Friends Bill and Charle Cash, Mark and Dawn Cortwright, Gracie Telian, Jim and Joanne DeWitt, Wayne Shepard, and Linda Shepard met at Danny’s in Walton for lunch on Saturday and to celebrate Bill and Gracie’s birthdays. Gracie, a few weeks ago, hurt her leg and had been hobbling around and as a joke Jim presented her a artificial leg wrapped up in a blanket. We all, including Gracie, had a big laugh over Jim’s speech and his leg presentation to Gracie. Thanks to Gracie for the fun and our dinner.

My Thoughts of the week: College is back in session so be careful because traffic around Delhi is heavy and fast. Kids are always in a hurry to get where they want to go.

Lynn Kinch’s joke of the week: A young woman applying for a clerk job took a test that included the question, “What is the distance of the earth from the sun?” She responded, “I am unable to state this accurately but I don’t believe the sun is close enough to interfere with the proper performance of my duties if I get this position.” And she did.

Senior Moments: A grandmother was sitting with her young granddaughter. “A penny for your thoughts, dear?” “Sorry grandma,” replied the young girl. “Maybe it was a penny in your day but with inflation all my thoughts are at least 85 cents, plus tax.”

A cute saying: America is a land of wonders.

Helpful Hints: Take an egg camping. Instead of worrying about transporting eggs on your next camping trip, break your eggs into a plastic wide mouth thermos jug. You don’t have to baby them, just keep the container cool. The egg won’t break - they won’t even separate from their own whites.
