us and bring finger foods.

Remember to live your life and forget your age. Until our next visit I’ll keep the doors open.
