Well we are back and trying to get in the swing of things. Got home on the tenth and had a big surprise. Some time while we were gone, I had a water pipe break. Water spraying all over the place, good thing it was outside. Will know how long it was broken when I get my water bill. Wednesday we had to do shopping, nothing got done while we were gone. Made several phone calls to the Engineer, the game people. the sheriff and I forgot who else. Thursday we had a great lunch fixed by Victor then had great afternoon playing Wham-Bam Bingo. Dan won three times. Friday was Queen of Hearts night, my good friend "Deli Bob" and his wife did a great job running the game while we were gone. The Sheriff for the night was Frank , he made a statement to Wyatt before he drew the ticket that if he drew his ticket he would give him $20.00 he had to pay up. The envelope he selected was #45 and contained the Ace of Clubs . No Queen so no reward. This weeks reward will be $2,900.00 would be a great Christmas present for someone. Saturday was the Children's Christmas party hosted by the Ladies Aux. The kid's had a great time. Santa passed out a lot of nice gifts and everyone enjoyed the snacks. We had two Community workers this weekend so got caught up on some of work outside. This coming week should be pretty busy. Don't forget we will be serving Christmas Dinner starting at 1:00pm on Wednesday. We could still use some donations. We have plenty of Turkey & Ham but need desserts. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas. We have New Years tickets on sale behind the Bar $25.00 ea.
I don't know if anyone has been looking for a current posting on my blog. I will try to do a short update, Joyce and I got most of the shopping done for the Thanksgiving Dinner done before we left Thanks to Ellen for getting the fresh rolls and other last minute things. As always Doug and Bobby did a great job on preparing the dinner. Also I would like to thank all the people who donated to help make the dinner a success. Friday nights Queen of Hearts was ran by Deli Bob and I have been told he did a great job. The lucky Sheriff for the night was Dan Clay and his choice of envelopes reveled the 6 of spades "no Winner" this weeks reward will be $2.500.00. Bob Witherly and Mike Burnes did the inventory on Saturday. I guess the Caopitol Sweeptakes people deceided we were not making them enough money so they came and removed their machines. When I get back I will try to get two more machines like the one's we have. A reminder that the Riders will be having their Christmas Party this Sat. Night the 8th. Also the monthly meeting will be held on Thursday. We are having a great time, just watched the launch of a communication Satalite from the Cape. which is only a couple miles away. Keep it together and we will be home next Tuesday.
