Glad to get to talk to Serena this AM – but sorry to hear about all the car trouble getting to New Vienna!
That's one advantage of flying – esp. happy to have a non-stop flight!! I'm sure ready for a VACATION – life here has been like a funny farm!
Maybe some of you remember Jessie Cooper – one of the residents here - to make a LONG story short - She is now in a Nursing Home - under lock & key! We are again - almost full – really have alot of border line cases!!
Marian flew out on Tuesday for Illinois – to spend a month with her folks. She had talked about flying – but decided better to fly.
I've been in the grapefruit business - peeling & sectioning / freezing them. Bought 14 boxes of grapefruit – I should have enough frozen to last till next fall when they come back in season!
Have enjoyed the pool – really refreshing – I try at least a couple of times a week to get in a few laps of swimming while I'm waiting for lunch to heat up.
Today was Rob's birthday – did get a rushed card off in the mail for him 1st of the week. I'm not like G'ma who never forgets a BIRTHDAY!
We are having to RAISE the rates at Sr. Village – as of July about $30 per person. With Social Security raise not coming till January – I'm sure it's not going to be a popular idea. Going to drop the Bomb tomorrow – I'm glad to be going on VACATION after that bombshell.
Remind me to tell you all about the story of Vera (the gal in her upper 90's) – how she was in a nursing home - then got put in a private home – now thank goodness - back in a nursing home! I'm anxious to hear the real life stories of Mary Virginia – life in the nursing home!!
The County Supervisors here have sure been mud-slinging plus with the BUDGET time being here. Sr. Village looking for a generous amount to get a Sr. Village started in East Valley – Mesa or Tempe. I'm not sure if I'd give up the pool to move back to the East Valley.
Trinity Bible Church (where we go - when we go) does not have Bible School at the Church - instead they have it in member's homes. I have volunteered our home which they quickly accepted - it's while I'm gone. In some ways I'm glad of that. The gal in charge called me yesterday to ask if I could leave refreshments for all 5 days. Went out tonight & bought what should be enuf. Microwave popcorn, cookies, apples, ice cream w/cones, & crackers (sweet & salty).
I've made the arrangements for the dogs to be together while I'm gone. They will both be staying in a home in Mesa. Bought plenty of treats while I'm away. Will Piper be coming to the wedding?
Much love, Roberta
