Lin­coln Se­nior Adults En­joy Out­ing To See Blooms

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

The Lin­coln Se­nior Cen­ter bus was full of mem­bers as they made the an­nual trip to Musko­gee, Okla., to en­joy the beauty of the aza­leas in Honor Heights Park. They were a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed in the lack of color, as the re­cent cold weather had set back the open­ing of the buds. They did, how­ever, en­joy the trip, and eat­ing out along the way.

Some of my aza­leas were far enough along that they were dam­aged, others have en­cour­ag­ing green buds, and two are in bloom. Hope­fully, the bushes them­selves were not dam­aged.

Now, May is here, and surely, spring. So, May is Bet­ter Sleep month, fam­ily sup­port, fam­ily well­ness, older Amer­i­cans, healthy vi­sion, high blood pres­sure, stroke aware­ness, al­lergy and asthma aware­ness, arthri­tis, men­tal health, clean air, cor­rect pos­ture, bar­be­cue, egg, ham­burger, salad, salsa, garage sale, mov­ing, bike, book, and smile month. So, take good care of your­self, eat well, and SMILE!

We also have VE Day May 8, and Memo­rial Day, May 28.

Now a lit­tle hu­mor (could be true?) from a pub­li­ca­tion:

The Navy in­ter­cepted a boat­load of peo­ple off the Texas coast to­day.

This placed the Navy in an awk­ward po­si­tion as the boat was not head­ing to the U.S.A., but to­wards Mex­ico and Cen­tral Amer­ica.

An­other sur­prise was that the peo­ple were white Amer­i­can re­tire­ment age se­niors. Their claim was they were try­ing to get to Cen­tral Amer­ica or South­ern Mex­ico as they wanted to re­turn to the U.S. as im­mi­grants. Then they would be en­ti­tled to far more ben­e­fits than they were re­ceiv­ing as le­git­i­mate Amer­i­can re­tirees.

It is be­lieved the Navy gave them food, wa­ter, and fuel and as­sisted them on their jour­ney.

We are book­ing on the next boat out. Let me know if you want to join us.

Happy birth­day to Ni­cole Evans, Allen Caswell, Brad Crudup, Or­rin Hacker, Stephanie Reed, Alexa James, Louis Guess, Ethan May.

Happy years, all!
