Chow-time race to the dining hall

Now that the excitement of Christmas has gone away for another year, I guess we’ll have to come up with some fun ways to fill our rather long days.

We already have one of the “walkers cha cha cha”; a dance that we do every day in varying speeds depending on who’s pushing the walker.

Then there’s the chow-time race to the dining room; which depends a great deal on what the cook has waiting for us there and on the smell that’s wafting along the hall, invigorating all of us, thereby increasing our speed.

Our favourite amusement is watching Ginger the cat, making an entry or exit through the double sliding doors at the entrance to the building. I’ve yet to meet anybody who can describe how she does it. At any rate, it’s a guaranteed laugh!

All things considered we do find interesting ways to fill our days.

My favourite is a trip to the dining room for coffee and muffins at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

We had seven tables at the Don Bugera Whist Tournament in the Senior’s Hall. Winners were Eva Long and Maureen Coleman, and runners up were Rob Rutten and Susan Garland. It was nice to see so many new faces. I hope you will join us every Monday evening for Whist at 7 p.m.

The election of officers for the Senior’s Society is in February, so make sure your dues are paid up if you would like to hold an office and let us know.
