Happy August! I've been busy & haven't had a chance to write. Keeping a houseful of people busy is quite the job and so much fun! Residents have been teaching me to play Pinochle...it is quickly becoming the "new fun game" of the house. I didn't think anything could surpass Bingo or Crosswords, but I think we just might have found a "new" group pastime! I'm always looking for something that will fill the bill & I think I stumbled onto something. Have a great Friday.
