Spent from 7:30am to 2:30pm at Chibola Middle School in Yuma. Five women from our park have volunteered to do health checks on all the students. They needed a sub so I am it.
We do weight, height, blood pressure, eyes, hearing and scolioses (sp). They have been there 3 times and think they will need at least 5 more. I will cover again Wednesday and probably more as people leave for the season.
Then at 3pm 14 of us took a two hour class on hand applique 4 of us were from the above group and really tired by the time we were through.

Busy Week End

Jim and Betty McCollum stopped by Thursday afternoon and we played Marbles and Jokers then ordered a pizz and then played Hand and Foot. Had a great visit catching up on people we both know in Oregon.
Friday had updated our cell phones and YEAH WE JOINED THE 20TH CENTURY.......got off dial up and went to wireless...(well they said something about erthnet...erthlink or etc....any way we are lots faster and hopefully will not be kicked off line as often as we were with the UNNAMED dial up. Don played Texas Holdum and came in second...I played bingo....and visited and complained...no bingo..same as I have done since August.
Today we were on the committee to cook breakfast. Served 140 people from 7:30am to 9:00am. Cleaned up then checked out the park garage sale (here and park next door) only thing I bought was an angle food cake pan.
This afternoon we have the toilet races and both a dance here in the park and the Yuma Festival Square Dance. We will go to the Yuma Fest and catch up with more Oregon dancers who have came down to visit.
