BINGO! There’s power in that little word! Three times a week I head for the Bingo room to try my hand at winning. I figured out there is no strategy with playing the game. You get to pick three cards for a buck, but the caller never calls my numbers…what gives? Is there some trick to Bingo that I am not aware of? Are certain numbers better than others? Is it where I sit? Is it with whom I sit? Please if you have an answer, let me know. It’s not losing a dollar that bothers me, it’s people winning the money!!
Today we had a session called HIGH STAKES BINGO. The cost was $2 for three cards. The winnings were much more than usual: $10-15 each game and $50 for coverall. Two times I had one number left to be called. Two times I lost! Come on you Bingo players universal…what’s the catch?
By the way, I am not a gambler. I just use the game as an outing for pleasure.
Just a short note today. Living in this Independent Living Facility is pretty cool. I get breakfast cooked to my taste everyday; I don’t have to clean toilets anymore; I can play cards to my heart’s content; I can go to Bingo three times a week and not have to go outside; I can go and come as I wish; they even take out my trash; Our apartments are cleaned once a week; I don’t have to make beds anymore; Lunch and dinner are yummy in the dining room; the servers love all of us; and there is something to do if I am ever bored!
If you have issues with your body falling apart (or have a bad back and neck like I do), this is the best place to live. There is a heated pool, a card room, social room, craft room, billliard room, chapel, and a drug store all on the property. Check it out. We have been here almost a year.
When you get to see a picture like this, it deserves to be shot. These guys really know how to party. Notice that they give each other room to move, but yet are very content to be all together…much like we do in our independent living facility. It is great to have people all around us, but we have our own space…a beautiful big apartment.
Took this pic in AZ and love the flower on the spiny cactus. It reminds us that life can be both beautiful and full of thorns. We have to take the bad with the good and hope for better days. Even when you’re seventy, you’ll have beautiful memories to live on…
The day we ventured over to the Grand Canyon, it was mostly cloudy. The sun came out for a short time, so I captured one photo with some light in it.
Picture of the rocks in AZ. Loved our visit to see the Grand Canyon, but also the beautiful city of Sedona. If you travel, these are a must see.
For the past twenty-five years I have held a Bible Study once a week in our home. Here at the Isles, I offer a Women’s Bible Study once a week on Tues. nights, 6:15 pm. Tuesday night we began a study of James. James is a pretty important disciple of Jesus. In the first place, he is believed to be Jesus’ half brother. Secondly, he became the head of the church in Jerusalem after Jesus’ death and resurrection. My Bible Study is non-denominational, which mean any Christian faith is welcomed. One of my members is catholic and told me that Jesus had no brothers or sisters…that Mary remained a virgin throughout her life. Is there any proof one way or the other?
Thanks for your answer in advance, My reference: John 7:5
