Dot: Who is sitting with Abby? Hope: That’s William. Dot: William who? I don’t remember seeing him around. Hope: You have to be kidding? Watch this. As I’m waving my hand gentle and yelling – Hey Abby! Hey William! Dot: Hope are you kidding me? The way you yelled, and, and oh my gosh! He has to be the most self-absorbed person. Hope: He didn’t even turn around did he? Dot: Nope Hope: I would say he is full of egocentricity!! That’s why you never met him. Dot: You are really showing your “Bonker Schnozzle” today!! Hope: Hey! My “Bonker Schnoz” is okay in more ways than one. I forgive you Dot. Dot: Thank you so much. You are the best “Bonker’s” friend anyone can have.
Hope: Abby what are you fretting about? Abby: Nothing! Hope: Here comes Dot. OM Gosh it looks like she is fretting also! Dot: I just can’t believe it! Hope: So what are you fretting about? Dot: You are not going to believe this! Hope: So what happened? Dot: All I can say is I would rather do my laundry this way , then with that washer I have. Hope: What’s wrong with it? Abby: I bet I know. Hope: So will one of you tell me what’s going on? Dot: The agitator went hay wire and started spinning or should say spitting the clothes right out!!!! Abby: At least your clothes got out. My clothes I had to yank them out!!!! Hope: Girls here’s our to do list: 1.) We will check out what’s happening. 2.) Call a repair person. 3.) Clean up what ever mess there is. 4.) Wash our hands, faces, comb our hair, etc, etc. 5.) Then go out and treat ourselves! Let’s get moving!!!!
Congregate – what a word. I’m going to give it a try.
Hope: Hi Dot! Did you see the seniors from Golden Acres congregate with the seniors from Rough Riders? Dot: No I didn’t. When did it happen? Hope: Sunday 2/25/18 at 2 PM. It was an amazing sight. Dot: Did anything exciting happen? Hope: Exciting isn’t the word. They came together to shake hands and all of a sudden you seen motion like I never saw seniors do before. Clapping their hands, do the Jitterbug, do-si-so around, changing partners. Then Finally the police officers, fire department personnel, ambulance personnel arrived. Red, blue, green, yellow, purple lights flashing all over the place. Dot: So what caused this to happen? Hope: Did you ever hear of the McCoys vs. Hatfields from years, years, years ago? Dot: Yes! I thought they were all gone. Hope: I thought so too.
BUT Molly from the McCoy’s is now engaged to Maury from the Hatfield’s and some of their family was visiting and Baboom celebrating this soon to be marriage, like they never celebrated one before!
PS: They are both turning 99 years old at the end of March.
Hi Everyone! Did you enroll for the flower arrangement class? Hope: I just enrolled in a knitting class for intermediate. Hope I do okay. You know me I’m still all thumbs with the knitting needles. Dot: So why are you taking the class? Hope: I’m getting bored with the beginner patterns. Dot: You know you just might surprise yourself. Keep me posted.
Abby: Hey Hope! Did you enlist in the swimming try outs? Hope: No I didn’t. When did they post the information? ABBY: Last week. Not too many showed up, due to the 6 inches of snow. Hope: Since some of the snow melted I better get my butt over there. Can’t we enlist online? Abby: That would be the easy way, especially with the snow. Hope: Guess what I just checked online and no more spots are available. You know what I’m going to come and be the cheerleader for our group. Abby: The next time when I see something posted I will double check to make sure I read the fine print. It would have saved me a trip to enroll with this goofy weather. Better yet I will have you check online for me.
Have a great day! This is my style.
