Hee Haw Show En­ter­tains Many

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

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.
