Here we are again for our morning coffee. Where has August gone?
Our opener this morning was the discussion of the eclipse. Hope everyone remembers to protect their eyes if you are going to look at the eclipse. We had 21 in attendance this morning. Jenny Ousley has returned for a short visit. Ralph Ousley’s daughter and two grandchildren are here visiting. Carol and Chuck Danzer left Sunday for back north and said they will return in about 3 weeks. Bert and Ralph Centers are back and said they had a wonderful visit with Joe and Helen Cole while in Bristol, Va.
Birthday wishes this week go to Chuck Imboden and one of our most senior residents, Betty Jacobson, who turns 96 on Aug 27. A very happy birthday to our honored residents this week! Miriam Steele was our pianist today.
