On The Bricks

January 27, 2014

Got a letter in the mail recently that said, “On your application for absentee ballots you identified a residence address that did not match with the voter registration address that we have on file. Please review the listed address below. If the address is incorrect, please fill out the voter application form provided and return ….” You get the drift. And they mailed this letter to the address in question. That I should correct if it was incorrect.

How would I have received the letter sent to an incorrect address?

Some things are just too funny.

Bob Burger with Opportunities Inc. has coats from the Keep ‘Em Warm program to give out, if you know of someone in need of a coat. Bob said the “quality and quantity” of donations have really impressed him this year. Way to go, folks! Stage even had a buy one, get one free and some people took the free one and donated it. That really helped. Way to go, Stage! If you need a coat, call Bob at 338-5388, and have the gender and size ready to tell him.

Wednesday is the Open House at the Heritage Community memory Care Assisted Living, 501 NE 15th in Guymon. It runs for 2-4 pm. Go show your support!

Living with a child has brought certain things back that I had forgotten. I did not remember how bowel movements are a topic of conversation. I had forgotten how a story about a seashell can take six minutes to hear and you still wonder about the reason for the story. But it certainly keeps life moving along and not at a standstill.

Last week a three day training was on the calendar. Starting at 9 am we were to finish at 7:30 pm. I dreaded the entire time. I was almost resentful thinking about the hours of sitting still and being nice. Instead the teacher was interesting, the classmates were people I really enjoyed meeting, and the information was good. We even got out early because we were a small class and skipped our breaks and lunch hour. Just goes to show you that those things we dread can often turn into something good and interesting. And learning is always excellent.

What have you learned recently?

Interested in learning about scrapbooking? There is a Creative Memories Party at the Presbyterian Church in Guymon from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday. Jacque Hyer leads that. They would love to see you there!

Another Irish blessing to you … “May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

See you on the bricks!
