Gary and his Men’s Group were there when the crafters got there.  That was nice.  I am so  glad they seem  to have found a new ‘old’ home!

There was a nice turnout for the rock painting this morning.

Today, I think, was a great success!

We had 35 members and 2 new members, Paul and Diane.  Paul was a school superintendent and Diane was a teacher. 

The kitchen committee did a superb job.  Everyone pitched in, there were a few little stressful moments, but everyone pulled together and we got’r’done!  Everyone seemed to have a great time.
Thanks to Josie for providing the turkey.   ALL the food was just delicious.

Bingo was well attended and six of us played 5 Crowns until 4:30.  Gayle and Anna played Scrabble too.
 
Gary Spivey’s Men’s Coffee Group came in the morning for coffee and they even made breakfast!  There were 7 of them, then several of them came back for lunch and brought more!

JOKE: A husband in his back yard is trying to fly a kite. He throws the kite up in the air, the wind catches it for a few seconds, then it comes crashing back down to earth. He tries this a few more times with no success. All the while, his
wife is watching from the kitchen window, muttering to herself how men need to be told how to do everything. She opens the window and yells to her husband, ‘You need a piece of tail’ The man turns with a confused look on his face and says, ‘Make up your mind. Last night, you told me to go fly a kite!’


PRAYER:  Lord we come before You with Thanksgiving for all we are blessed with today and everyday food and fellowship time to spend together. We ask that you bless this food, nourish our body and always consider those less fortunate. In Jesus name we pray. Amen

JOKE: Ducks in heaven

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven, When they get there, St. Peter says, We only have one rule here in heaven: Don’t step on the ducks!

So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck.

Although they try their best to avoid them, The first woman accidentally steps on one.Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!

The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck And along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is VERY careful where she steps, She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St.Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on…. Very tall, long lashes, muscular, St.Peter chains then together without saying a word,

The happy woman says, I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all eternity?? The guy says, I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a duck… 

Prayer: Lord, we Thank you that we can gather together with family and friends to share in food , drink and enjoy time together. Bless our Veterans that are with us here today, and those around our nation, We thank them for their service because without them we would not to be to enjoy this beautiful country we live in! Bless this food, may it nourish us and the fellowship we share. Be with us always in our hearts, In Jesus name we pray. Amen

November’s First Friday Potluck

On the way into Liberty Hill the clouds opened up and tried to drown us. Well that’s a little melodramatic. But it did rain really hard.

I said to Ella, “I wonder how many will be there?” The answer was two: Ella and I were the only ones there. But we had plenty to eat. We had the leftovers from Thursday – chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy etcetera. Plus Ella made pumpkin bars and I had brought beef stew. The chicken I bagged and froze for some future use.

Fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, pinto beans, sliced peaches, and a variety of desserts. Yum!

The History Corner discussing the

Many chose to play bingo after lunch.

5 Crowns card game was
played by four of us.
I was not the biggest loser
and that’s all I have to say about that

OTHG 11-03-2022 SIGN-IN SHEET 
Has everyone signed in? Good, 
Celeste’s daughter contacted me the other day about using the building on first Saturday in December. I told her that we miss Celeste and her hats. Everyone who knows her probably has a hat story 
When is our hat day and shirt day this month? The 2nd Thursday is always hat day. The 4th Thursday is shirt day. Except this month because the 4th Thursday is Thanksgiving and we will be closed.

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Operation Liberty Hill food drive. Notice the donation Barrell is in the front hallway.. I encourage you/us to bring at least one can of food (more if you’re able) through November.  If you would rather donate money/check we can do that also. If you write a check, make it out to Operation Liberty Hill, not to Over The Hill Gang. 

CHANGE Wednesday Bible study start time moved a half hour to 2:30 hopefully that helps with traffic. 

We need volunteers to assist with meal planning and preparation. This is not a lifetime commitment.Raise your hand if you are willing to be on this committee.  

Also help with cleanup and putting away after lunch is always appreciated. We delay playing games until cleanup is done – that gives everyone a chance to play. 
Many hands make light work. 

This last Tuesday, November first, was to be the time to create the fall gnome wreath. However, Pat attempted to walk on air when she reached the end of the walk way. It will be rescheduled to NEXT Tuesday


And Tomorrow evening, Friday the 4th,  POTLUCK AND GAMES from 7-9ish

Joke: If you are offended by blonde jokes, feel free to change their hair color to any shade you prefer. Feel free to change their gender, in your mind, also.

 A young blonde woman was pulled over for speeding. The traffic cop that pulled her over was also a young blonde woman. The cop asked for the driver’s license. She dug around in her purse for a while and then ask, “What does it look like?”  

The traffic cop said, “It’s  a rectangle and it has your picture on one side.” 

The blonde driver pulls out her compact, opened it, and said, “Oh here it is” and showed it to the cop. 

The blonde cop looked at it and said, “Oh I didn’t realize you were a traffic cop also you may go.”

Prayer: Lord, Thank you for family and friends Thank you for times like these Where we can gather together, Share in food, drink and relax. Please bless this meal, and all that it means. May the food nourish us, And the fellowship enrich our lives. Most of all, may we always invite you into our homes, And into our hearts. Amen.
