Christmas is almost here

This is going to be short and sweet; short that is, but not especially sweet because with Christmas closing in on me I haven’t a hope of getting everything done in time. Being a grandma is really rough on grandpeople, because the brain slows down as the numbers add up, and the capacity to keep the mind on the right track slows too.  

This is going to be short and sweet; short that is, but not especially sweet because with Christmas closing in on me I haven’t a hope of getting everything done in time. Being a grandma is really rough on grandpeople, because the brain slows down as the numbers add up, and the capacity to keep the mind on the right track slows too.  

Don’t try to tell that to the grandkids though, because they won’t understand until they get a lot older.

I hope Santa is good to you, because time is not.  

There were five tables in play at the December 13 Whist at the Senior’s Hall in Barriere.  Winners were Carol Bugera with a 209 score, and Monica Ireland with 207.  Other good scores were: Aline Babcock 204, Carol Jones 204, Rob Rutten 204, and Susan Garland 205.  Whist will start up again in January.

The Don Bugera Memorial will be on January 10.

Our next Senior’s Society meeting is on January 6.
