Weather was the topic of conversation this week with the concern about being out in it on Tuesday, and by Friday many who drive did not come. When it is so hot it is just harder to get motivated to come.
We had a call from my brother-in-law in Missouri to check on us. We asked about the weather there and he said it had rained early in the morning and was in the high 80s, but humidity was 82.
So, to compare, here it is just dry/hot. There it is very wet/hot so everything feels wet and sticky all the time. We have air conditioning here so it is pleasant with the temperature at the high 70s.
Mary Margret Davis is trying to get the pinochle games going at the Senior Center again on Saturdays. If you are interested, please call her at 208-476-5730. I am sure they would love to have you join them. At least two or three would be awesome.
We were hoping to get cool air moving by reminding you of all the fun we will have on Dec. 4, 7 a.m., for our Pancake Breakfast, Christmas Bake/Gift Sale, and Christmas Raffle. I know that was a bit cheesy, but we want you all to put it on your calendars.
We have jams and jellies for sale every Tuesday and Friday, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Of course, while you are there to get some jams and jellies you might as well have lunch with us for all are welcome. Lunch is $6 for non-seniors and $5 for seniors, as a donation.
Stoddard Electric are our hometown heroes for making sure menus are in the Clearwater Tribune each month. For many of the home delivery people it is their only way to know what is for lunch.
