Wednesday lunch and activities

After a fun event at our weekly Computer Club meeting, I could hear the lovely sound of piano music outdoors and remembered that it was Wednesday patio lunch so decided to stay for a delicious coney dog and some of Robin's wonderful french fries.  Also had broccoli salad and a scrumptious peanut butter cookie for dessert.  Thank you to Dolores Forbis for sharing her great musical talent at that piano.  It's such a pleasure to listen to her play.  

Wednesday lunch is such a nice way to gather with friends on the patio.

I saw this happy group of gals enjoying their lunch before they head off to their weekly beading club.

They were willing to show off some of the handiwork they had with them.  They give classes on how to make all these masterpieces. 

Sharon Marchant was setting up in the Sonora room for their meeting.  Sharon comes periodically with her truckload of beads and findings plus offers classes as well.

I passed by the Welcome Station and said a friendly hello to our rangers and hostesses.  I still remember how impressed I was when we first drove into Palm Creek (12 years ago) and were greeted by friendly folks ready to help us and get us settled in to our spot.  

 The Adobe Room is busy 24/7 as there are always card players in there.  Want to play along?  Stop in around 12:15 most any day and see what the groups are playing.  Many times they can invite you to join them.  Today this table was full with some Texas Hold'em players who choose not to participate in our nightly tournaments.


A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket.
The husband picks up a case of beer and puts it in their cart.
"What do you think you're doing?" asks the wife.
"They're on sale, only $20 for 24 cans" he replies.
"Put them back, we can't afford them" demands the wife.
They carry on shopping.

A few aisles farther on, the woman picks up a $40 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.
"What do you think you're doing?" asks the husband.
"It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful," replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: "So does 24 cans of beer, and it's half the price."
That's him, there in Aisle 5.
