Hee Haw Show Entertains Many
Attendance at the Hee Haw show in the Lincoln Senior Center Saturday, exceeded all expectations.
The cooks had prepared for 150. To count, they served 136 rolls and four loaves of bread, many more that 150. I heard so many comments on the delicious meal, especially the “fork-tender” brisket. Three high school girls were kept busy serving, with some help.
The kitchen band started the show, with members marching in to the tune of “When the saints go marching in,” and after a few songs and jokes, marched out to the tune of “I’ll fly away.”
Then Lincoln’s own Hee Haw show kept the crowd laughing for the next two hours, with the whole cast entertaining, including their own “Minnie Pearl.”
All who attended enjoyed a great show as well as contributing to the good cause, our Senior Center operation.
This unusual August weather continues. Monday had a heavy fog that didn’t burn off by 11 a.m. as usual. Instead, it was so dark the lights had to be turned on, and I thought, “This isn’t the eclipse day.” If the 21st is as cloudy, no one can see the eclipse. We’ll see.
The clouds opened up and we received another inch of rain, watering the hydrangeas again. Ironically, the tubs of runoff water are full, and so far it hasn’t been needed.
This great-grandma just has to share. Monday was the first day of kindergarten for our little Mason Roy. That afternoon, his mother asked him how he did, and he said “I thought I was going to throw up, so I said a little prayer to Jesus, and I felt better.”
Happy birthday to Eloise Parker, Jay Norton, Kirsten May, Nathan Prater, Reba Moore, Caitlyn Vanatta, Troy Bradley, Bob Bush, George Schooler, Brooklyn Roy, Aiden Barbosa, and Alexa Barbosa (twins).
Happy anniversary to Hollis and Verla Barker, Larry and Betty Bell. Happy years, all! Remember recycling Monday.
