Pot luck is Wednesday at Bay Minette Senior Center

Posted

Dominoes on Thursday, June 28 was a fun time. Mattie (Herb Waters’ great-granddaughter) has become a regular for the summer and a good player.

Two tables of Dominoes and, of course, card players ended the day after Dominoes.

Friday, June 29, was busy at the Senior Center from Art Class (9-noon), Bridge at 2 p.m. to Movie Nite at 6 p.m. We played one game of Bridge only, as we had a guest, Gail Stein, who came to teach us Pokino.

We had all been interested in learning and Ann Benoist arranged for Gail to come today to teach us. Before we knew it, we were into the game and added a player along the way until we had seven. The four corners were stolen several times and wound up with Ann Fisher (who was last to join game) — some things don’t seem fair do they Ann Benoist, Mildred Schram?

By the way, not bragging, yours truly was high point winner. No one understood that, but wanted to know my card number (A-4).

The reason I’m sharing this with you is that Minnie Lou Dean and I lost pitifully at Bridge. Now I feel better. Hope you do, too. Don’t forget my card number, in case you play Pokino.

If you know how we can get a Pokino game for the Senior Center, please let us know. We were playing away and it was announced spaghetti and salad was ready.

I tell you the officers are getting better and better with ideas. Herb announced that Thursday, July 19, there will be a steak supper. Bring your steak for grilling and salad and baked potatoes furnished with trimmings.

Put this on your calendar: Spend the afternoon with us and enjoy games through supper.

There was a little problem with the movie, “Missouri Traveler;” however, once stabilized, it turned out to be a really great movie. The kind of town we all would like to live in.

The high and mighty revealed to be a lonesome guy and he did get the gal, “Miss Prim and Proper.” What a twist at the end. Maybe it was the kiss or was it the fight? Well actually one brought on the other. An orphan boy (almost 16) comes to town and brings the whole town together. What joy! What caring and sharing! I can relate to that.

By the way, don’t forget to get an agreement in writing or so the high and mighty guy said. Kind of like the old-fashioned way, “Your word is your honor.” You need to see the movie (may be able to get it through the Bay Minette Library)!

In the meantime, how about looking beyond a name to a need, and be a part of caring and sharing to meet that need. There’s more to this story I’d like to share with you. There was a horse … !

Stop by the Senior Center and I will be glad to share it with you (Thursday or Friday afternoon)!

Hope you have made arrangements for the bus trip to Farmers’ Opry at Chumuckla. Leave from First Baptist Church at 3:30 p.m. Friday July 20. Stop by First Baptist Church office, sign up and pay $20, which includes your dinner and entertainment, Dixie Echoes! This is a senior trip.

There was a monthly meeting of Bay Minette Area Senior Citizens Organization July 3. Details of meeting next time.

Next week will be a fun week at the Senior Center. Flip/Flop Book Club meeting on Monday, July 9, at 1 p.m. (12 noon brownbaggers)! Come and share your thoughts of “A Christmas Promise” by Thomas Kinkade. New characters, new twist and a promise?

Then Wednesday, July 11, at noon, will be monthly Pot Luck. Now, for sure, Councilman Tony Edwards will be our entertainment and will be a sort of extension to the Fourth of July celebration. He and his family will play Bingo following Pot Luck.

Come and be with us and arrange your time so you can participate in one or all of our fun activities. Today, game day, good day to start at 2 p.m.

Thought for the week:

Every new day begins with possibilities. It’s up to us to fill in with the things that move us toward progress and peace.

—- Ronald Reagan

May God bless you and keep you until we meet again!
