Thursday lunch and games, 01-26-2023

Before lunch Gary Spivey have us an audio visual with commentary about Liberty Hill’s past. I hope he had more for us.

This is just a few seconds of the 20 minute video he brought.
Everyone was very intent on the presentation.
Gary was glad to answer questions and provide extra background information.

Then it was time for lunch. We had a special treat today. Phill prepared and served a Lebanese lunch. It was enjoyed by all.

There were many wonderful desserts today. I don’t know exactly what was there. At least 3 pies, an apple cobbler, cookies, cake, ice cream, and I’m sure more that I can’t recall.

Games! There were games!

Five Crowns card game
Those who chose to not play games, gathered in conversation
Merle just had to see what was behind that door in the ceiling. What she found was an attic full of ducts — not to be confused with ducks. 😁 She also discovered a quilters frame. Now, what can we do with that?

Please stop table talk and silence your phones.

Any new folks today?
(Why not? Y’all trying to keep this a secret?)
Have y’all signed in? It helps us with our documentation and, as you know, puts you on the drawing for a prize. 

PARTLY PERSONAL: this may well be the last time you see Ella and me for awhile. I begin radiation this time next week. The average length of treatments is 45 days. I don’t know what my treatment schedule will be. If we are able, we will still be here on Thursdays.

That, however, means we have stepped down as board members. The board, according to our bylaws, must consist of 6 members. Jannett has agreed to fill the presidency spot. That means we need a new vice president and a director to serve until the yearly electio bes
It is the board’s duty to fill these positions. So if asked, please say yes. Thank you 

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Your craft supplies and bingo prizes donations are appreciated. Please bring them and leave in the office area.

THANK YOU GARY SPIVEY for giving us a Look Back at Liberty Hill. We look forward to hearing more about the history of this chunk of God’s country. 

ON A SIMILAR NOTE: Liberty Hill Long range planning. Will speak to us next Thursday, February 2nd, during our lunch.

THANK YOU FOR DONATING TO-GO CONTAINERS with lids. Keep ’em coming in.  Use them, wash them, and bring them back to be used again.

JOKE:.  Perfect Marriage?
A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other, except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day, the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside.

She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents. “When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.”

The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

“Honey,” he said, “that explains the dolls, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”

“Oh,” she said. “That’s the money I made from selling the dolls. 

PRAYER: by one of our members.
