Senior Spotlight for Nov. 28, 2011
November 28, 2011
I was looking for something to watch on TV and I came upon a musical.
After watching it for a while, I asked my daughter Jane, who was working on our jigsaw puzzle, "Is this Scrooge?"
Yes, she said, that's him. How wonderful is this, I thought. I'm a fan of musicals and I collect them.
"A Christmas Carol" is one of my favorites around the holidays. I've seen three versions of it already, each with the same plot. Different ghost get-ups, dressed in interesting versions of present, past and future attire. But, my favorite is still the original.
There can't be any bah humbugs about birthdays.
I have happy birthday for Jeff Southard, Isidore Lopez, Mary Jane Lindley, Joy Nylander, Ron Hall and anyone else I may have missed this week.
Speedy recovery/get well wishes to Tillie Gallegos, Clara Abeyta, Sharon Clark, Ernie Garcia, Joseph Robbins and Rose Razzano.
The AARP meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. today at Sunset Meadows I, 633 Ledford St.
The McDonald's senior breakfast is Wednesday.
Sunset Meadows I will host a noon potluck Friday.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came over to Sunset Meadows I and II and celebrated Thanksgiving with us. The food and company was enjoyed by all.
I'd also like to thank food delivery service and volunteers from St. Michael's Kitchen who provided meals for people who weren't able to go in.
We're thankful for all who helped up front and behind the scenes.
By giving, we receive the special grace of God's wonderful love.
