Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

Here we are at the end of Septem­ber, amaz­ing how fast the summer goes and yet the winter lasts so long. I think I have posted this joke be­fore but it is one of my fa­vorites. “Do you re­mem­ber summer? Sure, that was a nice day for a pic­nic!”

The har­vesters are strug­gling along, get­ting a few hours be­hind the com­bine wheel ev­ery odd day, but they are op­ti­mistic and con­tinue to take sam­ples and keep go­ing. Please be mind­ful of the large ve­hi­cles on the roads this time of year, they have a lot of blind spots and may not see you be­hind them so please make al­lowances for them and be care­ful.

Linda Helmer was kind enough to drop off the names of the birth­day cel­e­brants at the St. Mary’s Lodge for Au­gust and Septem­ber. I apol­o­gize for not get­ting them to you sooner. In Au­gust there were five peo­ple cel­e­brat­ing their birth­days in Ex­tended Care; Margo Hen­ning, Lou Frere, Mary Cham­bers, Au­drey Smith, Dick Vick­ery. In the Lodge, there was only one birth­day goer, Mary Scheibler. In Septem­ber, Mar­i­lyn Olm­stead hosted the birth­day party and there were three cel­e­brat­ing their mile­stones. Betty Cheshire stay­ing in Ex­tended Care and Ida Syd­ness and Ber­nice Brosseau from the Lodge came to blow out the can­dles. The next birth­day party will be held on Oc­to­ber 17 and Lois Kiemele will be the host­ess.

I know it is a lit­tle early to be talk­ing about the Fall Sup­per but might as well make sure you mark it onto the cal­en­dar. It will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 5 start­ing at 5:00 p.m. This is al­ways a de­li­cious meal with con­tri­bu­tions from all the fam­i­lies of the com­mu­nity and a great chance to catch up with the neigh­bours.

Baylee and Claire are still look­ing for ven­dors for their first an­nual Christ­mas Mar­ket so if you are in mind to book a ta­ble be sure to get hold of them be­fore space runs out. It will be held on Novem­ber 26 in the af­ter­noon.

I had to in­clude this joke be­cause this is ex­actly how my golf game is mea­sured:

Af­ter a round of golf, four ladies sat around the club house, chat­ting.

See­ing the ladies, the Pro ap­proached them and asked: “How did your game go?

The first lady, a brunette, said she had a good round ... mak­ing the com­ment that she ac­tu­ally had 25 riders. The Pro was a bit per­plexed not know­ing what a “Rider” was.

The sec­ond was a blonde lady who quickly chimed in and said that she had a very good round as well with 16 riders.

The third lady then said that her round was av­er­age and that she only had 10 riders.

The fourth lady ad­mit­ted that she played the worst round of the day and that she only had 2 riders all day long.

The Pro was com­pletely con­fused not know­ing what the term “rider” meant. But, be­cause he didn’t want to look dumb, he made a quick po­lite re­mark, wished the ladies well and then left.

He then ap­proached the bar­tender and asked “Hey, can you tell me what these ladies are talk­ing about when they re­fer to “Riders”?”

The bar­tender sim­ply smiled and said... “A ‘Rider” is when you hit a shot long enough to ride on the golf cart to your ball.

Have a great week.
