The last Thursday of every night the Senior Citizens has a bingo night. Ms. Shirley
asked me if I wanted to go with her. I said sure sounds like you will have a great time. I was going to read a book while she played.. Well that didn't happen as I ended up playing. Well let me tell you these older folks take this game way serious!! I had fun playing as well as watching how everyone interacted with the others.
Shirley and me
I couldn't go without taking a selfie of us now could I? At 50 years old I do believe I was the youngest one there... Although Vonda was there with her mon and she is 5 years older than me. What is age thou? Shirley had a great time and it got her out of her house for several hours.
I hope we remember to attend next month!!
Shirley waiting on the bingo lady to start calling out the numbers. Unfortunately we didn't win a prize but still had the best time ever! Let me tell you the prizes they had wasn't too shabby at all. I saw a pretty necklace, a couple of tote bags, household items as well as some tools. Several cool items I would have liked myself. In fact I am thinking if I see some nice gifts on sale I might just pick up to take to put on the gift table.
Entertainment that is free that includes lots of visiting and laughter equals a perfect evening. Sometimes I believe we forget that we don't have to pay large amounts of money to have a good time. This night was the perfect example of having a good time for no cost. They even had drinks and cookies! Although if I go back next month I think I will take a bottle of Coke and a package of my favorite cookies. They had Pepsi but I am a Coke gal. The cookies they provided was more of a dry variety where I like Oreos or Chocolate chip cookies. Yes I might be a tad bit picky. Although I would share my goodies with the others.
Hanging with Ms. Shirley has been so good for my soul. She fills a void in my heart that has been empty since my mom and grandma passed in 2010.
